    The wheel fitment thread

    I decided to start this thread for people who are looking to mod their Micras, specifically the wheel/tire route. I know I will definitely be doing so once the car comes out.

    Perhaps the first Micra on modified wheels in North America is this press release car seen at the Toronto release, on 18x7 +42 4x100 OZ Superturismo GT in Grigio Corsa. Tires are 205/40/18. I am surprised at how perfect the fitment is, but do note the car is lowered on something, probably springs I assume. That particular wheel spec installed on the Micra below is also a very rare and unpopular size, and is very difficult to find anywhere outside of Europe. I have contacted both Tire Rack and Vivid Racing to see if it would be possible to order this particular size in, given that they carry a variety of other sizes of the Superturismo.

    God that's beautiful. I wonder if lowering springs from other market micras are direct swap. I definitely want to play with suspension as I plan to autocross mine.

    Reading DTC codes without a scan tool check engine light.

    Is it possible to decode Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) without using a scan tool when the check engine light is not illuminated? If so, what alternative methods or techniques can be employed to retrieve these codes?

    Suspension bits for the Versa Note & sedan may be interchangeable with the Micra, given the shared platform & drivetrain.

    Also: the current K13 March/Micra has been available in other countries for 4 years now, so there are probably options available from overseas. (Spendy shipping though.)

    Tire Rack returned my email. OZ Superturismo GT in Grigio Corsa 18x7 +42 4x100 cost $299 each, so $1200 for a set.

    The tires on the press Micra are Pilot Supersports.

    205/40/18 is not a very popular tire size and all I can find are max performance and ultra high performance summer tires that cost at least $150 each, so with that setup on the press Micra we're looking at at least $1800 for the wheel/tire package, before we find out what it's lowered on.

    Just out of curiosity, what would you personally consider a reasonable amount to spend on wheels/tires/drop?

    Given that wheels generally do not lose their value over time unless damaged, especially higher end wheels, and a good set of summer tires hold their value as well if they still have lots of life, I'd be willing to spend around $1500 in total for wheels and tires.

    Of course there's always rep wheels that cost a fraction of what genuine wheels cost, so that's also an option.
