Nice rims. I must add, those tyres are very impressive.

Shuvc.. IMO I think a good 15inch alloy should have 5 / 6 spokes, nothing wrong in showing the drum. Everyone know other than the RS maybe Accord most cars have drum at the rear. IMO does notlook ugly.

I think too many spokes on a alloy looks ugly.

On a 16 or 17 size more spokes look good. options like the BMW/RS designs




Black pearl,
something like the one below will go well on a black baleno


Do you guys think this will go well with a silver baleno?

Rj sorry missed your post .... Am still right here.. just waiting for the weekend.

The GTR which you have upgraded to is a really good option. I too like it and picked it from a Lenso catalog months back. However now am eyeing the NZ which I posted above.

Disclaimer: Again this is very long term plan :( so I should stop blabbering now.

The NX isnt still available here is what I heard. I had checked that also.

Infact I found these models to fit the bill perfectly for a baleno.

FT-5 , GC-2(for white baleno's), GT05, GT-6 and GTR(what I have) .
All these models are lighter when compared to the regular models from Lenso.

From what I hear you can order any model of Lenso or League from their catalog -- give it a few days and they will get it from where ever :(

not really ?

NX is already available. Have seen it around in 15 and above.

If you guys are so worried about the rear drum, get a rear disc setup, off the 800's front, why don't you?

v1p3r you are kidding right? Thats possible? Thats one cool mod which I have not seen. any pics of the same? how much would the parts and labour cost?

Whats with the deal with the rear drum showing ? I dont think its that bad.

Also
a) Painting the front calipers red (/ yellow) - nice / not nice?
b) Painting the rear drum not too nice I think.

PD

Those are HR (A taiwanese brand). Apollo makes alloy wheels?? I didnt know that!! Frost looks good.. whats the cost?

OT: anyone knows if HR has a website? These Taiwanese companies arent so smart when it comes to online marketing..

blackpearl-the black rim with mirror lip which ironwolf suggested is amazing, the one in my baleno is outdated now.
