the good thing with the launch of the sx4 is that 15-17"rims and tyres will get cheaper and you will find a lot of sx4 oe rims in the market.
whats the pcd of a sx4
sx4 pcd is 114.3 and 5 holes

the zxi had alloys music system abs and few other things

i had got the alloys and even the music system
a clarion VRX 779VD. For city driving i thought
would not need abs and it would be ok without climate control

so i decided to go for the vxi

Yes it is. Very weird this. While almost all other cars are going 100 PCD 4 lug. Finding alloys for the SX4 wont be that easy. Choices will be limited.

If you notice, everyone is shifting to 114.3 x 5. Like the Accords, the Camrys, the Civics, the CRVs etc. So your theory is wrong.
