While I was helping my buddy with his brakes, I decided to throw one of his rims on... What do you think? Good look or nah?
Haha yeah, I don't recall ever seeing them on a DSM before. I'll probably end up getting something with a dish (because I'm in love with lips on a 1g) But, if he wants to give 'em to me? Hell yeah I'll rock them. Fitment is great FYI. The one I had on the was a 225, I'm pretty curious what the 245's he had on the rear of his G would look like. Maybe when he's here next I'll get all four on the car and post some pics for y'all!They looks good! Beats getting some pos rotas. Thanks for sharing, don't mind if i steal the idea haha.
You're absolutely correct here, 1g's are not classically beautiful and I think that's why I love them. They are scrappy fighters with a ton oh heart. My friend with the G35 hates the way the 1g looks, but has a ton of respect for them and understands why I like them.I don't like it. The DSM looks good (I love love love the 1gb Talon), the wheels have a subtle coolness about them, and the Infiniti looks sharp.
But to me, the 1g shape and style just dont jive with anything over 17". Even most 17s look a bit off on these cars. Similar to how 26" looks on an SUV. Kind of goofy.
To me there's nothing stylish about the narrow shaped 1g, which appears to have been designed after a doorstop. Aesthetically, the 1g is a bit more rugged and ugly looking- like a scrapy fighter from the docks. A Rolex would look out of place on him. I still think the 1g is cool looking but not because its good looking. Similar to why people think tanks look badass. Its not cos they have sexy lines.
So that's my opinion. More tire [more cowbell] for the 1g and less wheel.
Yes, they would need a little grinding to the center, but not much. Just stuck the one on there for show, only put three lugs on.I was always under the impression the G35 rims wouldn't fit without work to the centerbore. I'm assuming that test mount was plug and play?
Hey thanks! Yeah, I take great pride in keeping it as nice as possible, like most of us DSMer's probably. A nice clean 1G especially with a tucked/clean engine bay can be a beautiful thing! I know my head always turns that little bit extra for a clean looking one!From the angles we can see, you have a clean 1gb. Nice car! The wheels, look pretty cool, too.
