Ordered some Titanium Gun Metal TE37 today.
Along with some BFG KDW2.


I went with 19" 9.5" front and 10.5" rear.

From the pics I can find now, the 10.5" rear doesn't look too much.

Any body have any pics they can share??




I'm not going to drop it much.. up to an inch MAX! something like the Hotchkis setup is what i'm going to start with I believe. Unless I decide to put some coilovers on it.. I went with a great set of coilovers for my Celica GtFour, and it was the best modification IMHO.. so maybe i'll go coilover.



Any how.. comments welcome.

Dayum! :OMG: I'm :drool: over how good those wheels look. Where did you order them from? Get a good deal? I give you a :thumbsup: on the tire selection. That's what I'm going to get next.

yeah got a nice deal, don't mind sharing info..

about $2550 + shipping from Aspec http://www.aspecproducts.com/

tires were about $900 after discount. .. 245/35 and 275/35







so 10.5" is okay in the rear right?? not bad?? I'm sooo confused now and want to make sure i'm good before they ship tomorrow. :(




Thanks for the kind words smooth & dave! :)

VERY nice! That exact setup is one of my options. Just can't decide.

Post pics when you get them installed.

Holy Crap!

First the exhaust and now this! :OMG: :OMG: :OMG:

Those are beautiful man, and you shouldn't have any problem at all fitting the 10.5" wheels on there.

I highly recommend the Hotchkis spring + sways setup. I don't have my sways on yet, but from what I've heard, they make the car feel like it's riding on rails.

Eibach springs may give you a rubbing problem with the 1.2" drop in the rear though. I know I rubbed a little when I had my 295/35/19's on mine, so I had to switch.

Good luck with the fitment and POST SOME PICTURES! :cheers:

You won't have a problem with the 10.5 rear. As for dropping her, I know Espirit makes a kit that lowers it around 1/2" or so. Might want to check them out.

thanks guys!

I'll def. post pics as soon as there in my possesion. Thinking Thursday.


I'll most likely just going to go with the TVS setup. However i'll look into Espirit.

I was thinking about going with Zeal but that's a drastic step at the moment. I may not really need height adj. and dampening adj. for the Z right now. Fitting coilovers to my ST185, was the best modification I did on it. Nothing like riding on top quality coils. :)

BUT>.. maybe I'll just go TVS for now.. Would def. be cheaper as I have a few other things to complete.. I shouldn't ignore the suspension, but the TVS is probably a good first step.

It's half the beast that's sitting beside the Z, dressed in white. :p

hehe.. it's a Celica S165 (Alltrac / AWD / Turbo) I've worked on them for many years.. It's wear I came from so to speak. .haha. :)

The white one is a ST185 model (next gen).

Looks VERY nice! Boy those 19" TE37 with 10.5 look MEATY in the rear (jaki on my350z's look just like that). What size tire are you using back there?
