Anyone ID this rim style?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

we just picked up an early 74 260Z, rust bucket- but some useful parts at least. Has rims i've not seen before, can anyone identify them? (14 inch)

I'll try to attach the pic...1052229091?folder=INBOX&form=fetch&pos=0&mimeid=1.2

again.. D:\WINNT\Profiles\ntmanager\Desktop\Dcp_0071.jpg

This is a picture of the Z Car shop owner's car here in Brisbane (Alan Stean). Looks like a picture from the Race to the Sky rally in New Zealand. The car is driven by Ross Dunkerton.

I think they call these turbo wheels. Maybe you could email Alan at the Z Car workshop and ask him directly.

OK, i guess i am impaired, but the pic appeared this morning for me:stupid: So i have put it in my gallery, since i can't seem to make this happen here at work.

George- those rims are known as "Turbine" style here, i have a set exactly like that on my silver 73:love: I believe that there were a few manufacturers that made similar wheels; Appliance, Western Wheels, etc.

I got mine on Ebay a few years back-

Thanks, Jeremiah

Check the wheels in my galery......they look similar by looking at the photo. Mine are Western Wheel with I believe 13 spokes Appliance made a similar one called Vector that had a few more spokes than the ones I have. My gallery has a close up of the wheel.

Hi Axtell here, i think, is the wheel you want identifying.. love the yellow Z thing. :)


Looks to be from a '80-'83 Plymouth Sapporo / Dodge Challenger.

These wheels are known to fit the Z.

Bill - thank you, for the name of the wheels... they look good :) Nice Z too..

Well, yes, they do look better on the Z- but we hoped they were some rare, valuable (sellable) piece. Of course on Ebay, you can always find someone glad to overpay!LOL

Thanks for the help!

oops sorry man.. you shouldnt have asked to ID them... I see the ebay title now "Very Rare Datsun Z Wheels" Starting bid $500 LOL

Don't worry at least now you can get the Ebay title correct and sell them to a Sapporo owner! :)
