Specs on the wheels? Looks like a 15x8 with a 4" backspace?

It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

They're Diamond Racing 15X8j-0

IIRC -0 offset is the same as 4" backspace. Tires are Falken 195/50/15.

I had to roll the rear fenders somewhat aggressively to clear...and over large bumps at speed they still rub when I'm alone. I'm 5'11" and 180lbs. With 2 people in the car the rubbing is a little more frequent...but not bad.

The front is another story altogether. The car has the Frankenstein Sentra/240SX big brake setup, which moved the front wheel outward about 3/8". I cut the fenders, and massaged the rear fender well to clear. Still needs a little more massaging.

Might be too late for this now, but switching to a 195/45-15 would probably cut that rubbing out. :thumbup:

I had the same problem on mine, but decided to just step down to smaller wheels. Right now looking at a 13x8 with a 185/60-13 or a 14x8 with a 195/45-14. Should eliminate any rubbing and allow me to go a lot lower. B)

Howdy,

 

This car is officially for sale...

 

I'll try to get an official post over in the 'for sale' section by this weekend.

 

Essentially, the car looks exactly the same, but now has Recaros and one of those fancy jdm center consoles with the clock in it (found it on ebay in Thailand). There is no carpet, accept over the tunnel.

 

Reason for sale: I have too many cars and I'd like to thin the herd a little bit. Also, car is filthy at the moment, and needs a good bath and cleanup (which I plan to do).

 

I have no idea what to ask for the car. Best thing to do is to text with questions and/or offers.

No, not for sale. IF it was for sale, you are looking at $5,000 and then some...

I think it got sold back then. I was in Hawaii when it went on the market. And by the time I was back in town I thought he had sold it.

He remove the 15" wheels and tires because "they rubbed on every corner of the car!" Running 13X7 Libre's

I followed him from Wilsonville to Canby, and the car smokes a little, which for it's age and sitting for sometime is not bad.

Good to see it out and about!

Okay folks, I received a phone call today, from the current owner, car is same as pictured above, wheels/tires sound like they have changed again- to what I don't know for sure.

He offered it to me, and I am strongly  thinking about buying it and turn around and sell it. It's a very original coupe, with Klotz brake kit on the front, flares to fit lager wheels and tires.

What do y'all think?? I have very good rubber factory floor mats, to replace missing ones! He knows I am flipping the car- he does want to deal with selling the car.

What you really need to consider is the fact that most US 1200 owners are on this site, and have at lest one if not two(we are not counting you, it would not be fair) and can't afford a second or third.

 

 

Well, there is Duncan, Tanker, and Jrock. :thumbup:
