Hey!
It's e300d (this particular was imported from UK). Originally it had lowered height than Indian spec, but slight more than true euro spec.
In this setup, it has H&R sports lowering springs (these offers even more drop than normal H&R lowering springs) with custom shocks. It took me a few trials to get drop to my liking.

That's drop dead gorgeous. I love these alloys.

If I'm right, they were golden shade before? Do they remove the tires before re-painting them?

Where did you get them from and how much did you pay? They really look nice on the car.

Yes, Speedkills's wheels were painted in golden earlier. Both the shades do look absolutely gorgeous!

I believe the only way to paint rims are by taking the tyres off.

He had mentioned earlier that he had found these rims lying around in a local garage .

Just wow. Just the selection of alloys and the colour of them has transformed what was one of the dullest coloured Figo's into a smoking hot car. Tastefully done. I almost thought it was a KL car.

Your car looks stunning. Good call on the color of alloys. They compliment color of car well. That custom golden paint on alloys took the car to an other level.

Alloys look great when they are wrapped in Yokohama tyres. May be because of the styling or grip pattern of Yokos, they look much better than other tyres in the market.

Got my Creta SX last week and changed the tyres and rims straight from showroom. Changed to Michelin Primacy 4ST 215/60/R17 and MOMO Revenge Evo.

I think the MOMOs go really well with the Creta

Changed the tyres and rims yesterday from the stock rubbish Apollo Acceleres to Hankook Ventus V8 RS's (205/55/R15) rocking Plati PY-112's. Marked improvement in cornering, even at low city speeds. Bumps simply swallowed.
