Blackasta, Nice Wheels. May I Suggest Black Windows To Complete The Look. It Will Enhance The Whole Car Exponentially. Btw Hows The Ride With Those Low Profiles??

Jk Das That Punto Looks Amazing. Looks Like A Jet On The Runaway, Getting Ready For A Takeoff.

Talking X marks the spot

i just got these put about two weeks ago.The ones i liked were only available in a 6j size, still took the plunge though. had to get the rear fenders rolled, they were eating into the yokos. 1" spacers on all four sides.

i love the feel of the new rubber. lots of grip. ride is also pretty smooth. have to work out getting the suspension stiffened.

Hrs Rims 13" 6j: 12500 for 5
Yokohama A 539
175/60 R13- 2800 a piece

Buyback of old hardware. 1000 Rs for all 5.

Thanks.
I was contemplating films, but really holding myself back as I heard that the Kolkata cops have become extra vigilant towards cars with films on this festive season. Also need some info on which spec films to put in. Digging into teambhp threads for that!

Come on - 185/60 ain't that low a profile!
Ride with the yokos tend to be tad on the harsher side on bad roads and this is coupled with the i10s stiff suspension, but handling, straight line speed+stability and high speed turning have become superb.

I was planning to fit alloys on my Vista after a few months of ownership. However with Aura alloy wheels shutting shop I am in a dilema now. I have been a very satisfied owner of Aura in the past & hence had decided to fit the same in the Vista also.
What are the available choices now? I visited a couple of shops & came to know a plethora of brands which I had never heard about. Please suggest alternatives with the best place to get the same in Mumbai ASAP.
Thanks 4 all the help ppl....

My alloy wheels ride started off in 1996 with a brand called Neo. They are still around. If you are lookig for an Indian brand, they are fine.

Check them out at Welcome to Neo Wheels and you also get Accelere brand of alloy wheels from Apollo.
