When you have more grip (a bigger or stickier contact patch), chances are you are going to follow discrepencies in the road a lot more easily. It's on tirerack.com.HELP PLEASE, from you expert out there.
I've fitted a set of 19" wheels to the car and now feel that the car handles little s..t, can't say really, but I'm sure you know what I mean. Name of the wheels are Antera 343. Size of wheels are, fronts 8.5x19 offset 25 tyre size 245/35 and the rears are 9.5x19 offset 30 tyre size 275/35. My original wheels were Rays 18" wiith 225 fronts and 245 rears. I have had the car lowered by 25-30mm using TEIN super sport coil overs and the dampers are set to postion 8 all round. Standard 350Z I believe would be in postion 4. There are 16 position with the TEIN so I 'm set on half way and my tyre pressures are around 32psi.
My problem I have is tram lining, I guess thats the technical name for it. I don't think the car is directional enough when approaching bends fasts. This situation does not make for comfortable driving the faster I go. I've spent good money on this wheels, surely it can't be the wheels could it?
I understand my chamber is a bit negative but thats to be expected if the car is lower 25-30mm. Or is this my problem the car has too much negative chamber.
Lots of you guys are fitting 19/20" has anyone had this problem and was able to correct it.. I have heard that the 350Z does not handle well with 19" wide wheels...?

Man the rim dealer told me thatThose offsets are too high. You want something like
Front 19x8 +20 to +26 offset
Rear 19x9.5 +20 to +26 offset
Tires: 245/35/19 F - 275/35/19 R
No. Not possible.but its possible to have deep dish WITH positive offset right?
If they don't have a lip, then that means you have a positive offset. Got a pic of the wheels? Or a link?Man the rim dealer told me that
Front 18X8 +38 Offset
Rear 18X10 + 38 Offset
would fit :helpsmilie:
They look like factory rims no fat lip nothin they should fit?
cheers for the reply regarding the 10.5" fitment. Think i'm going to stick to 9.5" for the rear looking at the pictures/info. Appears to be a safer bet.
