Juke Nismo space saver wheel and jack kit for sale

Lost at the back of the garage this is in the way now, so here is a space saver wheel/tyre and jack from a 2013 Juke Nismo. Note that this is for a Juke with 18-inch wheels. It is marked T135/90 R16. It isn't Nismo-specific, should be the same one as on other Jukes on 18's. It has never been driven ...

Tyre wear

Swapped front to back, and all four had reached 3mm at 10704 miles. Swapped again late 2014 to use the last 1mm or so, all four tyres had reached the wear markers whe...

I also know that the trip computer on...

Thoughts On Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tyres, 18 inch

Some advice is to use the best tyres on the back because under braking there is less weight on the back so less grip. The assumption is that the back overtaking you is more upsetting than the front ploughing on.Other advice is that the front tyres clear the water so having the deepest tread there is...

Juke Nismo is going...

I've thoroughly enjoyed the car, apart from one thing, so it is going.That one thing is some sort of mismatch between the driver's seat shape and me. The support it gives isn't quite in the right place, so urban potholed roads and lots of use of the clutch cause pain. I've tried all sorts of things ...
