These all arrived from Japan like that, I've put 19 rears and 18 fronts on a few of my NSX but of course these are just rwd not 4wd
All opinions appreciated!
The gtr awd system is completely different, using a multiplate wet clutch to transfer drive to the front under certain conditions, it's not a full time 4wd system like the evo.

Pray tell us more about the evo's full time 4wd When I come back from ploughing my field I'll read all about it.

I'd like to hear more about excess camber causing the transmission to work at the incorrect angle causing strain....this sounds particularly alarming!

I had 18" wheels on my last evo 5 when I bought it and they ruined the handling. I shudder to think what 19" would do to it.

To fit 10.5" on a 6 I'm pretty sure you'll need wide arches or some serious arch mods.

The car is up on my ramp at the moment, I'll fit them (but wont use them) just to see what they look like. Looking at them I'd now agree they are probably far too big so I'll put them back on my 350z in the spring
