I bought some Z wheels at a junk yard and hope I can not only describe them properly but that somebody will recognize them and tell what year they came from. They are aluminum, 14", 4 hole, 6 spokes with a 1 inch wide groove through the middle of each spoke. They have a part number stamped on them of 40300 P8101. Any Ideas?

I used to auto cross with those rims with a 225/60 series tire on them. They looked good too. I used them for 2 years with no problems.

Rim width ZR8ED?

ZR8ED, how wide are those rims? If they are only standard 6 inchers, are your sidewalls stiff enough with a 225/60? Or are those actually 7"? I have a set of the 15x6 4 spoke style like 240Z Turbo has. I had planned on using my 14x7's with 225/60 to keep the larger footprint and the stiffer sidewall at the same time. But the 15x6's make it easier to install larger brakes. Pros or Cons? Has anyone had problems or drawbacks with either setup?

<b>RE: Rim width ZR8ED?</b>

The stock rims are 14x6. I autocrossed with that combo for a couple of years and I kept an eye on tire roll over and I had none. I ran 38-40lbs when racing and my tire wear was fairly even (my car is dropped 4") You would have now problems running the 15x6 rim unless you want to compete nationally in which case depending on your racing class a 15x7 or 8 with a 225/50/15 would be a better bet.
Is that the info you needed?
