^^Seems like you finally got the special number plates which you ordered.

I am still waiting a side profile image of the car with on those massive 19" rims.

Please post the images for our viewing pleasure.

Uploaded a few pics but trust me these are unreal. wheels are totally different in person.

BTW brakes are now painted black. Yellow kinda looked cheesy.

Last one with old wheels but look at that GC.

Man! There are some real wicked looking rims!

How are you surviving with such low pro tyres and such reduced ground clearance?

Is there any mis-match in trye and recommended rim width as in the 3rd image the tyre seems to be almost off the rim.

What make are these are what are you running these on? I am sure it's no ride for the comfortable/plush backbenchers

Thanks for your kind comments. Well I only stay in Chandiagrh where roads are very good or travel to delhi/shimla. I drive real easy on the highways and open up when I know the stretch is perfect.

Yeah well tires are 235-35-19/265-30-19 on 9J/10J rims. They are little stretched but work great!!

This is max size without fender rolling and zero rubbing at all times.

These are reps of OEM "BMW M3 GTS" wheels running on Yoko S drives. Plus lowered on KW V2 with a very hard damper setting, I love the ride, very stiff, zero body roll and great at corners. I hate traveling in the Toyota indeed.

I just got the splitters from jbspeed today. Lousy fit and colour is off too. Have installed them anyway. Let's hope they stay put!

You will need some sort of super glue to make them stay put. Also if you think the color is off you can ask for refund. They fit fine though not OEM.

Damn those wheels! They look super hot in 19" and in black. All in all, White car + black super low profile wheels make a perfect combination. My heart just dropped!

Upgrading the brakes would add to the look. They look too small for those huge wheels.

Car is now lowered on kw v2 height adjustable as well as dampening adjustment coilovers. It now is really conformatble and handles like a real bmw!

Got bored of the 18" rubber so now I am running 19" wheels with 235 35 19, 265 30 19. Pics coming soon. Wheels are same as the orange m3.

Check out this video too you can see the new wheels and no existant fender gap cause of lowering.


265/30's at the rear is pretty cool taran. How is the zero clearance working out? I am sure you did your homework but how is it treating you with aggressive turns? The car looks swEeEeEeEettt though

Nothing to beat the old bangle lines man. Enjoy!
