Hi, I am planing to buy 14" alloy wheels for my Ritz. I zeroed in for "Plati". But I am not sure how the brand is. Can anyone please guide me. I am based in Kolkata. Any good shop in Kolkata where i can get the alloys. My budget for a set of 4 is Rs 16K. I checked out the Indo Radial Tyre shop in Bhowanipore. Looking forward to your suggestions.

Hey katochrishi, nice alloys. I have been hunting 15" alloys with 98PCD for my Linea, but have not been able to get one. Can you please tell me on which alloys (Make and Model) your Black Beauty is running and how much did it cost you?

Plati is quite a budget brand. Its a Chinese company.
Try HRS, they are in same price range. HRS has much better quality than Plati.

I had mailed Plati, they say they don't have 98 PCD alloys and their dealers fit 100 PCD alloys on Fiat cars. I will not fit 100PCD alloys on my Fiat.

I had mailed Neo wheels too. They also don't have alloys available in 98PCD. So now, I am looking for Linea owners who are replacing their original alloys here in Pune or Mumbai. Hope to find some one soon.

Neo website shows one design for Linea - Xtreme.

Why not new ones from the dealership itself?

Try Glix in Kolkotta. They might be able to help you with options and sourcing. I would also suggest HR over Plati.

Indo radial club is a good place - I got my alloys (plati) and tires (yokohama) from them. You can visit their showroom near science city too (though I guess you would get the same thing in bhawanipore). You can also try glix in alipore/saltlake, or speed & sameer in alipore/saltlake - but indo radial club is the plati distributor. Ask for the proprietor Minku Agarwal - he is a knowledgeable man.

My 800 with Plati 12" alloys wrapped with Michellin XM1+ 145/70 R12
Grip levels are just too good.

The alloys shown are of 100PCD. They are not 98PCD. Neo on mail had asked me talk to their dealer for fiat alloys. But the dealer says that they fit 100PCD alloys on all fiats. I am not at all interested in fitting 100PCD on my Fiat. Either I fit a 98PCD alloy or I don't fit alloys at all.
