Cool The official alloy wheel show-off thread. Lets see your rims!

Spent a fortune on new wheels? Want to show them to us? This is the thread for that. Lets have some good photographs of your car's wheels & tyres.

Remember, this is only for your car's wheels, and NOT for random photographs taken from the net. Also, to keep things in check, a maximum image size of 800x600 please.

It would help if you give some details on them as well:
Brand/Model
Size
Price
Car

C'mon, don't feel shy now.

To kick off, here's what I am currently running:

Brand: OE Skoda RS Wheels
Size: 16", 6.5J
Price: (used) Rs.15,000/- (with GS-D2 Tyres at the time)
Current Tyres: Yokohama AVS Sport

Nice pics, Rtech, JK, Mclaren & Akshay.

Can you please also add how many wheels you bought, 5 or 4.

Akshay - 23k for those rims are pretty expensive.
