just trying them on my car for a few weeks to see how I like them...








they are 17" wheels from a base model 2003 infiniti g35 (as u can see i removed the infiniti centercap)

my coworker got new wheels and so i'm borrowing for now to get a feel for them...so far i like them...little bit more road noise...but these bald ass 17" and i used to have the stock 15" with new tires (bought them in november)

the bridgestone turanza's on these wheels are no their last legs....


they are now 215/r55/17 wheels on them i will replace them with 215/r50/17 if possible...

what do you guys think?

i know the pics are dark and the wheels are dirty...but i took these right afteri put the wheels on....

the car has 107k miles on it and i may be replacing the struts when i do that i may just swap in some springs to lower the car an inch or so...

the wheel gap doesn't really bother me too much...

only thing that worries me a little is the fact that my stock wheels have a 38mm offset and these are 45mm

no rubbing (it will probably rub when i have a few ppl in the back seat) but i think a lower profile tire will take care of that...

also because of the offset when i put my stock wheels on to tighten the lug nuts i turn it 9 times with this wheel it was 7 times...

not that big of a difference but just something i noticed!

Why are you using wheels from a non toyota car. I'm not liking it in my opinion. It's weird and loses the toyota look.:mad:

i'm using them cuz i'm probably going to get them for free

and if i wouldn't have told you they were from a g35 then you probably wouldn't not have known they are non toyota...

besides i have 108k miles on my car and ijust got it in oct 2000 brand new with 200 miles so i needed something that imo made my car look different and a little better...

:donno: something makes them look off balance, but I think with lower pro tries will fix that .... like rapsux says

make sure to get hubcentric rings if you buy em :)
yea i'll get the hubcentric rings when i get new tires....i'm also going to look for toyota centercaps that will fit those wheels i'm sure i'll be able to find them....

i'll probably end up payin $80 for the rims...

and a new set of tires i'll probably get for 400-500

pretty cheap for a set of rims/tires!

Looks good so far! :thumbup: Just keep anything "infiniti" off the rims. I thought about taking the rims off of my dad's I35 (6-poke 17s with the sport package), and might convince him to do it when he needs new tires...
