Nissan 350Z (Z33) Wheel Guide

If you're looking for aftermarket alloy wheels for a 350Z, you really are spoilt for choice depending on the overall style you want to achieve.

While you're free to choose pretty much any diameter and width that you want, there are a number of tried and tested wheel sizes that will give your car the road presence it deserves without affecting the chuckable handling characteristics that they became famous for.

Driftworks have a huge array of wheels available in-store including designs from the likes of WORK Wheels, JR, Rota and 7Twenty. You can check them all out here.

Recommended Wheel Sizes

Nissan 350Z Bolt On Wheel Fitment

Bolt-on Fitment

These wheel sizes are for those who simply wish to fit a set of aftermarket wheels to their 350Z without modifying any of their bodywork. 17x8 wheels will bolt straight on (so long as you're not using massively oversized tyres), with ET30 being the optimum offset to achieve a "flush" fitment.

Recommended Bolt-on Fitment Sizes:
19x9 ET30

Nissan 350Z Modified Wheel Fitment

Modified Fitment (Arches Will Need Rolling)

These wheel sizes are for those who are willing to roll and/or pull their wheel arches, or fit bolt-on extended arches. Combined with a stretched tyre and a small dose of negative camber you'll have a seriously strong looking 350Z with minimal effort.

Recommended Modified Fitment Sizes:

Nissan 350Z Modified Wheel Fitment

Extreme Fitment (Arch & Suspension Changes)

With wide arch kits, tire stretch and negative camber anything can fit if you put your mind to it. 9"-11"+ wheel widths are all possible should you be willing to modify the bodywork on your Nissan 350Z with extended arches, over fenders or a large amount of metalwork.

Bolt pattern of your Nissan 350Z

Nissan 350Z stud pattern - Pitch Circle Diameter (PCD) defines the diameter of the imaginary circle drawn by the centers of the wheel lugs and describes the number of the lug holes incorporated by the rim. How to change bolt pattern? Use Adapters

Stock Wheel Offset

The space between the hub mounting surface and the wheel center of 350Z wheels. If you need a different offset use Wheel Spacers

Center Bore (Hub Bore)

The hole in the middle of a rim that exactly matches the hub diameter. It is located at the back of the wheel and as the car's hub goes into this hole it ensures the wheel gets centered correctly. Stock 350Z wheels have a perfect centerbore fit with the hub. How to fit rims with larger centre bore? Use Hub Centric Rings

Custom Offset Range

Is calculated from the data of modified Nissan 350Z that switched to custom wheel size preserving the proper driving capabilities of the vehicle.

Thread Size

Lug Nuts size. Measures the thread diameter, the thread pitch, and the thread length. In the metric system, the diameter of the thread, the first digit, is described in millimeters.

Rim Sizes Range

Gives an idea about the maximum and minimum allowable limits of the wheels diameter and width matching the specific vehicle. Try Hubcaps to change the look of your wheels

Custom Rim Sizes Range

Shows the lower and upper limits of the rims the vehicle can incorporate in contrast to the manufacturer's specs. Sometimes it happens that you are not happy with your stock wheels and would like to have something else. Choosing the right aftermarket wheels is not an easy thing to do, but we will try to help you get things straight. We have gathered the modified Nissan 350Z cars, in which the owners tried to find the balance between wheel size, rims width, backspacing, wheels offset and suspension height. It has to appeal to the car owner too. Have a look around and pick your option out of projects with custom wheels.

Advantages and disadvantages of the different kinds of wheels. It will help you to select your Nissan 350Z wheel size:

Nissan 350Z Bigger Wheels


  • – Have great handling capability.
  • – The fact that it has less balancing on the rubber casing enhances your car’s stability.
  • – The easiest way to get better ground clearance to your 350Z
  • – Comes with added braking capability.
  • – Can comfortably handle greater speed as well as weight limits.


  • – Very expensive
  • – The fact that they are big means that comfort is not maximized
  • – Tend to wear out very quickly

Nissan 350Z Smaller Wheels


  • – The comfort aspect is maximized
  • – Relatively cheap


  • – Poor handling capability
  • – Has a relatively ugly look
  • – Weak performance due to their small sizes

We strongly recommend always use the wheel dimensions and bolt pattern that were stipulated by the manufacturer.

Remember that using aftermarket wheels will affect the fuel consumption rate of your Nissan 350Z, and the speedometer measurements may not reflect the actual speed of your driving. Such a fate can even see you getting a fine in different regions.

The car that started the trombone jokes, the co-creator of the drift-boi stereotype, and THE car that everyone wanted/wants in high school because, you know, it's cool, right? Yes, we're talking about the Nissan 350z. 

The 350Z is notoriously known as the affordable entry-level enthusiast car/drift car. Its sleek, big-bodied 2-seater design continues to capture the attention and hearts of enthusiasts even after 18 years. Though it's been criticized by many for the disruption of smooth body lines by the door handles, and while being underpowered, the 350z's modern design still looks badass especially with some aftermarket wheels and sticky tires slapped on. With some lowering springs or coilovers, you've got yourself the perfect track car, drift car, show car, and daily cruiser all in one.  

So, if this big-bodied coupe has been hiding in your garage waiting to get some new wheels, tires, and suspension, we've compiled a few different 350z fitment options to help get you started.

2006 NISSAN 350Z


The first step you need to address for fitment is what type of suspension upgrade you want. The big thing here is deciding whether you want static vs. bagged. Unless you're willing to spend a few grand on a full air suspension setup, coilovers or lowering springs are going to be your two options.

The other thing you'll want to think about right away is whether you want a staggered or square setup. Honestly, most 350Zs are going to be running a staggered setup due to the nature of the car's design, however, there are still plenty who run a square setup. You can check out the different fitment options/looks in the gallery to help visualize what you're going for!




Recommended Fitment Specs For The Nissan 350Z

Bolt Pattern: 5x114.3mm (5x4.5")

Front Sizes:

Diameter: 17" to 20"

Width: 7.5" to 11"

Width: 8" to 11"

Offset: 8mm to 45mm





Lowering Springs Fitment For Nissan 350Z

Lowering springs are a super budget-friendly suspension upgrade and are generally pretty easy to install yourself with only a few tools and some basic automotive knowledge. Depending on the suspension brand you go with for your 350Z, you're going to get a pretty decent drop in ride height. We'll cover the best lowering springs options here.

Tein's Spring kit, for example, provides a 1 1/2" drop in ride height. Going from stock ride height to 1 1/2" lower is going to make a big difference in the way your 350Z looks and rides. It'll also affect what wheels and tires you can fit.




Nissan 350Z\


A lowered 350Z not only is a sportier ride, but it also provides a lower center of gravity which improves handling capabilities and provides more precise cornering compared to bouncy stock suspension.

If you decide that lowering springs are the route you want to go with, here's some common fitment setups 







Wheels & Tires That Fit a 350Z Lowered on Lowering Springs

For lowering springs, you're going to see a pretty big drop in ride height and wheel/tire sizes are going to depend on whether you run a staggered or square setup. 






If you want to run your 350z with staggered wheels on lowering springs, we commonly see 18x9.5 +22mm in the front and 18x10.5 +22mm in the rear with 245/40 and 275/40 tire sizes, respectively.

If you want to run a bigger wheel, you could opt for a 19x9.5 +15mm in the front and a 19x11 +11mm in the rear. This is a wider setup that's going to give you more room for a bigger tire and thus more grip on the track. 




Nissan 350z


If you want to run a square setup, you'll want to go with a lower offset wheel and/or a less wide wheel. For an 18-inch wheel, you could run an 18x11 +8mm with a 275/35 tire. This will give you a poke fitment and will require either the fenders to be pulled or rolled slightly. 


Nissan 350z



The Best Lowering Springs For a Nissan 350Z

I mentioned before that Tein's Spring kit provides about a 1 /1/2" drop. Tein is probably the most common brand of lowering springs that we see the 350Z community using. A lot of enthusiasts, including myself, prefer Tein because of their JDM roots and involvement in motorsports. 




All of Tein's suspension kits are made in Yokohama, Japan which is the icing on the cake for a lot of enthusiasts. Their springs, like most lowering springs, are designed to be used with your OEM shocks / OEM replacement shocks all you really need to do is pop on the new lowering springs.




The other popular lowering spring options are...

All of these kits are going to give you a lower center of gravity with anywhere from 1" to even 2.3". Eibach's Pro-Kit provides between a 1.7" to a 2.3" difference in ride height!



Nissan 350z


Coilovers Fitment For Nissan 350Z

Now, arguably one of the best suspension options to go with, coilovers. This is probably the most common suspension upgrade for the 350Z community since so many people track these cars. Coilovers are a must on the track from a driving and handling perspective. 




Nissan 350z coilovers


With coilovers, you're going to get adjustable ride height and damping adjustments which help manipulate how the car will handle. If you plan on running your 350Z on the autocross track, take it drifting, or even to a road course, choosing coilovers is going to give you the best results. 





Wheels & Tires That Fit a 350Z Lowered on Coilovers

So, there's a lot of options to choose from when it comes to finding the perfect wheel and tire setup on coilovers.

Here are a few different options for your 350Z lowering on coilovers.




The most common wheel sizes for a square setup are usually around the following sizes....

-  18x9.5 with a range between +15mm or +22mm offsets

- 18x10 with a range between +10mm to +38mm offsets

- 18x10.5 with a range between +18mm to +25mm offsets




The most common wheel sizes for a staggered setup are around this range:

- Flush Fitment: 18x9.5 +25mm with a 18x10.5 +18mm in the rear (hella flush) | 245/40 tire size in the front and 275/40 in the rear (hella flush)

- Poke Fitment: 19x9.5 +15mm in the front with a 19x11 +15mm in the rear | 245/35 tire size in the front and 275/35 in the rear



Flush fitments are ideal for the track and provide one of the best looks. A few flush fitment examples for the 350z are running...

- 18x9.5 +15mm offset with a 265/35 tire size

- 18x9 +25mm offset with a 235/40 tire size

- 18x9.5 +10 with a 225/40 tire size






Poke fitments are going to require a higher offset and/or a wider wheel width is essentially pushed further outside your fender. A few examples of a poke fitment on coilovers are...

- 18x11 +8mm with a 265/35 tire

- 19x10.5 +22mm with 245/35 tire size






Best Coilovers For a Nissan 350Z

One of the fan favorites for the 350Z community is BC Racing. If you're more of an entry-level enthusiast or just want coilovers for the adjustability, their BR series is a great option. The BR Series offers 30-clicks of adjustment and is fully rebuildable after you beat on them for a while at the track. This is the best option if you want to make a real difference in the way your car handles. 






There are quite a few other popular options out there for coilovers. Here's a list of some to check out. 






Air Suspension Fitment For Nissan 350Z

For all the show-style 350z out there, air suspension is probably on your radar. This is definitely more of an investment compared to lowering springs and coilovers so beware of that.




2006 NISSAN 350Z


Wheels & Tires That Fit a 350Z Lowered on Air Suspension

If you want to run air suspension, the safest route (and most common) is a tucked fitment. When you're at a show and want to slam your car on the ground, your wheels are going to need to fit behind the fenders so you don't crush the lip of your wheel and rub. 

Also, you can definitely still run a staggered setup on air suspension. We'll run through a few options for both square and staggered setups.




2006 NISSAN 350Z


For staggered setups, your wheel and tire size are going to be bigger in the rear. We see a lot of 350z on air running a bigger wheel size of 19x10.5 in the front and 19x11.5 in the rear OR a 19x11 +14mm offset with a 19x12 0mm offset in the rear. As far as tire sizes go with a 19x10.5 for example, you could run a 235/358 or a 245/35 without any modification to your fenders. If you're running a widebody or something similar, you could go bigger with a 265/30 even. 






If you want to run an 18-inch wheel for a little more tire, a common wheel setup is 18x11 +8mm in the front and 18x12 +7mm in the rear. Beware that a lot of wider setups and/or higher offset wheels are going to require either rolling your fenders (yes, even though the 350z already has generous wheel fenders) and/or even some over fenders/widebody kit. 




2006 NISSAN 350Z


For those who want to run a square setup on air suspension with a bigger wheel, a few common sizes we see are a 19x9.5 +15mm running a 245/35 tire OR 19x9.5 +22mm with a 275/30 tire. Remember, these fitment specs are going to give you a tucked fitment to accommodate your air suspension system. 





The best looking Nissan 350z wheels is quite a long list especially when you consider all the different types of builds out there, but here are a couple specific wheels that always seem to be popular in the 350z community. 




Nissan 350z RPF1 Fitment

The Enkei RPF1 is a notorious wheel for almost every platform out there because of its versatile design, but the 350z community especially loves this wheel because of its involvement in the motorsports world. 

The RPF1 is light, strong, and is available in a ton of sizes to accommodate almost every platform and type of build out there, hence why the 350z community loves this wheel. It's perfect for both drifting, autocross, road courses, and even show cars. 






The most common size of the RPF1 that you're going to see on the 350z is a 18x9.5 +15mm in the front with a 18x10.5 +15mm in the back (if you want a staggered setup). This gives you room to fit a 235 to a 265 tire size. 






Nissan 350z Kansei Tandem Fitment

The Tandem from Kansei is their flagship wheel that's actually inspired by Godzilla. Bet you couldn't have guessed that. 

The Tandem looks really good on the 350z due to the different concavity levels available and the smooth, rounded spokes. Its design aesthetic perfectly matches that of the 350z body. 






Common fitment specs for the Tandem on a lowered 350z are 18x9.5 +22mm in the front and a 18x10.5 +12mm in the back. If you are running a square setup, you could go a little wider with a 18x10.5 +12mm offset, but you probably will need to roll/pull your fenders and may even experience some rubbing at a full turn. 

Now, you could either take a hammer to the inside of your wheel well to prevent that, or SEND IT. 






Closing Thoughts

We hope this helped narrow down your options and gave you a better idea of what size wheels and tires you need based on your application, suspension, and fitment style.

The Best 350z Rims & Wheels

After buying a Nissan 350z, an upgrade to aftermarket wheels are on almost every owners list.

It’s not that anything is wrong with the stock 350z rims, it’s just that your needs are different from the next guy. Aftermarket wheels allow you to:

  1. shave off some weight, which is great for improving your Z’s performance through better acceleration,
  2. fine tune your wheel/tire combo, and do things like widen the track of your 350z to improve handling,
  3. give your car a unique look, make it look awesome and turn some heads.

This guide will tell you everything you need to know about 350z wheels, including correct sizes and offsets. Then we’ll run though what we think are the best 350z rims on the market.

We’ll finish up with some recommendations of our favorite cheap 350z wheels, the best lightweight wheels and the ones we think look the best on a Z33.

Things to Consider Before Buying 350z Rims

First, the basics: every model of the Nissan 350z uses a 5×114.3 bolt pattern. If you don’t get wheels in this bolt pattern, they will not be able to be installed on your car.

Before buying any aftermarket wheels for your 350z, you need to decide on a few things:

  1. Are you using these wheels for daily driving?
  2. Are you using these wheels to race?
  3. What’s your budget?

These factors will help you narrow down your options.

Nissan 350z in competition use

If you’re buying wheels just for daily driving, weight probably isn’t much of an issue for you. But if you’re using your wheels for racing, you’ll want lightweight wheels, preferably forged, as they’re stronger and sturdier.

Forged wheels are much more expensive than cast wheels, though. So if you’re on a strict budget, that probably eliminates about half of your options right out of the gate.

After you make your decisions on those three questions, you need to decide what wheel size and offset will go best with your 350z.

Wheel Diameter and Width

While some 350z models come with 17″ wheels from the factory, almost all owners end up upgrading to 18’s, if not larger.

Generally if you’re heading to the track, that’s as large as you will use as getting maximum traction and keeping tire costs down is more important than looks.

On the street though, 19’s are much more common. Most people run widths between 8.5″-9.5″, with around 9″ being the sweet spot.

Square vs staggered setups are a hotly debated topic. While some 350z owners like being able to rotate their wheels front to back, some will use smaller wheels in the front (19×8.5”, for instance), and larger wheels in the back (19×10.5”).

These fill the guards a bit better and can help with handling.

You can go larger than these sizes a 20×11″ for example, but they will not fit without custom work like fender rolling. Your 350z may need wheel spacers, and you’ll almost definitely need coilovers with nice thin linear springs to fit a wheel in that sort of width.

Wheel Offset

The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel. The 350z has wide “hips” and a low offset. Many aftermarket wheels have a lower offset than stock Z33 wheels would, but we’ve made sure to include only wheels that will fit (and look good) on your Z car.

If you’re racing your 350z, you’ll probably want a more aggressive wheel offset, somewhere in the +10mm to +25mm range. With these offsets, your wheels might require a slight fender roll to fit.

Nissan 350z with 18x9.5 +12mm Enkei RPF1 rims

High offsets of +40mm or more are at risk of not clearing the OEM Brembo brakes or other big brake kits, depending on the calipers themselves, wheel lip size, and spoke design. Stick with a lower offset and you should be fine.

Offsets in the +25mm to +35mm range are generally considered safe, where a fender roll won’t be necessary. These offsets are more common for daily driving wheels, but people also use them for racing when their car doubles as a street car too.

Best Wheel Sizes

If that got too confusing, no problems. Stick with a set up close to the following and you will be safe:

Wheel Size for Track Use: 18×9.5 +15mm
Wheel Size for Street Use: 19×9 +30mm

Top 10 350z Rims

These wheels are all lightweight (some more than others), with varying sizing options (typically in the 18-19” range in diameter and 8.5-10.5” range in width) and offsets.

We’ve cherry picked wheels that are good for racing and daily driving. Given the Z’s racing heritage, we think proper performance wheels are the right ones to be putting on a 350z – not some something cheap and blingy.

These 10 wheels are some of the best wheels for Nissan 350zs that you’ll find.

Enkei RPF1

Enkei RPF1 Nissan 350z Wheels

Manufacturer Enkei
Rim Size (In.): 17-18
Rim Width (In.): 7-10.5
Weight (lbs): 15
Offset: +15mm
Colors: Black, Chrome, Gold, Silver
Check Prices: Amazon | Enjuku Racing

The Enkei RPF1 wheels are some of the most popular, highly rated wheels on the market for 350z enthusiasts. They’re lightweight and aggressive looking, but have all the functionality of high quality race wheels.

Enkei uses a dual, open stance 6-spoke design to make the wheels more rigid, with better stress dispersion, and to allow for harder braking and better handling. These are some of the best 350z rims around for the racetrack.

A lot of 350z owners will run RPF1s in 18×9.5” up front and 18×10.5” in the rear. You will need to roll your fenders with this setup.

Personally we like the “square” setup, in 18×9.5 front and rear.

These wheels are also available in +38mm offset, but the more aggressive +15mm is more widely used on tuned, modified 350zs. Their low offset widens your track nicely, helping your car to be much flatter through the turns.

Volk Racing TE37 Tokyo Time Attack

Nissan Fairlady Z (Z33) with RAYS TE37 Tokyo Time Attack (TTA) Wheels

Manufacturer RAYS Engineering
Rim Size (In.): 18-19
Rim Width (In.): 9.5-10.5
Weight (lbs): 18.5
Offset: +12mm, +22mm
Colors: Double Black with Diamond-Cut Rim
Check Prices: Enjuku Racing

Volk Racing’s TE37 TTA wheels are rather new, having only been out for five years. They were engineered by RAYS, and are based on the iconic TE37 forged monoblock wheel, which has since been discontinued.

The TE37 basically set the standard for what a performance wheel should be.

The TE37 “Tokyo Time Attack” wheels feature a glossy face and polished lip, and a unique color scheme. The new diamond cutting process gave the forged lip a mirror look, and the wheels also carry a larger lip than previous TE37 models.

TE stands for “Touring Edition,” and 37 stands for the weight of the original TE37: an unprecedented 3.7kg (8.15 lbs) per 15” wheel.

These wheels aren’t only head-turners, they’re also extremely good for track racing. With the proprietary, 100% aluminum blend used to forge these wheels, they are one-of-a-kind rims that are both tough and rigid, and also weigh very little.

The most popular size and offsets for 350z enthusiasts would be 18×9.5” with a +12mm offset (typically for the track), and 19×9.5” (+22mm) or 19×10.5” (+22mm) for street use.

Gram Lights 57DR

Nissan 350z with RAYS Gram Lights 57DR Wheels

Manufacturer RAYS Engineering
Rim Size (In.): 18
Rim Width (In.): 8.5-10.5
Weight (lbs): 20
Offset: +12mm, +22mm, +30mm
Colors: Semigloss Black, Gold, White, Silver, Red, Eternal Blue Pearl, Gun Blue, Matte Bronze, Fluorescent Pink, Matte Graphite, Champion White
Check Prices:Amazon | Enjuku Racing

Gram Lights is another brand manufactured by RAYS Engineering, that promises to “push the casting process to its limits.”

For the 350z, the 57DR wheels come in three width sizes, all on 18” rims. They are 8.5” (+30mm offset), 9.5” (+12 or +22mm offset), and 10.5” (+12 or +22mm offset).

Like many performance oriented wheels, the 350z is best suited to use larger wheels in the rear, so your will be most likely to run 18×9.5” in the front, and 18×10.5” in the back.

If you’re going for a square setup though, 18×9.5″ +22mm all-round is a safe choice.

These wheels use a similar 6-spoke design as the infamous Volk TE37 wheels, though these are less than half the price (but without sacrificing quality). For one-piece, cast construction wheels, the 57DR are some of the best 350z rims you’ll find.

They’re very lightweight (like all RAYS wheels), yet sturdy and dependable. They also come in more colors than any other wheel (11 in all!), including outrageous colors like red and fluorescent pink, making them suitable for any 350z.

XXR 526

2005 Nissan 350z running XXR 526 Wheels

Manufacturer: XXR
Rim Size (In.): 18
Rim Width (In.): 9, 10.5
Weight (lbs): 26.3
Offset: +20mm, +25mm, +35mm
Colors: Black, Chromium Black
Check Prices: Amazon

The XXR 526 wheels came out in 2011 to much fanfare. They’re cast aluminum wheels with a triple plated chrome lip that creates a huge, wide lip depth, making them very aggressive and unique looking.

The split 7-spoke design also helps give them a unique appearance, and makes them sturdy and rigid, too.

These wheels come in three sizes for the 350z:

  • 18×9” (+25mm offset)
  • 18×9” (+35mm offset), and
  • 18×10.5” (+20mm offset).

The best 350z wheel setup (and most popular) using the XXR’s 526 is probably 18×9” +25mm all-round, but some people will go for 10.5 on the rear.

The latter is an aggressive setup though, and fender rolling not a “maybe”, you’ll definitely have to do some fender work.

These are also cheap 350z wheels, costing just a fraction of high-end Japanese wheels like those by Enkei and RAYS.

Because of that, they’re quite a bit heavier than other performance oriented 350z wheels, making these best for daily drivers that want to stun passersby with looks.

Varrstoen ES2

Varrstoen ES2 on a Nissan 350z

Manufacturer: Varrstoen
Rim Size (In.): 18-19
Rim Width (In.): 9.5-11
Weight (lbs): 22.95, 25.3
Offset: +12mm – +45mm
Colors: Hyper Black, Silver
Check Prices: Amazon

Varrstoen’s ES2 wheels are a 6-spoke concave design that will make your 350z shine. They’re available in all sorts of sizes, though we’ll stick to 18” and 19” for the 350z.

These wheels have actually been discontinued by the manufacturer, which is a real shame. Thankfully, you can still pick them up around the place – if you can find a set, jump on them!

The offsets for the ES2 come in multiples of five, starting at +15mm (+20mm, +25mm, +30mm, etc.) with the exception of the +12mm and +22mm wheels.

The most common ES2 wheels used by 350z owners are either 19×9.5” or 19×10.5” with a low offset, or 18×10.5”. ES2.2’s in these sizes look amazing on a lowered Z.

These wheels are used by racing teams all over the world, so you can be sure you’re getting some of the best 350z wheels on the market, that are very well built.


SSR GTX01 on a Nissan 350z

Manufacturer: SSR
Rim Size (In.): 18-19
Rim Width (In.): 7.5-10.5
Weight (lbs): 18.65 – 23.74
Offset: +15mm – +45mm
Colors: Dark Silver, Flat Black
Check Prices:Enjuku Racing

SSR offers these GTX01 wheels with a beautiful 10-spoke design, giving them a very modern look. They’re made using “Flow Forming Technology,” making them lightweight wheels that use less material but retain high strength properties.

These wheels are also available in three separate, unique face types:

  1. Type A (Flat)
  2. Type B (Semi Concave)
  3. Type C (Concave)

As if anyone wants wheels that aren’t concave nowadays…

They come in various sizes, though as usual, for the 350z you should use mid- to larger-sized wheels: 18×9.5” (+15mm or +22mm offset), 18×10.5” (same offsets available), or one of the 19” sizes.

The widths for the 19” wheels are 8.5”, 9.5”, and 10.5”, with offsets ranging from +22mm with the widest wheel, to +45mm for the skinniest.

Many 350z enthusiasts use these wheels on their daily drivers, though they’re definitely light and strong enough to take on the track.

Cosmis Racing XT206-R

Cosmis Racing XT206-R

Manufacturer: Cosmis Racing
Rim Size (In.): 18, 20
Rim Width (In.): 9-11
Weight (lbs): 24 – 27
Offset: +8mm, +10mm, +33mm, +35mm, +45mm
Colors: Black Chrome, White, Hyper Bronze, Black, Gun Metal, Bronze, Gold, Hyper Red, Hyper Gold, Black w/Machined Lip, Gun Metal w/Machined Lip
Check Prices: Amazon

Cosmis Racing’s XT206-R wheels are cheap 350z rims that come in a multitude of colors (as many as the Gram Lights 57DR, in fact), and some odd sizes.

There is no 19” wheel available though, which is pretty much the standard size for tuned 350zs.

The sizes available for Z owners are:

  • 18×9” +33mm
  • 18×9.5” +10mm
  • 18×11” +8mm
  • 20×9” +35mm
  • 20×10.5” +45mm

The 20” wheels aren’t necessarily too big for the 350z, but they aren’t our first pick.

And the 11” wide rims are reserved for the rear end of slammed 350z’s with super stretched tires and lots of camber (coilovers are good for this setup).

If you’re not up for the challenge of fitting monster wheels, stay safe with the 18×9.5” +33mm wheels. They’ll look great, especially if your car has a slight drop using coilovers or lowering springs.

These wheels are built using a split 6-spoke design, a classic design that helps with stress dispersion and sturdiness.

Aodhan DS-02

Aodhan DS-02 rims on a Nissan 350z

Manufacturer: Aodhan
Rim Size (In.): 18-19
Rim Width (In.): 8.5-11
Weight (lbs): 25.6
Offset: +15mm, +22mm, +30mm, +35mm
Colors: Bronze w/Machined Lip, Silver w/Machined Face
Check Prices: Amazon | Enjuku Racing

The Aodhan DS-02 wheels feature an open, concave, twisted 5-spoke design with a deep dish lip. You wouldn’t know how cheap they are by looking at them.

They are pretty popular among 350z enthusiasts, though Aodhan isn’t as well known of a brand as, say, Enkei or Volk Racing.

They come in pretty typical sizes for the Nissan 350z with 19×9.5 +22mm being our favorite.

For those going for an aggressive stance, they offer an enormous 19×11″ wheel, which mean serious fender rolling, camber, coilovers and stretched tires.

For the price, it’s hard to beat these wheels. Many 350z drivers don’t like them because they weigh over 25 lbs, but if they are only being used for daily driving, they’re a pretty solid option.

It’s up to personal preference, really, and whether you plan to hit the track or not. These aren’t forged wheels, but onlookers will never know.

Volk Racing CE28N

Volk CE28N on Black Nissan Fairlady Z

Manufacturer: RAYS Engineering
Rim Size (In.): 18
Rim Width (In.): 8.5-10.5
Weight (lbs): 17.76 – 18.76
Offset: +18mm, +28mm, +30mm
Colors: Bronze, Hyper Blue, Hyper Red, Racing Green, Hyper Gold
Check Prices: Enjuku Racing

The Volk Racing CE28N wheels by RAYS come in both 8-spoke and 10-spoke designs, with a bunch of cool, glossy colors to choose from. There’s no subtlety with these wheels: these are racing wheels through and through.

They come in just a few 350z compatible sizes:

  • 18×8.5” +30mm
  • 18×9.5” +28mm
  • 18×10.5” +18mm

Even though they come in limited options, they’re still some of the most popular wheels that 350z drivers use (anything by Volk is, really).

Like other Volk Racing wheels, these are forged from monoblock construction, meaning they aren’t cheap.

Both the 8- and 10-spoke designs are popular for racing, as they’re strong and lightweight.

In fact, these wheels are even lighter than the TE37s (and most other wheels on this list!) at just 17.76 lbs at the 18×9.5” size.

Enkei NT03 Racing Wheel

Enkei NT03 on a Nissan Fairlady Z in Japan

Manufacturer: Enkei
Rim Size (In.): 18
Rim Width (In.): 7.5-10.5
Weight (lbs): 19.9
Offset: +27mm, +30mm, +37mm, +38mm, +40mm
Colors: F1 Silver
Check Prices: Amazon | Enjuku Racing

We began with Enkei, so we’ll end with them—it’s only appropriate since they’re the most popular wheels manufacturer for the 350z, bar none.

The NT03+M wheels are some of the best rims for Nissan 350zs that are hitting the autocross track.

These wheels come in just one color (Silver) and one diameter (18”), though there are various widths and offsets you can choose, depending on what your car is built to do.

350z sizes include:

  • 18×8.5” +38mm
  • 18×9.5” +27mm or +40mm
  • 18×10.5” +30mm

These wheels were designed with a perimeter brace ring that makes them strong and sturdy. They’re very popular for tarmac rally cars as they can take some serious abuse.

They won’t distort easily from things like bumps or scraping against curbs. Like most other Enkei wheels, they’re also very lightweight.

Our Favorite 350z Rims

Since all of the wheels listed are great for racing and daily driving, it’s nearly impossible to pick a wheel based on those two criteria alone.

So, we’ve split this list of the best 350z rims by:

  • price (the cheapest),
  • weight (the lightest), and
  • looks (the most stunning).

Cheap 350z Rims: Cosmis Racing XT206-R

The cheapest rims on this list come in more size options than the other cheap ones (XXR 526). They look awesome with over 11 different color options and a classic 6-spoke design, so you can still stand out even if you’re on a budget.

Lightweight 350z Rims: Enkei RPF1

The most popular 350z wheels are also the lightest and some of the sturdiest, making them great for racing. They come in many different sizes and offsets, and will shave a whole lot of weight.

They’re right in the middle of the pack in terms of price. For a wheel that is so good for racing, they’re actually really good value. That doesn’t mean they are “cheap” though.

These are the official wheels of the McLaren Honda Formula One team, is that’s not confidence enough, we don’t know what is!

Best Looking Rims for the 350z: Volk Racing TE37 TTA Progressive

With its unique glossy face and polished lip from RAYS’ diamond cutting process, that also gives them a mirrored look, these are simply the best looking wheels on the market.

They’re sure to turn heads. If you have the budget, they’re also great for racing, since they’re some of the lightest and strongest out there. A true do-it-all-wheel, ready to win race day on Saturday and show day on Sunday.

  1. Great write-up! I learned a lot! I’m fixing up my Z, a little at a time as I am on a tight budget. It’s my daily driver and I want it look better than average. I’ve added a duck-tail spoiler and a front bumper clip with a big splitter. Custom headlights and taillights too! Side skirts will be delivered soon! I need new wheels. I like the Gram Lights 57DRs. They’re available in white and U mentioned something about “half the price ” sounds good to me!
