Default Re: Chevy Fans: New Chevy Beat Z-Spec Concept and latest accessories

Dear Chevy Beat Fans
This is the thread that got me back on Team BHP

I intend to buy a Beat in next 4 Weeks. Negotiating with dealers
This is one car that really managed to catch my fancy

I intend to replace the wheels with Alloys immediately.
After my research I found out that the stock tires are 155/70 which I intend to replace with 175/65 for 4.5 J alloy!

my question is

1 - Has anyone of you have replaced the wheels to Alloys
2 - Has anyone upgraded to 14" to 15 "
3 - Lastly, is it ok to run the same stock tires which is (155/70 ) on a set of brand new alloys which is 4.5 J

Any response will be of great help

Cheers!

As I am in the car buying mode and looking for best deal on Beat , i have frequented 5 dealerships
1 - Ambala
1 - Gurgaon
3 - Delhi

All have been quoting different rates

Remote keyless entry @ 3 K
Front Power Windows @ 5K ( for PS model)
Interior Black Carbon finish for dash board @ 1K
Parcel tray @ 500Rs
Spolier with integrated red light @ 2K

I am enquiring for alloys ,but I think they have very limited options
Also, I intend to purchase a black beat with black alloys
but the stock alloys are quoted at 12 K for an upgrade

14x4.5J will be available only with GM.
But when you are buying it as an accessory, why don't you consider 14x5.5J or 14x6J - which are widely available in the market and also you will get wide variety of designs.
I am using the stock tyre on a 14x5.5J aftermarket alloy. Check my thread for details:http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ml#post1832588 (Chevrolet Beat LT Cocktail Green: Initial ownership report)
One more advantage will be the track width gets increased which will reduce the body roll slightly - check the side by side comparison of 4.5 and 5.5 wide wheels in page#9.

Also more info on beat tyres and wheel upgrade: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...-upgrades.html

Exclamation Re: Chevy Fans: New Chevy Beat Z-Spec Concept and latest accessories

You are rigth Sablin
But I am just scared about one thing

No matter how much I am obssessed with Beat, I have to admit it is undertired - 155/70

secondly the stock comes at 4.5J

If I try to use stock with 5.5J will it work?

I mean what about the mileage?

I am not quite sure, is it doable?

The wheels may even stick out

Hi Parishrut. If you read his post, you will see that 5.5 J on a Beat is now tried and tested. It is doable, better road grip, lesser body roll and it sticks out, but not something that is obscenely obvious

@Sablin & @Dreamcatcher

So I will do 14" 5.5 J with stock tires.
Thanks for your advice

I am having sleepless nights since I am bout to book a Beat PS (base) and get tire upgrades and stuff like that from the market.

It is Dec and the time has come that I take the plunge...All this while I was into banks, loans & documents and now I can think more openly about ICE & Wheels

Thank you so much
