Default 15" Weld RTS's Installed

Finished throwing a pair of 15" Weld RTS S71's on my G35 Coupe, figured I'd post a little info on how I went about it since I wasn't able to find any info on it previously.

Car was originally an OEM Brembo car so I had to install base model brakes onto my car first.

Here's all that was needed:

2003 - 2005 base model 350Z/G35 rear calipers, rotors, and pads
(4) M12 x 35mm 1.25 pitch bolts and washers to secure the calipers to the rear spindles (original Brembo hardware did not fit)
New rear brake lines (I purchased braided StopTech lines from Concept Z Performance)
You'll also need to trim the dust shield very slightly where the caliper mounts to the rear spindle

Onto the wheels, I ended up purchasing Weld RTS S71's in 15x8.33 w/5.5" of backspacing. As for tires I went with 275/60/15 Nitto 555R's. With these wheels and tires I didn't need to cut or roll fenders, etc.

For what it's worth, I definitely wouldn't recommend this setup to anyone making less that 500whp or so.

What did this 15" wheel/tire combo end up weighing (per wheel)?
