As I was told, this is supposed to be his 4th set on his car in past couple of months.
Additional it had 4 Infinity subs and ICE setup between 1.5-2L.
PS. This is not my car, spotted it in sector - 28, Chandigarh.
freakonabadassleash, Did you just say 305; I am thinking 201/215 and that is plenty wide for me. 305 in like the entire lane itself.
Oh bother, i will have to change lanes more often, i guess.

210/215 would be too skinny, considering stock tyres on endy are 255.
If you click on the pictures, you can read the markings on the tyre clearly.
305 is a huge upgrade anyways.

Massive weight + a wide lip (+low profile, of course) = bent rims easily.

Unknownsatan your Bal-ack-eno looks Sweet.

You know I felt there was somthing missing on your ride until I realized what that was!

I am sure you have atleast thought about this, but IMO one Spoiler will just upp the "Oomph" factor on this Black Beauty.

Thanks dude. I actually have OE spoiler. I kinda dont like the look of spoiler on a Baleno, so got it removed.
Anyway i have it still with me, so when i get bored of the blant look i will fix it up again

@tassem,

Your lancer is looking great. How is the ride quality with low profile tyres? and which brand?

Great!!

As I said, I always have felt that Baleno would have been the Closest any Indian Manf. had ever been in designing a sports Car, if not for that not very inspiring Tail lights and rear end. The only thing I felt would change this was a spoiler!!

All Said and Done, Your ride looks hot with those wheels and most importantly the Black Colour!!!

@Jeeva: Thanks! I've been thinkin about the smoked lamps for a while now. But I want to get a third brake lamp fixed, sorta like the ones that come on the zen, fixed below the bumper. My only worry is some driver tail ending me becuase of the smoked lamps and the dimmer brake light. The third lamp would sort that out. Any suggestions, anyone?

@unknownsatan: Thanks dude! I really like the all black look of your baleno. And funnily, I like it more cause of the absent spoiler. Call me weird, but I'm not a big fan of spoilers! For your next tyre change, try a lower profile. Would look dangerous!

@djay99: Thanks! The ride quality is absolutely fine. On really bad roads, there is quite a bit of judder, but then again its only marginal. You're free to have a go at my car if you plan on upgrading the tyres on your car. Maybe one of the weekends?

taseem thats a sweet looking lancer you have there. unknownsatan chrome on the alloys says bling bling, I would have preferred a red strip along lip of the alloy.

Thats a nice Lancer on this page. Is it recently repainted ? Apart from the body I liked the number plate as well. Cops and others need Binoculars to see whats written.

@rjstyles: Thanks!

@Prince: Yup, its recently repainted. Actually I have the high security plates for the front as well. But for some starnge reason they gave it to me without holes drilled and they did not have the drilling machine with them when I went to collect it. So for the time being I had them give me a sticker for the front. Though the plate is also of the same size

As i told before i have a spoiler but i removed it off cos i didnt like the way Baleno looks with it. We are among those very few Weirdos
