Edit: Those are the set of 5 LENSO alloys in the trunk, in the last pic.

Hi
congrats Tom.Your car looks nice.I heard White and Blue have become new high demand colours.So great.But i am keen to see the pics. of your alloys.As you have mentioned Lenso,i believe those should be 100PCD.or is it 98PCD?
if it is 100PCD how have you fixed those on your car.Just curious to know.Your tyre dealer told you that 100PCD can be mounted easily?or you knew it before?

Hi Vignesh the 100PCD LENSO alloys on the car was mounted without any problems or alterations. Though the bolts had to be changed as they are very short for the alloys.

PS: Sorry Tom for replying for the question intended to you.

Thank mate. I knew how serious the PCD issue is. I have searched a lot for 98 PCD wheels. Later decided to take a chance and went for 100 PCD wheels. You know, everyone learns things in a hard way.
