It's been a while, but we finally mounted some tires on our new VTO Retro-4 rims and were able to mount the wheels on the our Datsun 240z.
The rims are the VTO Retro-4 15x7 zero offset.
The tires are the Falken 912 225/50-15.
The lugs are not what came with the rims. We have racing studs that are longer than stock and had to use open lugs.
We drove the car around town a bit without problems and then a full weekend at Willow Springs Raceway without any issues. There was some concern that this rim/tire combination might rub or otherwise not fit right. We had no issues of any kind.
The car is a 1973 Datsun 240z that is mostly stock. (well, sort of...) The things we changed that might effect wheel rub or fitment are as such:
Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings all around.
Tokico Lowering Springs all around. This lowers the car one or two inches and stiffens the ride a bit. These are street class springs.
260z swaybars, front and rear. The front swaybars are identical, the 240z came without a rear bar.
The Retro-4 wheels are kind of heavy for racing purposes. They weigh in at 18 pounds each. I was hoping for 14 or 15 pounds.
They did perform well on the track though. We lowered our laps times by about 3 seconds since the last time at this same track. We used the same tire, brand, style and size as our last event for comparative purposes. No, these wheels did lower our track time. LOL We lightened the car by 130 pounds, added a LSD (limited slip differential) and added an adjustable proportional valve sense our last event.
The wheels look good on the car and I'm happy with them.
