    I got her last August, it's about time I post some pictures of my lady Grovel Express (hat tip to anyone who fully understands where the name comes from. Aussies should have it easy :D)

    This is the dark grey color, with matching mirror covers (which are not available in Benelux. I ordered those from japanparts), and STI pack (it was in promo when I ordered her ; paid ~450€ for the pack without gearknob)

    She's currently riding on gunmetal Rota Gravel 18x8, and I also have Team Dynamics Monza in PowerSilver color for winter tires.

    Very nice indeed, what tyres are you running with the 18x8 rims 235/45R18?

    running stock size, just went for tires with rim protection. I've gotten Dunlop Sport Maxx RT 2 225/45R18 for summer.
    Winter, the owner manual states we should use 17, so I got Dunlop Winter Sport 5 215/50R17 (on 17x7)

    I had a look at the table on page https://www.pneus-online-belgique.be/equivalence-des-pneus-conseils.html, which states 225 is completely fine, like 235 as well. Figured out (maybe wrongly) that stock size would be fine :p
