Wow! those are crazy. These rims are amazing. Except for the multi-pcd factor, they are flawless. hey aZa how carefully do you drive now man? You dont want to damage them on any potholes, right?
So how is the ride now?
and on a different note, the Projecters you put are simply mind-blowing.

Hey thanks goblin. appreciate it. But i must mention, that keeping them cleaning and sparkling is a lot of work.
But after every wash, they look like its all worth the effort.



Hey hvishwanathan, sorry to inform you buddy, but after planning the upsize, zeroing in on the rims, making arrangements for the tires and ordering and paying, negotiating the buyback et al. Sadly i was forced to go out of town the very evening that the vehicle went for the upsize.
My brother and my dear friend Anant of N1 Racing had taken my vehicle for the job.
In all probability you spoke to anant, whose quite the person to know about everything wheels.

And thanks alot for the compliments. And congrats right back at you for getting hold of the two czech beasts.

If you are looking at remapping your laura, i think you should talk to him about superchips. Just google N1 racing. Cheers!


@superveloce, I wouldn't know their names bacause I didn't ask them :(

But I recollect this guy with a SLR camera just waiting for the wheels to come on so that he could take some snaps of this beauty

I will check the N1 racing site. Take care and drive safe

It happened yesterday evening.

The change was tremendous, unbelievable, never knew a 'change' could bring so much 'change'.

The rolling noise was like rain showers hitting the car on all sides and then it became butter smooth, refined and sound- non existing.

Finally, My i10 has has been downsized to 13" alloys with xm1+ and the ride quality is so unbelievably nice.

I had earlier upgraded to 14" alloys with Yokohama A539. The drive was stiff and tyre noise quite high.

Special Thanks to Nikhil for his support and help in finalizing the alloys.

Is it tilted to a left or is it the photo angle?

Ikoneer, I'm glad you got what you liked. They look really nice on your i10. I'm not a big fan of that shade of red on your car, but the alloys look awesome!

Trust me, your back will thank you for downsizing!

Congrats ikoneer. Alloys look great and good choice of tyres

My guess on the tilt is the road surface
