  1. Just got myself a 280z after a year of searching. There are a couple things that it needs, one of which is wheels and tires. The car is stock as far as I know and can tell. I would like to have it as a daily driver not really going to be tracking or racing it. What is the best tire size I can fit onto the car without needing to make any modifications?
  2. For anybody tired of using the clunky websites to calculate new versus old tire sizes, widths, and heights, I found this handy Excel Spreadsheet. The grey boxes are all drop downs. It allows you to compare two new tire/wheel combinations to an existing setup and shows what the differences will be in inches for height/diameter/radius. The difference for the backside and frontside of the new wheels is in millimeters and inches +/-. https://www.dropbox.com/s/76fr1golryz6wtt/Tire-Wheel%20Calculator.xls?dl=0
  3. hey guys, I am thinking of going a different route for wheels/tires and was thinking about selling my set of Rota Grids. Rota Grid V 15x8 4x114.3 73.1 mm bore Kumho Escta 205 50 15 with around 75% rubber left. They have a nice deep dish and are in really good condition. What would these go for used? Thanks in advanced.
  4. Thinking of getting 14-16 inch wheels + decent tires for my 280zx. Must be local (Bay Area, California) and willing to drive to you. Please post pics and your price. Thank you
  5. Hey im bored, so here are some pics of my current project. T3 Coilovers, XXR 531's 16x9, 245/45r16 Toyo Proxes TR1 all the way around, Rear fenders rolled. Enjoy
  6. I am trying to fit 28X10.5" slicks under my 240z. I spent a lot of time talking to folks who have installed screw-on flares only to have to re-cut due to not cutting enough the first time. I put them high-higher than most (and I hope I like it), but I got to this point working with MiKelly who cut a tire road racing and had to re-cut at least once. The top of the flare is 4" below the hard bend in the quarter panel near the rear of the quarter window. The following are photos from the hot rod shop doing the metal work for me while I'm out of town. The metal man is being great about sending me photos. This is not a custom car, this is a race car, so I'm interested in not cutting a tire. I do not offer these photos as the best way to install flares; rather I only hope to share what I have learned and what I'm doing. I forgot to take my slicks to the metal man for test fit, so that has me stalled for now, but I called back from vacation and a good friend is delivering them in the morning. I need a lot of metal taken out of the dog leg section. I will include a photo of my car squatting on launch wearing 26X8.5 slicks-note how close the tire is to the dog leg. Test mounting the big slicks should answer the question of whether he has removed enough, or if I need him to remake the forward portion of the wheel tub/inner fender. SunnyZ solved this clearance problem by totally redesigning his rear suspension to move the tire rearward 1 full inch. I'm not about that. If push comes to shove, I will go to 27" slicks, but there isn't a lot available in that diameter. More photos when I have them. I made one obvious mistake in locating my flares but I'm pushing forward. When you test fit your flares, make sure the car is level. I test fit with the rear of the car high on jackstands and the front tires on the ground and used a plumb bob to locate the center of the flare over the center of the hub. That resulted in a flare that is rotated rearward somewhat once the car is on level ground. I wish the front of the flare was farher down, but I'm moving on. I will try to stick with the small screws that come with the Z-force Productions flare mounting kit and delay the placement of rivet nuts (which puts a BIG hole in the sheet metal). I may be looking at a paint job this winter (especially if the welding burns my paint up terribly), in which case, I will have the current small holes welded and then rotate the flare and redrill it as it should be.
  7. Hi All! Looking for some wide tires for my 16" Gotti wheels that have just come back from powder coating. Ideally looking for something in the 255/45 - 265/45 range. Wider is better, not interested in anything below a 255. So long as they have tread and are in reasonable shape I am interested! No slicks or race tires please, I already have some of those! Please also be local to the Portland OR area or willing to ship! Thanks
  8. Hey All, I've been running Toyo Proxes R888 tires on my Z the past couple years and they've been great. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, I can't get them in Canada through my usual dealer this year. They're available online but the duty to get them to Canada would be ridiculous and so I'm looking for other options. Typically, due to traction issues I'm sure we all face, I run an R-compound tire (Yokohama Advan or Toyo Proxes) to maximize my stock suspension setup and 299rwhp. But I've been reading a lot on tire websites promoting Extreme Performance Summer tires and I'm trying to figure out if they're a lot of manufacturer mumbo jumbo or a decent option for someone with traction issues and whether or not there will be a massive difference in quality between them and an R-compound. Any thoughts?
