Ok boys, here we go...
Alloys - HR H109s 14"
Tyre - Pirelli P400 185/70 14"
Cost - 12,800/- for Set of 4
Installation
Got it done at Saifee Tyre Service, Santacruz. I honestly did not expect much from them but these guys have a really good setup and are good at what they do. The above price includes mounting, wheel balancing and wheel alignment. The alignment was off so they spent an extra hour on the car getting it fixed, honest of them...

The pictures, feel free to drool

Zahir, 36 and 33 is too much for that tyre size. Dont u bounce around in the entire car ?

I keep 32 in the front and 30 behind.

36 and 33 are for the stock tyre size and not for the updgraded 185/70/R14

Yeah, aesthetically, they look awesome. Functionally too, better grip and better braking so I'm happy...

Yeah dude, I realized that. Tried 34F adn 32R after talking to a few ppl on the forum. Found it oddly bouncy so keeping 33F and 31R. Happy so far...

there is confusion about this what pressure one should maintain, try 32psi or 30psi.

sms language is not allowed on the forum like u = you so better be careful next time when typing
