I agree with you on that one, plus what is the point of driving a car so low, when you have to replace the oil pan every few months

Nicely done chinh, I love the 197's and hope to own a set soon. What size tires did you go with and can you shoot an image showing how flush they are to the fender? Remember, imitation is the more sincere form of flattery.

Really don't think these suit the car, let alone fit.

Also, the car NEEDS to be dropped to pull of the look with these wheels, and
if it was dropped, it would rub badly on the rears.

Not sure if that's possible with an XI

I would sell them on, and get something more suited.
