280z rim width standard?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am wondering if the US 280z came out standard with wider than 5" width rims?

If they did I am after info to give to my engineer to warrant going to a 7" width rim.

In New South Wales , Australia, we can only increase the rim width legally by 1.5" if the car is after 1973 and under 1200kg.

So I am trying to find info on the later s30 280z, or if there was a turbo s30 that had wider rims than 5" .

My car is a 1974 260z.

The US 280 had the optional alloy wheel (shown in my avitar). It was 5.5" but that was only on the 75-78 280Z. The later 79-83 280ZX had 6" wide alloys as an option in the 6 spoke and 'Iron Cross' style wheel and the 15" 'Swastika' on the Turbo which I believe was also 6" wide.
