Nice wheels on your pal's ANHC!
Wonder hows the ride comfort with those 40 profilers, specially on our indian road conditions.

I've never taken a ride in this car but those who've do complain of its low GC, also a result of Lowering of the car.

ANHC on 17 inchers is an overkill. The ride must be compromised 40 profile tyres aren't suited for indian conditions.

hi friends i m from surat.
i just got my new swift (VXI) last month.
i m planing to change my normal steel rim with alloy wheels.
i go to tyre dealer and i found only one brand NEO with b/w.
he said that it cost me 18400/- for 14" of 5 no of wheels with installation.
one car accessory shop person said it cost me around 14300/- for 14" 5 no plus 1200/- for installation.
i look on neo site in which they have 14" wheels with 5.0 and 5.5 offset.
which one is better for me?
my present rim size is 14" X 5.0.

For the same alloys?

Either will do. Would depend on the design you select. Moreover an email to Neo would give you an idea about the prices. They even send it over if needed.

i selected Sprint or Urban.
Sprint is with size of 14" X 5.5"
while Urban is 14" X 6"
I m confuse in these two.
I checked user manual in that Swift ZXI has rim size of 14" X 5.5" while VXI rim size is 14" X 5.0".
is it good to go for 14" X 6" or stick with 14" X 5.5" rim size?

14"x6" is fine as long as you will run a 185mm tread width minimum.
175mm wide tyres won't work with 6J.

Default Got Plati's for my Ride

Hello Guys,

I recently upgraded to Plati Alloys for my Alto.
Total Damage is 9800/- for a set of 4.
Am thinking whether to go for a Red Radium Lip on the Alloys?
Will it gel with the Alloys and the Car Color? Suggestions .

Here are the Pics... Please bear with the Picture Quality as i did not have my Digicam with me and therefore had to click from my Cell Phone.
