OEM staggered sport rears are 19x9"? I didn't know that. Could have swore they were 9.5, with a 1" difference like the Sport 18" on the Sedan. With only a 1/2" difference, kind of makes you wonder why INFINITI even bothered.

Brad's certainly the man with the wheel and tire fitment answers. He's proven that time and time again.

Teaser pic of my wheels, all packed up and ready for the install Friday afternoon. The G37 is getting sanding and painting done to the front end as part of my purchase agreement from Carmax. I'll be stopping by to get it right before I get my wheels and tires done. I can't wait, I hate this Hyundai loaner....

Edit: Yes that's a seatbelt lol

Love the finish

Can't wait to see the final product fit and finished together. You must be pretty psyched at this point?

Yeah pretty darn psyched my friend. I'm thinking about some small stuff to do this weekend, though I might just relax and enjoy my hard work!

Nice look C, bet you're getting excited, hell, I'm a little excited and it's not even my G
Gunmetal looks nice and curious, who's the guy that he sold the orange caps to? Had no idea there would be a market for those. Cool that you have new center caps w/ the deal. In for pics!

That choice in powdercoat color is a fine, understated look look against your black car, and of course the wheels themselves are a proven design for the G. Depending on the viewing angle, the rims look better or worse. Sometimes the gunmetal is unmistakable and beautiful, but in some shots it looks like a dirty black rim. It is certainly a huge (Huge!) improvement over the 17" Journey wheels. You have to be happy about that, I'm sure.

One downside of the color is that the inner ring of corrosion on your rotors really pops. Ouch. I hate to be the one to bring it up, but you know it's there.

And Deelow, buy some tire gel, buddy.

Oh I intend to get it cleaned up tomorrow and maybe take a few more pictures. I hear you on the rotors, definitely gonna clean them when I install my Stoptech Brake pads I bought. Too bad my budget didn't include a set of Akebonos LOL! Oh well, gives me something else to look forward to.

Dangggggg that looks real good. Make me really want to toss mine on already haha.

Did you already install your swift springs? If you did, I definitely missed that part when I went through your build thread.

BTW GIVE HER A WASH
