I suppose the Petra/ Siena has such great ride, an inch increase in rim size does not take anything perceptible away from the ride. Now that you mention this thing about motion, I have to reconsider. In fact, many rims look different in motion from what they do at rest. That calls for a video of the wheels in motion. That's a tough one. By the way, I have saved you Siena's image on my laptop. Its such a handsome car. Can't get enough of it.

Hey gowda79, no offense but this thread is for NON OE alloy wheels. Those are the standard factory fitted ones.

P.S. - Love the pic where the safari is half on the mud and half on the pathway

Default need to lower your car

hey rider, you have to lower your car man(suspension). That way, your alloys would look much cooler. I mean there's a huge gap between the wheel wells and your tyres. By the way, I am new to the forums so can you tell me how did you upload the pictures of your car directly in the forum?
