Thinking about trying some different wheels and am considering the above (seen different variations in pictures etc so not that fussed whether black or dark grey etc so long as its the Spec V style (with 'silver alloy' rim)). Seem to be quite difficult to find (seen some in USA as fitted to their Black Editions) but ideally looking for a complete set in the UK to save on shipping fees and VAT/Customs duties. Thanks.

The states is the easiest place to pick them up, if you can find a company to ship at reasonable money you can offset it against the wheels as there much cheaper there.

They do come up here for sale but not often, they tend to be like or hate design.

Ive got a set of tsw Nurburgring for sale with tyres and sensors in, as I’ve just bought some TE37 Ultras.

thanks

Worth remenbering the Nissan Track Edition / Nismo wheels have different offsets which is why those cars have wider front wings, and why Nissan stopped offering them as an option on the Premium/Recaro/Prestige models.

Thanks both, some useful info. I had previously read (but forgotten) about the different offset, so good reminder and definitely something for me to check (I've got a CBA).

There not track edition wheels or nismo, there track pack wheels and as far as I am aware there straight bolt on with no need to check anything with regards to std fitment.

good luck

I've recently wondered about that. I know they were originally offered as an option but the offset difference is what stopped Nissan offering them as an option. And now, with the different stud sizes between the base and TE/Nismo models, I wonder if the Track Pack wheels are the same as the TE/Nismo wheels in terms of the hole sizes for the studs.... Fascinating stuff...

I think the track pack wheel is based on being lighter than the regular dba rim. The wheel studs are basic std fitment as I've looked at my 2012 track pack.

I agree with that. However the latest specs for TE and Nismo says the hubs and studs are different (even Litchfield spec'd that in their TE advert). Its only 1mm, but would at least make a difference in wheel nut sizes, presumably including the locking nuts...

Looks like I need to be looking for either original Spec V wheels (probably going to be like gold dust), or the CBA Clubsport wheels/US CBA black edition wheels. Later wheels probably going to be an issue with hubs. I'll be sure to check offsets (y)

Thanks Mookistar, I'll give them a call tomorrow (y) (I think the EBA TE wheels might not fit on my CBA hubs, from previous posts/advice, but I'll see what Litchfields say)

Track pack wheels are ok, track edition wheels have a different pcd.

Still looking. Have drawn a blank so far. Waiting to hear back if they can be ordered from Japan direct.

If you're on facebook go to the GTR selling from the States, usually a set on there.
