Can I do:

Front - Work CR Ultimate (Kiwami) Wheel - 19x9.5 / 5x114.3 / +25mm Offset (245/35/19)
Both are deep concave style. Will these clear the brakes and have a flush look?
Won’t be flush. Brake clearance is questionable - contact work or a work retailer to specifically ask about this.

Read this
Wheel Fitment 101: START HERE

EDIT:
I quickly went through this thread and it appears 19x9.5 +25 will clear our brakes.

To elaborate on fitment. Those sizes will fit, but they are a fairly standard fitment for cars without an aggressive drop. The good part, you don't need camber arms or fender work. The bar part, they aren't nearly as flush as they could be. There will be plenty of clearance, esp with those sizes.

The tires that Rusty suggested may actually rub without adjustment or fender work depending on your height.

The wheels themselves hold you back from achieving an aggressive stance, unless you add spacers. There is no size offered that is aggressive enough.

Also, i THINK these wheels are discontinued. The Work website only has the regular work CR Ultimates, not the kiwami spec. My recollection is that the Kiwami was a limited extra concave variant of the CR ultimates, which is why you may be getting just leftover stock from your retailer (or used?). These came out around 2013.

Question on Volk TE37 Ultra M Spec.

I have a Gun Metallic 370Z and I think the bronze color TE37s would look really good on it. The issue is Rays seems to have discontinued the Bronze color for the OG TE37 and the whole OG TE37 lineup that came in the right size and offset.

So the good offset for our Z's is front :19" x 9.5" +22 and rear: 19" x 10.5" +12.

Rays has now a new model called TE37 Ultra M Spec, which comes in bronze color. They have the right size and offset for the front but for the rear they only have 19" x 10.5" +32

https://www.rayswheels.co.jp/product...ltra_m&lang=en

My question, would the +32 clear the rear sport package brakes? I guess it would look sunk as hell but should be fixed with a 20mm spacer, which would make the effective ET +12 - if I have understood correctly...

Other option would be to source some used TE37's and just have them repainted to the desired color. I know some replica brands would probably offer what I'm looking for but I don't want replica wheels.

I looked into this issue bc it was odd to see the sizes reduced greatly from just a year or so ago; certainly fewer than when I ordered.

My wheel guy, a Rays distributor, confirms that 19x9.5 +22 / 19x10.5 +12 is discontinued they are not popular sizes; HOWEVER, he can still order them. There is probably stock lying around either at Mackin (North American importer) or Japan.

Unfortunately he does not ship to Finland. He says you will need to provide your own shipping labels.

Send him an email: Tom@Speedimageusa.com

His name is Tom Nguyen, he runs Speed Image USA and moves a lot of wheels. One of the bigger retailers

I got my wheels from him

This happens with Rays. They will say something is discontinued and stop listing them, but you can still buy it. The TE37 OG has been “discontinued” a dozen times, but I still see pallets of them.

NO MATTER WHAT DONT BUY EXPENSIVE *** WHEELS IN SHITTY SIZES THAT NEED SPACERS.

Thanks a lot for the contact info and advice! I sent Tom an email. Let's hope he can hook me up with some nice Volk TE37s.
