My new wheels!

350Z Rays V1, going on my CA18DET T4 powered S14, should make 350-400whp if I ever get to the dyno and tune it for more than 10psi (the turbo is barely even awake)

NISMO S-tunes (have other suspension, but nothing that will affect tires/wheels)

I want tire recommendations. I don't want to pull or roll the fenders. Handling is the highest priority.

Side note: I'm not a fan of the dots on the wheel spokes, any input about having them welded up? I'm planning on stripping the wheels and re-coating them anyway, but I don't want to negatively effect the structural integrity of the wheel?

I absolutely love my BFGoodrich g-Force sports.
Grips well, and lasts a long while.

As for welding up the dots, a wheel repair shop (If you're lucky to live near one) would know what to do.
I'm sure a proper welding shop would weld and grind them flat for you though.

That's interesting that you mentioned that brand and model of tire as I was tire shopping on the Tire Rack this morning and was heavily considering them.

What other tires have you had on the car to compare them to?
