    TireRack has some nice 17" on sale. I'm debating getting these as price of the rubber change each time will be much higher. I can keep the 15" for winter. They don't have the Micra to show what they look like on the car, so I chose the Versa Note S to give me an idea.

    I really like the look of those. VW GTI had a similar wheel a few years ago.

    They were nice on that car indeed. If I can plan a trip to the states, I think I may pick them up. I shopped around the price of the rubber, and it's much cheaper in the states, it's crazy. I can get the wheels and tires for the same price as the tires here. )

    I've heard that from several people about tire prices. Never done it myself and I'm ~25 minutes from the bridge.

    Don't forget to do the exchange rate math!

    What site did you use / how did you get the Micra and wheels together to preview the look?

    Photoshop, or GIMP?

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

    It's sad that TireRack ran out of them, I was thinking about going for the next long week-end. The O.Z that this showroom model has on post #1 are too big. Not enough rubber for the roads here, I'd dent them in a less than a week.

    Hey bro, I think if you do the math you will find that the 205/40/18 on the show car have a fair bit of side wall height to protect rims...what size 17'' were you thinking of getting? It is easy for the eye to be fooled when comparing different rim/tire sizes.

    The O.Z Grandtourismo GT 17" Dunlop 205/45R17.

    Not huge difference, but 10.25mm of rubber extra!
