Finally made the decision on rims--

18x8 TSW Vortex.
18x8 5x120 40mm offset 214$ a rim.

i wanted some OEM 18's and no luck. so, i found these, they remind me of stock, reviews are they're easy to clean. and maybe get this widened to run a 305 in the back of course i know fenders will need to be rolled and mini tub. im currently deployed so im hoping to make it possible by christmas.

does anyone know how much i would have to get them widened to run a 305? im thinking to 18x10?

went with 18"s because i would liek to do a spring lowering kit, but still doing research on that subject so if you have any advice on a good spring setup, fell free to let me know

i've found mixed reviews about the eibach, and tein's. friends here have the tein's on their 350z's, g35's and they swear up and down by them . only probably is what size on the front?

thanks.
matthew.

Those look really nice! You might want to get some paint for your rotor hat because it probably will be rusty and might show more with those wheels.

im not sure what a "rotor hat" is but im assuming its the black/gold part on the rotors that some companies have. i plan on doing a brake upgrade (rotors and pads) when i get back too. so much to do on such a little budget.
