Maybe this thread is dead but here goes anyway. Just decided to buy some new wheels on my Red 1990 300ZX, 2+2. I have owned the car for 20 years and it only has 42k miles on it so I am keeping the stock wheels for when I sell it. The car is all stock except for the TT spoiler on back and stereo. Always garaged and covered, awesome car. I want to change the look with either Black or Gunmetal wheels. The first post in this thread says my 16" stock wheels are 7.5" wide, when I google my wheels I find 7" wide. I assume you guys are correct and it is 7.5 wide? I do not want the new wheels to stick out of the top side of fender and would like to get 18" wheels. I would like staggered, I have been looking at 8" or 8.5" for front and 9" or 9.5" for rear. What is a range for offsets for these sizes for the front and rears. For what I am looking for, not a lot of options out there. Thanks for your help. I am getting a lot of different answers from the dealers as to what would and would not work. BH
They are 7.5 Remember that when it comes to the wheels sticking out of the fender the offset is what you need to be looking at while looking at the width.
What to do? go to tire size calculator (google) somewhere in there it should say offset calc, then add in the spec of your desired wheel, see how much it tells you it will stick out from stock, get a ruler, go outside, enjoy cool breeze, measure your @%^% , I mean wheels to fender.
