Cool pics but I'm pretty sure those are photoshopped and don't represent real fitment.

They look mean on the G sedan. Not all that on the coupe, but probably due to the fact that it needs a drop. They look good on the Z.

The only one that seems fake to me is the 3rd pic of the G with the smoke wheels. The Z is real and it shows up in every single one of these threads. Bravo to the OP for trying to make an official GTR wheel thread, its been long overdue I think.

At first I thought you were completely wrong about your posted wheel specs, but I looked it up and sure enough, the 2010 specs listed by Nissan-USA are what you posted, however. The 2009 GTR wheels have different offsets on the same size wheels. The 2009 specs for the GTR wheels are 20x9.5+45 front and 20x10.5+25 rear.
This is something a shopper consider when looking for GTR wheels. The front 2009 wheels will benefit greatly with 25mm bolt on spacers, otherwise they might have clearance issues on a G35 coupe. The new specs, you could leave alone or add a 10mm spacer if you want them more flush.

Here are some stamping pictures:

So I'm curious if the 2010 specs are accurate or a typo?

Why would they change offsets?

I would give a left nut for those wheels.

No they are not, photos found from the web, sorry. I would suspect they fall in the 25-30lb range which is light in terms of 20-in wheels, but thats just a guess.

Well they did say that the 2010 update did see revised suspension/handling changes that improved the performance, so maybe they found that simply adding 25mm to the width of the front track just by changing the wheel offset from 45 to 20 gave them a simple solution? Same for the rear, maybe 5mm added to the rear track provided better balance and grip, who knows. it's those little tweaks that can make a difference sometimes.

Makes sense they changed the offsets. I saw a pic of a G sedan with the 370z wheels and the rear tire stuck out a touch.
