firstly thank you for the site rj.
the ride on these wheels would not be of likeness at all. alot of impact on the steering wheel and the ride quality is bad. it feels like you got a flat tyre. you cannot use full power for fear of cracking the wheels. i have driven an s class with 20" wheels so thats how i know.

Well when you can afford it, why bother about the wheels cracking .
Am sure he can get another set.


BTW bangy boys, any idea who owns this, politician / builder / some big shot techie ?
Coz like I mentioned the last time I spotted this car, it was in the Millenia building.

i agree with you rj. the owner of the s class that i drove, drive it like there is no tommorow. he has one extra set of wheels for his car of which he has already cracked two wheels. i heard they cost 1 lac a wheel dont know how true it is but they were specially imported.

Also owns the SL55 masquerading as an SL500 which is actually an SL55. Search for silver Supra turbo's, silver Porsche carrera' in Bangalore and you will have an idea.

There is also a black Porsche Cayenne Turbo in the same family which i see in the club most sundays

I dunno if it's the same guy, when I had gone to give my Alto for service I saw a Black Cayenne Turbo parked in service bay.

Asked around a bit and found that it was the owner's son's car. Looked simply outstanding amongst the Maruti's. The service centre was Solar automobiles at St. john's road near Naga theatre.

If yes, then the wheels are by Kahn Design a relatively new company based in the Uk dealing mainly in visual enhancements. But lately they've gone somewhat into Engines/Performance etc. too.

Well that's correct since the Forester was a Subaru always, albeit was badged Chevrolet in India since people don't know about the Subaru brand.
