Z32 brakes

I was wondering what the minimum wheel size is that you can run on these was? I would like to put on some 15 inch axis oldskool's on the car they dont make a bigger size.

I don't think you need Z32 brakes if your looking into getting Axis OG Wheels.
And Im pretty sure the smallest size that would work is 16-17".
Stock Z32 wheels are 17"

I believe the stock 7 spokes can work if you get the right ones without the ridges on the rear, so you might be able to clear with 15's, however, the one thing you will have to look at is spoke design to see if the caliper will clear the wheel.

it's just an Idea I just bought the car as a project or money pit It'll be one of the two. I would assume I would need spacers Im mainly looking to see that the caliper will fit in the wheel it self.

Like you said spacers will probably be needed for the calipers to clear the spokes...you can make em fit though.

I was looking into the same thing

I was thinking about some z32 brakes. are the pictures shown of the stock steelies? or are they of stock se or z32 rims? i was told that the best size is a 17"x7 with a 25 offset. can any one else give me some preferred rim sizes for the z32 calipers?

on a 240sx z32 calipers are useless if you dont have the right size tire to back it up most of you guys like stretched tired here but with that they lock up real easy and are basicly useless. big brakes mean nothing if you dont have the grip to stop and thats a fact
