Sidhu Moosewalla is currently one of the popular Punjabi singer in the country. We are all aware that people from Punjab like to modify their vehicles especially the wheels. We have seen several videos and pictures of SUVs and sedans from Punjab that are modified with massive aftermarket wheels. Sidhu Moosewalla is no different. He recently visited Punjab’s popular Velocity Tyres to get a set of new alloy wheels for his Toyota Fortuner. Check out the video to find out which wheels did he choose for his SUV.
The video has been uploaded by Dayakaran vlogs on his YouTube channel. In this video vlogger talks to a representative of Velocity tyres about the tyre sizes and it also shows the variety of wheels that are available at the store. There were several vehicles parked outside the store. They had arrived at the store to get the alloys changed. One of the SUV in the parking area was a Toyota Fortuner pre-facelift version. The SUV had arrived at the dealership for an alloy update. The SUV belongs to Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewalla.

He already had a set of aftermarket wheels on his Fortuner but, it looks like he was planning to change the look. The video then shows Sidhu Moosewalla inside the tyre shop. He goes through a variety of wheels that are available at the store and then finalises two of them. He selects an all-black alloy wheel from Black Rhino and a dual tone unit from some other brand. The Black Rhino units were giving the SUV an butch or rugged look but, the singer decided to go with the dual tone option.
The alloys and wheels seen here in the video are 20 inch units. The tyres on this Fortuner were also replaced at part of the upgrade. It now gets All-Terrain tyres from Yokohama. In the video, vlogger also shows a Mahindra Scorpio which gets 20 inch alloy wheels in Silver colour. This is a multi-spoke unit and according to Velocity tyres, this is a new design. In the video, before finalising the wheels and tyres, for Fortuner, Sidhu Moosewalla can be seen going through all the tyres and alloy wheels.
Large alloy wheels like the one installed on Fortuner in this video definitely helps in enhancing the look of the car but, there are some negatives to this as well. Installing bigger and wider tyres and wheels on and SUV affects the handling. It also affects the fuel efficiency and the braking performance. Another thing that is affected due to large alloy wheels is the ride quality or comfort. In this case, Sidhu has not opted for low profile tyres. Low profile tyres completely ruin the driving experience. Low profile tyres may look excellent on some cars but, they are not always the best if you want ride comfort. Toyota Fortuner seen here in the video is a pre-facelift model with new Legender like LED tail lamps. The SUV is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. Diesel version gets 4×4 option and both petrol and diesel are available with manual and automatic transmission option.
