I dont know why but the car doesnt look right to me..
May be its just the pics..

But isnt it too high??
I mean even though the wheels are 18" the car seems to be running on smaller wheels..

Also there some more space left after putting on 18" of wheels...so whats the biggest size that can be fitted to this baby??


If possible lower the car...and get some Black Tints..

Dude you have got to lower the car man atleast 1.5 inches man. Those rims are an awesome choice. Lower it and it'll look explosive. Nice caawwww raaattt theyyy'r (total red-neck style)

Great looking ride gautam. I reckon the pics havent done justice to the car, it indeed looks quite tall/tilted. Look forward to some clean side profiles and 3-quarters. Enjoy your car !!!

114.3 x 4, not x 5. Your Zen has it, so does the Esteem, the Wagon R, the Alto, the Optra, blah blah blah...

Congratulations Gautam the car looks nice! Though have to say that my concern over the excessive GC has come true. Maruti has overdone it & now it looks a bit wonky with even 18" wheels!!! Like everyone advised if you can lower it, it'll improve the looks greatly.

The only thing that looks out from your car is the RIMS.. WOW.. 18" huge!! Nice rims, but could have got better than these.. or these looked the best on the car.. So hows the ride? Does it feel better? Holds on to the road? How about cornering?
