Hey,

I think you need to specify Alloy Look Alikes. They are available in plenty of designs here in Mumbai and start @ Rs200/- set of 4 onwards.

I'm more interested in the second-hand alloys that come in from the East. Any clues on those?

Is the caps covering the Wheels completely then i think its not a good move since it will block all the air in it and lead to poor braking.

The wheel caps where cut into star shape to give an alloy look.. behind those caps is black paper n i hope doesn't obstruct that much of air to affect braking..

i think we can paint the rim black or make a few holes n the black paper.
