Don't ask me, I would just drive normally and hit normal bumps and what not, then would see bends in my lips. I never drove it offroad haha.

you'll definitely get flamed on this board for running less-than-Volks/Works/IForged/HRE's...just so you know.

BUT: If you could care less about other people's opinions, and just like your car to be that, 'your car' then go for it, like I did.
Plus Tenzo's will save you about 2 grand as opposed to going with the high end wheels. You'll also notice that the people around here that get those high end wheels swap out wheels often, displaying their obvious generous amount of $$ income to be able to do so and take the $$ hit each time.
If you have a g35 and are like, 'damn, this was expensive enough as it is' then enjoy whatever wheels you can get/afford comfortably, and just be happy with em. If they bend, than sucks, but mine haven't yet.

Here's my Tenzo's for all to see and enjoy and flame on etc. But the good thing is, that i like em, and i'm the one that drives em. They're not the exact spoke design as yours, but similar in look for you to get the idea. FYI yours have a more purplish/magenta red stripe, mine have a bit brighter orangey red stripe (i've seen both in person).

18's on the teg...how thick were your sidewalls, and it also depends on your tire.

i think these look pretty good on your car. the pics REALLY help. thank you very much for those. when i do get them, and by some chance i don't like them, i can always sell them and get something else. but i will post pics of them and ask what ppl think.

Don't get me wrong, I do like how the wheels look, I've just had a bad experience with the ones I owned. I'd never flame anyone for their wheels, it's your car...you drive it...do what you like to it. I have a set of Works, and I'm also broke...but saved up for like 6 months to buy my wheels so that really doesn't have anything to do with it.

I am interested in these rims but why do I keep seeing responses about the possibility of poor quality? :S

In terms of quality, would these rims be the same or worse or better than stock rims? I drive an 07 sedan with 17's.

I really like those rims. Im really considering them.

I saw the black/red stripe dc-5's on a silver 350z the other day and I thought they looked really good. I think if you like them you should just go for it.

the first wheel is the volk gt-v, i bet if you had posted that wheel instead, all the flamers would have kissed your similar wheels, different manufacturingg processes, volk two piece forged, lighter than the tenzo? for sure. Does not come in black or time attack, you would have to pay extra for custom color. so if you like it, go for it, personally i think they'll look great.
