Sorry to say this man, but IMHO the black rims totally ruined what was a classy euro hot hatch. Now it looks like a boy racer to me. Sorry to be harsh. If you like it, then fine, it's your ride, your decision.

Thanks man,those are 16 inch(8J) luxotik alloys shod with Yokohoma Geolanders(255/60/R16) .
I was pretty lucky coz the dealer called me to the container yard and showed me the alloys which was to be shipped elsewhere. One look and I fell for it and they offloaded it for me and this was the only set available in this design.

The price , I paid zilch that's like 24k for a set of 5. Balancing and alignment free as always.

@rjstyles69 , your Scorpio's snaps were always awesome !

Now your ride looks really nice with these alloys .

I believe these alloys are zero offset , so how much has the wheels come out combined with the wider rims and 255 yokos ?

You surely got a very attractive deal. Looking really good Riju. Car is looking more tight now.

Any difference in steering response and how's the handling now?

I'll say it again Prashanth, its a Stonker Now!!!

I just love the Blue Caliper contrasting against the Grey Car & Black Rims. Brilliant Pick of color.

So, only thing left for you (& us) is a Photoshoot.

Thanks Rudra. Steering definitely has become lighter and to let you know it's been almost 6 months since I got the alloys .
