Performance is at the heart of the iconic ‘Z’ car, now in its sixth generation. It’s hard to believe that the first Z car, the Datsun 240Z, dates back further than the eighties; even further back than the seventies. It made its debut in 1969! The 2013 370Z is the latest incarnation of this phenomenal series of sports cars. Owners of more recent vintage Z cars even have a limited slip differential in certain configurations for added performance,
If you’re lucky enough to have a Z car of any generation, you own a sports car that is enhanced more by custom wheels than most. If you have a recent Z car, you’ve got 18 inch wheels standard and 19 inch wheels included in the sports package. Add some custom wheels to match the look to the performance. The 3.6 L V-6 puts out 332hp; 350 hp if you’re lucky enough to have the NISMO version.
Matte black wheels on a black Z car look really good. So do the shinier powder coated black rims. In recent years, the lines of the ‘Z’ provide a bit of a Porsche-like look, especially if you’ve added a rear spoiler. This means that one can really add to the look with the right custom Nissan 350Z rims.
On the other hand, perhaps you’re an enthusiast with a classic silver Nissan Z car with HID headlights. Pick up the bright, cool light of the headlights with polished chrome rims. The large Red calipers that come with the Sports Package will contrast well with either bright polished chrome or matte black rims.
With your Black, Red, or Blue ‘Z’, five black spokes radiating out to contrasting chrome rims look dynamic. The effect is great with pewter and darker gray Zs too. Try red spokes with a chrome lip for an even more unique look. An owner of a white 350Z may want to consider the dramatic contrast with a completely black tire/rim package.
The simple, rounded, aerodynamic lines of today’s Z cars make more intricate, multi-spoked designs an interesting option. The exterior is simple enough to be a proper backdrop to these more elaborate wheels.
