Veloche is a brand known to copy designs from the lenso samurai series. The wheels caroholic1 purchased are definitely Veloche.

Ive always thought the Beat to be a good looking car.
That combination looks awesome & black makes the car look gorgeous.
Excellent choice. Enjoy your new ride.

My thoughts exactly!

The Rims look great along with the momo badging all around.

Wider tyres would have filled the wheel wells nicely and given it a more complete look. Handling might have improved a bit too.

thanx dude...

i checked,

the ritz runs 5.5 inch
and the linea runs 6 inch.

One doesnt get 6" width in after-market alloys for 15" dia.
So, it will be difficult if someone wants to change the stock rims.

Same would be the problem with SX4,
but the SX4 and linea stock rims look good anyways

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.

Thanks guys

@ Sumitbahl- The red part in the center are stickers provided with the rims.

@ maglev- The rims are for 18K (Brand name-VELOCHE) & the tyres are for 4500 per piece(36000 for 4 tyres & rims). But i still have my old 13" rims, tyres & wheelcaps with me.

@ Nikhilb2008- Even i was planning to go for 195/55 R15 but when i searched on the net & asked a few tyre experts i came to know that the ODO error in 195/55 R15 is 3.5% as compared to the 0.1% of the 195/50 R15.

i find the lineas alloys pretty bland looking to be honest, they dont even look like alloys. they look exactly the same as the wheel covers on the emotion variant.

I agree with you. I dont find the Linea's alloys good looking either.. They should have given a better design like the Punto's.

i would put it the other way around,
the wheel covers are really good that they look like alloys

Default spotted a fortuner running on 20"

Spotted a Fortuner running on 20" wheels going towards race course road from rajbhavan road and the profile was 285/50 R 20. Sometimes makes me wonder if they really are 20"s cos they don't look that big for the Fortuner.
