Yes it happens with load at rear. Everytime it makes huge noise while scraping, my heart sinks.
I'm planning for some minor modifications till the end of life of this tyre. Next time I'll change to 65 profile.

Ride - Nice Alloys.

@ Thyagi - Those rims are awesome. The tires seem to be 205s and you have debadged the rear.

Thats correct, It reads K-speed. they are basically imports from china. Dont know how robust or brand famous they are, but they're treating me good till now.

Hey Jk, My baby is 2001 OHC 1.5exi. I believe the color of the wheels really depends on the color of the car. I went in for these as mine is a metallic green and as per my choice anything in white or chrome would just not go with them.

Bingo Busa! we do have a similar one in Lenso and yes its an OHC.

Hope All you T-bhpians out there like them. Let me add that the correct upsize makes a hell lot of a difference. Who wants another pic
