Car looks ok, but 1 doubt. e has kept the stock spare tire cover. How can a 20" fit in that? or is the spare still normal size???

The sponsor of those wheels IMO would be an orthopedic surgeon, did the car have an advt for the doctor ???? Just kidding - but the ride quality would surely be for the brave hearted !!!!!!!!!! Or strong boned...

Cheers

As you increase the rim size and tyre width you go low on the profile.

I think LBM is talking about the sidewall of the tyres not the width of the tyre.

Endeavour looks impressive on 20 inch wheels, but the choice of rims could be better! Ride would be reduced to a big extent, adding to the already-low ride quality on the Endeavour.

Somehow one of the pictures makes the Endeavour look like one of those American SUVs which are known as Gas Guzzlers?? Saw it somewhere in Team-BHP.

I was expecting a stonker but am not too happy with his choice of wheels. They also look unproportionately huge for the Endy.

One of the best Endeavours I have seen to date belongs to some action (Upen Patel??). Very tastefully done up.

Looks very bling and gangsta types. I've also seen a new gen CRV with similar wheels and ultra low-pro tires near my office but couldnt get any pics.

Wonder why people go in for low profiles on a SUV ? Wouldnt more rubber make it look macho or is it the other way round ?

Fat / wider rubber on an SUV is very common. Low profiles make them look bling and gangster types. As there are not much of these around they sure do turn heads, but at the cost of comfort and ride quality. I love the bling look though.
