18x10 +22 or 20x10 +42 with spacers – what would be your personal preference?

5 posts in this topic

I'd appreciate your assistance with my dilema. Here is a case study: For your 370Z you are considering Lenso Project D D1R, because you’re trying to achieve this look. Front sizes are fine but the only sizes available for the rear are 18x10 +22 (you'd add 5-10mm spacers) and 20x10 +42 (with 25-30mm spacers). In 18’s you’d go for 255/45 front and 275/40 for the rear because they can still be found reasonably priced. In 20’s, any size is fine.

What would you choose and what’s your reasoning behind it?

Personally not a fan of spacers but I know a lot of people run them without issues, etc.

For the Z, depending on the type of wheel you get, it may look small. The Lensos look like they may look a bit smaller due to the design (doesn't go all the way to the lip).

The Work Kiwamis I had look bigger than the TE37's I have due to the design, Kiwamis go to the edge, TE37 has a bit of a lip like the Lenso. For this, maybe 20's are the way to go, but hard to say..

Interesting observation and a testament to how a wheel design can create an optical illusion. 

I like bronze Kiwami's on a black car but the reason I'm looking at 20" Lenso's is that they are considerably cheaper (19" Kiwami's are $1998 at JDM Concept). 

I'm also toying with the idea of experimenting with a full square setup:  20x10 +42 all around. With 30mm rear spacers, working out as +12 offset at the back, all 4 wheels would extend by 18mm from standard setup. Advantage is that, with 275 tyres all around, tyre rotation would also be possible.

Decisions, decisions...

30mm spacer sounds like a bit much, 20 would be the highest I would go if I were to run them (but I'm biased, not a fan of spacers in general). Tyre size sounds good though, square setup would probably make the car even more fun.

I'm selling a set of Kiwami's in silver if interested, staggered set, tyres aren't great. Let me know if you want further details.

Wasn't quite looking for used wheels, to be honest.

However, PM me some details please, I might consider.

You never know...

      Hi all, Thanks for the add. I've just purchased my 1st 370Z and absolutely love it. Quality car, quality performance. Looking forward to seeing everyone's Z cars.

      Start off small, go catback exhaust like invidia which is quite popular around here. I personally have a motordyne catback, and for the system itself, it is usually plenty deep and loud! If you do find yourself at one of the next car meets, swing by and have a listen to what exhaust tone you like. Moving forward with headers and test pipes like the US Z community do, they do tend to go over the db limit here in AUS, as well as become deafening whilst driving. It’s not like people dont so it, but it’s not tolerable for most. I would also encourage you to fit the catback yourself, it really isnt that hard and you save some cash installing it yourself! It’s only a couple of 12-14mm nuts and bolts and youre golden. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      HI damo-heato, I know it's been a very, very long time since this post was made but i came across it and was wondering if you still had all the parts for sale and if so how much would you want for them (I know the answer is probably no since it's been so long but might as well try). Cheers!

      Has anyone actually verified that a simple disk copy will work? Has anyone actually done it and made it work properly?
