Plati is imported & the "how" is what "khoj" has mentioned.

However, I seem to recollect that the Apollo alloys are made & then imported from Germany. I had got this information over a conversation I had with some guy working for Apollo near my house. But this was about 1.5-2 years back & things may have changed now.

YOu can also look at Apollo alloys. These are supposedly made by Synergy Dooray another domestic manufacturer who are also a big time OE vendor.

I think this can be ascertained if our fellow Bhpian can share the details on warranty cards & other tags that come along with Neo alloys. In fact, when I had bought Neo alloys for my car, I had noticed that they come in boxes with the alloy design & name & other details printed outside on the box.
In the warranty card it is mentioned as SM 560. This was a display piece in the showroom and I didn't see the covers. On the centre of the wheel, Neo is inscribed and I bought it from the authorised distributor of Neo wheels in my town. I suspect it to be a 2 or 3 year old stock.

I have apollo alloys on my Santro. Last month when I enquired with the Apollo dealer, he told that Apollo has stopped the alloy business.
Here is a picture of the apollo alloys on Santro - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...ml#post2141692 (Upgrading wheels/tyres on Santro)

Well, after getting the delivery of my Silver colored Swift I have been going slow on the mod jobs with the budget playing a spoilsport. Have got the alloys and the tires changed. Posting a pic of the same here. The tires are Bridgestone Potenza GIII 195/60R15 88H. I decided to upsize to 15" alloys rather than 14".

Superb choice of wheels.
Totally transforms the charcter of the Manza.

Would you mind sharing the price paid for them ?

@motomaverick: Lovely choice of wheels for you Manza, they are striking a great balance between looking classy and sporty at the same time. The multi spoke design really suits this Tata sedan.

Buddy, the alloys look classy on the Manza. I find your car looking much more premium & upmarket due to the alloys, too good a choice for your car & particularly in this colour of Manza.

By the way, I have seen print-ads of this brand in some auto magazines & I find that they are available only in southern states of the country. Any idea which country is the company (manufacturer) from?

Yeha thats the cheapest qoute i got for AVA, other auto accessories were qouting at the least 25k after much haggling.

Final Touch are KA distributors of these alloys so thats why prices are less comparetively.

The price is more for this finish which is Hyper Black, other matt black options were around 20k

I think its there in other parts of the country as well as was informed by Final Touch, i guess the distributors are more aggresive here

22 for a set of 4 is quite steep.
Although nothing better than a set which truly complements your ride.
All in all, a good buy.
