Re: What's the going rate for a set of 40 or 44 Mikunis?

Mike was the one selling hte 44's with linkage and manifold for $1950. I had no idea they were that expensive so I was trying to get a sense if that is the new market price.

Re: Sticky, wide, 13" and 14" tires - Toyo Proxes R888

anyone got more time on this tire, specifically in the 15 inch version? I ran a few sets of 195 15's on my car. First the R888's and now the R888r's. I use them for autox which isn't what they are made for. The R888's heated up super slow the R888r's are much faster. Still not as fast as thread wea...

Re: What's the going rate for a set of 40 or 44 Mikunis?

Someone was selling a complete set with a manifold and linkage for two 44's for $1950. Seemed high for me which is what I'm trying to understand.

What's the going rate for a set of 40 or 44 Mikunis?

Not sure if this is the right section of the forum for this question but I was wondering what the market rate is for a set of 40 or 44 Mikunis. I'm running a L20B in my 510 and I've been thinking about getting a pair. My car is mostly driven on the street and I've been looking at adding this to my c...

Re: Need recommendations for 195/50/15 tires

I am currently running Yokohama A048's and love them. They are 60 treadwear. I have a set of Nankang AR-1's on the way to test out. They are about half the price of the Yokohama's so if they feel close to them in performance I think they will be my autox/trackday tire. Looks like they make it in a ...

Re: Need recommendations for 195/50/15 tires

Yea, I've used tire rack before. Car will be driven on the street mostly but I'd occasionally like to do some auto-x. I know that the most expensive tire isn't always the best so I wanted to learn from the experience of others.

Need recommendations for 195/50/15 tires

Looking at picking up a set of 15x6.5 wheels and looking at getting some 195/50/15 tires. I know I could go 205 for the tires but I want to make sure I give myself plenty of room to avoid hitting the strut when I upgrade to 280zx's in the future. Car is driven in New England in only the warm months ...

Re: 15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

I think he was saying that +25 wouldn't work on a 15x7 wheel, I was wondering if it would work on a 15x6.5 wheel.

Re: 15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

+15 offset is the absolute minimum off set I will use. With good tyres I can still feel SRA steer on the road. One of the best handling 510s in Oz is using 15x6.5x33P with 195/50x15 R1Rs. He is using R31 struts, with R32 GTST callipers. The R31 strut is the same as the 200SX S12. only difference in...

Re: 15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

What is the optimum position? Just trying to figure out what kind of offset I should be targeting if I'm looking at a 15x6.5 wheel.

15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

So I'm getting ready to purchase a new set of wheels for my 1970 510 four door. Car is currently driven on the street but I'd like to do some auto-x in the future. I'm running stock 510 struts now but I'd like to upgrade to 280zx coilovers in the near future. The two wheels I'm looking at are a pair...

Re: WTB: 15 inch Watanabe wheels or look like

Pretty sure those Konig's are a zero offset, would that work with 280zx coilovers without fucking with the fenders? What kind of spacers would I need? Most of the stuff I've seen with regards to spacers are for higher offset wheels.

Where in RI are you? I'm on a mission to get my 510 dialed before my first kid arrives in August.
