Those alloys give entirely different character to SX4. Wow!!! the car looks fantastic, very well maintained.

@Monaro: Aren't your Octi alloys something similar ? :-)

Hey Abhijit,
You noticed!

Mine are not exactly like Peters. Peter's wheels had the BMW lookalike logo.

Check out my set of wheels in my profile-garage..

Cheers

Is it for real ?? I can't believe it
What a crazy idea, what will he gain adding brand new tyres and alloys to a cart ??

I can see its not morphed so it has to be real.

^^True, the car is just in need of a good wash. The alloys are in pretty decent condition.

Now that is some lovely foot-wear on your crisp white i20. The slightly higher, 55 profile ensures that you get a good compromise between handling and comfort. Are they Yoko S-Drives? I haven't really scrutinized the photo. Pardon me.

EDIT: Yes they are.

Thats some nice looking alloys you got there on your ride, mind sharing the cost part too. Also how's the ride and handling now as compared to the earlier ones.

So you thought those alloys were dirty then take a look at mine. At Kishangarh pit stop 2/3rds of the way down from BOM to DEL last week and carrying a lot of the rain related muck from the West to the North

The Blue Streak actually looked quite dashing with all of the accumulated muck, should play in the dirt more often

Thanks bro, Well i just used the stock wheels and Tyres for 40kms only. Cant give you more information that. But i must say this wheels are giving me best handling and road grip.

Friend of mine is running wheels showroom in Kerala. Before i got delivery of my car i selected this wheel for mine. You may find many better designs in wheels. But the true part is only it suits some vehicles. So what i did is through the help of Photoshop i tried placing few of my selected wheels pics on a i20 model and finally approved the model which i am using right now.

I sold the Stock tyres and Wheels for 16k and i Bought
Yokoham s drive set of 4 @ 18,800 INR
EVO 15" Alloys set of 4 @ 17,500 INR

A Cedia / Lancer should look dirty through out the year. The owners should never keep the car clean especially during monsoon.

These rally bred cars loves to get dirty all the time
