Cost of alloys 6500rs per piece and 4750 fore tyres. I feel a huge improvement in handling and stability. Here is close up picture.

Hey, i feel that's a rip off price, I too have the same series of Samurai mags. I paid little less than 5K per wheel and the tyres.. i think the price is on the higher side.

6.5k per alloy for Lenso Samurai SC01 15 inchers is way to high. I've paid 23k for set of 5 i.e. 4.6k per piece. May be the prices are increased now but shouldn't be in thousands of rupees. Not sure about BF goodrich prices though(eventhat also looking a bit on higher side).

Nice set of tyres but somehow the carbon fibre finish isnt prominent.
How did you find the s-drives?

The S-Drives are pretty good.
Fantastic Grip. More confidence. A bit better braking too ( not much difference though). The ride is a bit hard though but still as compared to the vRs , its amazing.

As for the CF finish , very true they aren't quite prominent but I love them

Nice Looking wheels, But i agree with Hellspawn, CF look not prominent infact in the second pic they look like black wheels only.

@Abhinav: Your vRS is in top notch condition, but whats with this?? So many scratches ,dents etc, no ORVM. Spend some money on getting the condition right rather than the wheels LOL

nice wheels @abhinav, The CF finish can't really be seen that well. The tyre and wheels look like one piece. Maybe getting the break callipers and drum painted will make the wheels look out.

Oh, yes almost forgot NHC.
Since the wheels are black the only good color i can think of is red or chrome silver(chrome silver available as paint).

The wheels on my car are hyperblack and i chose red.
