Yeah karan don't think I wanna go in for a stiffer ride quality, I can feel the road in my stomach as it is so don't wanna worsen it. Besides, my current ones offer amazing road grip.

Whitevdi, my man, your like a voice of reason! Thanks for all the advice over time the reason I was considering 15"(which is now out) is because good 10 spokes don't seem to be made in 14". Guess ill have to keep looking.

Have to say, great car and great choice of colour. I was planning on getting a white swift, but I think I'm going to get a white civic instead.

Thanks for sharing the info and prices on your parts, it's a great help for people that don't stay in India.

some excellent looking design that you have shortlisted.
will surely look good on the car,but do we get these design in 14" oz,momo.
as for spoiler it a personal taste you like then but i don't.

"spoiler" the word itself,contains the word"spoil"

Ya apparently you do get a lot of choice in 14. Spoke to the dealer, sent him the pics already. He said it might take a bit but he'll source them. He's already ordered a few samples for me in white. Other option is get them in silver and powder coat them + seal the color to white.

Hey dude, thanks for the tip, I called them, got the dealer in Bombay, spoke to him and he has them in 14". 16000 for 5 wheels. I think its a steal. Apparently h109s are patented Ferarri design.

Now its just a waiting game...
