After a 6 week wait I've finally got my new 17" ROH wheels. 8.5 inch for the front and 9.5 inch at rear to be mounted with 225 front and 255 at rear. Looking forward to picking up the freshly painted ZG flares this coming week to fit all that rubber under. Hopefully they'll be on the car by next week!

Phwoah! They look the goods!

Be interested to see how much rubber you can squeeze under there. I'm not too keen on the ZG flares as most of the pics I've seen look like they require seriously undersized rubber just so they can run wide rims. Sillyness in my book.

255 on 9.5 is about right though. Keen to see pics.

when i first saw pics of fairlady's i thought normal zeds looked nicer, then i saw those white ones with flares and started to like the flares more and more, and this just makes me want them, hehe, and now the more i look at fairlady's the more i like the gnose...

the gloss black looks nice, specially with the stripe down your car, i'd definately get a front spoiler as nate said...but hey, thats the one thing i actully have done hehe!

Oh putting that first hole in was hard but there was no looking back after that and with the way it looks I can't imagine ever wanting to take the flares off. For those of you thinking about going the flared set up I beleive Ash (ZR240) is about to start making to order some of these bits like, ZG flares, BRE rear fin and he's shown me at least three moulds he has for making front spoilers for Z's. I'm trying to sort out which spoiler to get from him and wether the rear fin is the look I want.
Gav you mentioned the grey SR240 has added the rear fin, I checked site but his photos are all as before!??
Oh and if anybody is curious about how much it would cost to get the flares, rims, tyres. I managed to do it for just over $2500 which I think is reasonable considering the dramatic difference it makes.

Cheers
Sulio

here's some links to the pics of that car with the spoiler, there's atleast one more but u can't really see it at all in it...

side on http://www.sr240z.co...pictures/29.jpg

front corner http://www.sr240z.co...pictures/27.jpg

my background alternates between these :D

hmmm $2500 is like half of wat i paid for my car...but sure is sexy, just outta curiosity did something happen to the very back of your stripe along the side? is that stripe painted or a sticker? (i put gaffa on the side of mine the other day to see what it would look like with the rust covered with black, talk about quality hehe)

Going lower would mean coil overs. Maybe at some point in the future.
I'll add some pics to this thread that show clearance with tyres minus flares and the rear shot you asked for. I'm running lowered king springs. I took it for a spin on the freeway today and it rubs on even small bumps. I will definatley need to cut the guards away even at the height it sits now. I am planning to do this as soon as possible.

I would say $2500 is very good. The Pirelli's for the rear I managed to source as 90% tread for a good price. I beleive they sell for about $500 a tyre new price. My point being it could quite easily cost you 4-5K if you don't shop around.
The stripe is a sticker. I pulled the small bit off at rear to fit flares.
thanks for the links evan.

why'd you pull the bit of sticker off? I would have just bolted the flares over the top....
