What size tryes on on that digit Franklin? They look rather wide! I'm assuming they're michelins?

Its running 185/60 R14 budgets, it should have 165/70 originally and im suprised they fitted under the Mk1 rear arches, have to say they do look well and make it look a bit more sporting!

Indeed, I really like the look of the slightly beefier tyres - fit perfectly fine too.

My thinking precisely :) I even prefer the trims with the beefier tyres around them, does look much more sporting, something I feel BX's (MK1's especially) lack, that is except for 16v's/hurricanes.

So.

That's what has become of my Digit.

Given the chaos, discussions, emails, effort, mileage, arguments, lack of communication (mainly on my part), forum posts, etc.etc.etc. that have all gone on over this car since I rescued it waaay back in 2005 (yes, that was eight damn years ago!) I can only say I'm rather glad to see that it's been restored and is now back on the road.

I still have quite a number of bits that were supposed to go with that car.. I re-discovered a complete working dash recently, which was a bit interesting.
this might be a signature
