Can someone please tell me the offset for a 260z 2 seater?
I was told that if you don't have to right offset the car will bump steer. True or not?

offset is about +12 for a zed. If you're looking for aftermarket wheels, pretty much the only thing is superlites, unless you run bolt on adaptors. The car can bump steer with incorrect offset, but I believe zeds are more prone to chew out wheel bearings.

Just curious. Over the years I've heard wheel offsets for Z being stated anywhere from -15 to +15. Most commonly I've read 0mm mentioned. I'm not all that concerned as I believe with a 7" wide rim you could fit anything from a -15 to +15 offset on a Z. What do the superlights come as when ordered for a Z because they seem to fit nicely, i think it might be 0. I personally like going slightly negative to fill those guards a little.

For a 240Z/260Z the 'ideal' offset for a 7" rim is 0 (zero).
