Krishna, do you find any issues after you fir the 235s. Many are advising me against it as it brushes against your leaves. Did you face any issues?

Hey Krishna,
Is your alloys having a negative offset? My guess, it does.
That is the reason your tyres don't foul.
Not sure if Desmo plans to fit those 235s on OEM rims.
Cheers,
Deepak

Yes Deepak, i was planning on mounting them on stock rims. but after looking at everyones advice, i decided not too.

i am still thinking about it if i get a good set of alloys. will be checking those out over the weekend.

BTW, how much buyback do we get for stock rims?

Buyback of steel rims will be pathetic, new ones are available very cheap. So store it proper in the garage.

Those were the pic's i got over the net. now posting the actual ones.
I could not get the knobs fitted as the old one is not coming out. Thinking of cutting it out now.

Plans for next weekend is Innova seats. Will be soon going to Shivaji Nagar Gujri.
