Those ugly car league tables…

So The cube often pops up in the ugly car league tables, unjustly our readers would have it I think, but the winner is almost always the fiat multipla.

A bit of a dig around the net and having been sent some Goodies by a club friend at Nissan has given us some gems of things to work with. Now lets take a look at how our quirky little boxes came about from these odd inspirational items and the odd number of people who have threatened to quit over not being taken seriously!

So in this article we will take a look at how to break down the code on the side of the wheel and the way this can be used to get a good fit for your new different diameter wheels.
