I recently sold my G35 and am excited about buying a 370Z. I kept my Volk SF Winning wheels (19x9.5 +19 front and 19x10.5 +17 rear) and would like to know if they will fit. It sounds like I will be fine in the rear (might need a 5mm spacer to be flush), but will I be ok in the front? The tires are Falken FK-452 (245/35 front and 275/35 rear). Does it matter if I buy with the Sport package or not (clearance on brake calipers)?

Those wheels/tires will work just fine on the Z with or without the sport package.

That's great news! I did not want to sell my Volks! What are your recommendations for spacers? Will I need to install extended studs for the spacers you recommend?

Go with a 15MM spacer in the rear. Most spacers will come with lug studs built in so those will act as your new studs your wheel mounts on and your stock studs will link up to the spacer and you will install like a wheel with 5 lugnuts to hold it on.

To get the similar look you had on your G35 with the +17 which was a fairly agressive setup you will need at least a 10MM spacer for it to look aggressive. To see a +0 setup google Varstoen rims they make a knockoff TE37 but they make it in a +0 and you can get the idea of basically how your rim would look with a 15MMZ spacer.

Hope this helps!

Sorry for the rant!

Need some help. Not sure if I should get a 5mm or 10mm front spacer to match the aggressive of the rears. The rears are poking while the front sits flush. What size spacer should I get for the front to match the rears?

20X9.5 +25mm (-1.75 deg camber)
20X11 +8mm (-1..2 deg camber)

dropped on swifts.

I say go for 20mm. That makes the offset be +5 thus balances the poke at the back.

Thank you for the rundown! I wasn't sure if the front wheel setup would be good for the car. I heard they would stick out too far! But I guess I could just push out the rear wheel setup like you noted. Thanks again!

you will need at least 15mm for the front and 5mm on the rears should work just fine

hubcentric spacers are the way to go. i recommend project kics and h&r. a few vendors here have them. you can PM 370Ztune, vividracing, kamispeed or fbnissan.

Thanks again bro, with those spacers it would have a good flusch look id imagine or i can go 5mm more on front and rear. seeing that it will be close to stock offsets with 15 and 5.
