^err.... those rims are embarassing IMO i get laughed at for having them on, they're in stellar condition so if you wanna buy them
The old bridgestone potenzas are actually new and still have that red line going down the middle, and the high profile means it's never been curbed in the last 22 years

This probably gives a better idea of the rear wheels, i think a one inch to one and 1/4 inch should do the trick for the back

With the money spent on that, you could've bought something nicer off Zilvia.
No tires, but hotter wheels with better sizing.

Link?

BTW do u still have those shiro springs?

hmm the wheels were cheaper than the tires lol

It was hard to find something to work because the original wheels were 6.5" with a 20 offset FML...
But right now it already sticks out the same as before so i don't mind

Just google zilvia

Yeah I still have those Shiros.

17x8+5 and 17x9+12's look tiny on my friends Z31.
So if you're looking, go for 9/10's

Hmm theres some rust behind the rear wheel like typical cars of this age, but it can prolly be fixed easily,
Exteriorwise it is pretty mint
but mechanically not so much, Engine is great but transmission is...
I'm afraid to do any hard launches etc. even though the engine has the power to,

^Price of the wheels and tires? $1000 at sora't in north van, they're an RS sponsor gave me some 5mm spacers, and sprayed my calibers and hub black just because it didn't look right, excellent service overall and great deal IMO considering volco sells these tires for like >$600
