370z rims on a 6?

So i’ve been working on my car on and off and right now its totally torn apart. I just got a steal on a set of Rays 370z rims so I thought why not. I really wanted to try 19s on my 6 and loved the look of these so I got them. I hope they clear my bbk when the front is back together. What are your guys thoughts on these?

Whoa!! That's pretty tight clearance. I like the flush though.

The rims look good with the car. Only drive on straight roads, though! ;p

Manual transmissions, wagons, and heavy metal are awesome. Zoom-Zoom \m/

If the tolerance is that tight on the rear I'll be more than surprised if the fronts will fit. I don't think rolling the fenders will be enough as well.

Do you know the size of the rims? 19x__ et__ Size of the tires?

BTW, though I suppose rolling the fenders could be accomplished properly by a skilled tradesperson realize that this very "sensitive" / rust-prone area would of course have any factory applied self healing waxy/oily coatings disturbed by the process of rolling. Each to their own - but me, I wouldn't go there 😐.

They are 19x9s Im running all front rims. The tires are 265/30/19 i believe. I plan on putting 225s on though.

The rear wheel wells on these as we all know rust very easy. I took the liberty to cut out all the rust and patch them taking into account that I would be running some pretty tight fitment :P
