It is probably the angle of the photograph or the fact that the car was on a banked road. Here's another pic taken on level road. Thanks for your wishes

EDIT: Unable to attach attachments more than an Mb from the mobile app. Will do so when I get to my computer.

Yes, these are running on 165/80 R14 tyres. Model no - PY764 (replica of Lenso Samurai SC01) in Machined black finish.
Picked them up from Car Trendz, Wheeler road, who's the official distributor of Plati alloys in Bangalore. Paid 13.8k for a set of 4, including wheel nuts & wheel balancing.

Thanks! While I don't have a side pic right now, I'll shoot one and post it soon. Till then, please make do with a photoshopped image that I'd created before buying these alloys to visualize how they'd look on my car

There is an understated elegance in the design of the Figo as well as its alloys. Your car looks really nice.

lovely pics and rims. But hows the ride with those low profile tyres? I am sure they definitely help improve the handling of i20

Thanks man . Yes I agree with you completely. I love the car from an overall packaging standpoint.

Couldn't find better alloys at this price range...i have liking for black alloys but was afraid it won't suit the car....so chose these ones...

looks ok..

Hi o.D
The alloys look awsome.
Were these a straight fir onto the XUV or did you have to fit spacers etc?

Whats the make of the alloys, not sure if I can get these in Chandigarh/ Delhi when I am in Ind next month?

Thank you.

Tej

Give you some ideas while you're still scouting for wheels for your Scorpio.



Yoko-Geolanders in 265-65-17 were the only other options available which would have been an overkill in my opinion. I did a 1300 KM run both on the highway+asphalt and am happy the way the tyres performed.

Thanks GTO wrt to keeping them white been there and done that with my Baleno. IMO white wheels makes the ride look more Sporty.

I have a red swift, but thanks to photoshop, I know that my alloys would look even better on a black one
