Default Re: TATA - FIAT Palio Stile MJD : Crafted by FIAT specially for ME!

Guys, I am in a dilemma for choosing alloys for my Palio. To find 98 PCD alloys in Bangalore is a hell of a task. Its hardly available. My best bet is to source HR alloys from Sai Mag Wheels, Delhi. They have the best variety of alloys in 98 PCD. In fact they have 13 models in 14 inch 98 PCD. I have shortlisted 6 of them. Please let me know which one suits the best for my exotica red Palio. Note, all the alloys in stock are the regular silver finish, and I too am looking for this color.

+1 to that.

@Funkycar, why dont you go for the Palio OEM Alloys, they look Great..!!
And i think, they are easily available at the dealerships. As here in Mumbai i have seen them in 2 dealerships.

OEM alloys cost a bomb! It is 7-7.5k per alloy. A set of 5 will cost 35-37k. It looks great thought

^^^ Did you check out ByDesign's alloys? He has put HR alloys and they look good. Different from spoked alloys.

Oh yes! I am very well aware. Mr. ByDesign took a lot of pain to scan and send me the brochure of Sai Mag Wheels that had all the designs. I love the design of his mag. I dont know if it will suit my car that is red in color.

Congratulations funkycar.

Though this is just like any other Congratulatory post that you will find in this thread, it is NOT. I can't explain the emotions I am going through or the goose-bumps that passed my body when I saw the first pic of your car. My Mind & Heart started dreaming to own a similar red Palio Stile and I am hopelessly trying to avoid this violent twister.

Cherish every minute of this car.

From the set of alloys pics posted. I liked the 2nd and the 6th. Would look good in the gun metal shade.

Vignesh, in Palio Stile version, there wasn't a Green color available. It was in the Retro Palios, the one which you are referring. Also a Fern green used to be there.

For Dhamaka offer Palio Stiles, they have discontinued the existing colors and used the Punto colors. Good thought anyways!

The Palio looks hot in the Grey, Red and White shades of Punto

Sanjeevi,

The Palio OEM alloys comes in 14' size and not 13' and the Palio MJD has 13' rims!

Hearty Congrats Karthik :-) ..
No surprises, your Palio looks like any other Palio - Smart, gorgeous, beautiful, catchy, sexy, hot, muscular.!..

I would recommend the Palio sports alloys rather than any other alloys, or if u are able to get it then the Punto ones.
KHT retails the Palio sport alloys for 5 grands each.

Wow! This sounds very tempting. These are the original Fiat alloys, correct?
