Hey Blueraven,
could you please also post the make (not dimensions) of the rubber as well & how well are they performing, both comfort & handling wise.

These are not Lenso, they are Titan racing. Tyres are 185 45 / R15.
These wheels are to basically look good, ride quality is the same as what the 195 45 r14s are. I have hardened suspension from before, so they feel the same as what I am used to for the last 3 years. Handling is really good, the tyres stick very well.
Alloys costed 18k for set of 4. Tyres around 4600 each.
Lenso is coming up with a series called KUZA which will have red / blue / green lining or lip.

Tyres are nankang, they have good grip but they are not the best tyres or anything, but for the Zen with 15s there is not much of a choice

O, alright. They have the same tread pattern as the Roadstone N2000's that are there on my car, so was just curious

Im suprised that you went in for Nankang, Why not Maxxis atleast? AFAIK Nankangs are very hard.

Dude, the rims are good. frankly speaking, they look a lil dull. No offense meant.

Remove the mud flaps and paint the tyre font white. This will change the look of your vehicle
