Aye Aye kpzen, I was really keen only on one size and that was 195/55/R15.

I believe Getz has HPS and 205 would make the steering real cumbersom. I might have braved a 205/50/R15 if only my Getzy had a Diesel heart.

Vik 195/55-15 & 195/60-14/ 185/65-14 are perfect sizes for the Getz.

With 205s the car gets bogged down. CRDi also doesn't need 205.

After much temptation to put new shoes on my ride I finally bit the bullet and went ahead with it.

No upgrade with tyre size.
Tyres are standard goodyear GT3 175/65 R14
Alloys: Concept Wheels 14" Deep Dish BM.


A few pics of my Black Figga

Xryder and the shop assistant did some adjustments and ta da!! The wheel fell in place

I'll put up a picture of it later in the day!
@Vik0728:

The rear wheel in the 4th picture makes the wheels look really really big like 16" or 17" !

IronH4WK - Your Getz looks hot! Is it just a result of a wash or did you use some cosmetics?

Time to wash my car :-)

H4wk-maan - now, finally, the photos do justice to your ride Very very nice alloys and tyres, I like!!

On another note, how about getting rid of those mud flaps and putting in wider ones? The OEM ones don't really look good against those wide tyres. Horrible analogy, I know, but it looks like it is wearing Y-fronts 2 sizes too small

went through a drive through car wash and then polished her with Formula1 wax and used Formula1 tyre polish for the tyres.

IronH4WK thats a Stonker black Getzy U got there buddy.
I don't know about mean, but as Xryder has stated, it's a killer when viewed from the rear!!

Since I own Getz as well, have you thought about debadging your ride? Guess, it works well with Getz.

quick question: want to upgrade stock civic alloys to lenso sc 07
Price quoted in delhi: 22k for 15", 26k for 16".
Which one should i go for. Priorities are increased GC and smooth drive. Is the price good? Which tyres I should pair the lensos with?

Hey guys I finally went to Sai Mag wheels last week to get mats for my Innova and ended up buying these gorgeous alloys too. Couldn't post the pics as its raining in Delhi and the car is always dirty. Anyways here is a glimpse of my new HRS alloys.

thanks guys! i think the credit needs to be given to whom it is due - Xryder helped me get 'em wheels for my baby and he was the one who picked the RS GT hyper black (i was lost)

the dealer is Final Touch on Mission Road.
