Mahindra Thar is without any doubt one of the most popular 4×4 SUV currently on sale in Indian market. It is the most affordable 4×4 SUV in the market. It is a capable off-roader and we have seen several videos and images of the same online. Many Mahindra Thar owners have already modified their SUVs to give it a unique look. Many opted for modifications that enhance the off-road abilities and there are some who went for cosmetic upgrades that give it a different look on the road. Here we have one such Mahindra Thar that has been modified with a massive 26 inch aftermarket alloy wheel.
The video has been uploaded by Modified Club on their YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger talks about all the modifications and customisations that are done to the Mahindra Thar. At the front, the stock grille on this Thar has been replaced with an aftermarket unit. The halogen headlamps have been replaced with an aftermarket projector headlamp unit.
The headlamp comes with integrated LED DRLs and the fog lamps are LED units too. The SUV currently has the stock bumper but, it will soon be replaced with a Wrangler-like aftermarket unit. The main attraction on this Mahindra Thar are the wheels. Mahindra offers 18 inch alloy wheels in the LX trims. Those wheels have been replaced with an massive 26 inch alloy wheel. The black and machine cut dual tone aftermarket alloy wheels on the SUV look different from everything that we have seen so far. This is probably the first Thar in India to get such a treatment. The wheels are wrapped in low profile Chinese tyres.
The tyres are currently rubbing against the bumper slightly and that is expected to be resolved after the bumper is changed. The car also gets a 26 inch alloy wheel as spare tyre but, the vendor is yet to arrange a 26 inch tyre for the spare wheel as it is an odd size. The rear bumper gets reflctor lamps and the tail lamps have been slightly smoked out. Moving in, the Mahindra Thar gets custom fit seat covers, 7D floor mats, armrest for both front and rear passengers and so on.
The wheels definitely looks unique and definitely attract a lot of eyes on the road. We have mentioned it several times in other stories that getting larger wheels installed on the car can bring early wear and tear to some of the components like the suspension and other parts. The ride quality of the Mahindra Thar will also be affected heavily. As the car is now riding on low profile tyres, the owner has to be careful and he cannot drive it over broken roads at higher speeds as there are chances that the wheels might get broken.
The car cannot be taken off-road for the same reason. The tyres won’t offer any grip in tricky terrains. The handling is also affected due to these large wheels. Mahindra Thar is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol version uses 2.0 litre mStallion turbocharged engine and the diesel version uses a 2.2 litre mHawk turbocharged engine. Both engine options are available with manual and automatic transmission options.
