But this is not all, the vehicle is equipped with 245/35R19 Dunlop blow-up "Sport Maxx" tyres on the front axis and 285/30R19 ones – on the rear axis. As an alternative option, there are also FlowForming Crosslight ATS rims of the same size.
The braking system of the car consists of 370 mm discs made by Mov'it, which deliver perfect braking.
