Need your opinion.

About to pick up 20" Zenetti chrome split 5's.

Do you think it would look too pimp? I'm a broker and pick up old time businessmen all the time. Would the rims make me look like a dealer or what. My car is all black,smoked glass, and chrome trims.

Hhmmm in my personal opinion I think 20's would be a bit too big...so YES too pimpish if you will. hehe I would go with 19's...not too big but fill it out alot more than 18's and look better!

I have 20's on my g35 and strangley enough I have actually recieved quite a few compliments from some old guys whom I thought would probably not really approve of them. My dad is putting 20" Zenetti's on his g35 coupe and he's in his 50's so I say go with the 20's.

Do you have any pics of your g35 sitting on 20's?

If I had to go 20s on a coupe I would definitely first have a bodykit, then a slight drop in ride height. This is to bring the G back to original or even lower height after the 20s having brought it up. I would definitely go with an elegantly spoked out aluminum wheel (non-chrome), with center to match car exterior and a high polished deep dish lip.

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum as well as a new G35 owner. If anyone is looking for wheels let me know, I work at a shop in Tempe, AZ called Wheel Specialists. We're a wholesale tire/wheel warehouse and we distribute about 50-60 brands of wheels. Everything from high end to commodity priced wheels. In response to your wheels preference, I have to agree with xzellerate on the silver wheel with a lip idea. It looks so sporty and classy with a 19 or 20 inch silver wheel. Chrome is nice too but in my opinion you can't beat a nice silver wheel. My wheels are on the way, they are 19x9 inch Giovanna Genoa in silver. I'll post pics when it's done.

Now all you need is wheels

Hotwheels,

Those Genoas look pretty sweet. I've been checking out the OZ Chronos (which I've always liked), the Enkei RP02-J's and RSF-2's. Any opinions on any of these. Is there anywhere we can find the weight on these?

I've always like the Axis NE-O, and had them on my fully built G20 (Pics coming soon) in the gunmetal insert color. Might throw them on my G35 in the white insert color. My dream was to throw 3 piece wheels on the G in order to get that deep dish front/deeper dish look on the car, but the NE-O is a pretty nice all around wheel, and it supports a lot of tire sizes since it is an 8" width (not a 7.5" like most 19's). Let's see... I want to lower it with a spring set that Infiniti approves for warranty first, then will consider wheels.

We are the OZ distributors in AZ so if you would like the Cronos let me know I'll work up some pricing for you.

Just so you know, changing wheel diameter does not change ride height at all when you proportionally change the tire diameter. In other words, a car with a 20 inch wheel with a 1 inch tire sidewall sits at the same height as a 17 inch wheel with a 2.5 inch tire sidewall. (20+1+1=17+2.5+2.5) It's when you do not keep the overall height of the wheel/tire combo consistant that you alter vehicle height. Changing overall height is also a bad idea because you affect the speedometer and odometer, as well as VSC and ABS.

My 2 cents...

G-Man, I am aware of these proportioned measurements. The only reason I mentioned that the car may raise in height, was not because of a larger wheel/tire overall diameter. I am referring to the physical equation behind area and volume. A smaller wheel/larger tire may cause a vehicle to sit lower than a larger wheel/smaller tire of the same overall diameter because of a higher rubber/metal ratio causing a higher flex percentage. A larger wheel/smaller tire combination is more rigid since there is allot more metal than rubber in the structure, thus also causing a stiffer flex area since the tire is thinner and more submissive to the size of the wheel. I hope I explained myself in a way you were able to understand. Basically it all comes down to this: The more rubber you have, the lower your car sits. The more wheel you have, the higher your car will sit.

Note: When I say more rubber, I am referring to sidewall width, not contact patch.

I understand your explaination perfectly, X. I guess I didn't perceive the minimal rubber compression to be considerable enough to require aftermarket springs to "...bring the G back to original or even lower height after the 20s having brought it up..."

After I proportionally traded out the 16's for 18's on my 540i, no one, including myself, could tell a difference in ride height.

My 3 cents...
