the Optra is crying out for some larger wheels! These look way too small in those huge, pronounced wheel arches.

I totally agree. That's my biggest crib about Optra.
I'll need to see the new 'so called limited edition' 15 inch wheel for Optra.

I dont really like those alloys, *they must be 15"ers...but they dont look big at all... just the fact that the "spokes" curve in so early and dont even reach the lip of the rim. Plus the two tone black and silver on a silver car doesnt really do it for me.

Heres a really poopy 20second photoshop job to show what i mean>

Nice one..!!!
There is one thing i dont like abt the design of the Optra... the rear overhang goes much above the ground than the overall body!!!

Thanks aadix...

Dipen, the aloys in the pic u posted do have spokes that go to the rim...but they dont really do it for me.

Is it just me...or is it that most cars nowadays dont seem to strike the right proportion of tire size to body size!@#?

hey aadix

I also saw this car have a whole load of neon lighting in the car. In the grille, the undercarriage as well as the interiors. Even the handbrake if i remember right. Will try and find that link again and post it up.

R and Gordon, i agree they aren't really hot, maybe i oversaid it...lol. But yea, it just shows that, as Rehaan said, cars are no longer designed around alloy wheels.
Pity!
