vicky - Same pinch! I have SC-01 Grey on my Grey Swift. How much did the combo cost ? Did you buy 4 or 5 alloys ?

Talking

@pulsar56, @quickdraw, @chipfoose, @zerocritical, @badboyscad, @vicky5669, @sanjz, @jkdas: Thank you for your comments.

@vicky5669: Those whells look AWESOME!! Very nice choice.

The overall ride has definitely improved, in terms of handling, cornering and control. I got the new set two weeks ago and since then I’ve been gliding all the way. The wheels are very light in weight, and the overall design is very attractive.

Cost Details

Bridgestone Potenza GIII Tyres – Rs. 2750 x 4 = Rs. 11000
Konig Wheels – Rs. 3450 x 4 = 13800
Total Cost – Rs. 24800

I got the set installed at Bombay Tyres.

Address - Malekar Compound Milan Subway, Santacruz West, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Contact Person - Vicky, Ph - 9820031602

@nishantgandhi: Although PREETI TRADING CORPORATION is the distributor they do not stock wheels. They have only one dealer in Bombay ie: Bombay Tyres. I checked the other outlets of Bombay Tyres at Dahisar and Kandivali, however got the best deal at Santacruz. The other outlets did not stock Konig.

Default Finally gotthe Momo Alloys Wheels for my Fiesta

Hi Guys,

After a very long wait, I finally got the set of Momo Ten S alloys for my Fiesta 1.6 SXi. Though I had wanted to get Momo Corse Silver for the car, I finally settled for Momo Corse Ten S.

To go with the alloys, I have put on Michelin Pilot Preceda 2 (PP2) tyres in size 195/55/R15.

The ride quality has definitely improved ... so has the handling, which in any case has been Fiesta's strenghth.

Hope you like the pictures.

Cheers

Jaskirat

Jaskirat, excellent and mean looking alloys. What is the price of those alloys? Can you post a close up shot of those alloys?
