I had them on a stanced rx8. So i dont think it would be too much of a hassle to get these on the g35.. you can see other pics on instagram @illestcarmedia

i dont think you can get that low of an offset on a g. here are the factory specs for 19s

19" 5 split spoke (2005+ Coupe optional)
Front: 19"x8" +30mm offset
Rear: 19"x8.5" +33mm offset

Oh, if thats what factory is .. i can definitely fit these ... the stock rx8 size is 18x8 +50... i had to do a little bit of modding to the rear quarters but not alot so they sould fit fine ... the fronts fit flawlessly on the 8 no mod needed...

The fronts won't fit, you will need a spacer to clear the spindle. Most likely 10mm will be needed

The spindle? Are you referring to the upper a arm, or the rotors? Ive been getting a few mixed answers.. a few have confirmed fitment, a clp have said some mods will be needed... so i guess i might just have to do a test fit and see

A 19x10.5 will start to fit at about +20 on the upper part of the spindle, you know that part that the upper arm bolts to. The barrel is what will rub, you can try a 5 mm spacer , but will most likely need a 10.

Right now my car is sitting on 18x10.5 +15 or +20 depending on the wheels I mount and a set if 285/35-18 up front

Ok ... im trying to figure out all the stuff needed ro make these wheels fit.. from what i understandon the suspention 101 thread, in addition to the coilovers, i will need new upper control arms in the front, camber arms and toe arms in the rear or toe bolts... and i guess 5-10mm spacers in the front.. does that sound about right? Trying to gather all the info so i can get prices on all the stuff ... anyone know aprox. The price of all the parts needed to lower the car? Im hoping its not going to be more than 2k

I hope this is the right forum for this question. I just got a set of used 19" volk gts's, 10.5 all the way around. The offset in the rear is fine, but the offset on the front are +30. I saw them on a z before I bought them and the guy had a 20mm spacer which made them stick out too far from the wheel well for my taste. My question is, what is the smallest spacer I can use to clear brembos and what tire size would you recommend to reduce rubbing? Thank you in advance.
I am running at stock height at the moment. I'm shopping for spacers right now and would appreciate some help figuring out the correct thickness.

Im just going off of what the guy told me about my setup ... i am trying to put a 19x10.5 +27 up front on mine.. it was explained that i will need a 5-10 mm spacer depending on the tire size ... so in assuming that a 10.5 would require at least +20 offset upfront

Hey guys,

I was wondering if these wheels will fit on a 350z without rolled or pulled fenders. The specs are:
18x10, offset is -15 (FR)
18x10 rear is 0 (O disk).
tires are 225/40 front and 235/40 rear

Will they rub or poke out to much? Do I have to add stupid amounts of camber? The z has a basic coilover setup with camber plates Currently at stock height but I plan on lowering it for a flush look in the future. Help will be greatly appreciated!

Default Wheel fitment question

Alright so I have a set of wheels I want to put on my 2006 350z.
the Wheels are 18x10 +25. with a 5x120 bolt pattern.
if you must know, they are APEX ARC-8 wheels.
The thinnest 5x114.3 -> 5x120 adapter i could find was an inch think.
which would set the fitment too 18x10 +0.
I am on coilovers, will they fit all the way around is my main question, will I need a pull/roll?
Is there any other way that i could fix my pattern issue? Opinions, Thank You!

Based on my research on spacers option one is to sell them and get wheels that are A the right pattern. And B quality.
Option two is roll all around and pull rear depending on tire size. If u plan on stretching well i have no knowledge on that.

With +0 offset, you definitely need a stretch on your tires at the least. Not sure if thats the look your going for. Also, +1 to the wheels with the right lug pattern note. If you decide to go the route you intend with spacers, make sure they are hub centric

Welcome- you painted yourself into a corner with the bolt pattern on those wheels. Best solution is sell them to a BMW owner and buy another set with the correct offset and bolt pattern. Using an adaptor will compromise the performance of your Z IMHO.

We can't answer this without knowing your approximate drop, alignment specs, and the size of the tires you plan on running.
