Unfortunately these are nearly impossible to come by. I ended up getting Jongbloed wheels for my car to get the zero offset. I do have a set of steel wheels for rains that you can get easily but they're very heavy.

That’s too bad. What do the Jongbloed wheels weigh?

I think the lightest steel wheel I’ve seen comes in at 16LB.

I've got a pile of Spin Werkes / Circle racing 82 Series wheels for my 1st gen. unfortunately for you, I'm not ready to part with them.

Does anyone know if they are still available somewhere? It seems to me they're no longer sold at major distributors, but there are a few websites out there that still show them. (Maybe they're just old websites?)

I also saw a couple tuner forums mention Bisimoto in california used to sell them as well. ??

I can’t find them anywhere now a days. It’s too bad because that’s what I’ve been hoping to source..hint hint.

Let me know if 4 of those are taking up too much space in your life.

Haha.. I bought the car with 3 sets included, and then found a deal on a couple more sets from Tom Thrash's estate. At this point, they're all being used.. rain tires, 'good slicks', 'backup slicks', and 'well these still hold air and will get me through a weekend'. unfortuantely, I've needed 3 sets on multiple occasions so I'm not quite ready to part with any.

You might check Ebay, Craigs list and local salvage yards for early 4 bolt Datsun Z wheels. They were 6.5 or 7" wide with 4 on 4.5 and 3" and 4" back spacing. Not the lightest alum. wheels I've bought but very strong.

Also the early 80s Toyota Celica/ Supra cars all had similar size wheels. they're quite popular with the drift crowd since they work on the 4-lug 240SX (and others), and have wider offsets than the factory wheels.

The jongbloed wheels are 9.5 lbs but quite expensive. Like close to $500 apiece shipped.

Spinwerks went out of business years ago. Used to run them on these and the Miata's. Unfortunately they didn't run a good business and ended where that kind of business ends up.
