From Official Japanese Z site


The new Fairlady Z uses newly developed tires with an elliptical contact patch. By increasing the contact length during steering, we have achieved both ride comfort and sound vibration performance while ensuring excellent grip. In addition to the 18-inch aluminum wheels, we also adopted high-rigidity Rays 19-inch aluminum forged wheels

From Motor Trend:

More Caster Enlarges the Front Tires' Contact Patches
Adding roughly 5 degrees of front caster angle strengthens the Z's sense of straight ahead, and increases the amount of extra caster trail—the distance between the point where a line passing through the upper and lower ball joints intersects the ground and the center of the contact patch. This has the effect of increasing the fore-aft length of the contact patch.
