Default The Godfather of all People Carriers - Toyota Hiace (tourister??)

Spotted this outside ITC today. It is a TOYOTA tourister or something. Forgot the name
Just look at those beautiful rims. They were huge. At least 17s or 18s


Also when clicking these, a fleet of 5 BMW 7 series all Golden all with mutispoke sort of wheels passed by.

Is that a Toyota Hiace by any chance? They were quite popular with diplomats some time ago and was even used as a school bus for the American School of Bombay.

Is it just me or do the rims look a little ghetto?

^^ Yeah

To me those looks like chrome wheel covers; and looking at the amount of plastichrome garnishing on those vehicles i think they really are.
