quick offset question

if my stock offsets are +43 and my aftermarket wheels are +35, does that push the wheel and tire in 8mm or out 8mm?

Does anyone know if the stock 18s have 8 inches to come out or not?

I'm sure you will be fine. You have to consider tire size too. Check out tirerack like nismo1234 suggested.

inches? no.

mm's, as I'm sure you mean-- yes. You have more room than that, even.

We also have plenty of info in the offset discussion sticky at the top of the forum for wheels and tires! You can run up to a 10" +22 offset in the front with a 255 series tire... What you want to do is easy for our cars... I am running 10" +15 bbk fitment in my front. Don't forget you can go really aggressive in the rear as well.

Why are you going with a +35 for your aftermarket wheels? That's going to be ridiculously tucked on the 370Z. The point of aftermarket wheels, IMO, is to get them as aggressive as possible not as close to stock as possible. It's not going to look good at all.

To answer your question, it will push the wheel out. Like slammed said though, it is going to be pretty weak for your vehicle, and I would definitely suggest more aggressive fitments.

I run a 35 offset front with a 275 tire. A lot of the Z guys run the 22 but can only run a 255 on that 9.5 even when lowered.
Maybe it's because I come from a history of Corvettes but I can't run a 255 on a 9.5 inch wide wheel. It just looks stretched to me. Just my opinion guys.
