Thank you for the info on cast wheels, never purchased after market wheels before. It's so hard to tell on the internet. What are the better wheel manufactures and wheel types I should consider? I do like the Vossen wheels but they are pricey.

What is your budget?

Not all cast wheels are bad quality! They are not as strong as forged but they are ok! I believe our wheels are cast as well! There are different types of cast wheels! Maybe u can read up on that!

Nice wheels but the offset seems to be a little low for people not interested in lowering. 19x9 ET35. I think that would work ok for the front, but the rears will poke a bit, right?

The 19x10.5 come in ET35 too, not sure what the result of that would be? really wide tires or a smaller tire that doesn't fit (stretched).

I love the look of those Vossen wheels. I'd never put oversized wheels like that, nor lower my car (personal preference and practicality). But a 19" set of those would look sweet. Maybe Vossen will make me a sweet offer on a set if I promise to park it in front of our dealership every day (summer only - stock wheels with snow tires will be the winter shoes).

That they are, but i wasn't talking down on cast wheels, im just saying the ones the OP put up originally looked cheap. Nothing wrong with a nice set of cast wheels, ie Vossen, Velgen, Forgestar, Vorsten etc list goes on. Im sure you know there are different levels of quality when it comes to cast wheels

im a wheel nut so i guess i look at things differently. nothing wrong with a set of cast wheels.

OP, with 114.3 bolt pattern your used wheel options are HUGE! for 1000-1500 you can get a nice set of used wheels. Don't get me wrong, theres nothing wrong with cast wheels. Shoot even HRE has a line of cast wheels.

Just saying you'll be paying at least 1k for those wheels right? you can get a nice set of wheels for that price.

Check out zilvia.net classified for wheels, g35 drivers classifieds, vrwheels, and you can even find deals on craigslist.

Personally I would get a set of 3 piece wheels used (iForged, DPE, Works etc), put a little time refinished/fixing them throw them on the car.

Good advice! Im on the hunt for one as well but havent had any luck with the offsets I like! Even the cf ssr center caps are a pain in the butt to find! :-(
