@ Hummer Rulez:

Hi,the alloys look good and great choice for the tyres.

P.S. I would suggest to check the direction of the tyre somehow i feel,one tyres direction is wrong.

@Hummerz, the tyres looks good enough to eat.

Awesome thread pattern and looks great. How about posting a brief review of how you feel about them compared to the stock ones? Costing too please.

I am a big fan of black alloys. But, your alloys looks quite neat and clean.

Way to go !

Got it from BK Tyres? Moreover, is your car HR registered as I remember seeing a black Verna with Projector headlamps?

@VIK0728: Thanks a lot.
@ramie2400: Thanks buddy. Yes, the front right tyre is on the wrong way. Thanks a lot for pointing that out
@Faridsahmed: Thanks. Paid 15K for a set of 4 rims.
@mobike008: Thanks man. The ride quality is obviously not the same as compared to the stock size. This is because of the change in profile size. Stock = 70, Current = 55. So the feel of the bumps has gone up but the handling, braking and stability has improved tremendously. This is one department in which the Verna lacked and hence this size and profile was chosen. Paid 18K for a set of 4 tires.
I had black alloys earlier but thought that they used to look much smaller because of the car being black in color. These ones are 15" but look like 16" only because of there hyper silver finish. And yes, they look neat and clean and are easy to maintain.
@tsk13: Yes, got them from BK tyres, lajpat nagar. And yes, my car is HR registered.

I know this car isnt in India and the post might not be relevant. But i am planning to get it to India for a short time. I prolly will not drive it on the street with those rims on.

I am worried how this combination will behave on rough roads. Rims are almost touching the ground.

After going over a bad patch of road I stop and check if something happened to the rims.
And when I pass over the bad patch, I feel the car doesnt have a suspension system and its directly running on the rims

Reverse Parking with high rise curbs takes an addition 2 - 5 minutes.

Since the roads are reliable here and the car almost doesnt touch untarred roads. So its fine for now.

Hummer.rulez - Those wheels looks really nice on your Verna. Plain but elegant.
