What Wheels???

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum and have a new 2012 GTR on order. Can't wait to get it, after driving a mates i was hooked.

Just wondering what aftermarket wheel options were available for them as i'm not to keen on the factory ones...

Pictures would be nice and also what size do people think is best?



Thanks guys...

I will buy your factory ones off you brand new when your car arrives, if you'd like to claw back some money.

Size wize, stick with 20s. Can afford to go wider.

I'd made reducing the weight your main priority. Be warned proper gtr wheels are not cheap. Make 100% sure they are forged and not cast. This car generates huge Gs and weighs a lot.

Cheap wheels on this car would be risking your life.

Here's my favourite two wheels

Cor wheels, PM JM Imports for details and options.





Not sure who these are made by, found them on Google images.

Thanks for the info guys...

Has it been known for anyone to do 20" front and 21" or 22" rear like on the Ferraris?

I like the first wheel in the pic... I have seen a brand called ADV1 on the web and they look good also...

ADV1s are advans - very good wheel.

Definitely give Jurgen a call at JM-Imports. He is connected where wheels are concerned and knows what's needed.

Tommorow morning we're shipping a new set of Advan GT's for Simon's 900 bhp + R 35 GT-R; https://www.gtr.co.uk/forum/156766-ju...come-life.html

These rims were introduced at TAS 2012 and have just been released in Japan. Forged construction therefore very strong & light>
Available only in 20" sizes at 10 inches wide at the front & 11 on the rear, they'll sit nice & flush with the arches.

[/QUOTE]

So far they'll be the only set in the UK.

Standard wheels in mint condition look the best in my opinion most of those cars in pictures have been lowered and had bigger brakes that'd why they look good put them onto a standard car and they wownt look like that I've been there buddy

Those second set are also made by COR but made only for Specialized Performance on NAGTROC.

Welcome! I can't imagine changing wheel sizes between axles would do any good to the transmission - Ferrari etc being RWD it doesn't matter but I guess the GT-R computers would throw and absolute fit and eventually cause massive damage to drivetrain with mismatch wheel sizes (unless you kept tyre size down so total height was similar)? Engineering experts - Adamantium for some simple physics?

Have to say the standard wheels to me look far better

I think a 2012 model with 10MY rims would be perfect. The SpecV rims are nice to but I personally hate 99% of these after market rims.

Those ones that were on the juggernaut GTR were
