Re: A possible mottah :)

Hmm I wonder was my mention of a bike,subconcious to puttin a bike tyre on the spacesaver

Anyway here s a few spot the difference pics and wheel and tyre.
If the cars were the same colour ,you could merge em together for a 350z effect ,but 2 is probly bettern 1 for now !.

Wheels I like the tt 17's,not the most common version.. n theyll do
There is about 1 foot in length between the 2 cars so I dunno if a TT could "hold" 20 in in appearance,besides the ins on it seems a wee bit more fussy about wheel mods.
Ill see about 18 in audi's maybe when the 17/45 rubber wears..
Bike tyre is bridgestone and load rating is low..but with a high pressure and most of that banking tread being compressed a bit,I feel itll be ok , If I should ever need it.btw the car wasnt/isnt in the same pos state as the ss wheel and its shredded original tyre!
I havent had a full puncture on the meg in 3 years..a slow one yes.
Now to source some haldex oil and filter

Incidentally the car is ideal for mr the motorist who goes along maybe just speedin up to 60 on a long straight stretch just where youd planned to pass,n then droppin right down to 50 or below as soon as the road curves a little .It has better blip passing and less long term planning needed.
