Coincidentally I have been searching the forum to find which alloy design looks good on the Altis but seems like no body has done any mods so far, not even an ICE upgrade.

unfortunately the delivery was delayed but we got the car this tuesday.
Am waiting for the pictures and hopefully will be able to upload by this weekend.

Alloys have not been changed. They are the original ones which come with the car.

Default The Pics

Finally the pictures...
The idea was to restrict the design for a corporate look.
RIO has done a great job..

Very nice work, really looking good. Just put some 17s on it, the stock wheels are not matching up to the rest of it.

I'd go for the Toyota aftermarket kit anyday. This one totally fails to impress me. Just a personal opinion.

Not a great looker by any standard (just my opinion), but a well executed (read neat) job !!

Never really liked the Altis much. IMHO The older Corolla looks better any day.



Cheers

The front fin looks great I guess that's a showroom fitment.
The car is begging for larger alloys especially with the body kit it's much needed!

Some how i am not satisfied with the overall finish. Lacks the refinement. (again thats my personal opinion). Paint job is not that good i feel.

I somehow have never liked RIO design's mod jobs. I feel cars done up by them look quite overdone. Maybe i'm ignorant about modding cars or i'm a big idiot. Even if they might be perfect mod jobs, I don't like their looks.
This Corolla Altis however looks pretty sober as compared to their other jobs IMHO.

Not to my taste. And with stock rims. A Big No-No for me.
