Hi Pramod, I picked the wheels from a friend who got TSW's for his Rapid. The wheel were originally bought from a shop called Auto Mall in Kochi/Ernalulam Kerala. If I remember correctly the had other PCD's too. It came in silver, I re-painted it to brown-gold.

This looks like the same one, please do check it out.

I really like how the lug nuts are placed in the recess, highlighting the design of the alloy. No holes to block the design and clean finish. Looks amazing!

Fantastic choice! You had similar wheels on your Civic, didn't you? In matt grey?

The wider alloys + negative offset give it that spaced out look. The net effect is, as if you've installed 15mm spacers. I think you should look to upsize tyres to 235s.

Yes, I had the same design in a different finish.

Offset has changed only by 7mm though. OE Wheels are 49 and these are 42. It's mainly the wider alloys that are giving this look.

235 doesnt have many good options. Would rather stick to 225/45-17!

My friend has swapped the stock 16" alloys with Advanti Racing 17" wheels and stock good years with Pirelli Cinturato P7s on his Creta. The makeover went very well IMO!
