    Default Work S1's or Equips on my 350z?! help!

    EDIT:
    S1's WIN!
    Just built and order a mean set
    19x10 et-7
    19x11 et-7

    Now onto my next journey... air ride.

    Please check out the fittipaldi fs thread in the wheels section... buy them and fund my suspension! Thanks for all your help guys!





    i will be purchasing one of the two sets of wheels this weekend. im completely on the fence as both have there advantages and disadvantages. the price will be the same in the end, the S1s will run me $2500 with tires but will need new ones to get the look im going for. the equips come with tires also that will work but have 40% life and cost $3200. so price is irrelevant. basically just need the opinions of everyone else. i am going for a very aggressive look.

    the car will be on airride also

    My Car


    Equips (gold bolts)

    S1's (gold or pikes peak white bolts)


    myself im leaning towards the S1s. i like the equips but i dont know how i feel about the flat lips and the full polish on white... please leave any and all suggestions. thanks!

    If you choose any of the 3 youll be fine. They all look incedible. The black Z is a friend of mine, I have seen it in person, and LOVE the way it is. I am also a HUGE Meister S1 fan, and the Eurolines look DOPE. Just get the correct size and offset, and theyll be beautiful.

    Thanks guys, like I figured.. most took to the equips. Its over all a more aggressive wheel but at the same time the z on the equips is stanced great where as the s1s really isn't so its decieving. Ah decisions..

    That's exactly what turned me on to the s1. The gold face and the stepped lips give it a unique look where the equips are really plain, clean but plain. I feel like in the end id end up painting the equips and id be into the for way more then id want to be, on top of needing new tires next season.. turns them into $4200+ wheels.

    You really only have one option here and that is the Equips, reason being is that you want proper fitment and I know Nevaland and those Equips have the right offset. Those S1's don't have the right stuff to pull of a proper fitment Z. End of story..

    Contact me if you are interested in DPE Wheels edafe@dpe-wheels.com

    Truth.

    If he hasn't sold them yet, If you were going with brand new wheels, Id say go with custom size and offset S1s.

    The equips will need spaced fronts and the s1s will need spacers on both. Nevaland has become unresponsive so I may be stuck with the s1s. while I agree with you royal, I feel the s1s will look good with a 25mm spacer in the rear. There +22et in the rear and I'm not sure about the fronts yet. This all may be irrelivant if nevaland sold them. Haven't heard from him in 24 hours.
