Hi NITINRALLI
These look nice...where were these sourced from in Delhi?
Please could you send a pic of the XUV from the rear. Thanks buddy. Tej

Hey o.D - Correct you are buddy!!
Yep the Rim's vary on the front and rear of the X5 and hence varied Tyre width.
By the way, I got the rears incorrect earlier. Rear's are 335 profile and 19".
BTW I am not a big fan of Chrome either but painting an alloy may not be the best idea to be honest. North can get pretty hot.
Think I will stick with 235/65/17 all wheels. Not sure if that will make the wheels look puny from the rear.
Say this model on their website and like it...suggestion?

Why would you want a staggered setup. Is it for looks alone? Do check the width's of the rims on the XUV's available back there and also your X5 M Sport. The width of the rims would also be different. You should maybe come down and check in the market rather than online for buying the tyres and would recommend that you stick with 60 profiles if you are looking for anything wider than 235's.

The main difference is JK's are way to hard for my liking. The ride quality was like its when you over inflate the tyres. Why don't you drive a vehicle which has a set of Bridgestones and then take call.

Cheers

Here it is, this is the only one i could find. Bought it from East of Kailash, dont remember the shop name.

Edit: I know you want to see how alloys looks from the back and the pic above does not clearly show that, but i can tell you, it looks exactly like o.D alloys looks from the back. These are negative offset hence they pop out making tyres look wider.

Tej,

Since the upgrade rims are going to be 8J the wheels are for sure gonna have a wider stance. In my case the 8J + the 255 width have made the tyres jut out a tiny bit. Suggest S202 the Full Machined Black.

Cheers

Hey hawk, I am planning to change to alloys. Where did you buy these and how much did it cost. If I manage to get the ones I like, will get it done today.

I got my set from Final Touch on Mission Road. The whole package cost me 42k (15" AWA RS-GT hyper black + Hankook Ventus Prime 195/55/R15).

Thanks. What's the breakup, How much for the alloys only? I may not really change my stock goodyear tyres. Deciding between Plati or AWA.

IIRC, it was 20k change for the alloys alone, for a set of five.

Whoa! Those wheels look immensely impressive on your ride, superb!

Apparently the 15" alloy options i see in Cochin for Figo are not to my liking. Has anyone tried 16" rims on figo?
