Wow! When I was looking for alloys 2 years back, matt black finish(the one you've got) was available only for 15" and above.. Hence the question

R_S - very nice looking alloys - very well suiting the RED SWIFT.

Cant believe the tire is 33K run already? WOW, they look brand new!

Also is this the real market price for the alloys / did you get any special discounts?

cheers

Hey, thanks a lot, bro!

Yup, this is the actual market price including all the fitting charges and the special allen key for the bolts.

Cheers,

Which are popular brands? I am aware of Lenso and Plati. Any others that i should be aware of. What is the approximate price range for the same?

Please advice

Gosh, your Momo GTR alloys look good enough to eat! I have a huge soft spot for 5 spokes. Fantastic choice. Don't want to nitpick, but I wish the outer border didn't have that "riveted" look. Would have looked cleaner / better without them.

P.S. That "diesel" sticker on your fuel lid sticks out like a sore thumb. Please remove.

The alloys look good on the car, nice choice mate.

OT: Guys, are there any adverse effects of choosing bigger alloys (upsize) on the suspension etc? I mean, an inch upsize is very common these days but if going any further, could it have any adverse effects on any component?

Mods, sorry for the OT, however this section seemed like a thread where I could ask this query. If inappropriate, request you to kindly move the query.

Drive safe.

This is a car which I spotted in my Office. This really looked like a beast.
I am not sure how it would ride. The car was a good 1/1.5 feet above the ground. Thought of posting. By the looks of the alloys they looked expensive but I have not heard of this brand. Anybody has any idea..

thats one mean Endeavour. BUT, the alloys look cheap. So do the black wheel arches. Topped by LOSER Maxxis tyres. PHAIL!

The wheel & tyre combination is actually reasonable and shouldn't affect the ride quality at all. However, can't tell how he has lifted the Endy. In all probability, that will kill his ride. Great looking, though I don't envy the body roll he must be facing.

Guess it's all down to individual preferences; I quite liked them.

Sshhhh.... some tyres from the Maxxis range are highly revered amongst off-roaders (look up our 4x4 section).

Why is the Endy appearing smaller to me?

In a white Car, which combination shall look nice? (not on the top & screaming loud for attention)
