I really doubt it's b/c the wheels are too heavy.

Are you sure it's not just how it's sitting on that angled drive way?

What did the alignment shop say? Was it out of spec on the camber? If so, then get a camber kit for the rear.

It's hard to tell in that pic what is going on.

What are the specs on the wheels? width, offset

From the way it looks sitting in the driveway I would say that your rear camber is off. The first thing I would do is have the alignment checked. Can you take some closer pictures of the rear tires at 3 different angles and post them up, many one from the other side as well to compare.

Well, after looking at those pics. I would say that you should check your alignment, the rear camber might be a little off. It just seems to me like your rims are not that wide. They look like 20"x8.0". Can you post up the rim sizes and offsets? You might just need to get spacers to push the rims out to the edge of the fender.

New to blogging. Hope I can get some help.
New rear suspension installed on 2005 350Z due to running over curb and bending original one. After install steering was tighter than usual. The car 2 days later on highway car rear end fishtails towards outside concrete barrier after making lane change from middle to outside. ABS and VDC and steering not responding to allow driver correction and car spun in circular direction across 2 other lanes of traffic.
No other cars or persons injured except driver. 8 years been driving this car and nothing like this ever happened before even on ice or wet roads. Total loss of control of any correction system. What could have failed in the new rear suspension to cause this situation? Not speeding (traffic all traveling same speed about 65 mph), clear and sufficient space in outside lane. lane change was gradual and not jerked over. was in outside lane about 60-90 seconds before rear end started moving.
Anyone had this experience or could provide any clues as to what to look for in car (which was deemed totaled by insurance) to determine if rear suspension did fail?

Maybe your ABS was damaged initially and the ECU kicked in?

Who did the installation?
