Wink Civic

Brand: OE Honda V model alloys
Size: 15"
Price: Came with the car free
Current Tires: Michelin MXV8

My civic is the S model,when my car was booked,I asked for michelin tires.The salespeople must have found Michelins on a V model.So they simply swaped the tires without changing the rims too.I pity that V owner.

PS:Guys shouldn't we follow the same posting etiquette as Rtech mentioned.Lets keep this thread to show off our own alloys,rather than posting random cars pics.

akshay,the civic facelift released last year,now has different alloys for the V and S model.V alloys are like mine and S ones are the old design of alloys.

Thanks.

Tyres from BK tyres, and alloys from Sai Mag Wheels.

Tyres were about Rs. 4800 per piece.
Alloys were 13.2k for a set of 4.

Here are some more pics.

185/65/R14 is the right size.
You might have clearance issues with this size.

Raven, nice alloys. Please upload better pics in proper lighting conditions, Hypersilver finish always looks great with Grey coloured cars.

Cool Alloys on my Indica Xeta

Finally I changed the wheels on my Indica Xeta to alloys last Saturday.
Tyres: 185/60 R13 - Yokohama A539
Alloy: Veloche

Price:
Alloys = 13800 + 1300 (Nuts) + 300 (Nozzles) [Set of 5]
Tyres = 3100*5 = 15500.

Hey there,

Your car looks really good. Indica V2s have always looked good in alloys, specially owing to those wheel arches (these being flimsy is another thing altogether) & the colour scheme you have chosen complements the car really well. Congrats man!

Which tyres did you get?

Drive safe.

yes i know but they have done almost 25K kms, so cant really do much will lower the profile with my next set.

Clearance issues? nothing as of now no scrapping, only on sharp turns i sometimes feel the tyre touches..

Thanks! I have got the Yokohama A539s. I wanted to go for 14 inchers, but did not get any design to my liking.

Hi,

How much did you pay for set of 4 or 5?

I too bought the Neo URBAN, but white finish, for my Swift (mumbai). Set of 4 wheels. Will post the pics soon.

Regards,
Sameer
