I brought my car home today from Beshoff Infiniti, swaped out the factory rims on the Q50 to the accessory M series wheels better pictures to come. The m wheels are 20x9 with a 43 offset. They close up the wheel wells and look great. Let me know if you have any questions.

Nice! U can still probably put in 10mm spacers in front and 15mm on the rear to make it flush!

More pics pls! :D

that looks great, i've always wanted to try putting M37S wheels on my car to see how it would look, did you go up on over all tire diameter as well ?

im guessing you dont have DAS either so no problems with that?

Edit : so yeah you did go up in over all tire size compared to the stock 19s

Wow, looks great!
The ride is softer because you got rid of the sh** run flats.

The only problem I see is the increased overall diameter, it will mess up your speedometer/odometer readings and probably cause problems with the traction control system.
Hopefully you don't have the DAS.

Probably run 245/35/20 to compensate with overall diameter then?

I did not want the DAS so no issuse there. I do not see the traction control being effected as I have not seen that on previous infinit models with slighty larger wheels. I can not confirm this yet and I have not even put 100 miles on it yet. I will let everyonr knoe if there are any problems. I did not want to run 35 series tires due to the harsher ride, gap in wheel well, and easier to damage wheel in pot holes. The speedometer should be off a little bit I am going to get it recalibrated. More pics in a couple hours... :D

i think you should give the 245/35/20 a try, seems a little too much tire for the car/rim combo, as they are 20s after all, other the that i think the rims look great !

Looks Excellent ! shouldn't be any problem with the size this is less than 1" taller in height overall and @ 3% . don't think it would effect DAS either. i pick mine up this week ( Q50SAWD Hybrid ) and looks like exactly what i am going to do. 20" wheels of equal size with this tire size will fill the wheel wells perfectly and eliminate the rougher ride from the run flats. i did this with my last C6 vette and was excellent in both ride and looks without lowering . just deciding on the offset at 25 with the 10.5 or a 9"

the M wheels look great on this one also !

WOW!!! I love them!!! What they set you back? .... Also, I see they are gunmetal. All the ones I am finding on the bay are silver, is the gunmetal a 2014 option?

A few more pics
The wheels look really nice on the Q. At first glance though I thought I was looking at a M37 from the side just because of the wheels though.

It cost me a little over a grand, the dealership bought back my factory wheels to upgrade a 17 inch customer. The wheels are an accessory item, I believe only a few m56s came with the wheels from the factory. The part number for the wheel I have is D0300-1MU9J and the center cap is a 40343-1CA4A.
