Need help asap!!

Discount tire has the MB battles in stock right now. and I was just about to place an order but decided to check here first. This question is about the front wheels. they have 17x9 +30mm... if I want +15 I have to get the 17x9.5

I really want the 17x9 so If I get the +30mm will it fit sunken in or will it be flush with the fenders? if you have pics of +30mm on the front it would help quite a bit.

ok here is what confuses me. according to this site Wheel Specifications - Nissan 350Z & 370Z Wiki the my G35 wheels are 30mm




This is my car



The front wheels fits nice to me. its the rear g35 wheels that looks like its sunken in a half inch. so I defiantly need +15mm for my rears. but I dont know if +30mm 17x9 Battles will fit like 30mm 18x8 stock g35's. if it matters my g35 wheels have 245/45's in the front. so that could be why it doesnt look sunken, but it does rub like a bitch

17x9.5 +15 all around. 215/45-17 upfront and 235 or 245/40-17s in the rear. Done an done...

The difference between the G35 wheels and the 17x9 +30 is that the extra inch. Basically, you end up with half an inch on the inside of the wheels (towards the strut) and half an inch to the outside towards the fenders. The problem you will have clearing will be the inside part. Depending on the suspension, you will more than likely need a 5mm spacer to clear the inside.

If you need a reference on what 17x9.5 +15 would look like...heres a set of my old wheels. 18x9.5 +12 with 235/40-18s all around
