    OK so I've ordered some nice fat semi slick Yoko Advans to fill the gap a bit. Because I found this pic on a Thai site this car is on 15s too and is about as low as mine and I really like the look so I've copied lol!Name:  13051486_280278575637358_3742354450868106173_n.jpg

    Hi guys - just joined up here to ask a quick question:

    I bought a set of OEM 2015 Versa Note mags/tires with the intention of putting it on my son's '09 Versa. Unfortunately, they won't fit as it appears Nissan changed from 4x114.3 to 4x100 from 2013 onwards. Anyone know if these will fit Micras?

    Edit - Posted it in the for sale forum.

    Should fit it's a while since I bought my wheels but I'm sure the pcd is 4x100. Someone will probably confirm this.

    The green micra above has 205/50r15 witch has me wondering. I have the stock suspension and stock 15 inch rims but I would like to get fatter tires to get that ''go kart'' feeling and look a little bit like the one above but understanding I have the stock suspension might be hard to nail. Any tire thread ideas?? how large can I go before it rubs?? I would like to keep using the stock 15 inch rims if possible. Any input would be appreciated. Best regards.

    Nao - it'll depend on the rim you use (its width specifically). The stock rim is 5.5 inches wide, if you're moving to a 205 rather than 185 you might consider a 6-6.5 inch wide rim, and could probably run as high as 225/50R15 with no rubbing (depending on offset, -30 should put you at neutral internal with ~22mm of external width gain). The issue with going to a much higher width tire using the stock rim is (if memory serves) '205' is the widest you should go on a 5.5" wide rim. If you do go with the 205 on the 5.5" rim, you'll have X amount of rubber on the road. If you ran a 6.5" wide rim with the same tire, you'd have X+0.4" on the road.

    For reference, I'm currently running 205/40R17's on an 8.5 inch wide rim with +15 offset (the rim is 13mm (half inch) closer on the inside, and sticks out 63mm (2.5 inches) externally) - and if you look inside the wheel wells, the front plastic has a step in it, it's not big, but during turns my tires just barely touch it. Not enough to do any damage, the plastic doesn't even really show scuffs, more so the dust and road stuff just looks like it's moved - I fixed this by tucking the wheel-well plastic inside the fender lip. That 1/16 fixed that "issue".

    Pictures would make this easier to explain I guess but I'm still building the car and have yet to make the how to's and such... they'll be coming soon

    I went 195/55 R15 with mine, it is lowered but you can see they do fill the arch quite well.

    The old tyres here for comparison which I think were 195/45 R15, so you can see just in that there is quite a difference. My wheels are 6.5" wide BTW.

    I like the white lettering and license plate adaptor 195/45 definitely looks too tiny, and is 7.7% smaller than stock, with my speedo it'd need to show 110 to be doing 100

    The license plate bracket was good until someone on my street did this yesterday

    Not good. I had someone park so close to me, posted in a thread here, I'm sure that would have happened also. Aggravating.
