    Nissan 370Z wheels on a VR-4

    I am pretty sure they are the same bolt pattern. Tirerack.com lists the VR-4 at 5-114 and the 370z as a 5-114. Essentially, the 370z wheels should bolt right up correct?

    Yeeap, check it out. IIRC it was from a 350, though, but I could be wrong. So long as they clear the calipers and you like the style I say dooo eeeet. Best bet would be to befriend some random w/a 370 and dump him or her when you test fit their wheels lol

    Yeah I found the guy who did it with the 370z's and they look SICK. And the DO fit. The only thing, I think, you have to do is change the hub bore from 66.1mm to 67.1mm. I think I finally have a suitable replacement for my stock wheels. I think I am going to get them powder coated flat black with some red on the triangle pieces.

    Just a warning - the guy who did this in my area with a black spyder (possibly the same guy you're thinking of) couldn't make it to our last meet because he had two cracked rims.

    Our car is close to a thousand pounds ontop of the 350Z?

    Really, that shouldn't matter, though, if the tires were properly inflated..

    Incorrect. The 350z weighs between 3,339-3,404 lbs in coupe form and 3,580-3,602 lbs in the convertible form depending on the packages you get

    Well, I'm pretty sure you can force the nissan wheels on the 3s hub and that could probably compromise the structural integrity of the wheel. Something like that may make the wheel more likely to crack. I have some 350z track wheels that I was going to put on my stealth, but the correct reamer tool is pretty large and not all that common and I didn't want to force them on. Being hubcentric wheels, I didn't want to risk half-assing the reaming job with a grinder or something like that either. Plus I have a 300zx I'm building and they'll probably look pretty nice on that.
