______________ ______________ ______________ _____________

Yokohama S.Drive tires 205/55/R15 : Rs 2900/piece

He's offering a discount of 5000 if i give him the 4 OEM tires, which makes it
: Rs 6600

Plati alloy wheels (metallic not chrome) 15" : Rs 12,000

______________ ______________ ______________ _____________

Now what i wanted to ask you all, WILL I GET A BETTER DEAL IN DELHI??? possibly karol bagh or wherever!

At that price, the Alpine amp is certainly the fake one & also the prices for the tyres is too low even before exchange. are you sure these are not grey market or used ones??

Have you looked at the Tyres?
Seem fake for the price.
Retail for something around 4.5k here in Delhi.

Also the ICE prices are ok and no point coming to delhi to get it done as the difference aint that much. ( A few hundreds maybe)

For the alloys have you decided on the design
if not
Try Alloy Wheels, Car Alloy Wheels, Automotive Alloy Wheels, Chrome Alloy Wheels India

They can ship it to Chandigarh also.
One of the largest collection in India)

very true im sure that in chandigarh you would for sure get better stuff and not fakes. the tyre prices are way to low to be true my Appolo things cost me around 2200 or 2400 i think that was for 165/70/13.

if you want good stuff contact BK tyres in lajpat nagar for the tyres and rims. and for ICE i am sure from the forum you can see no one better than GUNBIR or LBM at least in delhi.

yes you are getting a good deal on audio in chandigarh,though i would suggest you try out various shops in delhi as there is more variety and options in alloy wheel designs.

You are getting some funny prices.

IMNSHO, I trolled all of KB for tyre upgrades for the Swift - the best I got was 1500, that too, IF I placed whole accesories etc order with that fella - else 1000 is what one gets for the swift's tyres in KB atleast!

Alpine 4 ch amp for 2.7K, man this is fake. They might cost 5 times to it actually. For swift, use components at front (5-6K range) instead of regular speakers. A decent JBL 608, Illusion electra, Bull audio etc will cost that.

I would suggest you to search ICE section and post your queris there.

As our tyrewalla ji - iraghava - told S drive prices are also too low. 2.9K for S drive? It is actually 4K +. As a whole it seems weired. Dont let dealers take you for a ride.

@Akshay - 1000 bucks for the whole frigging set. I was so ready to tear my hear out.

Why do you think I've not upgraded my tyres so far? :(

and yeah, those tyre prices are completely off. The cheapest again in KB, were the old Corolla's tyres some Bridgestone RE 88s(?) for some 3k apiece. Decent ones started 3400 apiece minimum.

I think searching for a bargain you went to some really wrong dealers. Stock Swift rubber has an exchange value of around 1000-1200 per tyre.
