+1 to that. Those alloys would look awesome on a sedan with low profile tires but not on a SUV with chunky ones.

Have a look at my newly upgraded Alloys and Tyres for Swift

Earlier was running stock JK's 165/80 in 14" Aura Alloys

Now upgraded to Apollo Accelere's 195/60 in 15" Lenso Alloys

Thanks Sir, I tried few ones from Apollo alloys and Lenso, but they had many spokes - some 8, some 10. I wanted good 5 spoke, but this was the closest i could get. I also liked a Lenso Samurai alloy with 10 spokes and similar color - But narrowed down to this.

Got them at Lal tyres at 22K for Alloys (4 nos.) and ~18K for the tyres.

EDIT: I just now saw your gallery and it was the same alloys i liked. Cool ride yours. I wanted 205/55, but then heard the Ride quality suffers a lot.

Talking Wheels for my ritz

I got a ritz ZXi a few days ago,

the stock rims and tyres werent particularly impressive.

So, went for these 15 inchers (prestige), with 195/60 R15 Yokos (ES100)

Cost me 9k for the rims in exchange of the stock one's (4 nos.)
Rs. 4250 for each new tyre
And Rs.2700 return for each stock tyre.

Total: Rs. 16000

I would suggest ritz owners to stick with 185 section tyres, cause these 195 are a mm or 2 outside the wheel arches.
Even the 7 inch rims are a bit thick

Looks really good man!

Nice tire and rim combo If I had a ritz, I'd get a similar setup!

Arre Munjal bhai !! When did this happen !!

Not a fan of the Ritz, but yours is a killer ride. It's one of those perfect combinations of exterior colour + rims. Have fun mate, hoping to see it sometime.

Brilliant choice of alloys for the ritz. Suits it well, but then the ES100 's ? Weren't the ES100's stopped from production quite some time back. Did you check the manufacturing dates of the tires ?
