Very very neat Alloys. And, though it has become a bit common now, am a big fan of the riveted type of alloys.

This enhances the look ofthe car greatly

Hows the ride Q, with the low pro tyres though

Ride quality is pretty acceptable, have been using these alloys previously on my corolla. They are built to last, have taken lots of beating though.

Can anyone post good resolution pictures of Fiesta's stock alloy wheels? The silver finished ones which come with the SXi package.

I believe Figo & Fiesta's PCD should match and I can swap them on Figo?
Thanks

Model: Hyundai i20 Magna Petrol

Wanted to do this (the alloys and tyres) for a long time...
Bought the car on 30th Jan and within a couple of day, got her new set of alloys and tyres.

Upgraded from 175 to 195/65 R15. Yokohama A-drives. Paid 4400 for 4 in exchange
Alloys : upgraded from 14inch wheels to 15inch HRS alloys. Paid around Rs 14.75k

Love the look. Speedo error has come down. A true 80km/h on GPS is just 82 indicated as against 85 earlier.

The car has run 1510km and inspite of wider tyres, she is doing well on fuel.
1st fill up : 12.1
2nd fill up : 12.5
3rd fill up : 13.4

These are as per current odo reading which is under-reading by 3% as compared to a stock i20

All pics: Bobby Roy Chowdhury

Those rims are stunning. They're reminiscent of some BBS wheels I saw a long time ago.
