This is just one of those days.

On the positive side, its been an experience for me. Can learn from it.
Lol. Live and learn. Its the best way.

I am interested in the widths.
I think its safe to bet on a 5.5" width. (Mayyybe 5", but not more than 5.5 for sure).

How much did the wheels cost?
Fit and finish looks really good.

Did you paint the cap red? (Looks good!!)

The car looks FANTASTIC!

However, it owuld have been better if you had bought 195/55 R15 instead of 195/50 R15.

Ride quality would have been better, it would have been cheaper and risk of damaging your tyres is much lesser.

Hey everyone. There are some great wheels on this thread. I first became a member of team-bhp looking for a review for the beat. Browsing through this thread is what made me lust for alloys on my car. So i finally got my set of wheels and here are the pics. And i guess this must be the first beat upgraded to alloys on the forum

Momo corse 14" alloys
Continental cec3 165/65
On the Chevrolet beat LS

Congrats! The Beat looks great (black has got to be it's best colour!) and the rims complement it nicely! A little larger and wider tires would have filled the wheel wells nicely but at the cost of the ride quality I guess!

How much was it (tire + rim)?
