The new generation Mahindra Thar is certainly one of the most popular SUVs of recent times. The all-new 2020 Mahindra Thar was launched in India just a few weeks ago and there is a lot of buzz around it. People are very impressed with the all-new Thar as it is truly a great machine. What’s further icing on the cake is that recently it has bagged an impressive 4 Star Safety Rating in the Global NCAP Crash Test. We all know that Thar owners love to modify their favourite off-roader. Today, we have for you, not just one, but two all-new 2020 Mahindra Thar that have been modified with dope-looking 22-inch alloy wheels.
The first Thar, as you can see in the above image, is finished in Napoli Black shade and gets humongous 22-inch alloy wheels. The alloys get a ten-spoke pattern and have a shiny texture. These are 22-inch RPM alloy wheels and they really enhance the aesthetic appeal of this already handsome-looking SUV. Next, we have another Thar SUV that has been retrofitted with 22-inch alloy wheels. It is also finished in Napoli Black colour and is a convertible SUV. While the above Thar had ten-spoke alloys with a glossy finish, this one gets 22-inch machined-cut dual-tone Victor alloy wheels. Both the dual-tone one as well as the glossy alloys look really good and are enormous.
