The official "Post pictures of your wheels" thread

Recommended Posts

Jeff, are you still in need of 14" wheels. Do they have to be 6" wide? I might have some 14x?" that I could part with. Let me know and I'll look at my stash.Al

Al, I think I've got what I need. In October, I tried the slotted hole six-spoke wheels during practice and they held torque. I also raced for 25.5 hours on the rim with the slightly damaged lug holes and it held fine as well.

The main thing I learned is that shank style lugnuts from auto parts stores are not made well enough for severe use such as racing. I noticed that we had to keep retorquing several of the wheels early in the race and when I inspected the nuts, I found that the nuts themselves were wearing badly where they interface with the washers. I used a different set of nuts (with shorter shanks) that I bought off ebay on the damaged wheel and that was the only one that held torque throughout the race. After 25.5 hours and 1400 race miles, the ebay nuts looked like new and the Autozone nuts were in lousy shape.

Sold the Kosei K1's and bought these from Mario Perez. 15X7 Panasports. I will be using these for track wheels and a second 16X7 set for street wheels. Damn, R-rated rubber doesn't last very long on the street.

In the mid to late 70's I knew a guy with 3 piece BBS wheels with gold centers and Pirelli P7's on his 240Z. It was a terrific combination. Is anyone running vintage BBS wheels?

A buddy of mine, who is on here by the way. has these which he sent home with me to sell for him. 0 offset, Enkei 15X7 that look very BBS like. Very easy restoration would make them great street wheels...
