Qashqai wheels fitted

I had my 19" apollo alloys vandelised tyres slashed and rims damaged cost me a fortune to get repaired and re tyred, tyres were £216 each!!!!

so after checking wheel dims etc i bought a set of 4 17" qashqai alloys with tyres for £175 taken from a 2013 model from ebay.

i have fitted them to my kadjar and what a difference to the ride comfort compared to the 19" i cannot notice any control difference to the handeling at all.

the only issue is that they do not have any TMPS sensors fitted so after looking on the web i can get 4 sensors for £125 they are 407004CB0A TYRE PRESSURE SENSOR PART NUMBER.

another option would be to buy a TMPS emulator to turn the tyre warning light off other than taken the car to a renault dealer who can turn this off using a Clip device .

i have attached photos of the wheels fitted as you can see they have centre caps with the renault badge, i used the original nissan caps as they are 55mm as oposed to the renault which are 60mm.

all i did was buy some renault caps from ebay pressed out the badge and stuck them on the nissan caps.

Check the price for the pressure sensors again. I bought a second set in september from our local dealer. All of them together (4) costed 35 euro or something like that.

I don't think a TPM emulator would be legal in the UK , instant MOT failure 

Correct, get some sensors and as above they are available cheaper.

Like what you say about comfort, most are prepared to lose out on that for the sake of fashion and won't even admit the difference. Having tried both I know you are right.

 

What did they do to the wheels??. Just seems strange, it's would be far easier to damage paintwork and body work and cause more expense at the same time. Remind me not to park up round your way.

they used a hammer of some sort and battered the rims also scratched both sides of the car and smashed the passenger window then the alarm went off this was about 4.25 am police seem to think is was a targeted attack and for the life of me i cannot think who would have done it.

got a few feelers out so hopefully time will tell somebody could be going for a swim with concrete boots on????

Careful.

To be honest I thought when I read this that it must have been personal. Vandals don't carry lump hammers . They used to use Nitromors until it was banned by EU, might have been cheaper to fix that in your case. Best left "off air" incase it develops.;)
