Hi ab1xlr8, I am most impressed by the close scrutiny that you have done of the picture that I posted of my Fiesta with Momo Ten-S. These alloys are 100% genuine Momos.

Infact white_vdi has been very specific with his reasons for them being original. Further to what white_vdi has already mentioned, I would like to add the following:

a) The holes look bigger in case of wheels on my car because these are 15" multi PCD alloys (100 + 108) as opposed to 17" alloys in the other picture. Purely a case of relative size difference. Morever, a 5 mounting hole alloys are normally single PCD.

I am attaching a picture of a Fiat Grande Punto with a 4 hole multi-pcd Ten S taken from MOMO website gallery. MOMO Italy - Official Web Site (Scroll down to the last picture in the gallery)

b) The name 'MOMOCORSE' on the wheel centre is on a cap that is press fit and is removed during wheel balancing. After wheel balancing the mechanics normally do not care to align these the way it is done in the advertising picture. It can always be made in line by removing and realigning.

More important sign is the engraving on the edge of the alloy a point already highlighted by white_vdi.

c) Finally the source of purchase is also certified and taken from the MOMO website i.e., EDRA S.r.l MOMO Italy - Official Web Site

Their authorized dealer in India is Kumar's of Bangalore. (Mr. Navin Kumar Kota - 9886003036). In fact Kumar's have a MOMO advertisement in this months Overdrive.

Lol, the car is yet to get a no.
Will do the painting thing later on.Although i have seen a few cars with painted calipers and after usage they don't look that impressive, hence i might think a lot before i do it.

Isn't 195/55/R15 a better size for the Getz ,Amy.
Congrats on the rims. You're gonna be faster. Now, order yourself a couple or more sets of EBC green stuff or Hawk HPS pads. They're pretty cheap,abroad.
