tasuray, the alloys look great. Plati for 11,300 rs is a very good price. I have never managed to get Plati at this rate.

15 inchers are possible only after adding spacers. 195/45/r-14 is the max one can go. I remember t-bhp member blueraven having that in his ride..

Good ones, you have more pictures of those. Great alloys but not so great tyres.

BTW the coincidence is you posted them on 18th June2010 and I got my vehicle delivery with those Alloys on 20thJune2010
The only difference is I opted for Michellin XM1+ as stock tyres (rather I made sure I get those with the vehicle).
Thank you!

That is a coincidence alright! Although we took delivery of our Jazz sometime in May!

You're absolutely right! They are Modulo and they aren't available in India according to Whitefield Honda. They source it from other Asian markets like Thailand and Indonesia where they sell the City/Jazz too.

Modulo accessories are all cosmetic bits where as Mugen offers performance parts as well!
