Hey baby! You would have gone for one upsize! 12" looks too good on alto!

I finally have swapped my rims to brand new alloys, I wanted my ride to be different (bling factor) so decided on not putting white alloys as every second white car with alloys is white.

Took an awful lot of time to freeze on the shade and had more or less made my mind on the metallic blue shade though was a little skeptical on the result.

Recently on an overseas visit to South east asia saw a white hatch with metallic blue wheels and instantly made up my mind to go ahead with that shade.

Now there was one big trouble in my mind as i had changed the tyres to Apollo Accelere Sportz 185/65/R14 and have just 4K kms done. Also since its my first diesel car i had my doubts on upsizing and resulting pro's and con's. I did ask for suggestions in this forum but unforunately for the 1st time i did not get any feedback . So i decided not to upsize and started my search for a 14" version, after a lot of enquiries and visits i finally have it.

Here are the pics.
I love those wheels... There is a Metallic Blue Alto in Bombay with those wheels!! Looks SEXY!!

yes the ride is very harsh! you can feel each and every bump on the road.the tyre is a bit noisy also.but i like the tyre for its performance,braking under wet conditions is very good.it grips superbly while taking corners at high speeds also.

Found these good looking alloys on an accent. I liked them
simple, but adds good character.

these model alloys are not matching for a sedan.these alloys are usually seen in SUV's. they will look better in those vechiles.

Has anyone fit a 195 width tyre on a 7J alloy wheel? If anyone has I would sure like to see some pics of the tyres on the wheel.

Did you by any chance took that pic in front of BK Tyres. If yes then i just arrived there when four of you guys were leaving. Those alloys really looked impressive on the car in person.

Thanks buddies Sumitbahl, Ramie2400, Cyrus43 for your feedback and suggestions, points noted shall think of something soon.

@Karankapoor thanks for your feedback too - The shade is very different and takes time to get used to, its very different also it has an excellent 2 tone finish which unfortunately my blackberry camera couldnt capture, looks very amazing in flesh.

Mustang, amazing wheels. They go amazingly with the white body.
By the way Mustang, alloys are of which brand? And are the tyres Yokohama S Drive?
