You can convert to alloys. Best to stick to stock 18". Users say it is lighter. I never felt any difference though apart from it being trendy. Go to a good auto dealer to buy the alloys.

Hello badboy,

You can get your alloys/ tyres at Alibhai Premji Marg, nr Alibhai's showroom. Next to it theres a famous tyrewalla who has a wide range. Check it out with them.

What kind of modifiacation do you mean? Kindly elaborate.

Cheers!!!

South Bombays biggest 2 wheeler market is there. Oppo Minerva cinema, Grant Road (East).
BTW where are you located? If you are in the suburbs, you wont know I suppose.

Anyways, check it out.

@badboy i would suggest you not to go for alloys/mags, coz alloys/mags don't really look gud on 100cc bikes specially the rx. What i would suggest, would be to go for the yezdi rim and tyre at the rear, also front if you don't mind loosing 2-3kmpl !! . They look gud and handling well too.

Hey badboy, please dont change to alloy wheels dude, the look wont suit an RX in my opinion, because it is a classic kinda bike, and looks best with wire wheels.

Its just my opinion though, its your opinion that matters in the end, just my two paise....

The name of RX100 goes down the drain if you do this. RX100 is an performance bike. Dont try mileage antics on it. Get a splendor instead.
