Attended the Q50 Launch Event here in NC, and was told by my sales guy that this would be the Sport Bright Finish Wheel. Only going by what he told me, so don't shoot me if it doesn't happen, because I really thought I saw another design as he flipped through some black and white paperwork.

It's definitely not a bright chrome, but has more of a darker tint to it, and would really go well with the car.

Hmm. I was wondering what those "bright finish" 19s were like. Hard to tell w/o seeing em on the car whether or not I'd prefer them. But I would probably skip into aftermarket for that matter

Thanks for the pic

I recently started a thread asking for such a pic

If the moderator could please merge the threads that woul be great

Are you able to tell if it a polished finish or a chrome job?

Machine finished wheels are in recently and the quality I have seen is outstanding.

One interesting note for this one is in your excellent pic you can see that Infiniti allowed Enkei to present their brand on the rim.

Those are the same sport wheels from the current G37S coupe... Not a bad thing but def was hoping for a unique design. Wish there was a further back pic to show what they look like on the car. But thanks for the pics.

I've seen them on display at the dealership & I hate it. Looks too artificial and excessive IMO. If I was to pay a premium on top of my (nice) Sport wheels, I'd invest in some Asanti's or Vossens.

Ohhh! I guess I gotta see it for myself then although I am not about to purchase these wheels since I am still probably going to go for the Vossen CV7s! I like the design! Just like the touring 350z wheels but with a split!

Chrome rims are forbidden by Infiniti to all the dealers:

I have the bright finish rims on my 2013 G37x S. They were included at no extra cost to me under my lease terms and are otherwise an $1,800 upgrade. They appear dark at night and bright in sunlight which is a unique effect. However, after taking my G to a higher end car wash twice where the techs hand wash the rims, they were unable to remove the residue thereby making these new rims appear unwashed/older. There is some form of greasy residue on them that will not come off and this is something they claimed to never have run into before. My 2010 G37x S with the standard rims did not have this issue at all. I would therefore exercise caution if considering these rims.
