350z wheels on a 9-3?

I dont think they will fit but a buddy of mine sold his Z and said he would give the rims to me. (aftermarket 18's). Anyone know for sure? I wouldn't mind some larger wider wheels.

I think they are not even close, 114.3 x5 or something like that.


You can get away using some Volvo and Audi wheels that are 1-2mm off, but not THAT much off.

^ None of the Audi wheels will fit as they are mostly 5x112 and your car is 5x110.

You can run "wobble bolts" on the 5x112 to fit your 5x110.

Use the search option or just check the archives as this subject has been covered in great detail long before this epic thread.

But Audi wheels have a much smaller center bore.

Why not see if you can press a nissan hub into the front bearing of a 9-3? Inner bearing diameters can't be that diff. Also see if you can fill and re-drill the rears.

You would be the first.

Actually, my buddy with the NISMO 350Z might, as his
ride got PLOWED by a drunk bastard last weekend. It destroyed
the right rear wheel when it pushed the car into the curb (which
destoyed both wheels on the other side.
