Check out the VW Virtus’ enormous modified with 18-inch alloy wheels. After Taigun, Virtus is the second Volkswagen product built on the MQB A0 IN platform, which is unique to India. The cost of a sedan and a mid-size SUV has decreased, as well as the cost of service, maintenance, and replacement parts, thanks to the over 90% localized content. However, many people enjoy making modifications to their cars, particularly when using oversized aftermarket wheels. This is one such illustration.
Ravityres Amritsar uploaded the video clip to Instagram. It displays a white Virtus with XL-sized alloy wheels installed. The wheels are so wide that it appears as though they are protruding from the body. The Virtus’ top trim comes with 16-inch stock tyres. Therefore, this upgrade is quite obvious. The white colour of the Virtus is nicely complemented by the multi-spoke design pattern in silver. In fact, these alloys are certain to look fantastic with almost all of the available Virtus colours. Just these new alloys alone significantly improve the sedan’s aesthetics.
On the other hand, the ride quality suffers as a result of the large wheels. It’s because low-profile tyres have a thick sidewall but a wider surface. As a result, the cushioning effect is significantly diminished. As a result, the cabin is open to the potholes and bumps, which degrades the ride experience. That is the cost associated with mounting oversized alloys. Additionally, the weight is increased, which reduces mileage. Before choosing too large wheels for any car, all of these factors must be taken into account.
