Ace F355, thats a great set of wheels on your Honda. They compliment the car well. I concur, the pic is good for a poster.

Shot this at some resort in Mysore (Sorry, don't remember the name). Was there on the day of the World Cup final match and was trying out my friend's new camera. Am really happy with the way it turned out.

Small correction. The alloys are 15" EVO Racesport and NOT Supersport.

@ Dolphin: Nice alloys, the current ones. I would suggest you stick with these.

PS: The last pic is also a poster in my bedroom! (Yeah, I am like that sometimes) I love it...
Very nice set of wheels.
Seen them in person, looks AWESOME.

Thanks deetjohn. They do look great on my car. Have to say, Konig used to be one of my fav alloy brands in NFS Underground 2 days.

Your Fiat wears pretty unique looking set as well. Love the white + red combo!

Is that true. HELP.

Thanks

Hi RacingHart,
Sorry about the late reply. I upgraded to alloys immediately after i got the car. So I really couldn't notice any change in FE. I don't think there would've been a lot of change as I used to get around 13 km/L on a regular basis. Even if there was a drop in FE, it was TOTALLY worth it! I love my alloys

Looks brilliant! The Cruze was always a looker. This just makes it better. I wish the tyres filled the wheel arches a tad more than it does now. 225/50-17 would have been the ideal upgrade.

Thanks Ryan
Here's the cost breakup:
  • Old tyres + old alloys exchanged for new alloys ONLY
  • New tyres cost 40K (10K each)
So total damage was 40K.
I bought it from Suraj Automobiles at Opera House. You can google him.
Detailed review is on:

Go with the Star Racing alloys. Apart from the evergreen 5 star spoke design the 6.5" width is the perfect size.

I'd go for the ones by Star Racing, 5 spokes look classy IMHO. How much are you being quoted for them?
