I'm kinda kickin' myself in the rear, I regret not opting for the sport wheels/tires. I don't regret not getting the sport package, it rode a little too hard for my taste, but **** those 19-inchers look great for OEM.

Hmmm, wonder if my dealer would be willing to throw me a bone??

I like the style of the 19" sport wheels, however I wish Infiniti would have offered them in a polished finish instead of the gunmetal finish. IMO, the wheels only look good with certain exterior colors and clash with other exterior colors like the Bronze. It's sort of like wearing black or gray shoes with a brown suit. :confused:

That's a fair statement - I thought they were offering a high polish version? Although maybe the OEM polished version don't have the inserts.....

I couldn't believe that 17" wheels/tires come standard with the Q50 unless you're ordering the Sport model or higher. I got the Premium pkg. w/AWD, Leather & Nav but I couldn't stand the look of the 17" wheels so I told the dealer to add on the 19" wheels which look great. I paid an extra $1,000 for the 19" wheels. Well worth it!

Well said for the sport suspension. It was a bit rough for me BUT i did get the 19" "Sport wheels" on my car. Also I pulled the run flats that came with the car off after 8 days and put Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires on the car.. What an amazing tire!! Quiet, Smooth ride.. A very nice upgrade. If these tires were on the sports package I might have gone with it. They are that comfortable.

Anybody want to buy 19" run flats with 300 miles on them for cheap??

Oh.. My dealer wouldn't move on tire / rim swap outs when i bought the car..

Not only the dealer, but two tire dealerships wouldn't take them either. It was explained to me that once tires are mounted on a car, they can't be sold as new, even if they only have a few miles on them. The RFTs that came on the car, are now on my trade in - luckily, my trade had tires that had relatively few miles on them, so the dealer and I just swapped, even up.
