Im looking for suggestions on rally wheels in 14x6 size or close to it. Im not a purest but do want something that looks right. Watanabe and panasports are great but hard to find in that size. I do like 280zx iron cross wheels.... I like SSR mk3, is a 3 piece a terrible choice for a strong wheel? Opinions? Pictures, ideas, thoughts, any help would be great!!! I'll be running 185 70 14 tires.

For Tacoma????? you need 6 bolt, Iron Cross are 4 bolt. Get anything that will support a wide tire.

 

If it's a secret Nissan car with 4 bolt and you like the Iron Cross rim, you don't need permission, get them!

Then your choice is clear.

 

I had to look up what a desert rally vehicle is. I don't see a 510 as being one but it looks wide tires for traction and riding on the surface and raised ride height for road clearance for off road.

The safari 510 argues with that perspective, but i guess it depends what you consider to be rally

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

Well you will want to lift the ride height to conform to form and function.

ARE Outlaws are pretty cheap, look like truck wheels, and you wouldn't be damaging anything vintage. Of you could get Bassett steels, with beadlock, if you want.

Iron Cross. It turns out they are really strong and rally-proven.
