yes i had them on order before it even happened, they are on the car already for some shredding. just went with some cooper zeons for now until i find some nice 18s for it and lace them with some toyo R888.

not familiar with cooper zeons but a quick google search tells me they are a form of semi all terrain???

I know you guys have different weather conditions to us here in oz but if this is the path you've gone down i'd be concerned...

ive put over 200,000km on these tires. there very average yes but in a 255 and with awd they grip just fine and perform quite well on dirty roads. like i stated ill have toyo r888s for pissing around on a different rim. i was driving my wifes stis rims on 225s on the gtr and i was doing just fine. driver can always adjust to whats underneathe him. imagine owning a 1000hp supra lol...

She is all cleaned up now and bugs worked out! What a great stock gtr hard to find great shape inside and out. Thinking if I should paint this one up with new weather stripping now and give her the love she deserves

Does it need new paint, the paint looks ok in the pictures? I'd always prefer OEM paint over a closed door respray, so unless you're stripping out the interior and giving that a lick as well then I would leave it. Too many Skylines with too many coats of paint on them. Obviously if the paint is rougher than the pictures show then that's different. 

 

Agree with new wheels. Engine covers need some love for sure. Otherwise looks like a great find, especially in the current GTR climate!

Yeah I agree with everything said for sure! I almost never bought the car because of the gtr logo placement. Was a dead give away it had been fixed in rear end. I found the body work rear left quarter was fixed prob got rear ended. The wheels are awful and yeah the paint and weather stripping are done. I dropped the car off for a glass out, doors and bumpers off paint job. Not a full restore but all I can afford right now with my black one just getting out of shop. I am going to put Rota p45r 18 inch on it, kakimoto race exhaust 3.5 inch, and some Coilovers as the thing sits crazy hi in the front! I don’t know if that’s just the stock suspension or what? You guys no better than me. Can really tell in the video how quiet a gtr really is with stock exhaust can’t even heat my wife down shift, and the video shows how awful it sits in the front. Car is not perfect but guys I paid 14 Canadian for it and it runs better than any gtr I’ve had! Pulled the pill and she has great pull at 1 bar we raced my wife’s stage 2 sti against it and the gtr was gone.
