I like the Type O better. What brand and how much? Love the deep lip!

Those wheels are called Amistad. They are 2-piece customized wheels, made in Japan with more than 15 offsets and lip size can go up to 6"


My friend wants to get 19" maximum, but I want her to get 20" because she will have a special discount any way & tires for 19" and 20" are almost the same. I think 1 inch does make difference


What do you guys think, 19" or 20"


Since the price on Type O and Type C is so close, so which one you will pick? :goodtimes:

I guess it depends on what the purpose of the car would be for her. For show and cruising, I guess 20" would be the bling. But for practical purposes, I would go no bigger than 19's for style and comfort. I think your friend would be happier with the 19's. I still like the second set (Type O).

Is there a distributor here in the States, or will they be shipped from Japan? I've seen people order wheels direct from Japan; it's not difficult.

this is just my opinion, but anything over 19 on a sports car is a waste. but the type o look alot better

I like the second one. I have 19's on mine and they ride great. I have shown her once...when I'm ready to race I'll change to my stock 17's.
Get the 19's she'll enjoy the ride better. Make sure you wrap them in great rubber. I have Yokohama AVS Sports. From one female Z owner to another tell her to get the best; the Z is worth it!

I asked her to get 20" because I wanna see the 20" on Z, but since every member suggested 19", I guess we will go for 19" Type C


sorry guys the 1st pic is Type O and 2nd pic is Type C, my bad


Amistad US distributor, yes, in CA. She will attend some car shows next year in exchange for the sponsorship discount which is even lower than Japan retail.

Well, now tire question. I've seen Yokohama AVS in the post, which tire do you guys suggest??? My friend has the used Michellin tire, is that good for Z? I think Nitto and Yokohama runs about the same price, which is better? How about Pirelli and Dunlop?

I don't think you can go wrong with any of those. If she's doing shows with the Z, then it doesn't really matter except for price. Besides, those tire companies are all in bed with each other and probably share tire manufacturing plants.
