Ok, I am a Nub but hey... I do have a 350Z


Question....


1. I went to Courtesy nissan in richardson, Tx and they told me that I could not replace my Wheels with nismo wheels due to the Tire Air Pressure Monitor. I dont agree and did a search on the sensor and did not find any topics in this site that match. Is there any truth to this?


2. I purchased my Z used about a year and half ago and was wondering if anyone knew how to tell all the options that were purchased with the vehicle based on the Vin number. I read the prior post regaring VIN's but it does not show what Model is what number or letter. My Vin Follows.. I think its a Performance...


JN1AZ34D63T10XXX <--- Not Comfortable putting the serial.


3. Based on the Model (performance) what offset and wheel Size should I got with if it is possible to replace them.

I actually have my car in the shop now installing a Nismo Spoiler and want the White Nismo Wheels on my glacier peak White Z...... Please help me get there :)

I was thinking I want these Wheels as well. Will going to the 19 inch wheel really be that bad? I know the risk but what about the ride?



Antera Type 343 - 19" x 9.5" - 35 - 5/114.3 <---- Rear


Antera Type 343 - 19" x 8.5" - 35 - 5/114.3 <--- Front




Here is my second wheel size choice...


Antera Type 343 - 18" x 8" - 35 - 5/114.3

Antera Type 343 - 18" x 10" - 35 - 5/114.3

I dont see any reason why you wouldnt be able to use the TPS sensors with the Nismo wheels. If you end up with the Nismo wheels just get 245/40-18 front and 275/40-18 rear tires.

Your TPS sensors will definitely function inside the Nismo wheels. You just have to remove them from your OEM wheels and then re-install them in the appropriate Nismo wheels. [as shown]
:cheers:

Thanks Bro! This is helpful... Did you ever put those Enki's on? And if so... How much did they cost total? I went to Jotech today and Tony Wooooo me with some Volk GT-C Gunmetal Finish. Face1 in front and Face 2 in rear. They were hot.. Let me know what you think? Worth 4K with Nitto Wheels and tires?

19x9.5 GT-C w/ 245/35Zr19 Nitto NT555
19x10.5 GT-C w/ 275/30Zr19 Nitto NT555

Kinda seems to be a bit 2 low of a profile but the Z I seen them on looked great and there was some meat left on the rim :p

There is no translation from the VIN to the trim, so you can't use the VIN to determine that. Assuming the wheels in the picture were on the car at the time of purchase and you have cloth interior, you do have a Performance. The TPMS was not available on any trims lower than Performance, so that's the lowest trim it could be

+1, even the NISMO instruction sheet that came with my rims has a detailed explaination on how to do this exactly.
