@Sandeep_vgl,

I loved the alloys.

I have a few queries to wheel upgrade for my storme (Astern Black)

* Can we upgrade existing stock to a high "inch alloys ?

* I do not want a full blown out balloon look. Something what you did here is fine by me. So, will this require additional cutting/machine work on alloys to overcome the rubbing affect?

* Are there any trusted portals where we can go through the alloy list?

Thanks.

MGA wheels generally look very plain jane but by painting them black you have made them look sporty. They look good now.

OK, that red lip definitely complements the black rims but yes, it is probably better to have either that or red calipers/drums.

265/70R15 Apollo Apterra on 15x7JJ CBU Enkei Wheels on my Gangsta. Hub caps had to be replace with Infinity Off-road hubcaps after I lost one of the original caps in an Off-road trail.
How are your Apterra's holding. I had a bad experience with Hawkz on my Pajero, but that was 3 years back. They has a constant vibration and could not be balanced and went out of balance within a few hundred kilometeres.

Would love to know your experience with these Apterra's.
