Ive purchased a set of second hand ultralites. Two have decent yokohomas on them. I was planning to refurb them but i e read that some which have a big offset are impossible to get tyres onto. How can I tell

    Most aftermarket wheels have this issue.
    Its virtually impossible to fit the tyre in the conventional way without damaging the rim or destroying the tyre.
    The way around this is usually to flip the rim over so the tyre is fitted from the back of the rim rather than the front. Hope this helps and makes sense ?

    mount the wheels upside down. tyres will go on and off fairly easy that way. just done a set.

    I thought I had finished at Xmas but plans change and they could fit a problem and get some parts from SC at the same time.

can anyone show me a photo and give me the details of what is needed to fit the front lower stabiliser? I'm really struggling to find the correct things to fit it.

How can you tell if the front and rear donuts are worn, I'm not sure what to look for, they look ok could do with a clean.

    Crawl under the front and check the angle of the top suspension arm. If it's close to horizontal it's OK, if the wheel end is much higher then possibly they need to be replaced

    Sure their are more engines readily available. But how much taller is the engine than a micra k11.
