If you dig black alloys on a white car then these look good. For me black alloys are a little on the gangsta side, but that's just me.

BTW how did you blacken them?

Hey scorpian, if that is a DIY, you have done an excellent job!!

I learnt that a White colour for a car is like a Plane sheet of paper where you can pretty much sketch anything you like.

I love the White and Black theme myself and if you ask me, I would suggest you to keep this colour for you rims but just add some Gloss finish.
I have done this to my Getzy with a custom "White Lip" to my taste. You can just leave it at Gloss finish which should look lovely.

As an standalone the blacken alloy is looking pretty neat, though how it will look as an unitary whole with car can be decided only after checking them on car.

Why don't you post a picture of the car with blacken alloy, that will give a better idea.

Thanks everyone!!

Yes its a DIY job whivh i did on my off day.I was kinda irritated with the scratched alloys and they look terrible on my ride.

To be honest i tried to replicate the same effect of black and hyper silver but trust me guys its damn difficult to do the masking due to loads of curves and weird design.

So i just sprayed the whole thing with matt black.

For those interested i papered the alloys to get rid of the grime,gave them a wash and then sprayed them.

Final result was quite nice although i ended up spraying on the tyres also

For starters to be sure i sprayed just front two wheels and the rear are still the same.

I have one pic but its not tht great il post it,maybe in the evening or tomm il click a better pic for you guys to judge.

I intend making them dull black,blackening the pillars and gettting a darker film.

Hi Everyone,
Am in a big problem..
When i jack my car n rotate my rear tyres they seem to be out of round,This causes a shaky movemnt when the car is at slow speeds but at high speeds ther is no issue.

The tyres are turanza tubeless,run about 6000kms,never puntured etc.

Before i put this tyres i had a complete suspension overhaul wherein all shocks,arms,trailer arms etc were greased.

I have done alignment and balancing from three places and they are almost identical.Two front alloys take in abt 35gms of weight each and the rear ones take about 65gms.The service guy told me this is normal.

However inspite of this i have a up and down drive at slow speeds which is quite annoying.

What is the solution to this problem?
Replacing tyres so new is definetly gonna pinch me.
Someone told me to drive this tyres after a while they would level out s the higher point wud rub more the lower points and would come back to normal.Is this true?

Kindly help me on this one

The star design seems to be like the in thing in punjab.

In my recent visit to amritsar ,almost every second car was having this.

They look good for sure..

My sister got these classy AVA alloys installed on her Swift.
As for me, my search for 98 pcd alloys for my Punto is yet to see the light of day

Beautiful alloys , goes well with swift's colour .
Are these 15" or 16 " ?

AVA has got some great designs and colors , especially the black chrome ones are great , but they have not many 15 inch wheels to offer and 98 PCD is not there at all I guess .

these are 98PCD alloys, not sure of the damages because the car already had them when I bought it.
