Do you have some pics of the cars interior, engine bay and probably a list of what he has done. Great set of wheels and well maintained ride. Please convey these to your friend

Thx

Congrats KiloAlpha!!!
Both the alloys and your Figo look HOT!
These are 14" right? How much did they set you back by, and where did you get them from? I'd love to have these on my i10
Are these available in full steel finish too (w/o the black coat)?
TIA.

Yes, these are 14" wheels, "EVO" brand. They set me back 16,500 for a set of 5. Bought them at Sachin's Auto Shop, Koramangala. Not sure about the full steel finish, you will need to check with the catalogue. I am quite sure they will be though, the whole machine finish/hyper silver is supposed to be in the in-thing nowadays.

my friends laura with 18" AMG's.
I know somehow something doesn't sound perfect when you combine Laura and AMG, but trust me they look fantastic.

It certainly looks good. But why linglong tyres? And why the fake lorinser things in the middle? The rim design really suits the car though.

Linglong's chinese tyres are floating in the market since 2010.Seems its a lot landed about 2-3yrs back and couldn't be sold.They surely have made its way in the south.

Most probably they're just "AMG" styled rims by a south east asian manufacturer.

I mostly believe they are genuine, going by the person who sold this. It was lying in his store for the last 3 yrs, since there were no takers he gave them away dead cheap (exchanged with enkei + some $$$$).

even the el cheapo linglong cost him 10k per tire, so matter of time until he gets a good one. Skoda cap was too small and looked out of place and only these lorinsers were looking right, hence.

Spotted these nice alloys on a Swift parked in my office (not a BHPian, at least no stickers- no idea whose it is). Thought they looked good so postig. The tyres are 205/55R15s.
