Alloy wheels are a good option in cars and most modifiers opt for the same. It enhances the look of the vehicle and also brings out the truest form of the car. However, not everyone can afford alloys and often people lookout for easy ways to give the same look. Today we have an example of Hyundai Venue where the owner has crafted his creativity into turning the wheel caps into alloys and that too in just Rs 230.
Before we go any further and bring you the exact details on how he did it, make sure you are a member of our exclusive 91Wheels Whatsapp group where we share latest updates happening in the Indian Automotive Industry.
The owner, Dhanajit Maibam owns a Hyundai Venue S model and has crafted out his imagination in bringing out this fine work. The S model of the Venue is available in all three engine options that are 1.2L naturally aspirated petrol, 1.0L turbo petrol and 1.5L oil burner. He owns the 1.2L one which makes as much as 82 bhp with 114 Nm of peak torque and this engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
But one thing is sure that he crafted the alloy wheels pretty decently. And the total cost accounts for just Rs 230. In this, he purchased the black spray paint for Rs 200 and Rs 30 silver tape.
He has also explained the process that first he removed all the wheel caps and then wiped them with a clean cloth. Thereafter he used sunlight to dry them up evenly and then tape the portion which needs to be white or light grey according to you. Now, spray paint the entire surface along with the taped one and let it dry. Once it is dried then remove the tape and voila. You got yourself new alloy wheels lookalike.
What's interesting is that he even craved out the Hyundai logo too like found in the OEM alloy wheels. I am sure he did this with a sharp object so to remove the paint from that specific area. The end result is surely something to look at. The wheel caps looks the same as OEM design and that too in a budget.
The top-spec SX, SX(O) and SX Plus are the variants to get 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. Rest of the variants offer 15-inch tyres with wheel caps. This process really makes us wonder that what people can do with their imagination and bring out the good and decent looks from their vehicles.
