iron wolf - are u still in chennai ?? there are places where u can get a set for dirt cheap...

if u go near sathyam cinema - u get decent tyres for around 1- 1.5k per piece

if ur on a still lower budget u can go to a place called puthupettai where u get for around 500bucks...

Ironwolf call for you, found a 4 months old set of Lenso 15 inchers with ES 100's lying there.

The price quoted was a steal . Pick them up if you want to.
Hey RJ is this at the seshadripuram place? I will call you later regarding this.

Narayan.. I used to live in Chennai remember. I know pudupet. Nothing is new about the place as the name suggests. Also dont park your car or bike there if its not going to be in your line of sight

I would have to drive to chennai to pick up a good set from there.

Anyway. I am going hunting this saturday, if any bangy boys free we can have a tire hunting drive

No probs Rj69.. Looks like you memorized their menu. I usually do such running around on the Yam ... Bangalore traffic esp saturday traffic pisses me off in the car. But if someone is joining me then we can go by car.

By they way those Lensos are similar to what I wanted.. With the spokes going in and a nice clean rim.. not sure how to explain it ,,but you got a good looking set.. how much did your 14s go for? PM if you want me.

Dammit no one else got any tires they want to get rid of ????

Daniel, I know a friend who might be selling his 14'' steel rims with some tires for about 4k (4 tires). Tires are pirelli's and have about 10k wear left I guess. Let me know if you are interested.

Humm I would have 2 sets of steel rims.. not a good equation. I will just wait for a worn set of 13s. Dont think I will be doing any long drives in a while.

I would take that deal if i were you. 4k for 4 tyres & rims is good, you can always switch back to your existing set anytime. Maybe bargain that to 3k & you got yourself a deal.

eeks you pervert .

Daniel like me and my frend said the other day. If you are on a budget right now pick up those 14 inchers Rahul has offered.
IMO its a really good deal.

My old alloys and GSD II's are on the lancer currently. I traded off the lancer's alloys and tyres ( Potenza GIII's) for the new set.

I cant disclose the price at which it was traded off, since Saravana gives me good deals when I go down for a swap. Adjust maadi please.

Now for the icing on the cake. The 2nd hand set of tyres and alloys I found there were the exact same GT-2 types Lenso alloys.

Had Yoko's ES 100's for tyres 195/60(?)/ R15 . Was traded off by a baleno owner itself.Tasty ???

Saar.. I already got 13inch steel rims. I dont want another set of 14 rims nd tires. When I get the 15s in about 5-6 months I will have a 3sets of rims and tires

No issues on non-disclosure.
Saravana here I come
