    Like all other cars, mark x offers couple of rim sizes and designs...one is the 16inch you're talking about, and the other is this 18inch.

    @ spectra
    yes nomicool is right, mark x comes in 2 rim and tyres sizes, if u open the driver door u can read the tyres sizes, although every thing is written in japanese but tyre sizes in numbers can b read, 215-60-R16 and 225-45-R18 for four tyres and 155-70-D17 for stupny, when i bought mine it was installed with 17 size after market rims, so m not sure it originally came with 16 or 18. Now after buying i think as my car is 3.0 G Premium so it must originally comes in 18, but anyhow i m now happy with my rim and tyres and like my rims more than original 18 rims ( sorry to nimicool )

    You should check out the thread on Car/UPS battery maintenance. I started maintaining my batteries after learning from there.

    Dear friends
    i need advice on taking my Mark X to snowy Murree. It has brand new yokohama tyres size 215-60-16 ( summer tyres ). Although the car is equipped with traction control and snow mode but still some people says rear wheel cars dont perform good in snow. If any one has taken rear wheel car ( not 4x4 ) or mark x to snowy area pl share his experience.

    Befikar ho ke jayen janab. that myth is about old cars with converted diesel engines. A stock setup RWD maintained properly is excellent for snow and hilly areas.

    well i obviously like the 18inch rims too.. but after my chachus experience with them on his 250g... they arent the smartest idea.. especially if your car is a daily runner... our roads will literally bend those rims in the longrun so much that, it wud start to effect ur suspnsion... he is running on 16s now stock size, but the 16 rims of mark x is quite expensive. so he has some taiwan ones on it nw...

    and abt snow... nothing is better then AWD in snow...
    i had an s class back in the states, and i dont recall any problems in the snow.. my accord (fwd) got stuck quite a few times... s class never did.. i guess it was because of the amount of power in the benz. that it can get out of any type of situation.

    @salik: Well, I have always used dry cell (maintenance free) batteries in the vehicles I have owned. They never give you trouble. You dont need to put any water in them. When they get weak, simply replace them. I will check the battery's brand and 'ah' I have in my mark x, and post it here later.

    @asad: I dont think so you should have any problem if you use 'SNOW' mode...thats what its there for...it limits the torque of the vehicle and disengages the first gear...so even from a dead stop, your car will start in 2nd gear...that means the car wont skid.

    Use the manual transmission mode on the hills along with SNOW, and you should be fine.

    thanks for info n yes i know about maintenance free battery just want to know the size/capacity of the battery for our markx...i ll wait for u

    @asad: yea use snow mode n check ur tire pressure too but i remember i skid on the rainy day even on snow mode tht coz i pressed full accelerator from dead stop so try to accelerate less btw u got traction control too which most markx doesnt have this option...so no worry about skidding
    My lugnuts require more torque than your Vtec can put out...

    For what its worth, I drive FWD, 4WD and RWD vehicles in a lot of snow routinely. If the driver is sensible, all are fine except in very deep snow. Nomicool's and Spectra's advice is spot on for you.

    Good point, but please note that while driving on snow/ice, SMOOTHNESS is ALL maneuvers is hugely important: acceleration (like NomiCool said), braking, lane changes, turns, i.e. EVERYTHING should be done in a SLOW and DELIBERATE manner.
