Rear Wheel offset tucked in but threw 8mm spacer a 5+3 bs spacer just to test fit, when I get them I will add a 10mm HR spacer... $1400 with tires from him

That's a good deal and all you need is a small spacer for the rear. Go for it!

as more Z's come to my area it would be nice to differentiate mine from the others... I am just nervous about the front offset being +17 on a 19x9.5 wheel...

What bugs me is MY LACK OF SPORT PACKAGE !!! Im so bummed about that, all though I have already purchased the VLSD and spoiler these wheels will make my next mod 10000% be the upgraded front akebonos followed by the rear... and prob also either coilovers or H&R springs.. which just equals $$$, with the stock wheels my car's stance is perfect with the 20mm front and 25mm rear spacers...

Im so torn, but the good thing is that 350z guys would eat these up on their forums so if i get them and change my mind I can recoop my money rather easily I would imagine.. But I do LOVE the lip and the price . These wheels arent too far off from the Spirits which would be my ideal wheel but the cost is obsiosly more than double this and the spirits would be 20s so I'd be shelling out 4k.

LMK your thoughs..

Also my tires will be smaller by 10mm front and rear once I put the NT05s on so the rear 10mm should fit easier.. Im hoping I dont have to add camber to make it work but I dont think I will have to.

Im talking as if I am getting them but I'm really like 60/40 towards getting them.

Are the rims 9.5 and 10.5?

I would get them if I were you, they look nice. You're also putting your tires on it anyways.

haha , thats funny, they would fit your 693hp "S2kripsy " very well just not sure of those offsets for you.. My buddies nickmaned my old s2k that haha... For that reason I will pick them up because it would be an easy flip if I decided not to keep them.

So essentially the 10mm spacer would make the rear +8 offset on a 19x10.5 which should Fit correct ? Appreciate the responses and help!

I might take you up on that. I had been planning on keeping my stockers as winter rims though, so I need to think about it.

Wheels look good but I would go 255-35-19 (F) & 285-35-19 (R) with the tires so that you don't have VDC issues while adding the 10mm spacer in the rear wheels.
40 series tires look weird on 19" wheels.

Great deal BTW, you're totally robbing the guy LOL

I know but Im growing more and more weary of the front offset though from reading on here though, 19x9.5+17

I am going with a 275/35/19 and 245/40/19 . The size and tires I have on my stock 19s, which is the stock sizes... maybe I mis typed something, let me check

he has 285/40/19 and 255/40/19s on them now on his 2006 350z and didnt have any vdc issues that I am aware of though so I dont know.

My buddy said he would buy my Eibach springs from me if I go with H&Rs , just saw Kevr's spirts are +15 offset and he has H&Rs with no issue, so I see light at the end of the money tunnel. Still would love to hear that its a good idea from one of the wheel dealers on here :-)
