I got a good quote for 30mm suspension lowering at £270 which is fab. So 3 weeks to order and it will be fitted! Project is coming along well!
Well THESE are the people that I used to get the wheels on my Saab refurbished, they do some awesome special colours, I think that the blue/anthracite variation in their gallery would look the dogs on your carI'm looking for ideas on the wheel colour, I'm not sure about black anymore if it work with all that blue, was toying with blue as the flaps are, but just not sure. I just don't want to get it all right, for the wheels to let it down. Any ideas be helpful on that.
Might be possible to get someone local to do the wheels in anthracite and the raised part of the spokes in metallic blue? Sadly the OEM SR wheels have no real defined outside rim to pick out (and they are the worst wheels that I've ever had on a car for catching on a kerb)I would love that but I'm in Edinburgh, so too far for me
If I was in a financial position to replace the standard 16" alloys on my Micra Callum, I would definitely go for something a bit wider, giving a wider front & rear track and a dished centre, like the ones in this picture.....Some on I know that's into cars, suggested replacing the alloys as they don't look right now. They look ok on the car as standard. Any advice on that?
Going to be pricey, especially as they will require a complete set of new tyres (NOT budget ones I hope! ), which is why my choice was based on 7J x 16" replacements, which my current, nearly new, all season Vredestein tyres would fit .Also 17" wheels are going to need 40 profile tyres to keep the rolling radius similar and they will make the ride VERY harsh!That car is very nice indeed, but not sure on those wheels. The garage I use recommended these and are going to get me a price.
They are 17" A guy at work will have first refusal on my originals if I go for these. It would need to be someone fairly local that takes my originals. I'll keep you all posted as this is the last a final mod, for some time, so I can recover from the ££££ and just enjoy the car.
Yo Callum!The car as it is now. Not long till I get the weels fitted and finally finish the car and can get it out to enjoy!
I see three K12's in that picture Callum and none of them appears to be yours?
