Plati, HR, League, Eagle, ST, Neo are the ones you will find common.

I would say if you are going for alloys try to stick to 13" and 5J width but if u cant find good 5J width rims in 13" then go for 5.5J but keep the tyre size to 155/70/R13 or 155/65/R13 otherwise the tyres will scrap as rim width is more.

almost all alloy makes and design for alto you will get within 15k, except OZ.
i still havent put any alloys. i am waiting for the tyres to wear out. then i will change both rims and wheels. i dont have funds right now.i spent it on ICE.
but i would suggest you plati. HR are also good. but people have suggested me go for 13" and 5j instead of 5.5 J as they scrap with full load in alto.
if u are planning for the tyres change too like i am planning then i think you should hunt for low profile tyres on 13" alloys so that they dont scrap. also they look good.

Hey guys,

I want some info on changing the air filter in my car. I am not sure how to go about it...do i go for stock replacement or something else?? and what about the difference in the air intake? will the ECU have to be set up accordingly?

And the FFE, will it be loud that it might be disturbing on long continuous drives??

Hi Ramsagar,
You are right. Its very difficult to drive Alto with A/C especially in city traffic. From dealers I came to know that Alto has the powerful A/C in the segment [no idea about the exact specification], so it sucks more powers then the other.
Recently I replaced stock air filter with K & N air filter. It is comparatively better now.

I have the VXI version 1.1 Alto that has VIPER FFE installed along with conical filter. You can try to source through our own team bhpian viper (jignesh) if you want to consider FFE options other than automech. so are you planning for 3x1 headers or the popular 4x2x1?
