@Anil. Beautiful wheels. We have a member (Mobike008) who has similar wheels for his Accent CRDi.

What's wrong with the Vista. It looks good, it's spacious, VFM and quality is 100 times better than the old Indica.

@Prince Pervez
Yes they are Konigs, but look too small for the car. 15"ers would have look real nice.

Anyway, does anyone have a rough idea of the price range of Konigs in 17"ers? [Starting range would be a good reference]
Thanks DocG, 17" Konig starts approximately from 28K for a set of 4, and what is E30? Is it BMW E30 you meant ?

@Anil nice alloys the front tire look under inflated to me, keep proper tyre pressure.

@prince Yes they are konig alloy wheels, but i doubt konig has this particular design in 14".

Anyway, the car looks great.
Oh yeah, I remember man, good to see you here.... you wont believe what happened, after taking all the tyres off, they realised they only had 3 alloys in stock. Crazy! I had to get them fitted 2 days later finally.

Chennai bhp-ians looking at alloys/tyres do give this guy a try...he's definetely worth it
Slipstream-could you PM the details of Tyrestore?Thanks.

P&W is a decent enough brand. nikhilv12 from Tvm had those alloys on his Swift.

22k is for 4 I assume.

PW is a well known brand and they are distributed in India by the same importer who do lenso. the price they quoted looks good to me 22k for 16". go for it.

I got my alloys from global in cochin. Got them for around the same price as you mentioned.
But my wheels were black chrome finish, which is supposed to be more expensive then hyper silver or machine finish. So check with your dealer about the finish also.
