Planet Rocker echoes my sentiments!

Your Cedia looks the part, Khoj. It may look stock, but some knobby tyres would have made this Cedia look straight out of a Rally. You must, and should, keep it dirty at all times!

Let me present a slight more dirt friendly Cedia that belongs to a TBHPian:

Alloys: OE
Tyres: Yokohama S Drives

Suhaas / Khoj / Gaurav - don't you agree that all cedias should remain dirty?

Could you please throw some light on the make, size and the price of these Alloys. Am planning to buy Fusion and wanted to get alloys in this pattern.

Looks great man. I wish they were gunmetal, then the design could have been seen better. How is the car after the Revo map? Update in your thread please.

Looks stunning to say the least. Complements the car very well. Do post more pics of the wheels in daylight if possible.

From what i heard they spray a very glossy black paint on it, and then they spray alot of layers of clear coat. The gloss black paint is slighty mixed with chromish silverish paint.

No offense but these wheels will be very big for a fusion bro. They are asa GT1's. 19x8.5 slightly stretched on a 235/35/19 michelin pilots all season tires.

hey thanks man i appreciate it. They were gunmetal before if you look in my previous thread but i got bored so i got it painted to kinda give it a murdered out look. Plus my tints are jet black 0% and i have put black vinyl on my roof so these wheels in this color compliments it well.

I recently changed the rims on my Punto.
I purchased a set of used Linea rims and got them custom painted.
The idea came from a fellow BHPian Ravveendrra. He has done a similar theme on his yellow Palio.
Thanks for your inputs.
Here are the pictures.
Pictures are taken by a friend Jyotbir Singh (chiragh_bir 's younger brother)
