Default USW Forged Crossover on my 370Z

I just installed my custom painted USW Forged Crossover on my 370Z. I like the fact that they are constructed of high quality 6061 aluminum alloy and heat treated to a hard T6 condition allowing maximum strength for a lightweight wheel. I was attending the Formula Drift competition this weekend at the Texas Motor Speedway and saw a drift Viper with the USW Forged wheels. Good enough for me! LOL

So what do the USW Forged Crossovers look like on the 370Z? After numerous communications with Volk Z (great knowledge regarding offset, stance, lowering, etc) we finally ended up with this. Thanks so much for all of your help Chad. The Crossover's are gloss black with color matched Z Red pockets and strip.

Well what do you all think?

I'm glad I could help, I like them as they look much different then the normal wheel on a 370z. The split spoke is a great complimentary design for the 370z.

The offsets look great! Did you go 9.5 width with a +15 front or +22? The rear looks like either 10.5 width +0 or 11 width +10?
Also what tires sizes did you go with? The front looks a little stretched... 245 width up front?

I did exactly as you advised Chad as follows: "I would recommend going with the following width and offset 20x9.5+15 (tire 255-30-20) and 20x11+10 (tire 305-25-20)." They are Hankook Ventus V12 Evo K110. I plan on dropping the front a little more to look like the rear. Can't tell you how many folks at HIN like the Crossover and the setup. They loved the 11" rears big time! LOL
Thanks again for all of your expert help.

Set up looks good to me and you're right, the front could use a little more drop and.......the rears could be raised just a little bit. Unless you want it really low.

Beautiful!

I would either lower the front a half inch or get a front lip... If your brave do both. The stillen front lip would work nice for your set up.... Inexpensive and easy to install

Ok after looking at the car here is what I would do to make it POP.
Stillen front lip
Black out headlight housing (MRworks or one-eighty)
Vinyl wrap roof in matte black and do mirrors in black as well.
Color match the door handles
Cost to do all around 1000 bucks give or take

I'm excited to see it then! The black add ons will bring out the black in the wheel nicely.
Keep me posted on the progress!

You can see in my old 350z in the pic below, as you add more colors or carbon fiber on a car it allows more contrast which then makes the car POP more

i think your description of your wheel is kinda funny. who the hell spells out all that. lol

i have a brilliant silver japan enviroment friendly painted in a japanese factory over 5000 miles away bumper painted at one plant, metal panels painted at another plant, then assembled meticulously crafted by human and robotic assembly line, then road course tested, then shipped over on a vessle strapped down and then unstrapped off the boat to the dock to a truck to the dealer with only 6miles on the odo base with sport package with free illuminated sills, splash guards, wheel locks i dont need and somewhere in my parts bin, with trunk cargo carpeting that i tossed in my basement paid invoice 2009 Nissan 370Z.

did i mention made in japan?

Personally I would have gone all black spokes and left the red stripe around the wheel

Fitment looks good though

You know kenchan this 370Z belonged to my wife and she lost her battle with cancer last year. So I decided to build a tribute to her and to make people aware of the disease that took her life. I am doing what I think she would have liked in modding her Z. I find your childish attitude on the forms unacceptable and the fact that you have a following is even more disturbing. Well I have made the decision to contact the moderator and ask him to remove my name from the forum because I just don't have time to be dealing with children that lack the respect and behavoir that is considered appropriate in our society. Unfortunatly, the vendors that pay to be part of this community will suffer the consequences becasue I will not have access to their information to purchase their products and I do have deep pockets.
