Hi azharace

I have purchased a Beat and you can check the same in my garage. I wanted to know, after you have upgraded to alloys, did you find any difference in FE, coz wen I went to reliance autozone, the dealer over there said that there would be significant drop in FE for about 4 to 5 kms/L . Is that true. HELP.

Thanks
Racinghart

I am going to get Alloys for my Lancer tomorrow. Reliance auto is offering their own brand alloys ZEKI for 2800 and neos for 3190.

Has anyone used ZEKI before? howz the quality

also my LANCER is due for a 50K service and i need some one to drive my vehicle and tell what all i need to get checked from the servicing guys

I stay near kundanahalli and work in Manyata, so request any car expert to test drive my car and suggest.

This is our newest project car at Quarter Mile magazine. Got the ZDI rims swapped for these delicious Wedssport SA67R. Perhaps the cheapest car in the world to wear SA67Rs, as I am told.

LOL Thanks Monaro CV8.

Im sure your wife dosn't need an example to express her love to U.

Regarding the Alloys, its the same one I had on my Getzy. Just got them painted to Glossy Black with Pearl White Lip. Getting closer to making my ride resemble my Profile Pic!!!

Alloys - 14" 6J Platinum Premium
Tires - 195/60/R14 Marangoni

Superb choice vivekji05. Those are 16" right? If possible share the spec and cost of both the alloys and tyres. I am hearing very high prices being quoted for tyres these days. And 16" will make it even more expensive.

The new Swift sits too tall on the OEM 15" and badly needs an upgrade. The good thing is, the ride wouldn't be too bad like with the old one.

Yes, they are 16 inchers. The tyres are 205/50 R16 Yokohama AR1s. Picked those alloys and tyres at a special rate. But usually the 16 inchers range from Rs. 6.5-9.5k depending on the brand.

The Swift is a bit to massive it makes 15 inchers look tiny. I chose 16, since I will be using this car a lot. And like you said, with Maruti's good suspension engineers, you can go a good distance with upsizing before you actually ruin the ride quality.

I was also thinking why did you buy plati alloys back with almost the same design .

Where did you get them painted and how did it cost?

Looks good though.

Cheers

LOL Schoudhury, I think I guessed that buddy!!

Got it painted from A1 Tires on Ashoka Pillar road. Honestly, I was not expecting it to come out this well. It really looks so pretty in flesh.
