    Hoping to clock 1500-2000kms before I really start pushing the little guy.

    The stock suspension is very firm, which I prefer. Road noise is pretty minimal at highway speeds IMO. I've also noticed the sound system is substantially quieter outside of the vehicle than all of my other vehicles with music at similar volume levels.

    I wouldn't say sketchy but I'd just like some wider wheels for peace of mind if I was planning on doing much highway driving. The thought of hitting some rough patches or water spots doing 110km/h+ on those fisher-price wheels makes me uncomfortable lol.

    I don't like the thought of the weakest link on a vehicle being its only connection to the world...

    You could always get some 13's from the 80's Micra and drive those at 130. Ha
