      I can't say anything.... I put '04 Z rims on my '88. Factory Z31 rims are so..... '80's

      not legal stuff:
      '88 300ZX 2+2-- Under the knife
      '86 3000ZX 2+2-- the knife victim
      '19 Leaf SV-- Because I hate burning money
      '19 NV passenger-- Because my wife likes burning money

        I sort of felt sad the day I took my old stock 15" rims off. I had them re-powder coated years ago and kept them in great shape. If I had 5 hole rims I would have tried to find a set of 16" Anniversary Edition ones to put on, but the most frustrating part of getting the Non-Turbo was the stupid 4 hole rims. Like how much did they save on those 4 extra lugs? Anyhow, I wasn't a big fan of the rims they moved to in 86'..I have Enkie's 16" that look good, forgot what the old ones look like now.

          And the reason I finally moved on was simple, only HR rated non-performance tires available in 15" size 3 years ago when I needed new tires.
