    Offset On These Old Z Wheels

    I saw these wheels at the junkyard and they resemble the wheels that I'm looking for which are rare japanese Tom's. These are off an old Nissan Z from the mid 80's I believe. They're 15x6. As for bolt pattern, I think 4x114.3. I was hoping 4x100.

    Do anyone know what offset these are?

    Bolt pattern is definitely 4x114.3.

    They look similar to the Z31 300ZX turbo rims, but those are not like any I've seen. I'd guess they aren't factory Z mags.

    As far as I know the Z31 mags looked like this


    Do they have Nissan cast into them anywhere?

    Take a tape measure next time you are there and you can easily work out the offset.

    I figured they were Maximas, not Z's. My friend told me Z and he showed me a picture with it on a Z. The Z version looks alike, I saw both at the junkyard and thought they were just different production year or something.

    On the backside, it does say Nissan.

    Are there any values in the Z31 wheels? I saw a nice blue Z in the junkyard there with them, all four with center caps. Didn't notice any damage on them. I had no idea why the owner threw it away. Nothing was wrong with it. T Top, too.

    I think your friend is RIGHT about them being Maxima rims... I had the EXACT same rims on my 1987 Nissan Maxima SE, now that I remember. Those are U11 87-88 Maxima rims. :wink:
