The wheels were bought from the Classifieds section. Got them repainted, chrome plated the lip and walla... all for around 14k

Here are a few more pics

Hi Karthik, Those wheels look very classy thanks to all the hard work put in by you on them. I normally do not like black wheels, but they suit your car very well, the chrome lip accentuates the fine lines and would look stunning when the car is moving.

Cheers,

IMO it will look too flashy and bling.

Now when the cars moving, you only see the chrome lip and the painted calipers.

Great car! Congrats, Karthik.

Looks like a lot of demand for vRS. It appears to be very mod-friendly too. Is vRS becoming the next VTEC?

Regards
Rex
