Datsun got soul

PhotobucketK, I'm going to send you over to Motor Mavens for the full report HERE and owners comments about this car. I'll summarize...the owner is 20 years old, used Acura Integra coilovers because the 240Z coilovers didn't get him low enough and the wheels/tires are 15x11 rear with 225/50/15 and 15x10 front with 205/50/15. Them's some wide wheels! Enjoy these pics by Antonio Alvendia from Speedhunters/Motor Mavens fame. Build your cars with character and soul people! Its not just transportation people, its a mode of freedom!

Slap some 295-series tires on the rear and 245-series on the front, and I'll call that a serious machine. Right now, I'll call it a death-trap. Both are fun, but I'll only drive one of the two: stretch tires are dangerous.

Still, I love it otherwise. I vote l28et in there... maybe twin turbos?

Nice ride! I agree though, needs wider tires. That would suck if your tire came off the rim. Also any tow truck would probably damage your car.

While I do believe that the amount of stretch would seem to be truely dangerous - much wider tires would ruin the look of the car entirely.

With wider tires the car would have to be significantly higher and the flares would need to be wider as well.

"Stretching" or "pinching" a tire up to about an inch-and-a-half past the manufacturer's specs is not dangerous. Much more than that and you are taking your life into your own hands - literally!
