225/40. This will make the ride harsh!

Not all brands may have tires with these profiles. Suggest you research based on the sizes above, narrow down your search to the brands that have these tires and start a new thread in this section. Can't find an existing thread for the Octavia A7 tires.

235/40/18 tyres are available with nankang. They are decent tyres and costs around 9k only.

This is not mine, spotted it on a Baleno while at a traffic stop. Liked the alloys, suited the car well

Default The official alloy wheel show off thread. Lets see your wheels!

Car: Scorpio in royal blue
Tyres: OEM Bridgestone Dueller
Rims: Onyx 17"
Price: 30000 including balancing.

For anyone who's looking out for alloys of the NG Scorpio will know it's a rare breed. 17" don't come in 114.3 PCD normally and the rims are literally trickling into the market. Had these put on as soon as my guy told me about it. Some other variants include Golden in SSW and White that's was Taiwanese.

We both have the same Onyx rims on our cars, although mine are 14" and yours 17". Can you post a full profile shot of your Scorpio with these?

Guys I have GTR alloy wheels in my Skoda Rapid for last 2.5 years, but off late I have missed the central cap of couple of wheels. The wheels are giving me toothless smiles and the entire beauty of the alloys are gone. Any pointer from where I can source the central cap only ??

Apologies if I have picked a wrong thread for this question.

Get Skoda wheel caps. Most wheel cap diameters are universal. They will look even better than the GTR ones in my opinion.

Dealership (will be expensive but OEM stuff and perfect fitment guaranteed), Aliexpress (measure the internal diameter of the hole from the wheel hub and buy), eBay.com etc.
