Alloy wheels

You can usually find 160SR 16" wheels on ebay but they are always quite expensive. When I wanted a matching spare for my K12 it cost me £85, with a worn budget tyre fitted, some kerb rash, and I had to drive to Birmingham to pick it up (about 150 mile round trip!
Edit:- THIS set, at £150 are a massive bargain!!
 
It's surprising how few alloys are around for the micra, it's a common car, and other nissans must fit, so why are they so difficult to find.

I think it's the 4 stud pattern on a smaller hub that they just don't really design for. It's hard to fit detailed patterns into a smaller space and still have it look good.

Most alloys seem to be for bigger cars with bigger wheels, they made a lot more variety of alloys for the classic mini though although that came with a set of alloys as standard, where as most micra trim levels came with steelies at standards.

I'm one of the few who actually likes steelies on a car, I'd rather not be able to see the brakes and calipers. I find it strange too how cars came with colour coded bumpers but around the same time the wheels stayed white/grey

Try looking for Renault Clio 172 or 182 wheels, they should fit with no modification (The Clio III is built on the same platform .......)
