Are you talking about clearance? No problems. Many people have changed them. Obviously make sure whoever you're ordering from understands they are for a GTR. If you want two sets of wheels, you'll need another set of TPMS sensors to put in new wheels and you'l have to see the dealer to have the TPMS sensors reprogrammed every time you switch between your wheels.

+1. I have aftermarket wheels on during summer (BBS LM-DBK, designed specifically for the GT-R and identical in size to the OEM wheels). I have the OEM tires mounted on the BBS wheels and have had no problems with brakes or anything else. I just ordered Blizzak LM-25 tires for the OEM wheels (with the extra set of TPMS) for wintertime. I'll be heading to the dealer to re-activate the TPMS each time I swap wheels in spring and fall.

Just make sure that you use wheels with a proper offset and spoke clearance. Feel free to send me a PM, email, or telephone call if you have questions.
