I have a lot of hobbies. Doing outdoors stuff is one of them as you may know but late 90s, early 2000s Japanese street inspired cars is another thing I really dig. It all started after watching the seemingly rare Japanese car tuning videos such as Hot Version and Video Option videos in my elementary/middle school days. Since then, I’ve always had a soft spot for aggressive body kits, big wheels, and crazy low cars that slide sideways. Here, in my opinion, are some examples that fit that bill.
Here’s my buddy’s Nissan 350z. For a lot of people, I bet the first thing they notice is how crazy this car looks. Chances are, people wonder how a car so low even survives the street of San Diego. Having a car that was not even close to how low his car is, I ask the same thing everytime we hang out. How does this car that is crazy low and has crazy sized wheels with even crazier offset even function? I don’t know but he manages to make it to school, work, and even track events with no problem. Crazy, right? Regardless if you like it or hate it, this car will definitely catch someone’s eye as it rolls down the street.
Although the FRS/BRZ chassis are newer, I think it has a lot of potential to replicate the late 1990s Japanese street car vibe. With the popularity of the wide body kits for this chassis such as the Rocket Bunny Kit, it is really refreshing to see some stock bodied FRS stroll through streets. This is definitely a good example of how the “right” set of wheels can boost any car’s exterior game. R33 GTR wheels with the “correct” stance on the FRS/BRZ is always a recipe of a simple neck breaker.
