Thanks guys, yea that's the new 527 16x8.25 0offset.
No engine or interior pix yet, I'm working on interior now that the exterior is decent. I'll update some pix soon I blacked out the chrome around the doors. Looks good!

Very nice and clean Z! I really like the stance as well. Good find!

I'm assuming you are running coilovers? What type? How bad was the wheel/tire clearnace (what size tires are you running)? Probably needed to roll the fenders, huh?

Hi Matt, I'm running revalved S13 Stance coilovers, I run 205/50/16 all around.
Yes when I mounted the 16x8.25 I had rubbing issues on the inner lip of the fender. As soon as I rolled the lip I had no issues. I slightly rub on the inner tire well when I hit a large dip on the highway at 60+ mph, but's it's like a split second and back to cruising.

The car and those shots are amazing. Proof that S30's can look mean without flares.

Looks pretty good and the wheels are nice too. Wished they made 17s and a little lower offset for my flares.

That's what I call a skillful auto repair dude! :D That car was really your work? It looks like it is only a few years in the road. :tu: Compared to a guy like you I would be considered as a newbie. When I was still doing those projects, I was also in houston that time, what I always did was search for the best houston auto repair shops and peek on how would they do repairs. I am really afraid on how to do it myself so I copy what they do. But from that point I also had a chance to earn more knowledge.
