Acura RSX wheels on a G35 Coupe?

I know this is odd, but there is a reason for my question.

I know that the bolt pattern for the Acura RSX and G35 are the same (5x114.3), but what else should I watch out for? Will these fit my G35 Coupe (06, non-brembo)?

The backstory:
I want to powdercoat my wheels, but I only have one set at the moment, so I need to put my car on something. My friend has an RSX and has extra OEM rims from them laying around, so he said I could borrow them. My plan was to throw those on, take my off and unmount my tires, get the wheels powdercoated, re-mount the tires and swap back. Anything I should watch out for here?

Thanks!

they may have the same bolt pattern but they won't necessarily have the right offsets to fit your brakes. it would be interesting to see though. the rsx wheels would look super small.

if they fit, i will look totally "pushed in" (not flush with fenders).

Thanks for the answers guys. To answer the "why not rent a car" question, I don't have anything to put my car on if I take off all 4 wheels. :P

For me, this is a temporary fix so I don't really care if it looks good, just that it functionally works.

Does anyone know what offset I need to clear my brakes? I don't have brembos.

Ok, so I found out they have 45mm offsets, like the sedan. I have 30 mm offsets. Any idea if this will work?

Won't work, the hub bore size on Honda wheels are too small compared to the Nissan size. Why not pick up 4 jacks and use those?

Thanks for all the responses. It's really helping me figure out what to look at.

Ok, the G35 centerbore is 66.1, correct?
I found sites stating RSX bore size is 70.3. Does this mean it's bigger? What implications does this have?

Also, using the wheel offset calculator:


I entered the following data:
fronts are 8 width, 30 offset
rears are 8.5 width, 33 offset

Acura has 7 width, 45 offset.

Fronts have 2mm less clearance (which shouldn't be an issue)
Rears have 7mm more clearance.

Does this seem right to you? Does this mean it will work? Forgive my ignorance.

Damn, I was wrong. Hopped over to the RSX forum and found that their centerbore was 64.1.
