You know what sucks? Paying a ton of money for something… and not seeing it for months. That’s how it’s been lately when I order wheels.
The past 4 times I’ve bought wheels, they were made to order – which is cool, because they were made specifically for me and not just sitting on a shelf somewhere. But the wait is HORRIBLE! From the time you order wheels to the time they arrive at your door is usually about 3-4 months.
Here’s what I’m currently waiting on…
For the G35 sedan: Work Varianza F2S 20×9.5, 20×10.5
My first set of dubs! The sad thing about the G35 sedan is that it’s not setup to have really deep dish wheels like the coupe. Anytime you see a G35 sedan with wheels, chances are it has pretty sad lip. The good thing about these Works is that they’ll have close to 3″ in the front and 4″ in the rear. I don’t know how! It’s just the way it is. I can’t wait to see how they look. I’m kinda nervous because the G35 is an interesting car – it’s a sporty luxury sedan – what kind of wheels do you get for that? I just went for the luxury wheels because this is the first time I can!
For the skid machine: SSR Professor SP1 17×9.5, 18×11
Man, I spent WAY TOO much time trying to figure out what wheels to get. And even when I decided, it took me too long to figure out what size and offset. For once, I’m thinking about FUNCTION when ordering wheels. I’m not going with the widest lowest offset wheels possible that will fit under my fenders. Instead I’m thinking about available tire sizes and cost, weight, and my ultimate goal – getting my car to be my desired ride height and the wheels to fit perfectly WITH my desired alignment settings. You can get almost any crazy wide low offset wheel to fit on your car, but you have to make sacrifices to certain things like ride hight and alignment. I want my car to look good AND fun to drive! I have a little suprise coming with these wheels :)
