Tata Harrier is undoubtedly the most exciting SUV in the segment right now. It has gained immense popularity in the market and has garnered over 10,000 bookings. A lot of customers have started receiving the delivery of the Harrier too and many of them have started customising the vehicle. Here is one such modified SUV owned by Anil Khanna, who has swapped the stock alloy wheels with aftermarket 19-inch wheels and it looks quite good.
The stock version of the Tata Harrier gets 17-inch alloy wheels and they do look quite good on the SUV but the larger wheels take the looks to a different level. As per Mr Anil, the four alloy wheels cost Rs 75,000 after he exchanged the stock alloy wheels. The before and after pictures show how exactly the overall stance and looks of the vehicle change.
Upgrading the wheels can affect the ride and handling of the vehicle and even the speedometer and odometer readings get affected due to the change of size. However, as per Mr Khanna, the vehicle has become sturdier post the transformation and there is enough gap between the wheel and the body of the Harrier, which ensures that the bigger size rims do not touch the vehicle’s body.
While buying aftermarket alloy wheels, one should always be careful of the brand and quality of the wheels. Low-quality aftermarket alloy wheels can break and cause massive accidents. It is always advisable to stick to branded alloy wheels and not to choose the replica wheels, which are much more affordable than the original ones but are not the mark when it comes to quality.
