Hi,

Just fitted some 16in Rota Slipstream wheels to my black Soul echo with Falken ZE912s on and it has certainly improved the ride. Fitted white so it still looks good.


My OEM white 18in wheels fitted with Nexens are up for grabs, only done 100miles if someone wants to make me an offer.

did the road noise improve with the Falken Tyres?...... or did you have not enough time with the Nexens to make a comparison.

I still amquite happy with the Hankooks on the 18" wheel though I would love to be able to compare a smaller wheel for noise and ride quality.

Yes the road noise has definitely improved and no clattering over minor bumps. Now the



steering doesn`t try to self centre when you dont` want it to and the car seems nippier, whether that is the weight of the new wheels I am not sure. Shouldn`t say too much or no-one will buy the old ones


Will post a picture when I get a minute.

old git, might be worth keeping the old wheels, incase of resale later, some people like to have the original

No, I got the white, as the car is black with white trim and matches the "go faster" stripes

The best market for the wheels would be the USA.... they had the white ones on their Denim model and Tiger models.... but the postage weight would be prohibitive. Mind you - they would look fab on a clear white soul 1 or 2 too.

Ticking over mate. Suzuki only back at dealers for a service, good little 50 mpg runabout BUT a wave of nostalgia sweeps over me every time I see a Soul. Lots more of them about now, I wouldn`t rule out getting another one or even a Rio.
Weather men say a cold spell is due, try to avoid slipping into any more `wooly jumpers`.

Cheers Ian.
