That is one Hot Polo.
Now she needs tints,and may be a pair of projectors,to be one of the hottest ride around town.

Awesome wheel choice and color combo. The lip kit is also looking real classy and the black with the chrome lip is really setting it off. You can never go wrong with MOMO wheels.

Arguably, the best set of wheels on this thread. Love anything that looks even remotely close to BBS wheels. But how are you going to live with that minuscule 35 profile? Isn't the ride very hard?

Thanks man i appreciate that, and i have been babying my car and driving slow, no point on spending money on wheels when people can see what they look like if your driving fast.

Wow!!
Those are fantastic, just loved them.
Well what else can one speak how the car looks? Classy

But I have the same question, with that minimal rubber isn't the ride very hard??

Here's a look at my Vento's stock alloys on 185/65 R15 Aceleres:
The official alloy wheel show-off thread. Lets see your rims!-dsc01204_2160x1620.jpg

They look so plain-Jane compared to my Swift's rocking black wheels:

Still- I didn't upgrade since it's a new car and they it ges with the general understated look of the car. Maybe can palm them off to a trendline owner looking for upgrade at the time of first tyre change!

The tires i got they are soft compound so it wont be as stiff as a dirrectional summer tire. yea its low profile but these cars already have a rough road suspension from factory (made for the indian market). Anyways like i said before, i have been babying the car and driving real slow and avoiding potholes.

Details and photos of the new ones follow.

Alloys-
Brand: ELG (Elegant) Am not aware of this brand. The seller said it's a good brand and since I trust the seller I bought them.
Size: 15"x7J
Price: 4250 x 4 = Rs.17000

Tyres-
Brand: Bridgestone Turanza ER60
Size: 195/60/R15 (They look like 205s!)
Price: 4800 x 4 = Rs.19200
I see that you are selling your Alloys+Tyres in classifieds.
Another change coming up?

Change done. Yesterday.

I was on the lookout for a particular model in a particular color. Got hold of them just a few days after I got the Elegant alloys fitted. Since I found what I wanted, I changed to the new found ones and put the Elegant on sale.

Pictures coming up soon.

That POLO with black spokes & chrome lip looks amazing. What a difference wheels can make to the look of the car !!

What is the sock rim size on the Polo ? 15" ? How is the suspension behaving post upsizing ?



Cheers

Err...the rims on this car does not come with socks. Sorry, couldn't help myself .

On a more serious note, yes the Polo HL comes with 15" alloys as OE. They're the same on the Vento as well.

The car's handling has obviously stiffened up, post tyre change. To quote a well-used cliche', 'Corners like it's on rails'. Trade off is a harder ride on even slightly uneven roads (read most of Kerala's roads) but the stock shocks seem to be holding up so far. I guess one will have to be real careful while going over potholes with such low pro tyres & pricey wheels anyway.

Man its looks kool.
The back alloys are looking awesome with the color of the car.

I guess you could have left only the Suzuki logo @ the rear instead of clearing all of them .

heavy foot - the baleno is looking great in that shade with the de-badged look and the black alloys. somehow the parking sensors are distracting a bit...
