    The silver steelies look great!



    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.

    Yeah thanks
    They don't look bad, but I really wanted to pimp it out with some nice rims. The suspension is now easily adjustable, via the spring seats...so raising it up a bit would allow more clearance for what I want but I really like the height as is. (I may actually go a touch lower in the back still)

    You're OK with the tires on there for winter use?

    Higher in the back is better in the snow, trust me...I had a Mazda 626LX, great car, just a tad lower in the back than the front, and in deep snow, the snow would accumulate under the car until the wheels were up off the ground. Pain in the butt.

    Not worried. I know winter tires are great and all, but I've never bothered with them.

    Anyway. you could probably get a set of 4 decent ones for $500 and wouldn't have to mount and balance every season. i think that would actually be cheaper than not buying wheels!!
    this is the route I am going for, have been thinking these ones for Ramona.

    What's a largest size these car can use, 16, 17 or 18"? I was reading there was a model seen at a Toronto trade show where it displayed a 18" wheel set. Any suspension modification required for anything higher than 16" ?

    Tirerack has some nice models that would fit great with the Micra, IMHO.

    lbarouf: check post#1, this thread. (Moved your post to here, FYI.)

    Is that the Micra show car you're thinking of?
