I liked the Konig rims more. The blend of black wheel with red outline is simply nice.

It could have been looked better in a low profile tyre, at R14 or R15

Those alloys look nice on i10. But I personally feel, 14" would have been a better fitment.

Are Tata nano aftermarket alloys available? And if yes, where in Mumbai?

The HR rims were more sedate and road car like. Konig rims give the car an open-wheel-racer kind of look - and I agree with vaisakhr, R14 konig would have been killer ones (pointer-> Tejas's i10)

The Konigs are a nice design but they look too small for the car.

Maybe 14 inchers would have looked better !

thanks for the comments mate. i agree the bigger rim is always better but i had to spend around 20k more for one inch which was stupid as this is my mums car and i have a new civic to spend on, so i stuck on 13 and project civic starts soon. i got bored of the HR. besides my mum and dad who dont have a clue about rims and stuff loved the konigs so i am very happy

Default Esteem Alloys

Hey Guys,

I finally picked up alloys for my car. These are 13 inches HiJoin alloys, model H-125

The whole outlook of the vehicle has changed & it suddenly looks a lot younger...

Cheers!
