    I'd suggest what I like, but what I like may not be what you like. My favorite wheels are Enkei NT03 +Ms
    I like how they look too, but i dont like the weight for the money. what do you mean +MS?

    If I wanted to leave the stock springs and not roll the fenders but get the tires almost flush with the fenders (not that hideous stock gap) what offset would everyone recommend? Considering 17" and 18" rims.

    I really love these rims - similar to what I had on my 350z

    I keep finding myself on rallysportdirect looking at those springs....I have Eibach Pro Kits on but I doubt that I'll drop that much lower.

    Hey guys, I have a couple questions about a certain wheel. I Honestly dont know much when it comes to wheel fitment and all that. Hold the bashing, I know XXR wheels are not the best, but for the money I think they are decent. I had the xxr 522 on my 08 and they never gave me any problems. But anyway, I am looking at the xxr 527's in 17x8.25. But there are two different offset's. Gives me the choice of +35 or +25. Not sure which one would be better. Any advice?

    I know that some rolling will have to happen too, because i plan on lowering it on coilovers. Probably a 1.5-2 inch drop. Also, what size tire would you recommend? I dont want a huge meaty tire, but not tiny ones either. Thanks in advance!

    one thing with the grid is if you ever decide to do a brake swap for brembo or big brakes you will need to run a spacer.
