Silvia. 180SX. Which is the better design from the Nissan draft table? Before you post, no, we’re not talking about a Sil-Eighty or the USDM 240SX sedan/hatch designs. We’re comparing only the pure breeds:
Which S13 would you get, Silvia or 180SX?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “Do you prefer stock or aftermarket wheels?”
Last week, it seems there is some appreciation for a good set of original wheels. That said, the aftermarket scene, especially the vintage era rims made for JNCs, hold most of our audience captive. Nigel comes out of the gate with what nearly all of us think of when we imagine a good looking JNC with a nice pair of shoes, to take Speedie‘s analogy, with Wats.
Jim Simspson reminds us that, unlike bolt-on fender flares cavernous enough to house a small village, wheels can be swapped out without damaging a car. So why not experiment?
All that said, when thinking of a good wheel, stock or aftermarket, we cannot ignore the empty pit in our wallet left from the latest trip to the repair shop to keep our JNC on the streets. For many of us, new wheels would nearly double the value of the car. Han Zhang put it simply:
I keep them (wheels) stock because any worthwhile aftermarkets would cost more than my JNC.
Omedetou! Your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop.
