Must be a bone-jarring ride! Somehow doesn't suit the Ikon methinks, but that is a personal choice of course!

It is totally gangsta! You can spot this car from a kilometer off.

@KP, you definitely have very well-informed sources!

@car_god, I remember seeing this pic in your Orkut profile.

15"? How is the ride now? Just my view, but I thought it would look even better with a set with thicker spokes, like the Toyota OEM alloys.

Sounds strange but the ride quality hasn't deteriorated even a bit....if you look closely the spokes arent smoothly curved but each spoke has sharp cuts to it,so it actually looks good when its moving as each plane catches the light.
And Dont like the toyota OEM alloys too much..
