Default Spinners for Accent

Hi Guys,

I want to install spinners on my accent and desperately need to know the following.

1. Can I get spinners for 13 inch rims. I am planning to buy 13's so I can use my stock tyres.

2. What would be the cost

3. Where in Gurgaon / Delhi can I buy this from

Thanks

I'm not sure what the trend is there, but it looks like spinners are not really in vogue anymore.You'd see them on one odd car/SUV, but thats it.

I'd recommend going with good looking regular style alloys.Classy looking,without the ghetto touch of the spinners.

AFAIK
spinners commonly start from 15" rim size
and as advised earlier,drop the thought of spinners and get decent 14 or 15" rims for your car

I've seen spinners on 13" wheels too,that too on old battered Lincolns & Geo Metros!

Thedreamcatcher,a good 6-spoke alloy would look good.What color is your car?

Very right , they do look cool but for a short period of time only . They dont last long and even cost more than normal alloys

Avoid spinners like a plague! They will compromise the handling of your car. Wheel alignment / balancing comes with its own set of issues too.
