Hi raghava, after our last postings on this matter, I had checked with Michelin about the genuineness of the 195/55 R15 PP2 that I purchased. I am quoting their reply

Thanks for having enquired through our website.

The Tyre purchased by u from New Punjab Tyres is an genuine product of Michelin India. We have not updated that pattern n our website yet.

Thanks & Regards

Its important that Michelin India should update their site so that it reflects their correct product range.

Guys, I wasn't aware that Aura makes white alloys, until I saw one, just recently, on a Swift (they were multi-spoke). Do they make them in multi-spoke only, or are they available in the 5-spoke design as well? I'd have checked their site, but seems like they're having some issues with the site being infected with malware.

Does Neo make white alloys?

Kudos to you for washing only the wheels for the pictures!

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.
It's only the discs that loose paint after usage right? SYJs ride had painted callipers and i haven't heard him complain about it..

Yes yaar, I tested the car with 15" for a day then 14" for a day, then finally decided upon 13". They costed me 15k for a set of 5. No wheel well mods required but the car height has to be raised by half inch on all wheels.

But the pics does not do any justice. Will try to get some clear pics as the ones posted were taken on a phone cam.
