seems stalion seat cover is not as good as what i had in my wagonR.
I donno the brand but we stiched newly for the car and the fitting was very neat and clean.
check my Garage photos.
After 3 years,it looks like a new one.
so i prefer to go the my Freind's shpp for seat cover.

Please let me know the GetZ Crdi rims offset.

I enquired some many people regarding fitting Verna Crdi Sx ABS stock rims in GetZ Crdi.
Verna Crdi Sx ABS stock rims are 14 inches and 5.5J and 100PCD.
But Hyundai techincal guys tols it won't fit in GetZ.
They haven't had knowledge in PCD and offset issues.
Please let me know whether it's possible to fit Verna Crdi Sx ABS stock rims in GetZ Crdi.
I want to upgrade to 195/14/60 tyres without going for alloys.

Getz CRDi's Offset is 38. It's a 14" Rim with 100 PCD and 5.5J. I am quite sure the Verna's Offset is different, though the other specs are the same.
Any strong reason you want the rims of the Verna? Either ways, you aren't upsizing and the stock Verna rims aren't really eye candy, so whats the point?

You are correct about the Offset and PCD , but the rim size is 14" 5J only and not 5.5J

It's recommended min Width is 5.5J.
I heard the GetZ Crdi rims is 5J only.
so i planned to fix Verna stock rims which is 5.5J

You can go for 185/60R14 in Stock rims . The difference is 0.94% only. This size is available in Michelin XM1+. Next week i am going to buy alloys 14" 6J and fit Stock tires in it.

the problem in 185/60/14 is it reduces the GC by -5mm
so that i planned for 185/65/14,it increases GC by 13 mm
already GetZ GC is 160mm only added to 13mm increases 170+ na

Then you need to fit alloys (14" 6J) and go for 195/60R14 which i am planning to do .

yes i too searched for some good alloys.
But I am often going to my native.so alloys is not as good as stock rims.
If any puncture while travelling,those tyre wala's donno how to take away tyre from Alloys.they just used some iron rods and hammer.
Already we faced severe crack in Brother's verna alloys.
So i prefer Stock rims with maximum upsizing.
if it's not getting through then i go for alloys.
have you selected Alloy rims.
please share it to me.

I am forced to go for alloys as the rim width is 5J only . Else i would have fitted 195/60 in stock rims itself. I am planning to go for HR alloys . My friend bought 5 alloys for his baleno 14" 6J costing Rs.3500 per alloy. Not sure about the price now , i am going this weekend to check it out . Also i am little concerned about the fact that the stock tires are tube type and if i fit them in alloys , at times of puncture iron rods and hammer may come into play.
Your best choice in Stock rims is 185/60 .
