R34 Gt Stock Rear Wheel


Recommended Posts

hi everyone, as it happens ive cracked my rear left wheel on my 34 gt. 4door auto :( im looking for a new set of wheels and tyres now, but am wondering a few things. i plan to upgrade a heap of stuff now lol, so im gonna turbo it as well as brakes from a 34 gtt? was looking at maybe tein super street susp ?

ive got around 10 k budget to do it all wheels, turbo, suspension etc. any suggestions about what turbo or other parts to use eg r33 turbo, 34, new garett one?, dont wanna kill my engine lol but i read some of u guys running 15 psi ok , id be looking at stock boost levels to start and then go more later on ..

i love the nismo lmgt4 17 inch would these fit on my car? and if i get them seems like 4 k with tyres prolly lol , is 6 k enough for turbo conversion and all extras. any advice on who to carry this job out reccomendations? car is gonna be daily driver ,low down response and midrange is what im after. ive read on some of you guys doing this lately did most of the parts come new or source second hand?

on a side note if anyone knows where i can find 1 stock 34 gt wheel or anything the same size cheap lol

currently evertything stock beside splitfires, and exhaust.

thoughts also on my current car 4 door auto 34 + 10 grand in it eg turbo etc- vs a stock 34 gtt 2 door manual power wise and realiability

let the ideas flow! :P ty

Plenty of modded ones out there, unless you want to keep a 4 door? 6k is a very reasonable budget given labour and tuning etc... plus all the other various bits and pieces like custom lines, joins, any pipe welding, spark plugs...plan that budget well and you'll come through quite nicely.

An R33 turbo will be fine, R34 turbo would be better though the 33 will give bit better low down response. R34 turbo should handle bit more boost than an R33 turbo (as far as I'm aware), and is more likely going to be in better/newer condition.

I'd already gone so far with my 4 Door GT that it simply wasn't worth selling... that and I done suspension/brakes/wheels/tyres before deciding to turbocharge or stick with N/A performance (either way I was keeping the car). My four door attracts little-to-no unwanted attention, so that's always a bonus ;) there's a lot more out there for two door though which does make life easier when it comes to sourcing parts.

You'll also find that the R34 25GT Four Door has 280mm front and 265mm rear rotors, so if you keep it then I would suggest upgrading front AND rear brakes. Goran at Brakewest in Victoria made up my braided ADR approved lines to suit R34 4 door with R33 GTSt Calipers. The mechanic who done my brake upgrade was also able to fit the calipers by modifying the exisiting hubs/upgrights. The R33 GTSt hubs I got didn't fit to the R33 GTSt calipers which was rather strange... either way it should save you a few dollars by not having to buy hubs/uprights.

ye ideally id like to sell it but with the 1 buggered wheel now im not sure how i can do that.i cant seem to find 1 wheel to fit. i rang bob jane etc looking for a second hand wheel but no luck though im not sure on the offset i need or other dimensions for stock 34 gt n/a 4 door :s

if i could sell it for like 11 that would be sweet . i dont wanna buy a whole set of tyres and wheels then sell it type thing unless that cost is on top of the car.. drving around on this space saver is annoying lol

edit-just found a set of 4 these are the specs

They'd be 16s. The tyres will say R16 if they are, or R17 if they're 17" which I highly doubt. Why not get factory GTT wheels? I suspect they'd be easier to come by private sale? Have a look through the for sales or post a wanted to buy. If you go with 17s you'd want to make sure the tyre profile is suitable though so as to maintain the same, or close to the same rolling diameter to ensure a happy speedo. There should be a compliance sticker in the door jams which should have that info on it as well.

    • Why are you still trying to buy a crappy jap brand exhaust? go to your local exhaust shop and get a heaps better one made that will fit under the body 100x better
    • I’m very happy with my recent purchase of the Fuga but resisting the conversion to English of the navigation system. I’ve used Google translator to get around the system to date but I must have pressed something, now wondering if any Fuga owners (mine is 2011) know how to get out of this ‘dual’ or ‘panel’ screen mode. It’s driving me crazy 
    • hello! i am looking into upgrading the cams on my rb26 in the future, and wanted to start to understand what goes into this. i did a forum search and nothing obvious came up, so forgive me if this is already discussed somewhere. currently the engine is stock, save for (pertinent to this discussion): adjustable cam pulleys beefed up timing belt haltec ecu, not yet installed yet oil baffle plates i am will be converting to a single turbo set up, and that turbo's peak output is reached at somewhere between 5k and 5.5k rpm. this would be for street use. from what i understand, i should be looking at cams degreed at 272°. does that sound like it makes sense? there are step 1 and step 2 variants of these cams. i am not sure what the difference is in the to variants, so if anyone can chime in on this it would be great. i am assuming i would need to upgrade my valve springs as well. other than a tune, what would go into a camshaft upgrade? if i want to go with a v-cam upgrade much later, how does that affect i am doing now? i understand that it's totally possible that i completely missed something major here, but that's why i am posting this: i am here to learn. cheers!
    • I don't know whether you've made a decision yet or not. But left to me, I'll choose RAV4 over skyline everytime. Apart from the fact that RAV4 is a new product, skyline is an old product that it's almost out of vogue. It has some issues and require high maintenance. 
    • Ill see how this adaptor goes first. But thanks for the offer.
