That seems like a ZR6x extreme bodykit. If you're driving this in India then RESPECT

Nice! I have been long planning to upsize to this size on my city but stayed away due to negative reviews. Finally I can ask you for a first hand experience about this. Do tell.

Go for it! If anything the ground clearance has increased slightly and the car doesn't scrape on speed bumps as much as it did before.

Mileage has dropped a bit due to the larger contact patch - The car rolls less as a result of the upsize as well. These are known issues with going wide.

But the grip levels on cornering, breaking and high speed stability is much much better! The ride is not as soft as it used to be though but it feels a lot more sure-footed now.

There is no rubbing against any of the body panels - I recommend you get under the car to check if it touches the wheel arches (lock to lock) and with 4 people sitting in if possible.

All the best!

I purchased four rims for 58k. The actual price was much higher, but some how managed to get good discount.

Yep. The same alloys. What is the tyre profile ? Is that Polo GT TSi ?

Nice alloys! How are the Nankangs behaving while riding? I'm planning on buying the NANKANG NS-II but a couple of reviews pointed to them being too slippery..
