tsk1979... Nice choice!

Would you mind posting a pic with a better side profile view?

BTW, I was following the other thread where you wrote about all your test driving experience a while back (when truck driver went for hatch shopping) but I think I missed to keep tab of that off late and never realized that the decision was made. Good one!

Best,
R-Six

Me loves alloys, the black metal types. The i20 got them - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...ml#post2257708

And now, the Beat diesel gets them too (took delivery yesterday)
Upsized from 165/65 R14 to 175/65 R14 (wanted a few mm more in ride height)

Awesome set of wheels there BunnyPunia. Looks "I(20)catching" & "Beat"iful.

One of my friend installed a similar one (one on the Beat) on his I10 recently and it quite honestly transformed the looks. Just to complete the look, have your thought about Blackening the B-pillars on your rides ? Should enhance the looks further.

I personally feel your I20's shoe looks Hotter than your Beat's.

Hi Vik, thanks for the words
Yes, I too feel the same about the i20's alloys - couldnt find the same design in 14-inch for the Beat and hence had to settle for these ones.
Blackening of B-pillars follows soon. Got lotta things on my mind and just had the ICE set-up done yesterday. I actually made full use of the (small) boot - the JBL bass tube occupies the whole place. Paid around 20k for the system and pretty happy with it.

Both cars literally beg for the dark tints to make it look like a killer. Not that its looking bad now, but with tints the level would have only got higher.

Thanks for Sharing and by the way how much did the i20 and beat alloys cost you.

Tints - wanted them badly but cant - the recent court order and super high fines!

It has transformed the look of you Scorpio. It looks subtle yet attractive and like no other.

Hey Octane78,

This is a nice change from those regular alloys. I must tell you that the entire combo looks good! Much better than the look of the OE alloys.

Best,
R-Six

Woah octane78 you just gave your "Scorpio" a "Sting"!!!

I have a similar concept on my Getzy and it really changes the stance of the ride.
IMO you should probably get the Pillars b/w the Window panes Blackened. It will take it further.

Thanks F150. The painter charged me 750 bucks for the 4 alloys including Diamond white colour on the hub caps.
