I guess com paint will do the trick. I painted my swift's ORVM which were black in color to white. A minor ball pen cap sized chip can be easily covered with t i guess.

if a white car y not use whiteners(the ones that come in shape of a pen) they stay for long and dont rub off easy.

Default Palio GTX now with Linea alloys

I bought a Fiat Palio 1.6 GTX which came with 14" alloys, these were warped and bent so I had to change them. The daunting task of sourcing 98 PCD wheels from the limited range offered by Aura & Neo worried me. Fortunately, I hit pay dirt on day one. The shop had a set of 15" 98PCD alloys which were OE on a Linea. Seems the owner of the Linea had exchanged them for a set of 17" alloys.

I paid Rs.13K for the set of wheels (6.0 J R 15), shod them with 195/55 R 15, Pirelli P7s and fitted them onto the car. Here are the pics.

Matte black will be very dull, you can try some other dark shades like titanium, like that of old Porsche 911 GT3 series.

@ravendra good looking alloys, finding good alloys in 98 pcd is tough job. will say get them painted to white (if you feel) will make the car look good.

@lancer.iced nice choice there, post some daylight pics.

Default "Michelin" Tyre and "Lenso Samurai" Alloy wheel!

Got these yesterday from Super Tyre Tec, J.C Road, B'lore. The owner Prakash is very good. Since he is the authorised reseller for Lenso alloys he offered me the lowest prices compared to the other guys.

Michelin Primacy LC : 4800 * 5 - 195/60 R15
Lenso Samurai SC05 : 5100 * 5 (All other shops were quoting 27k)
Buyback of Swift ZXi stock tyres and alloys(2.5k kms) - 1400 * 5 + 9500
Alignment and balancing free of cost.

@ ashwinurao: Nice looking rims. I love samurais. But it would looks better in low-profiles.
