Rays recommended fitments.

17x8.5 +30 / 17x9.5 +35


I was giving 18" rims a thought, but I can't afford the $400 a corner for middle of the range tyres.

Understeer is when you hit the tree with the front wheel.
Oversteer is when you hit it with the back.
Horsepower is how hard you hit the tree...
Torque is how far you drag it...

Aloha,
Only two mods so far:

Weapon-r Secret Weapon Intake
Varis cf Intake Duct

Intake really made a difference in mid to high RPM and the duct probably will help in high speed runs (not that I would go over the speed limit, LOL), but it does help to enhance the sound of Lady Z when she roars! Besides, I get a lot of comments about it.

Discarded the spare a-la Euro style, lined the huge area with black and
packed away a small air pump and bottle of Fineleak behind the rear
af the area and behind the upholstery.

Bloody useful mod - and NRMA can help if the tyre goes right out.

(Mind you, in the last 9 years and 270,000k, never had a flat!)

Fuggen - bet I spoke too soon now!

frizzle anymore info on where to buy that spare tyre in a can stuff? or what brand to look for?

my spare is out of the car now

best mod for me is the xenons. Stock halogen lights are absolute crap, there was absolutely no light output on the road in the wet. Thank tight arse Nissan Aus for selling only the premium models, but skimping on xenons

TPI-ACE:

I had a friend who was a TPI - what's your disability?

I put a really thick rubber down on the floor of the spare well to level up to the
height of the protrusion that anchors the spare bolt. Cost only a couple of bucks at Clark rubber, and was like honecomb - light as, well, a titanium muffler (!).

Then i had it lined by a trimmer.

At the very rear of the well, there's ample room for a quality air pump, and a bottle (can) of spare tyre. Wrap all securely in a towel or something.

that's kinda between the tail lights, and will be behind the upholsterers new carpet.

I made a plywood "shelf" to go around the well and to give the upholsterer something to shape to.

Hope this helps.

BTW - the "stuff" is very common - Even servos will have something.

3.9 gears and the Strup headers/test pipes/Injen short ram intake (did it all at once).
next in line to be added is the Injen SES, Unorthodox pulleys, JWT flywheel and Kinetix SSV.
