I'm looking into changing my "09 18's to the "10 19" Rays (Australia). My bro just bought a 2010 but likes my rims better (not sure why) so I'm trying to convince him to trade haha

Anyways, my question is whether I would need to change anything in relation to offset's etc if I was to swap, or would it be as simple changing all rims?

It's just a simple change of rims.

Just keep in mind that, on your brother's car, there's going to be a peg screwed into the front rotor hat that's designed to prevent you from mounting the rear Ray's rims onto the front. You might have to unscrew this to put your wheels on his car... I'm not sure, just keep it in mind when you swap.

will do, if I can pursuade him that is, haha.

although after putting them on it will look like 90% of the Z's here? but I must say that the look of the 19's is growing on me. With the 18's the profile of the tyres looks too fat IMO.

They definitely don't look very sporty... they are pretty bland. The 19" Rays are very nice and match the car perfectly.

Don't forget to go to the dealer after X0 miles so they can reset the TPMS. start looking for a $0-charge dealer; else, be ready to fork out some dough.
