If you buy new tires or if you consider your tire new it may not be.
(please don't think I'm trying to be a know-it-all, and I hope I don't come off like a jerk, just want to help people out, as I have bought several sets of wheels for my Z and G, and have probably bought more than 10 sets of custom wheels for other cars)
I've seen a lot of...

I came across this ifo provided by Konig Wheels. It was a side bar on Vinny Ten Racing web site.
Rota has this model wheel with a polished lip and gun metal spokes. Fronts would be an 18x9.5 and the rears would be a 18x10. Has anybody any experience with this wheel or any thoughts on Rota wheels.
I have a 2010 G37 Sedan in Silver and I need your help choosing my new wheels. Which wheel would look better on my Silver sedan?

Thanks for your input.
I have narrowed it down to these Work Wheels:

Looking at going with 18's, staggered, 18x9 for front and 18x11 rear. Rubber will be 255/40 for front and 295/35 for rear. I want to have the wheels flush with the fender,...
Got a big question for you all. Most of you have tires besides the RE040. I am getting my new rims soon and i want a good performance tire, but one that is not going to break my bank too much. The ones listed are the tires I came up with. If i missed any please fill me in. Thanks
Mr. Brown from UPS was in the neighborhood and brought these......will mount this weekend and post installed pics......
Had these for a month or two, and we finally got a break in the weather, so I washed the car and snapped a couple pics earlier this week. Nothing fancy, though. Here you go :)
These are 19" Aristos from DPE. 3pc forged construction. Machined face with chrome lip.
OK, got new wheels -Enkei PF01's and was just going to transfer my current rubber which still has quite a bit of tread life left from the Rota's to the Enkei's. But, I am also considering new rubbber. This is a daily driver, canyons on weekends, no track. I am considering Continental Extreme...
...but I always liked the torque thrust type wheel, as I am a child of the 50s. I had them on my '64 327 Malibu, my 383 Dart, and even an Olds Vista Cruiser.
So here they are on an '08 Carbon Silver.
Center caps are coming complete with Z emblem.
Made it to OTEC's car show at Thunderbolt Raceway in Millville, NJ Saturday, and got the opportunity to take the car out on the track for 3 laps. What a rush!
Only problem is, the sticky compound on the track left by the race cars stuck to the treads of my tires like tar, and I've picked up all...
Dr. Bonz once again calling all tire gurus! :)

My Forged Performance build is almost complete and Shariff told me the car is making 550+rwhp but wheel spin on the dyno has been a big issue due to the crappy Toyo Proxes 4 tires that are currently on the car now. Now I have some concerns on the drivablilty of the car and am wanting to switch to...

I found this on the Mishimoto Blog. Check out the video:
