$2400 out the door with rubber. I was just searching my computer for my offsets but I guess I lost all my data when I updated my OS a few weeks ago. If I remember correctly, ADR only offered one offset and that was 0.35 but I'm not sure. The only other info I have is in my sig.

Alright Mikey, because I know how hard it is to pick out wheels, I went digging through stacks of papers. I got the wheels and tires at Wheel Expressions in West Palm Beach Florida. They weren't $2400 but were $2600 out the door = $1300 for the wheels and $1080 for the rubber. That includes:
2 - 19 x 9.5 x et35
2 - 19 x 10.5 x et35
2 - Dunlop SP 9000 245-40-19
2 - Dunlop SP 9000 285-35-19
Balancing
Locking lug nuts

Heh, Im new so you're probably going to hate me for having a differing opinion. I would definetly go with an 18" wheel setup. I make this recommendation as when you get a 19" wheel you are going two sizes up versus the stock wheel diameter. Most professionals agree anymore than 1 size up in wheel diameter can adversely affect performance; remember you own a 350z, a sports car. Concentrate more on performance than looks, maybe you could get a slightly higher tire profile to fill the gap. Also, I think Sport Compact Car had an article concerning "the perfect handling Z" where they acheived neutral steer via a non staggered fitment (same size wheels all around). Just do your research.

this is what 20" STERN wheels look like...... the ride is rough but looks very nice..... 19" rims are the ideal size for the Z because they dont compromise the ride.......




ADR WHEELS 350Z !!!
(previously with 19" ADR MSPORT Hyperblack wheels)

I was at Golden Apple Brands Hayward, CA warehouse Friday, prototyping a set of NEX coilovers for the 350z for them....got a good price & installation/adj. free!

Anyway, they are the manufacturer/importer of ADR & Stern wheels. The Stern SP1's look real nice (like M-Sports...), They make a set in 'hypersilver' with polished lips...would look nice on my silver Z33!

Here's the link to Stern, supposedly an upmarket brand from ADR:

& a pic of your MSports on a pimpy Z!

:cheers:

The Volk SF Winning with Toyos were only $3000 shipped. $400 is not much of a difference.

I would also like some help on this subject, because I have tried to buy ADR rims and I cannot get anyone to sell them to me in Pensacola because they are claiming ADR is a suspect company. I really, really like the ADR Sterlings and M-Sports but I dont know what to do... Basically I am looking for some assurance from other ADR owners that these are quality rims.

I hear a lot of people trashing these rims as too heavy or inferior finish, but I for one have had no trouble. I don't track my Z so weight wasn't a top issue for me. I have been very pleased with my ADRs. They do caution against using anything but car wash and wax and I have never gone against that advise. Maybe that's the difference?
