I like the look of those, though I suppose the low profiles will stiffen up the ride quite a bit

fine line for using red on brakes as they highlight how small they are on certain cars, i generally think if you are going aftermarket alloys you need to factor in a drop

I presume this car has had discs fitted to the rear wheels.

Nope.. look at the last picture, the "drums" are clearly painted red as well.

Looks great but it's not for our Polish "suspension test drive" roads

I'm not so keen on the wheels in the picture - they look like they are on the verge of protruding over the edge of the wheel arches, particularly at the front. The ride quality would definitely suffer and the turning circle would probably be larger too.

Does the up have disc brakes at the back then? As looking at the photo's it would appear that the rear wheels have red calipers behind them as well as the fronts.
