Mahindra Thar is one of the most popular 4×4 SUVs in the market. The previous generation Thar was popular among off-road enthusiasts and we have seen several modified examples of the same online. In fact, finding a previous generation Mahindra Thar without any  modification is quite hard. One of the most common type of modification seen on previous generation Thar were aftermarket alloy wheels. Many of them modify their Thar to enhance the off-road capabilities while many did modifications to make it look more premium.
