Hicas question

Postby Bobber10 » Mon Mar 28, 2022 6:52 pm

Does anyone have any first hand experience with hicas breaking due to bigger rims? If so is there like some sort of strength kit or something?
Thanks

Not sure about breaking due to bigger wheels, but I have heard of them just breaking in general even with stock wheels. They sell HICAS delete kits I believe.

Breaking in what ways? Additional load required to turn the wheels?

To be honest I'm not even sure if those parameters are even viewable through CONSULT or Nissan DataScan. The same system was used on Z32s and they run pretty meaty OEM tires/wheels.

im not even sure myself, because from what ive heard (i have an infinti j30) it just breaks with wheels bigger than 16's but i have some 18's and there is no rubbing so it must be load because they are more heavy than the oem, but i feel like if it is the same system than all the other Nissan's of that time that used it extra weight wouldn't matter
