Original Appliance 14 x 7 aluminum mags that were purchased in Orlando, Florida for $150 in early 1972.

The original center caps succumbed to Florida rust cancer and were replaced with Eagle caps sometime this decade.

Might I suggest updating the first post to also request tire size along with your wheel specs (if known). Maybe if you're lowered too

My car has:

Coop, they were on the 280 when I bought it back in 1990. At that time, the car had been sitting for about 5 years, so they are at least 26 years old - maybe more. I like the wheels a lot, but they have the stupid slotted lug holes that accept multiple bolt circles. I am afraid to use them on the 260 race car even though I need another set of 14x6 wheels for the track. Has anybody ever used wheels with this style hub on the track? I have never been able to verify if they were designed to use some sort of insert. There were "Unilug" wheels of the same era that used a washer with an offset hole, but these don't appear to use anything other than a regular shank style lugnut.

Jeff. Those could have been my old wheels but mine weren't slotted. They looked good with the gold trim and the yellow paint job. Sort of like a Ferrari. I found them to be a nuisance when I started to run them in ITS back in 1987, what with always removing them to bleed brakes, etc. So I switched to a proper lugged 14x7. I would never run the old shank type of wheels on the track. In fact, I once had a shank type of wheel modified with pressed inserts in order to use the beveled lug nuts. Nice.

We had one of the Vectors come loose last year mid-race. Luckily it didn't come off, but it did booger up the lug holes in the wheel. I hate shank-style wheels!!! They are a pain in the arse to get on and off quickly and the nuts are getting hard to find.

I got a line on a set of those 280Z on Enkei(?) 14x6 wheels and 215/60R14. They are on a project car that will not be using them since the car was rebodied to a GTO 250. I am sure they are for sale here in San Diego if anyone is interested...local deal and pick up of course. I will get some pictures of my wheels on here, Watanabe's 15x7s with medal center caps. Got a set of Centerlines, Turbines and recently restored a set of SSR Reverse Mesh 15X7s, I had the centers powder coated silver. They will be for sale.

The "280Z on Enkei(?)" wheels aren't Enkeis. They look like Gotti replicas as built by either American Racing or Ultra. Enkei never made that style.

It took quite a bit of searching, but Enkei did actually make a wheel that looks just like mine. The Enkei model was called Easyrider. Unfortunately, there are no markings on the wheels, so I have no idea if mine are actually Enkei or not. Here is a picture I found of the Enkei Easyriders.


and here are my wheels
