16x8 ralley's with 225/50R16 Goodyears did the trick - now I need to lower it!




What did these wheels come on or where did you get them. I have been searching for something like the Chevy pu 15" rally in a 16".

I just got back online ... sorry for the delay

These were custom made wheels - 16x8 Vette Rally - by Wheel Vintiques http://www.wheelvintiques.com/
Custom backspacing was done to clear the 300ZX brake calipers. I think they will look better once I lower it.

I'm almost definitely going to need some custom offset wheels done when I order my wheels from those guys. Was the turnaround time reasonable on those? Price reasonable? How were they to deal with?

Well, all and all it worked out well for me.

They messed up my order at first, the shipped Chevy 5 lug wheels instead of 6 lug. It took a few months because they do custom orders in between runs of their standard offerings. They covered the extra shipping, to have the wrong wheels shipped back to them, and they got "right on it" getting the order right. Not cheap, I think it was about $100 per wheel, but there are many more expensive options - aren't there? They were easy to work with, and they told me the gal that took my first order was only there a few weeks ... she didn't work out.

BTW: I'm running a 4 1/2 inch back space in the rear (normal is 4"), and a 5 inch back space up front with 1" spacers.

Sounds like they worked it out. Glad to hear it.

My truck still doesn't have that fresh dash pad installed, I still haven't lowered it, nothing much has changed.

I just wanted to post a group shot of my Datsun fleet at the start of summer 2015

Thanks for the generous offer izzo ... I will get to it at some point. ;)

I got a pair of Z'd 620 LCA's from mklotz70 a little while back, and scored a pair of 720 4x4 rear springs.
So there has been progress made, I just need to make some time to get things installed and sorted out.

Return to “620”
