because yours is a conservative colour, beige or is it silver?(of the car i mean), i would pick bottom row second from right. the 8 spoke silver alloy. I think this design will go well with your beige/silver colour.

had your car been white, then a black spoke alloy would have looked fantastic

checked the Tyre spec sheet - this is not mentioned there
it says 195-50-R15 is the right combination.(i dont want 205 )

I am looking at ,comfort smooth drivin most of the time.


These are the options i have in mind

Pics of the car , and the options i have , Guys please suggest
I would suggest the Lenso Samurai just below the picture of your car. I frequently see an ANHC with the same rims and it looks awesome.

My type1 OHC was shod with 15" wheels, 195/55or60 R15 if I recall correctly. Never had any problems. I believe a lot of people are using this size.

Hey Sathosh.
You again changed your alloys and tyre ?

I see an ad from you .
http://classifieds.team-bhp.com/buy-...14-Tyres.html/

And also looks like you already replaced the lenso alloys with new ones.

Let us know whats new.

Cheers

Yes, I did.

The Lenso PD08 alloys were 5.5J. I wanted 6J as the 215 tires were bulging a lot on the 5.5J width rims. So changed to 14X6J Elegant alloys. Got bored of them and then changed to AVA (a few photos below).

After a couple of days of using AVA I found Lenso Raiden Light S3 in white color. Very unique. I have not seen this design in white and not even a single picture on the internet too.
I always liked this design. So, went for S3. Pictures will follow sometime soon.
Lenso Raiden Light S3 is this. What I've got is in white.

Awesome .
Im sure after sometime you will loose the count of alloys and tyre you have changed since the time you got the first 14'' alloys .
Anyways i think these ava are 15'' , right ?.
I have seen a white ldi over here with the same set of ava alloys and spoiler , and that swift has the roof painted/vynyled black and believe me, it looks really nice. I guess you can also give that a try and see how it looks .
Anyways all the best.
Cheers

bro. your ohc is looking hot with those shoes. even i had a ohc with 17's.. even though the potholes kill the back, but still those glances from people is worth every penny spent on the wheels.

very well manitained car. just one thing which was looking out of place were the 2 antennas. IMO get rid of the one on the boot lid.
