I managed to source some wheels for my newly acquired 240Z and what a difference it has made to the look of the car. Not that the wheels I've fitted are anything special, and to be honest there's more than enough Z's running around with this style of wheel but I'm still a fan of them. It really gives the car the look I was hoping for. I'm not sure what the thinking was behind the wheels that were fitted to it originally? Each to their own I guess.

I like your old rims, they suit the car really well.

Can't argue with the new set though. ;)

As I have said before.....

"Why is it so? You can spend many thousands on engines, drivelines and suspension.....but a car always looks much faster with a great set of mags  ??? Mine looked ordinary until I put the right mags on it

That looks fantastic!"

To which Sydney Mike replied and so true.......

"Wheels must be the car equivalent of a boob job"

I agree. Mike's analogy is spot on!

One of the guys in my car club owns a green 240z over in America with pretty much the same style wheels so it must have been a theme back in the day.
