Dear friends,

Here are a few pics of the alloys of my recent acquisition the SX4 DDIS , 2 pics are already posted in my ownership thread but thought that might as well post a few in the Alloy Wheel thread ,

Nice wheel on that car peter !!!
Good going Peter! For a moment I thought that I was looking at a Beemer
Thats the first SX4 DDiS that I have seen with After-Market Alloys.
Looks super.
I've got a white one (SX4 DDiS), but since its a ZDi, I didn't bother to hunt for alloys for my car.

Do share the make of the Alloys. And did you get new tires as well?

And yea, Congratulations for the Midnight Black Beauty!
Cheers mate.

Many thanks Monaro , the tyres are stock tyres Apollo Acceleres and the alloys are Stallion Alloys I picked up from the Michelin Tyreplus outlet at Navi Mumbai.

I was a bit skeptical while getting these but now am happy after the install and the positive response

Friends, I am shortly expecting delivery of my Ford Figo Diesel in either "Silver' or "Chill' colour.

As soon an I get the car, the first change I plan to do is, upgrade to slightly bigger tyres (185/65 R14 or 185/60 R14) Bridgestone Potenzas.

Please advice, which brand of alloys are best for Figo? The ones in the Ford showroom are rather plane looking and expensive (Rs. 15,800/- after discount).

Which store in Pune has the best variety and price?

I recently put new alloys and tyres on my year old Figo. My search for suitable alloys taught me a valuable lesson - do not fixate on a brand! The PCD is 108, which is not so common. Hence, search across all possible brands.
185/60R14 reduces ground clearance by about 2.5mm and the rolling radius is within 1% of stock. 185/65R14 increases ground clearance by 6.5mm and rolling radius is 2.2% greater than stock.

Are the Ford alloys 15800 for a set of 4? In which case, this is about average price for alloy wheels. Most after market alloys cost anywhere between 13K-30K for a set of 5.

Please first read the thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...-your-car.html (READ FIRST: Choosing The Right Set Of Tyres for your Car), and the link in the first post to the Car Bibles guide.

Got my vtec`s stock ENKEI rims buffed and fixed it on my ritz!
After buffing it got a new life, now its look like brand new.
Not that fancy looking, but it does the job very well.
Shod on Michelin Pilot Precida.

18" AVA rims on civic, with yoko s.drive 235/40. That`s my cousin`s ride.

Here are some pictures.

VTEC alloys are looking awesome on ritz.

And no words for 18s on civic, this pattern/style is my favorite.

Those alloys are real good. As Monaro said I felt like beemer.
Those alloys give entirely different character to SX4. Wow!!! the car looks fantastic, very well maintained.

@Monaro: Aren't your Octi alloys something similar ? :-)

The Vtec alloys are looking good on the Ritz,i love them,they suite the body shade pretty well.
And regarding civic alloys,no words they are extremely hot,and my favourite design as well.

Those rims from AVA fitted on the civic looks 17s to me.Because the same design with same profile for it installed for a OHC vtec for a friend of mine.
