Where did you get these from? They've been out of production for a few years now.

Got the tyres from a tyre shop in karol bagh it was what the guy at the lenso shop advised me to go.Doubt these are out of production because the tyres were brand new even had the plastic on them.Got the tyres checked up and the guy said that they are perfectly fine as there was no air leakage or anythin but planning to get that tyre put at the back just for safety.Will post pics tomorrow for sure.
Manveet-keep the car its amazing.And i havent got black alloys with a chrom lip but shadow chrome alloys with a chrome lip

What's the size you've gone with, they seem to be smaller (larger gap than usual) or maybe it's an illusion?

I agree ,somehow they look smaller than 17` rims/tyres.
Nice choice of rims though.

Nice rims rohan, Time for Projectors, Mugen Kit, Grill and Spoiler

How much did the rims and tires cost you, Like Ishaan said this tire is out of production. I dont think Michelin India has this in their Range

The profile he's riding on is 215/45 17s, i think its a lip rim which does tend to make the rim look smaller, although having seen the car in person, it surely looks hot with these Lenso's!!

Look for the Four Digit number on the tyre, The First two digits indicate the Week and the last two the year of DOM.

The Number on my Tires is 2308, indicating the tire was made in 23rd week of 2008. A Year has 52 Weeks.

The Design you have is called the Konvex, Its available in a White finish also right, how would that look on my car,I think its time for new Rims

Yup I agree, I has seen that 18" but the cost jump from 17" to 18" is huge, a 17" Rim costs 27k but that 18" costs 45k

Not to mention the high Tyre Costs in 18", I would rather spend on getting better 17" Tires, Like a PP2 or Advan sport
