    '03 G35 Sedan - will these tires & wheels work ??

    My new Mustang is almost done & I have the OE take-off wheels & tires sitting in the garage. They are not bad looking, but put larger ones on the 'stang to handle the increased HP from the supercharger. Not much chance of selling them as there are lots of guys out there that have them for sale & few takers.

    They are 18 x 8, have the correct bolt pattern & are +40 offset. There are 253x50x18 tires mounted, which I know will introduce a little speedo error (3.5%). 253x45 would be perfect, but hate to just toss brand new tires. They will increase the overall tire height by just under an inch with the 50's. I will need to find the correct hub spacers (not a problem) and lugs that will fit the Infiniti thread pattern, but have the conical seat the Ford wheels require (I believe I can find these as well).

    Any thoughts on if this set-up will work? Will they rub or stick out too far or make handling weird etc.

    Thanks, I like them as well.

    Seemed too small for the 'stang considering the power I'm putting down, thought they'd be a sweet refresh for the G if they fit !

    Having a hard time sourcing hub rings tho, so far only place that stocks them is in AU .

    Nah, was having trouble sourcing the hub rings & lug nuts (Ford wheels are hub & lug centric).
    While I was fiddling around with all that, a guy from Naples bought them.
