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.

WOW You got yourself an excellent set of wheels. The OE Linea alloys are really nice. Congrats



Cheers

A Drives are pretty good. About a week back i took a trip in my friend's LDi which was on stock tires. Not only the handling but the ride quality in the LDi with stock tires was a bit harsh. Yesterday night he took a TD of my car with the upsized Yoko's and he was impressed. He was initially not recommending me to upsize the tyres but after taking a ride he told me that i have made a right decision on upsizeing and he was infact asking me if he could upsize on his 14" Stock Maruti alloys.

With the Yokos the ride quality has improved and so has the handeling and breaking but stering has become a bit hard(by 10%). Overall its a good upsize over the stock tires by a huge margin.
