It indeed does.. will have to see real mockups though.. painting white is also on my mind

You can go for either gunmetal rims or white would also look good.Badboy might be able to help you with the white rims.

White looks ok but gun metal looks fine also.Both of the are good choices,i doubt about mirror finish and black combo.

But one thing, IMO upsize of wheel and tyre may make the ride look real bling (i ve seen a white sx4 in chennai with upsized chrome &black rims, looked awesome).

@gopinathann:i got pics of those alloys from an american alloy wheel site, and those are custom made wheels so model like those wont be available here, but anyhow you can find somewhat similar models at LALs or the wheel shop near EGMORE DON BOSCO(PM redsfx for the exact address of that shop).

Thanks @badboy, but right now not going to change alloys, wanted to repaint if possible. Just ordered the MGA Skirting and would get fixed by weekend.
