Let's push the boundaries!

20x11 +15 front
20x12 +20 rear
Way ahead of ya. 285/35/19 on 19x10 front and 325/30/19 on 19x11.5 rear. I have a while to wait though. Early Christmas present to myself. Not as aggressive as yours but they should be just right.

the next evolution . . . (kidding)

It is funny how 9.5/10.5 was aggressive and now it's just a regular nismo set up; folks using the nismo rears all around on the track no problem

Hey guys was hoping you could help
I got a mate selling a set of 255 40 19 pilot super sport tyres cheap.
I've got a 2014 Nismo which runs 245 40 19 on the OEM rays wheels as standard. It's Lowered with kW v3 coilovers and spacers also Eibach camber kit. Can I run this wider tyre on the front? how much difference would it actually make?

You should have no problem. Many of us run 265 30 with 15 or 20mm spacers.

20x11 +15 front
20x12 +20 rear


I really want 19x11 FRONT 19x12 REAR with no tire stretch. I see your tires have a little stretch so I am curious will 11 and 12 fit without tire stretch? Stock height.

At stock height and with stock suspension settings Option Zero's setup wouldn't look anything like how it does now... Can you run them and add larger tires to square up the sidewalls? Yes. Would it look good? Most likely not.

Additionally, you'd need to have a 295 or wider tire (depending on brand) to not have any stretch on an 11, and a 315 or wider (again, depending on brand) for the 12.

stock height you'll be poking like mad
i'm at -3 F and -2 R camber.

No sense going up to 19x11 and 19x12 if you're gonna stay on stock suspension. Grab some SPL arms and coilovers and do it right

As for stretching

My 20x12 +20 rear with 315/25/20 has room to spare. Either a 5mm spacer or going up to a 325/25/20 is quite doable. The fenders are rolled and not pulled out at all, if needed, there is much further we could go

and OF COURSE, after I get my wheels, Rays releases some "bulletproof automotive exclusive" 20x12 +13 sizing for the GTR, which woulda been sick for my rears. Of course. ******* ****.

If you want less stretching, should do 20x10.5 +24 and 20x12 +20, 285/30 and 325/25. Basically the standard sizing for the GTR, you'll have face-4 concavity, much more rubber than stock, and it'll look badass

Listen to Option.

Those spec can fit at stock height, if you really want. But it will not look good at all. Will give you the "mexi-flush" fitment that a lot of people talk about online. Go with either 9.5 / 10.0 or 10.5 MAX in the front if you dont plan on lowering it.

A lot of Z guys to be safe run 19x9.5 Front 15-20ish offset / 19x10.5 - x11.0 rear with 15-20ish offset. Which looks great at stock height and with large tires lowered on springs or coilovers.

How would 19x9.5 ET22 and 19x10.5 ET20 look, with 265s and 285s, respectively? I feel like the front would be ok, but the rear might need like a 5mm spacer? Thoughts? Should I up the tire size? 275 and 295? 285 and 305? I'd like to keep the bias the same as oem.

I found some TE-37s in the above mentioned size, for $3500, asking. Not sure if I should jump on them, or not.

I'm on stock suspension now, but will look to going with some Ark lowering springs, in due time.

5mm last i looked was less than 1/4"..can 1/4 inch spacer really make a difference in looks.

Fronts are easy. 19x9.5 +22 is the standard TE37 fitment that everyone uses without any work, on 265's

19x10.5 will look like ***. The STOCK NISMO is 19x10.5 +23 with 285/35, so google any stock Nismo and you can see how sunk it is

The standard fitment of TE37 19x10.5 +12 is better, but still sunk a bit

Something like 19x10.5 +0 is what you need to be flush, but then you need more aggressive fronts too and probably m0@r low

Anyways, i would look for a different set that comes in 19x9.5 +22/19x10.5 +12 and throw a small spacer in the rear if you HAVE to go that route. Will work with 265/305

Ill have more pics after the little photoshoot with a friend in July...but here are a couple I took this evening.

Work XSA04c 20/10" +10 20/11.5" +15. Rear fender measure 26.25" from the ground and the front is just about the same, maybe 26.5".

Camber, Im not sure of just yet. I leave for vacation tomorrow so the alignment wont happen for about 10 days. Obviously not taking the Z. I will be increasing on the front to stop the rubbing and I will probably go to -3 to -3.5 in the rear to possibly toss a 10mm spacer in the rear.
