Guys,

Its finally done..... The rims are on the car today morning at 10:30am and the RIM and car looks FANTASTIC together. Ok! ok! I know I know pictures pictures pictures... Will take a couple of pictures tonight with the flash on and later during the weekend will take some day pictures for you guys to feast your eyes on. :)) Iam very happy with the way it looks. I have Yoko's ES100 205/55/15 and it looks great. Iam also planning to have the writing on the Tyres painted in yellow. Close to the shade used on Ricky's car hope it looks good and any suggestions on the same is most welcome.

Very nice... well done dude!
And I agree with vid... paint the drums black.
How's the ride? Any trouble with the 55 (low) profile Yokos... harshness, discomfort etc?
And any fouling of the tyres with the wheel arches when loaded or turning the steering all the way?

The ride is perfectly fine, I dont find it that bad. I had all my old tyres docked on the rear seats and with enough weight to lower the car down a bit and the bad news is yes when over a ditch or speed breakers the tyres scrap the arch :( But I guess with just me in the car most of the time, I can live with it for a while .

hmmm. that's kinda surprising.

I wonder if Sam and Elf have the same problem. how much is the offset of the alloys?

Its surprising to hear that the rear tyres are scrapping.!!

Is it scrapping on both sides?
