There is a new texture in 69 alloys (it matches beige color I guess) you can try that. Black too suits your car and preferably go for a dull finish (gun metal finish?) rather than a shiny if you are opting black. Somehow I feel I just answered the vaguest question in the vaguest possible way!

Nice wheels, complements the car well. Where in Banglore did you get them from ? How is the ride comfort with the tyre profile at 55 ?

Default re: The official alloy wheel show-off thread. Lets see your rims!

Yesterday I got Lenso alloys and Michelin tyres for my ANHC. It costed 33k in total after buy back of stock Michelins which had run for 840kms.

Alloys - Lenso SC8 (22.3k for set of 4)
Tyres - Michelin Primacy LC (21.3k for set of 4 @5325/tyre)
Buy back - Michelin XM1 (done 840kms) for 11.6 k @2900/tyre

Total 32k + 800 for new nuts + 200 tips for workers = 33k. The 33k also included wheel balancing & alignment and 2 free wheel alignment checkup coupons.

Special thanks for fellow bhpians Pr_007 & JagXF for helping out with the alloys.

Your ANHC looks fantabulous.
BTW how are the Michelin Primacy LC vs. the stock Michelin XM1 performance ?

Thanks.
Though I have driven the car only for abt 20kms since yesterday but straight away I could feel the extra grip, the car feels planted on road. My first car was a Santro and when we got the ANHC I felt there was a serious disconnect btw the steering and wheel, bit of an understeer always. But now after the upgrade things have become better. Initial acceleration was faster with the stock tyres for obvious reasons. Cant compare on the tyre noise and comfort factor now, I need to drive somemore to write on that. The tyre is really soft and I feel one needs to be extra careful on bad roads.

@ donarun

the car after the wheel upsize looks good wanted to know what pcd size is it and the ET of these wheels ,
also any reason in case for you to upsize tyres from the stock XM1 ?? I thought Michelins were better as an OEM tyre!
Can you take the pain in expanding the abbreviation standing ANHC

cheers

Alloys look great, don! Sweet looking ANHC!

Isn't the price per tyre kinda steep? Nikhil will have to clarify this one!

The Car looks cool, The alloys look cool.

But somehow they don't match up when come together.

Ok, here's my car with her newly-fit EVO alloys. The tires, though, are about 33k old Yoko A-drives.

I got the alloys from Poona Motors in Camp, for a total cost of 15,500 including the fitment charges.

Thanks. During the month of december cost of primacy LC was 5250/tyre, but now I am told that after new year prices have increased (enquired in couple of shops).

Thanks. Honda's are 100 PCD, not sure on the ET. Upgraded tyres for grip and looks, the alloys looks great with wider tyres. Stock Michelins (XM1) are quite good, like having less rolling resistance which aids in mileage but lacked a bit of grip around the corners.

Thanks. There aren't that many options which would go well with the bold beige colour. This was one of the few alloys which gave a different & aggressive stance to the car, so went with it.
