Help with a change of alloys

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I am looking to change the wheels on my 06 350z and would appreciate some help/suggestions! 

 

At the moment I have a set of calibre 19" alloys on it (previous owners wheels) running 235/35 tyres front, and 275/35, tyres on the back, but personally I'm not a fan of the wheels or how rough it is on the roads (loads of speed bumps where I live, and even more potholes) so I'm looking to go back down to 18" alloys with a 40 series tyre profile. 

 

The wheels I have been looking at, are Japan Racing JR11s, and Japan Racing JR32 alloys, 

What do people think of these alloys, or any other suggestions of what I could look into? 

 

Thanks all in advance!

I had jr11 on my 350z and I loved them. Nice concave and they looked awesome. Looking at the jr32 they would look great too I think. But it’s an entirely personal choice tbh and it’s all about the colour you choose. :thumbs:

These OEM GT4 alloys are one of my favourite 18" rims for the zed.

 

Literally only just noticed, to my eye they look a little like the OEM RX-8 wheels. Same era I guess.

I’m literally in the process of getting my jr32s, 3dsm and 7twenty do some really nice alloys for the z, depends on the budget and your personal preference

I had Enkei RPF1s in 18" on one of my Zeds. Perfect lightweight 18" wheel for a Z and affordable for a good quality wheel :)

Those are rather nice. Though when I was chatting to the guys at Tarmac Sportz about them, they seemed to think substantial arch adjustment was needed to fit them :/

That's a shame, its a shame there are no shows or meetings at the moment, thats probably the best places for looking at wheels, it also depends on what your budget is, its a bit of a mine field when your looking for wheels

Azurez33, what setup are you going for with the JR32s? i was looking for 18x10.5 rears, but the only fronts i can find i think will need the arches flared to fit. if you have any more information on these please let me know! - the issue im having is find wheels that will clear the brembo calipers, but not stick out past the arches!

I really like those LMGT4s, 

 

im looking to get a set of wheels with a deep concave face, rather than a dished alloy like i currently have on the car!

just need to keep money aside for tyres too as im dropping from a 19" to an 18", current price for tyres is going to be around 4-500 quid so im trying to keep myself to 900ish for the wheels
