I think you are the first person to say that! The stock wheel/tyre combo is just too small for the Optra. But, I guess everyone has a different idea about looks so thats cool

Are you suggesting regular steel disk or some different looking alloy?

Rt,

i was only speaking abt the look factor ....even if u up the rim size..imo the stock rims with the wheel caps will look better....than alloys

and yeah rudra....i feel the alloys not gelling with the optra cud be due to the large boot ? wat say

Due to large boot??? Don't know pal. I'm really confused, cause I'm thinking of 15 inch rim instead of OE 14 inch

I think 16 inchers would do justice to the Optra's wheel arches. However, ride quality would suffer quite a bit.
