Default 20" Track Wheels? GTR Sizing DPE Forged Monoblock Test Fit

Had a chance to test fit some newly released DPE monoblock wheels tonight before they shipped out to a GTR owner, didn't get too many great pics but here they are anyway in case anyone wants to check them out.

Wheels and tires are spec'd for a 2009 Nissan GTR so specs might be a bit off from standard 370Z fittment but they seem to be really close to what I'd run if I was wanting a set of 20" track wheels.

20x10.5 front w/Toyo 888 285/35/20
20x11.0 rear w/Toyo 888 315/30/20

Front looks like it could go out another 5-10mm if car was lowered with a bit of negative camber. As it sits now there is no rubbing but inner clearance to the suspension arm/spindle is close.

Rear can go wider as well since there's still 1.5" clearance to the nearest suspension parts on the inside (traction rod & shock body). Outside is a good fit but could come out another 5-10mm if car was lowered with negative camber, especially if running a slightly narrower tire.

Could really use some larger brakes under these huge wheels, anyone make some 16" rotors?

Wheels are DPE Monoblock MT-20 which uses the new concave forging, these were done in a custom gold/bronze color which is very nice in person.

I didn't ask how much these go for, I know they're all custom made to order based on car and customer needs so best thing to do would be to email them. This set got done at SPP, they're a dealer for DPE here in OC. Welcome to SupremePower | SUPREMEPOWER

If I had to guess I'd say probably no less than $400 per/wheel and no more than $700 per/wheel. Will probably depend on sizing and finish options too.

These are extremely expensive, but great wheels. I am not a fan of the style on the car, but not bad on knowing gtr wheels can fit a z haha.

It doesn't make financial sense to me.


Car looks nasty with those wheels though.
