Can any one help me out in locating an Alloy Wheel repairer in Bangalore? Any help in this matter is much appreciated.

Here are our Galants wheels:

These are the stock rims, with some crappy Daytona Dayton wheels due for replacement. Sorry for picture quality.

Buddy, first of all thanks. I'm not knowledgeable enough to comment on Silverstone performace even in case of city driving, but there has been Manan's Swift case and on the other hand, another Team Bhpian whose friend's car is running fine on Silverstones.

Drive safe is all what I can say.

All the best.

After going through this Marathon long thread of 140 pgs twice and looking at thousand wheels, bothering couple of members, I finally made the decision. Zenopio and SKrules --> Thanks for your valuable advice! Appreciate it!

Alloy Brand: HR
Cost: 24k (including nuts, chrome necks, balancing, spare spanner)

Tyres : Yokohama S drive - 205/50/R16
Cost: Rs 6250 per piece

Total Cost: Rs 49,000. I know!!! same exact expression when I heard the cost, but then I was already sold on the design the day I saw Zenopio's wheels.

Place: Hot tracks

Experience: The guy is costly, but has the best range of alloys.


Let me know what you think



PS: 50 profile is not for Indian roads! With Swift's jarring suspension and 50 profile tyres - Harsh ride guaranteed!!!

Thank you! Guys

Checked with Maruti, they say only set of 4 available. Since I did not want to buy all 4, decided to check in JC road if 1 piece is available.

Wow! Do you have some more pics of the Evo 10. Seems like the Punto also has the similar alloy design as the Evo.
