@Akshay4587, good afternoon, i do respect the owner's pick. But in general context of the road conditions in Delhi/NCR these tyres may not survive for long as the tyres seems too thin and smaller than rim. To test the tyre's worth owner of accord should drive at Yamuna Expressway which has cemented tracks instead of coal tar. If they survive there then may be his investment is ok as the expressway has a history of tyre bursts. Normal car tyre's dont survive in there which makes me wonder the "especiallity" of these wheels.

thanks

Edit :

I guess he got the rims but was unable to source the tyres. Probably 245 was the best he got. Sourcing 20" tyres must not have been an easy task.

So he must have done his homework before selecting the tires.
He definitely knows what he's doing IMHO.

Anything more that 245 (current setup), and the tires would scrape against the wheel arches and the fenders (if its not scraping already).

He'd have to go with a lot of alterations with the possibility of wider wheel arches / wide body kit / fender flares to keep these tires and/or broader tires to do justice to the wheels.

Looks awesome nonetheless

Who cares? This is a car to roll in sedately, feel massively cool and sit back comfortably with the sun glinting off those massive Vossens. And with looks like those, I'd probably end up riding on the rims alone! The subtle kit compliments the wheels well.

. Vossen in India? I am a great fan of Vossen wheels. Please check their Face Book page "Vossen Wheels". I wonder where they have set up their shop.

Got to give it , they look pretty stunning and the car does look cool , in terms of feasibility never known anyone to ride on such thin rubber so wondering how long they would last - maybe its fine.

All of sudden a flash flood of modded cars with huge fog lamps. All of them looks good. Especially the Ford Fiesta and Renault Logan. In Hyundai Verna, barring fog lamps and alloys other changes are limited (I think).

IMHO, it does really depend on your driving styles on how long your tyres run well. These rims are for limited rides, and that is what the owner might have intended. The low-slung mafia look

Dear Team, saw this decently done up Cruze at Sector 50 Central Market Noida today. Due to slight rains in morning it had some dry spots else it is done up very nicely with good color combo. Its done totally with 2 tone vinyl. Neat Job on the whole.

thanks

Hello BHPians, I had seen another Cruze with a matte grey color and the Audi headlamps, 7 series tail lamps, and a gloss black roof( or Panaromic sunroof) and no front number plates. Is it legal to shift placement/remove number plates from the front or rear of the car?

The Cruze is wacky IMHO, the whole looks of the car are out of place, red and black combination looks good only on few cars if done right.
