I need to buy some new rims for the Z. It is superblack. I am probably going to get something with an 18" diameter (although feel free to suggest other sizes, but please say why bigger or smaller). I don't have a set amount on how much to spend, but I would like to keep the max around 1,500 for a complete set of wheels only. And of course I want the back wheels to be wider than the front.

PS: If you can send pictures/links of the wheels (esp. already on the car) I would appreciate it?!?!

THANKS!!!

Well for $1500 you might not get a complete set, that is if you mean tires included. can u tell us what you like so i can see where you are coming from.

the nismo 5-spoke forged alloys weigh only 16 lbs. each. a set of 4 is $1,800. 18" x 8.5" front; and 18" x 9.5" rear.

I am planning on spending somewhere around $1,500 on the wheels or "rims" themselves (without tires). I like many different types: 5 spokes, 7 spokes or more, but also wheels like the BBS RS-GT, ADR M-sport, etc... As far as color I have thought about gun-metal w/ polished lip or something with high polish or chrome even??? I generally like the riveted look.

That would be great Jinx. I really like those rims. If you talk to him soon let him know to post them.

They are pretty cool but I dont' know if thats what I'm looking for I would rather have something with like a high polish or something...and I would also prefer 18's cause I heard that the bigger the wheel the slower the acceleration and the rougher the ride.

where did those raised center caps come from on the pic you posted? i thought the 18's could not take the center caps

I dunno about the center caps. I have the Nismo wheels (without center caps), but the pic I posted was somone else's car I saw at a Nissan show at Calif. Speedway before I bought my nismos. Could the wheels in the pic be 17"? They look just like mine except the center caps.
