First of all thanking Notorious, White_VDi, m4ugr8 (Manan), kpzen, jkdas, Nikhilb2008, taj, aZa for their personal support; Moderators and fellow members for their kind support in the development of this wonderful forum. With the wisdom showered by you all, I finally chose the footwear for Santro Xing. Here are they:

4 x 13" HR (HRS) Alloys; Design No. 373 in Full Machined Gun Metal Finish
4 x Yokohama A539 175/60 R13

The alloys were purchased from Sai Mag Wheels, the importers for HR and Tyres were purchased from BK Tyres, Lajpat Nagar.

The car hasn't been driven much post the new footwear, but the limited drive even on potholed roads was comfortable and the steering is lighter than before (My stock Bridgestone S322 155/70 R13 had a good life left, but still the steering was a bit hard).

Moreover, I had to purchase a new Spanner with slim edges as the old was too thick for the alloys.

Beautiful!! Love the alloys. They go brilliantly with the car. Congrats!

Do post a proper review of the tyres after a few thousand kms.

Thanks a lot sir.

I'll post the review as requested. Moreover, I forgot to mention that braking has improved a bit.

Warm Regards

Thanks a lot.
The Gunmetal finish had limited designs and this one was the most outstanding.

You're right but i think they're looking pretty neat on the accent too.

It's giving that proturded look to those wheels.

these wheels are awesome! but i personally feel that blue coloured HR logo which comes in the center of the alloy was much good looking than this silver coloured.

Beautiful. I was looking for exactly the same design in 13. How much did they cost?
