@Krishna - Beautiful! The alloys matches the car very well. Congrats!!! The red calipers look neat in the front. Painting the rear drums are not to my taste. Anyways your car looks great!

Krishna, excellent choice. The alloys go really well with your car. Btw, how much did the 14" A-Drives cost you? What size are they?

Hey, 14k for 5 14" Neos is a great price! Was it a special price or are Neos really that cheap?

thanks guys, tho personally feel that low profile would suit her and the wheels better. anyways she's just off the dealer might just opt for low profiles and see.
