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.
these HR are made in which country?

please get those brake clipers cleaned or painted!

Thanks Nishant. They costed Rs.10,000. The list price is Rs.10,400 for a set of 4. But the Team BHP reference entitled me to a discount of Rs.100 per piece.

HR is made in Taiwan. And your suggestion welcomed. Please suggest an appropriate colour for the same.

Moreover someone suggested painting the drums, what say?

So Turanza maks the cut. PIAAs move down in WRC style. Alloys look meaty and matches the Octy. Cool pal

Looking good. Where did you get them from and which brand? The first pic points to Ajit Arcade, Near Bluebells.

The rims look good, but why did you get those Silverstone tires?

If you're looking for Lenso's then Just Wheels, Karol Bagh is the place to be. Anyways, nice looking alloys.

And you got Silverstone tyres? His brother who handles Lajpat Nagar unit, have heard he cooks up nice stories about Silverstone in relation to Bridgestone. The same case is available in one of Team BHP's threads.

And for God sake, be aware while buying tyres from him. Here is a case I read Universal Tyre House Complaints - New Tyre Burst

I remember how he was like when told that Sai Mag Wheels have a good website. He says we don't have time to update our website, BUT we have the quality, which Sai Mag lack. And I didn't go for his word, as many fellow Bhpians suggested HR (imported by Sai Mag from Taiwan) to Prestige (which Universal guys say they're from Taiwan, but I never found a Taiwanese web link of Prestige). I'm not being paid for saying so, but Prestige guy has also cheated my cousin by selling him grey market tyres. His alloys are good, as I have never come across any problem regarding them from anyone, but for tyres I only suggest Beware.

All the Best.

Thanks Guys ! as for the silverstone mm.. don't know why i went for it either ,am still confused, i was very much into the yoko + Lenso or konig combo. i guess its the lack of time or I think its the IMPULSE of getting the alloys that got me. i'll be more careful next time

how much did this combo cost you sir?
i am sorry if i am sounding rude sir but i think it will bevery right to inform you before its late, silverstone are the worst tyres money can buy,if i correctly remember manan had a nasty accident just because these tyres failed above 100km/hr.
its better to be safe than be sorry later,u can compromise on the alloys but never on the rubber.
the alloys look good and gel well with the car,infact i have started believing that anhc looks best in white with white alloys,theres a similar design in lenso available.
drive safe.

Sell those silverstones at minimum loss now and get yokohama, michelin or continental tyres.
