FAVORITE MODIFICATION

"The Blitz Type-03 were one of my favorite wheels back in the late '90s. I actually had one of the first sets in the U.S. on my 300ZX! The Type-03 is such an iconic '90s era specific wheel meant for a '90s JDM car. They were discontinued in the early-2000s and it took me years to find a perfect set. Once I found a set of 17s, I wanted to make the wheel have the same personality as the Phoenix7, updated for the new millennia. My wheel builder "ChamorrowBoy86" gave it an updated 2020 flare enlarging them to an 18-inch with step lips, gunmetal faces, black gold center caps, and gold hardware."
