  1. Beautiful Car! 71? Wheels look great! Are you at stock ride height? Looks lowered a bit... Very nice!
  2. S30Driver.... what size are your RBs? What size tires are you running? I like the McGard kit as well..... the holes on the lug holes on the ROta rims are only about 1 inch opening.
  3. So if the 225 will fit on stock suspension width wise... the 215 should be no issue correct? My rims are 4mm offset but I have spacers to get it to a zero offset if needed. I am at stock ride height as well so I am hoping the 60s will be fine as well. The picture below is what I am goin for look wise.
  4. AGREED! Wow, your car is beautiful! Great stance too! Is that a 260? Love it! My old 73 240 was a similar color.
  5. Thanks for the response! Are you able to get a socket in with these or does it come with something narrow on these conical lug nuts? What size tires are you running on your RBs? Thanks again! Jeff
  6. First off.... Happy Holidays to all!! I just purchased some ROTA RB's for my 1977 280z. I need some guidance..... It appears as though the stock lug nuts will not work as the lug holes of the new ROTA rims are too narrow to tighten. Any suggestions for lugs? Also, the rims are 15x7. Will a 215/60/15 tire fit without issue? Thanks much in advance! Jeff
  7. Thanks for that! I believe them to be Rota RB's thanks to your help! Now I need to determine offset on a 15x7. I am only finding plus 12mm and I think I need zero offset. Any thoughts?
  8. I really like these rims. I thought they were Konig Rewinds...… but if you look close the have a bit of a bladed edge on the fingers (see pic #2). The Rewinds are more rounded Can anyone identify or know what brand and style these rims are? Thanks in advance! Jeff
  9. Looking for some input and pictures of what tire size you may have currently on your Z with stock rims. I have been all through old threads looking for pictures and recommendations. Attached are the stock wheel I have. 14 inch rims 5.5 inches wide. Currently they have 195/70/14 tires. I want a more aggressive look but stay with the stock 14 inch wheels. I have heard 205/70/14, 215/60/14 and 225/60/14. Not sure if any or all will fit my 5.5 wide rims? Also, if you are running any of those I mentioned.... would love to see a picture of how it looks on your car! Thanks for your help! Jeff

  12. LOL! Well that's not an issue.... still has the stock radio!
  13. Thanks Zed Head... I will check that out first before condemning the tach. Thanks for the diagram. BTW.... I don't know what this resistor does above the coil. Please see the picture I just took..... there may be no connection to my tach issue but it looks like it is coming apart.
  14. What a great picture! … and thank you! I found the resister! It appears to be in the factory bundle still taped and still connected. Could the resistor be bad?
  15. So the resistor location is under the passenger side dash? or located near the keyed ignition when you remove the cover? Also....What does the resistor due above the ignition coil under the hood? Sure appreciate everyone's input!!!
