G35 5AT that I paid $500 :) Project nearly complete
G35 Square Factory 18 inch setup questions

Hey guys, long time lurker first time poster. Quick background i buy/fix/flip vehicles from a living from insurance auctions and bought a G35 with no key for $500 a while back to keep for myself All that to be said I'm trying to find out if anyone has run a factory 18 inch square set up and if so what size tires and was there any rubbing issues? Cant seem to find any examples on here with a factory 18 square setup. Getting ready to get body work done on this mistreated machine. Had to replace all of the following:

Window Motor
02 sensor
PVC Valve
Ignition Coil
Rear/Front Brakes
RF Ball Joint
Rear Struts & Bushings
All 4 sway bar links
Front inner and outer tie rods
Broth front bearings (suspension was GARBAGE)

Front Bumper cover, windshield, and just fixing the body in general

Got lucky and tracked down a second factory set of rims for $125 with two good tires! Pretty stoked on the deal, thanks for the help

Pics of how i bought this thing attached from beginning to now, just trying to get it back from the grave.

1st day, smoked light crazy

wheels for 125 i snagged

Now: Peep the duck tape holding the sheered front bumper cover on, lul

You're in luck and didn't even know it. The wheels you have are the coupe sport 18's, IIRC they're 18X8 +30, so you already have your square set-up. I don't remember the exact stock tire sizes but they are in no danger of rubbing, the stock set-up leaves the wheels/tires sunken into the wheel well a significant amount.

Awesome, so it sounds like the tires are staggered not the rims. Thanks for the clarification, much appreciated.
