Micra on 17’s --- With pictures !!!

Here it is, one last mod before I sell the car.

Pictures are about 70kb, Sorry dial up users …..

You will have to tell me if the images don't work because they are on a public server.

No I don't think the front wheels will actually trun with the 17's on, and the back wheels will file a new wheel arch for me.

Neil, what the guy is saying is he did it just for a laugh to see what it looked like before he got rid of the car. It is highly amusing thats for sure, I have wondered what a K10 would look like with them on I have to admit :)

I drove the car through a hedge to see what would happen the other week. But I don’t think that counts as a mod.

Ok

If I had sold the car with out trying it, I would have probably regretted it. I have the wheels sitting in my shed waiting for a use. I remember a lot of people asking whether 17’ would fit. Now you know NO ………..

If you want to find something out the best way is to try it and see what happens.
Can we leave it there and carry on laughing at the pictures…..

just sat there eh :| hmm can i play with them please :D

i can ride with 17" and ive tried :p

not a very sensible thing to do though. but i managed it
some dubiousl scrapping when turnign corners like :p
but the backs were fine.
which suprsied me as i thought it would be the back i had issues with
but it isnt it was the inner front to the rear of the wheel it was catching on the inside. but then my arches are also flared and wide arches on :D

was contemplating using 17" for shows etc :D

but yeah not good for riding on :p

Yea I had the wheels on the Vauxhall, but I hit a pot hole and the front wheel sort of caved in on its self. So I only have the three wheels and they are too good to throw out, and who would buy three on e-bay ??

changed from 16's now to some very nice 15's, anyone know how to slightly raise the rear as i dont like the way the back is slightly lower than the front, i would cut the front springs slightly but i dont wanna angle grind the lips off the front too! i'd rather have the back slightly higher. any ideas?
