    They came out of the factory with 14x5.5J steel wheels.

    But I dont think this is what you're wanting...! Usually, the GT-R mockups in Japan wear Watanabes, 14 or 15" and usually wider at the back. I had great fun asking advice from everyone way back when I was looking for wheels!! I ended up with 14x7.5 and 14x9.0 - I dont think much wider on the rear would be physically possible though... What you want to pay particular attention to is the offset - only "deep dish" kind of wheels will fit I think.

    hmm.. wish i knew a little more about offsets etc..

    found a set of 15" watanabe RS's for about $200 a rim, just trying to check what the PCD is on them.. any idea what sort of offset i will need (though i am sure it will be different according to the brakes etc.. especially since we are customising the brakes , i know i know.. no easy answers )

    No problems, be sure to keep us up to date on the wheels and whether they're suitable enough!
