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.

Not asking for much eh!

You shouldn't have much of a problem with the Jap wheels as long as they have the size and speed/load rating on them

ie 215/55/16 VR

they will also need to be marked, there are three that are acceptable

'E' Marking - unlikely for Jap tyres

JIS - this is a strage sort of symbol in a circle on the side of the tyre,

and another one that for the life of me I can't remember.

oh and they don't need to be legal for the SVA just correctly marked - so bald as a coot is okay! (not sure what a coot is though..........)

Bald coot, a name of the European coot (Fulica atra). Coots are water birds whose white head colouring give them the appearance of baldness.

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.

so long as the rolling radius is right then the speed test should also be no problem.

a tyre size checker can be found

Here

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. :eek:

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.
