They didn't stay on there that long to test unfortunately, I was just trying them to see how they looked at the time as I was toying with the idea of what to do with them I didn't have any more wheels to put on my 3 door to leave it sitting on that clear the front brakes, I didn't want to wreck the 3 doors actual wheels, my 3 door handles great on them though but I have done quite a bit to the handling on that They look equally as good on the 3 door but the only problem is they don't fill the back arches
The wheels are 17x7 et37
I think you will agree though that the actual wheels I will be using fill the arches better
So, a nice fella on my Sierra facebook group found this old advertisement for the Plaza model.
I have been looking for a list of the extra equipment for a while so this was quite a pleasent suprise!
Ill do a Quick translation for all you non Danish reading folk:
Sierra Plaza is no quite ordinary Sierra. That you will quickly notice. The new Plaza is a special study in design, technics and driving properties. With plenty of extra and luxery equipment as standard. Both inside and outside:
- Sunroof, which can both til and slide backwards. - The Tinted windows protects from blinding and sun. - Wide 185/65 R 14 tyres for optimal roadgrip. - Large side mirrors in the cars colour. - Stepless adjustment of instrument panel light gives quick readings under all conditions. - Sporty fullcover hubcaps. - Sideprotection panels and bumpers with red insert. - Tachometer. - Nice Barcelone fabrik interior. - Internally adjustable side mirrors in both sides. - 5 Speed gearbox. - grey paint under the sideprotection panels as a guard against stonechips.

So its been a while i can see. Well lots has happened, but most importantly, i now have a garage!
So the car is still shaking when driving 90 kmh or above, in my hunt for a good reason i had the propellor shaft sent for a refurb. forgot to take a picture of the shaft refurbed, so have a look at a dirty one:
This did not solve the issue, so i bid the bullet and sent it off to a mechanich, who had it checked, and he believes the tyres are oval and everything else looks fine. I find this a bit odd since the tyres are new, but its a good reason to get some new wheels. i had a look at some japan racing jr6, but they wont be in stock in 7x15 et35 until december this year. Guess ill have to wait a bit. who know, maybe i change taste before then too. I'm hoping it will look sweet with some dish and some meaty 205/55 r15 tyres!
So off we were on a 10 day / 1800km road trip all arround denmark driving with a speed no more than 90 kmh.
Awesome trip where among many other things, i had the countrys biggest "Tartelet" with 750 grams of stuffing or gravy or whatever its called in english.
So the car has been shaking when braking. new discs and everything is fine for 2-3000 km.. After 4 sets of discs, i wanted to try something new. So i bought me some quite expensive TA technics discs and consulted with the local facebook group. The group thought i might be tightening the discs too much (which i definetly did). To my luck, i got a tourqe wrench for christmas this year, so with new fancy discs torqued up to 80 nm i now have hope that the issue is resolved (fingers crossed).
