    The Black Mamba

    I have fitted my Black Mamba with 195*55*15 with Yokohama S type tyres and Neo wheels. Checkout and suggest more alterations.

    I also used 67.1 > 60.1 aluminum hub rings.
    My lowering the rear only with 205/50R16 has resulted in minor rub in deep dips on hwy 100km+
    And big speed bumps if too fast.
    But only the rear is lowered right now. So it leans back. It may sort itself when the front is done.
    Then ill balance the corners. The left rear is sitting slightly lower even tho both are adjusted the same.
    But the gas tank is on the left. So between me a full tank and stuff in the trunk it doesnt help.

    Hey guys,

    The CanadaWheels tech lab series is complete for anyone looking to educate themselves on wheel specs. Videos are about 1.5 to 3 minutes each so you could probably inform yourself pretty well in about half an hour if you watch them all.

    CanadaWheels Tech Lab (Understanding Specs and Ratings of wheels and tires)

    Any criticism and comments are welcomed. And don't forget to give us a shout at CanadaWheels.ca if you want a forum friend hookup

    Just in the process of purchasing a Caspian Sea SV. Hoping to get alloy rims for summer tires and put winters on the stock rims. Found some I like on CanadaWheels and did an MSPaint mockup. Haven't ordered the wheels yet.

    Its kinda meh. To me. The hub is huge 73mm ours is 60mm so you need a 60.1>73mm hub ring set. Get metal ones.
    There are worse rims to pick. If you like em, get em.

    Yup, it worked! Looks good.

    Welcome to the forum. Are you going manual or auto?

    Thanks ptbo, nice to see them for real on a Micra.

    Also mocked up the Ixion IX001 rims:

    Tough call. I also like the DAI Radials mentioned earlier in the thread. At least I have lots of options...

    Looks good, I'm planning on going up to 17 next summer, Fast has a number of 17" that will fit guaranteed, already test fitted on a Micra.

    If you really wanna jazz it up see if we can get the dark-chrome version of the Rival. That would look gorgeous with the Caspian Sea paint.

    edit: I say "we" cause I work for CanadaWheels. If anyone wants a contact you can always shoot an e-mail to sales@canadawheels.ca, I've got approval from my boss to help out all my forum homies.
