    Tyre tread pattern vs width

    next time you're near it see what's stamped on them maybe? (could be hard or easy to find) might be letter + Number combo will tell you for example is pretty easy to see (13x6) sometimes you just have the 6J number ( the letters refer to the profile or type of rim according to google

    I might have missed it but what width are your rims?

    Tyre tread pattern vs width

    I don't think you'll notice 10mm on either side of a tire (165>185) & common sense would go there, even just for the extra grip & safety is why I run 185's on my Avenger, yep does affect speedo, more than you realise & becomes evident with a GPS so yeah : keen to follow this discussion & where it goes too! the 77$ 13" Whitewalls in the petrolhead magazine look tempting too!

    Not much really happening here Just Daily driving 'Red' and today was Rally car Day @ Tui Brewery So got this off the Lawn : She started right up & had to hunt for a set of nuts to bolt the steelies back on, the tires took some encouragement to hold air & semi-fixed the strobe lights (one wasn't responding) 1st to register (of the 3 cars that turned up) and won "Most Original" Rally car of the day, couple of Doz of the Amber Fluid & a certificate #winning? yeah was lowering the tone a tad & here's the other beauties that turned up

    re-registering a vehicle

    not having a go at Cam here but this twigged by berries and is relevant to this thread and NZ motoring in general Fair-Go have covered it a few times & the point is "Registration does not imply ownership" odd aye!?!? as per previous page & suggestions you need receipts for a car & the rego owner (as Cam says) is pretty irrelevant & it's because of this point Kiwi's do generally use the Rego system as "ownership papers" because its the best we got & is fairly logical to use it as such but yeah Rego =/= Owner they are simply the entity responsible for the Fee's for the right to drive on NZ's public roads, but are usually at the owners address /lingor

    Removing a broken axle - any tips?

    remove other side & poke it out with a skinny solid rod? Semi unlikely it'll be a hollow diff / through the Bearing s & guts but have heard of that method before on small 4's (like Escort & viva etc)
