The tyres are not ordinary tractor tyres, I think.

Hi all . yes the tyres are not the ordinary tractor tyres. actually my friend wanted to go low profile. but because of no front suspension they went to a little high profiles

I feel that tractor should go into the weird & wacky mod thread . Alloys on Tractor is just too much .

Anyway, I wanted to know if anyone have the Lenso Intimidator Alloys on their Scorpio or any other SUV? If so can I see some photographs?

(alloys + tyres + balancing + alignment + nitrogen + wheel nuts) - (OE tyre + rims + wheelcaps) = 27K

Lenso alloys are around 16-18K
Tyres BS 185/65R14 MY01 are 4.3K

I feel that i got around 1,750 for my 175/65R14 GoodYear GT3 s.

I scouted ALL the major tyre shops in Kochi. The formula is simple. Some shops give discount on alloys and charge high for tyres & vice versa. If you like a particular alloy design you have no other option but to buy your tyre there, same goes for the tyre. In my case i liked the tyre (no other shop had MY01 in stock) so worked out this package after negotiation.

After 1600 kms, i am satisfied with this jodi (looks/comfort/3rd party opinions)

Lenso alloys are finished better than most of the competitors in the same price band.

The Intimidator alloys aint that great when it comes to looks, not the ideal deep dish model. I would prefer an alloy with a little bit of a negative offset and something that sticks out of the body lines by an inch or so. BTW they aint cheap too, a set of 4 is close to 24/25k.

Look at the EVO/K-speed alloys, they have pretty good designs for the SUV's.Take a look at NIP's scorpios alloys from EVO, they look amazing.

@ryan: Deep dish alloys are "IN" these days, go for a deep dish, and a chrome/ machined/ or black finish will look good on your ride.. do not go for Hyper silver alloys..
IMO, 2 corner alloys on the bottom most row would look good on your ride..

Awesome. Man, I never thought I'd ever see alloys on a tractor! What make is it? And the tires? I don't suppose it's too useful on the farm, eh?

Those alloys look great on Ritz. Those wheels looks average if viewed seperately/any other car but on your Ritz it looks great, job well done!
