How to get a more aftermarket look

Postby Rjjg37x » Sat Feb 24, 2018 10:20 pm

Hey,
I'm new to the forum. I just put new 18s on my G37x sedan. Im look in on advice on how to give it a more aftermarket look. I didn't go with 20s as I drive a lot and didn't want to affect my ride or go through tires. I'm new to the whole car upgrading scene. So any feed back would be helpful.

Wheels: 18x8.5 +38
Tires: 225/50/18 this is what the tire guy said what comes OEM for 18s.
Thanks

mac , yeah you could "fill" the wheel well a little more (diameter-wise) , I think NOW your wheels look "sunk-in" and a REAL punch woul be be wider rims + Super wide on the tires (watch clearance of course) , "Square Shoulder " tires always in my opinion look best yet the Big "Dognuts" will maybe clear better Sz. for Sz. :cool: G 2/25/2018

Going with 20's is all about preference but the larger the wheel the weirder it will look without a drop, IMO. The people who sold you the 225's for the new wheels "just because they are a factory size" don't seem to smart. I would have at least gone 245-40 all around at a minimum.
