Love my Z
I love your Z too. Is that your dog in the background?
Car is nice.
Rims look horrendous.
what did you do with the stock 18's? and can i have them?
chrome on a black z can look sooo nice, just not those 1's man... sry
looks good bro
you in HB?
take a look for my thread in here, that's where you need to have a photoshoot
are you albino?
horrible white balance in the 2nd pic....
nice Z....not the rims though
that is an ugly Z. get new wheels asap
i dont really like the look of them but they are still a very nice car
the rims kill it
your neighbor has a wicked sick RV in the background! and is that some roofing going on across the street?
Cool Dog if it's yours
Rims are ugly as hell
Rest of the car is cool
the rv statement was sarcasam if you didn't catch it
Love the Z and it's heritage. I gotta side with everyone else though and say ditch the rims. Got any under-the-hood mods?
at least it is something different.. i would still drive it.
holy nasty ass rims
I loved the rims but where ruff on the highway so I put the 18's back.
I always like that concept car look, that's why I got this. Nissan was the first to produce the concepts like this that where being thrown around for years.
I would have bigger rims if the car fit them correctly and the tires didn't have to be so small.
The sweetest design is the cars in the Will Smith Ibot
Love that shit.
I respect your choice in rims because its your car, but I'll honestly have to say thats not agood choice. I see too many people these days who don't feel like spending the extra dough (including me , but i've changed) and then getting left with shitty fitting rims (aka wrong offset etc) or in the worst case they feel that because they are dropping 5 g's on some giovanna rims that their car is gonna look like the bomb diggity. In actuallity giovvanna wheel quality sucks and the only reason why they are expensive is because stupid DUB puts out their name. I hope everyone that is getting rims to really study up on offsets and widths because it can really make or break a car.
Notice the flushness (to make it clear this is not my car although i wish it was)
Anytime you get lower profile tires, the car will ride a bit rougher.
Tons of Z's have 20's on them and low profile tires are a must. You drive a Z man...it's a sports car...it's supposed to ride rough. If you want a soft, cushy ride then go get a different car.
20 inch wheels detract from it being a sports car . To a certain extent rotational size and wheel deformation becomes a large factor at around 18 inches optimal size for a 350 for a sports car i'd guess would be 17X9 ~+20in the front and 17X10 ~+20in the rear just a hunch
I understand that, but I was just referring to his comment that he would have bigger rims if they fit. And 20" rims do fit on the Z without a problem.
i like the rims
well then inform this guy that bigger is not always better
that basically sums it up
