your standard wheels for my SVA test as I think my car will fail with the tyres and alloys I have now. I'd be willing to leave a deposit while I'm getting the test done. Someone up in the North East would be good.
Thanks for all the info but my tyres are 235/45/ZR17's so I think I may have a problem when I go to the test on Monday. Don't know anyone with a ZX300 or 200, going to see some guy with a partowrn tyre business to see if he has any alloys that will fit for the day.
Aye, it says 235/45/ZR17's on them and they have the Jap circle with the wavey line through it. I was talking to the guy at the SVA centre and he said the Skylines are pretty much straight forward but problems occur with wrong size wheels & tyres that throw out the speed check and also that some exhaust pipes extend beyond the profile of the rear bumper. I would hate to reverse really quickly and stab some idiot in the eye as they were down on their knees looking at my exhaust pipes!!! Hope I don't have to shorten them with a hacksaw.
exhaust - well if it sticks out a long way it will be a problem - mostly depends on the tester, I had a friend whose Subaru failed becasue of a 10mm nut on the inside of his bumper where the foglights normally mount.
What I found when SAV'ing mine was for the emissions the CAT needed to be warm for it to pass.
Talking to the guy at the SVA centre after the car had failed due to thwe incorrect tyre size putting the speedo out. He says that a guy cam in with bald tyres last week and it had to be towed back home as they refused to allow it back on the road.
