I think its about same for nissans, i can basically get altima wheels as long as they are 17s it would work on this car.If you have the time, keep an eye out on ebay and car-part.com for individual wheels and collect them separately; that's what I did with the XJ. Stockers can go cheap in the aftermarket, though maybe that's more a Jag thing because their offset and hub size make them less valuable.
That's an idea, thanks!As an alternative you might want to consider the Nokian WRG3 4-Seasons. I ran the previous WRG2's on a couple of my cars in the past and they were exceptional tires in or out of the snow. I live in a warm mountain valley where you can go from spring/fall conditions and dry roads at the valley bottom to 3 feet of snow and blizzard conditions up the mountains within the space of a half hour so I need tires that can handle both well and the Nokians do the job. And they appear to come in your stock sizes (225/45R18 and 245/45R18) http://www.nokiantires.com/all-weather-tires/nokian-wrg3/
Why do people selling cars on craigslist always seem to act like they don't want to sell the car? I was about ready to buy a car when i noticed a mistake on the title (made mistake when filling out the buyer section and crossed out a word he had started writing). I told him that that mistake means the title is invalid and he needs to get a new one. That was two weeks ago and i text he every so often to see if he got the title but he keeps dragging his ass. If the car wasn't just about exactly what i'm looking for, i would have moved on already but here i am.
Check your policy and state law, but generally no. However, modifications that are illegal in your state (such as a blower scoop blocking line of sight, which is illegal in some states) that could conceivably have contributed to the accident could result in not being covered for that accident (as well as criminal charges). Some policies are written such that modifications, even legal ones, that fail and cause an accident may result in denied claims.Stupid question... Do modifications need to be reported to your insurance company in the US? I always thought you were free to do whatever you wanted but they wouldn't cover anything you didn't tell them about.
That's not completely accurate, while you are correct that there is more braking down up front the actual split depends on how the car's weight is distributed. To me the problem is more aesthetic rather than performance, I'm sure w/e brakes are on the car are more than adequate to stop it but it just doesn't look right when there are massive 6pots up front and a dinky floaty in the back. It makes it look like someone who didn't have enough money for a full brake kit threw the big ones on the front. Also not stupid expensive cars can with fixed front and rear (STi for example) so no real reason for more expensive stuff not to.Most of a cars braking is handled up front. Like 70+% iirc. Floaters are more than good enough out back.
In mother Russia people always get in the front, it was weird to me to have to use the back in the US when I first came.I think it's perfectly normal to sit in the front of the taxi.
How is that a good thing?In Berlin, locals always get in the back because there's a strict "what I don't see I can't enforce" policy regarding seat belt use employed by most drivers, i.e., if you ride in the back, you don't have to buckle up.
