Just got a 2003 White Infiniti G35 sedan. Wanted to know what some of you would think about these rims on that car.

Thanks

Those look like Tenzo Cuzcos. Nice looking wheel, but I wouldn't color match the car. Go with a classic silver wheel. They will still look "in style" in 10 years.

Cuzco wheels are kind of heavy..

What brand would you recommend that won't break the bank? Looking for 18s. Would love to stay around 1k or lower/

I guess I should have asked and not assumed,sorry..

Are you going for looks, performance or both?

They don't make them anymore, but you can find them used for about 1k, or close to it. My 18x8's weigh 17.6 lbs a piece which dropped about 9 lbs/corner over stock wheels. What a huge difference.

I disagree with Barry. I say color match all the way. White cars with white wheels look sweet. Or, I would say go with a black wheel with a white lip.

I'm with Dave, go with what you like on the car " now" not 10 years on down the road.....

Secondly...do you really plan on keeping the car 10 years????

I like some color matched rims...I liek all black on white cars/trucks too.

Some black rims with a white lip would be awesome. I haven't been able to find any online though. Maybe someone could point me in the right direction. Yeah not keeping the car ten years. I'm a second year in college so once I graduate and get a job, I will be purchasing a new car.

I guess I'm the odd duck-
Style takes a back seat to performance for me. Unless I can find a stylish performance wheel.. you won't touch one for under 400/wheel.
I keep my cars until they become problematic. Last car I had for 13 years so what it looks like in ten years is just as important as what it looks like today..
