Kool wheels shreyasma!!! They look really nice on the white zen! They are not too expensive either, 15k seems a nice price for a set a five.

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.

That's why I repeated that I was talking about the callipers when he said about losing paint with usage.. the discs are the only visual part that comes in contact upon breaking na? So i figured his friends car must have painted discs aas well..

Or do the callipers lose paint due to some other reasons??

Regular paint can disintegrate with high temperatures generated from hard braking.

Question Dilemma

Guys,

I am looking to upgrade the wheels on my Getz Crdi, i had almost immediately replaced the stock tube type Good years to Apollo Accelere Spotrz 185/60 R14. I am looking at upgrading to a nice set of alloys, Pics of my ride is attached. I am thinking of putting a dark metallic blue from the Lenso's latest samurai series.

Am looking forward to your reccomendation before i go ahead with the purchase, also suggest tyres Michellin or Yoko's .

I prefer the older ones. They look way better than the ones you have on as of now.
