Thanks! Yeah they are 16"s. Even I had plans of lowering the car but when 3 or 4 people are sitting in the car, the underbelly scrapes the speed bumps sometimes.
That's a problem that all Hondas have barring the CR-V. Unfortunately, there isn't much one can do about that! Did you consider Yoko-S Drives or CPC2s before going in for Bridgestones?

Good alloys!

I see, as the tire is a little bigger, its splashing mud on the bottom of the front door.

Is it good in long term? as that area will need to be constantly cleaned more rigorously than other area. Also can accelerate rusting?

I guess, good mud flaps are recommended?

IMO any car w/o mud flaps and nice set of footwear looks meaner and better than with them , no wonder cars like beemer , merc and other same gen cars come w/o them.

Maintenance of course can be a issue but i think it's worth it , i don't have mud flaps in any of my cars.

Thanks guys. yes had to settle with him but got a great deal too. And there were very less choices available in 14" with other dealers in 108 PCD. As usual Chrome or basic designs aka Star / AC Schnitzer.

Paid 15.5k after exchange with free BAG and free electronic air pump.

Actually that mud is from the stock tyres. The day we took delivery of the car it rained as soon as we walked out of the showroom. Mud Flaps are out of stock and will be there in a week or so.

I didn't had mud flaps in Alto and it makes the car look much better and meaner.

I hope they were there for the rear wheels. If not then you would be throwing some serious muck on the trailing car's windshield during wet road conditions. It is a safety hazard!

Stop the teasing.

Please post more daytime and better pictures.

BTW, any particular reason to go for MAXXIS?
I have tried them on my scorpio. Did not last very long. Sticking to GEOLANDARs now.

This may sound anti petrohead'ish but i have to say it.

I'm fed up of alloys. After seeing every other car (read: hatchback) with alloys i am beginning to get fed up of alloys. OEM alloy designs suck. And most of the aftermarket ones also do the same sadly. Most alloys are totally mismatched with the cars they are fitted on to.

Some OEM alloys i love:
1. Fiat 1.6 palio's alloys.
2. SKoda vRS.
3. Ford Mondeo.

OEM alloys i don't like(Personal opinion)
1. Ritz Zxi
2. ANHC (like it was designed just to have alloy wheels)
3. Chevy Cruze.

Woooops! Of course its your personal opinion and looks are subjective but I found them to be blending very well with the car. Member Gandhi's car is on this thread and the car looks fantastic. Anyway in the looks department to each, his own.

Saw these mammoth 22 inch wheels on Endy.

Tyres are Pirelli 305/40-R22
He has fitted those cheap LEDs in the tyres.

As I was told, this is supposed to be his 4th set on his car in past couple of months.
Additional it had 4 Infinity subs and ICE setup between 1.5-2L.
PS. This is not my car, spotted it in sector - 28, Chandigarh.
