Default New Honda City

Got these set of alloys after a long hard day, and the collective effort of lots of guys including SYJ, Muneemmk, JayD and their buddies.. There's a real nice pic at the end with the 3 of them in SYJs Mahindra Classic, and Muneemmk in full head gear following all safety measures to be taken when SYJ is at the wheel

I think we covered most of the alloy\tire sites around ernankulam, and with no idea of the routes we must've visited umpteen alloy stores - until SYJ showed up to help (like last time, and the time before that ).

And then we had to steer the focus away from an ugly gun metal 15"er to this white beauty..

Looks like all efforts have been well paid. They are looking good. Somehow I feel these do not go well with the swift, but never imagined they would gel so well on the ANHC. Congrats.

This is a kickass choice of wheels, look awesome with the white and mirror lip.

Wish you a safe and happy driving.

Actually you should've wished us that earlier. The trip back was a nightmare, we reached thrissur only at 2AM. Enroute the cars proximity sensors malfunctioned, the AC and the humidity ended up fogging the windshield so bad that even the wipers were useless and without the CD changer we were stuck with classical notes on the radio.

Thanks anyway !

Brilliant choice buddy!! I think its a effort well paid off. My friend got a nice set of wheels on his ANHC and we too were in same kind of scenario ( hopping from one alloy store to another ).

I'll post the pictures soon.

@mohit, @ImmortalZ - Thanks, like I mentioned 85K - There is a distributor in India called M Auto (Medasani Private Limited - 2008 All copy rights reserved)
Thats freaking light for a 17" Wheel. Congrats on the purchase, I know some will find the price really HIGH, but you cant better alloys then these. Congrats once again.

superb rims on those ANHC. But the white ones would be a bitch to clean no? I regularly use tire polish on my tires and at the same time clean up the alloys. The brake dust and road dust needs to be really swiped clean. And mine are black. How is the maintainence with the white ones?

No rims come maintenance free. Do they?

Its the same as the black ones I take 5 min to clean the brake pad dust from the wheels.
