Hi Guy's
I am keen as to place my order for a Carbon silver 370z, BUT.
I REALLY want to fit 19" wheels straight away.
Can someone please point me in the right direction as to where I can get rim's for a reasonable price and also that fit.
I have gone to donnelan's in Box Hill, he wanted $6000 just for Volk rims!
Also does anyone know if we can import the factory 19's from the US?

Thanks in advance.
Nick

Thanks. I have.
But not sure if these shop's ship to Australia?
So I was hoping there were some shop's in Aus. that have the right rims here for a reasonable price.

That's an insane price for volks lol...
And if your talking about buying the factory 19's I'm sure there are couple members here that have them for sale or will be more than happy to sell them to you!

shipping would be costly, just ask some vendors if they can ship something to you...
buy a nice set once....

Sorry guys. I should clarify that it's $6,000 aussie dollars plus tyres!
Works out to be about $8,500 with tyres fitted.
Does anyone one know roughly what some Volks are worth in 19" in US dollars? Is $3,500 US about right?
Thanks again for the replies.

Donnelans is a good place for tyres, but not rims!

You can buy 20" Volk GT30's direct from Japan for AUD$4400 shipped to your door.

Im buying a set in a few months....maybe we could save on shipping with two sets?

If you really want the 19" stockies, then just buy em here in the for sale section from the US.


PM if you want more details.

Hey guys, if anyone still wants to get a Z, you should probably sign the contract this week as I have heard from a few sources that that Aussie pricing is going up in the new financial year.

Thanks for the tip. I think a lot of cars are going up in price next financial year. As if us aussies aren't already paying a premium price!
