Thanks - the tyres are ES 100's 225/45/17. Damage is quite a bit 55k - but i traded in my older set of 15" alloys & practically new 195/65/15 NCT 5's so it was a slight cushion - There is a noticeable diference in handling - the first time I drove out with the new setup WOW the steering was RAZOR SHARP - but there is surely a compromise on ride quality.

Cheers

Good going there Ricky, that's a very nice choice! How much was the cost for the Alloys only?

@ hellspawn
Recently ?? Blue Zen ??

@ iraghava
Glad you like the setup. The Alloys by themselves I should say 30 -ish haven't settled the bill yet - the trade off from my 15 inchers is still to come.

Cheers

I really like what you've done with your Alloys and Wheels. A very Neat & Clean Look.

Understated.

Quite unlike your other car.

The "BBS"-ish pattern is very good.
I didn't like them when i first saw them.But, they just grew on to me!!
Good choice on both rim and tyres,man.

Thanks..Glad you like the wheels. The design is hard to come by for some reason, had been trying to procure it for a long time but always ended up with compromises. This time I stuck to my guns..& finally got what I wanted.
