Large wheels on cars have become a trend these days; as a result, cars with massive wheels are becoming more and more popular. This is the first Mahindra XUV500 modified with such a massive set of alloy rims.
First launched in the Indian auto market in 2011, the Mahindra XUV500 has got several aesthetic and mechanicals update to increase its competitiveness in the fiercely-competitive SUV segment in India. Nevertheless, since its launch up to now, the Mahindra XUV500 runs on either plain 17-inch alloy wheels or 18-inch dual-tone alloy rims. These wheels are large enough to fill the wheel arches and polishing enough to highlight the car’s general attraction. Nonetheless, this does not follow the trend of big alloy rims, which is quite favoured by Indian customers nowadays. To satisfy the masses’ interests, recently, a car enthusiast has equipped the Mahindra XUV500 with a kit of 24-inch alloy rims.
This modified Mahindra XUV500 has been equipped with massive 24-inch alloy rims.
Disappointingly enough, we are not informed of the aspect ratio and the profile of the tyres that cover the wheels. Noteworthily, it is not easy to fit these rims to the XUV500 which owns different PCD from that on these mags. As a result, custom spacers have been utilized to fit these rims in place. While the entire modification seems rugged and extravagant, thanks to this, the XUV500 has been made outstanding from the crowd.
To fit these massive wheels to their place is not an easy task.
As regards the Mahindra XUV500’s mechanical specifications, the SUV now keeps under its hood a 2.2-litre mHaw turbo oil burner which can generate 155 PS against 360 Nm and is mated to a 6-speed MT/6-speed AT. With a view to making the SUV compliant with the more stringent BSVI emission standards, Mahindra has discontinued the AWD version of the SUV.
