@vibhu_f430: neat rims with great set of rubber to match with. I was looking for similar rims but 15" & diff colour/finish with yoko shoes for my ride too.

Default Meet the "i" !!

And finally I have my i20 Asta !! F1 Racing (even though the cap says Stallion or whatever) 14" 6J alloys, set of 4. Exactly the pattern I wanted. Got them from PAL Tyres, Lamington. I retained the stock tyres, I'm happy with them and I'm not going to corner with this puny 1.2 and that too with the zilch-feedback EPS. I hope you guys like them, coz I went flipping mad trying to pick.

Credits : Tejas for references, Dippo for helping me pick... thanks guys

Flyingspur, a request to please upload a pic showcasing rear portion of the car. I think the same profile tyres will look wider with 6j alloys.

BTW, How bad is the ride now? Its not as bad as i taught it will be on the lancer, So i was just wondering if i should get 16/17" on my Swift ?!

Cheers !
The ride isn't bad, the potholes and craters on the road need to be avoided but its very nice and smooth on proper roads. The car feels extra smooth on good roads maybe coz of the 205 section tyres. I've been through two three potholes and one of them was hard other two were absorbed by the suspension. Overall i'm very happy.

What PSI are u running in front and back?

and i got red lug nuts for the rims

@AzA
Running 30psi on all four.
And I think the softer suspension on the Getz will help with the ride..

Cheers!

@Flyingspur, those wheels are smashing. They are totally made for the color and make of the car. Congrats!

@flyingspur: Saw a similar looking i20 with identical rims outside Tunga Intl. andheri 'e' this morning on my way to work, was it your car, must say the rims were looking neat and compliment the 120.

Yeah, PAL. Was just about to call you. BTW did you get your alignment done after fitting the rims? He said he doesn't want to change company settings on a new car, but at dead centre the car pulls left just a little.

Thank you !! Yeah, as I said earlier, or maybe on my thread, the colour was a compromise so I was praying for a set of rims which would make this better than what I could have done with white. Prayers answered

I don't know where Tunga International is, but I just went to Thane and back. I hope what you saw was my car, because I'd hate it if someone else had the exact same car. Atleast for the first five minutes

Those alloys look super-cool in my opinion. With fatter tyres they also add a lot of a character to the Indigo. One of those rare tyre-alloy combo that I have ever seen on Indigo that looks so great.

Your car will now need a nice little spoiler to complete the effect.

Yes, I race my sebring. (this is where you laugh).

well I hope I can add to the forum and learn a lot too. thanks for checking out my ride AND the ALLOYS !
That is about the meanest looking car I've come across, in recent times.
Great choice on the rims too.

Do start a thread on your other cars. Especially the 'Stang!
