But I doubt he can paint one spoke blue. Those new rims look machine finished, and its really hard to paint a machine finished rim.
You would need to get it checked by some expert.

Hey fuhrer your Etios-Liva has some attitude now with those footwear buddy. Looks Sweet

I just have 2 questions :

1. Is your Liva a Petrol or a Diesel variant ?

2. How is the ride quality and the steering feel post the upsize ?

Drive safe now buddy, you never know how many envious eyes might be staring you down !!

Big fan of those Enkeis, as I think I've mentioned to you before. You have no idea how much I looked for them for the Cruze, but then I eventually fell in love with the Lenso ES6s (which were also a cast-iron !@#$% to find, btw).

Btw... don't we have a photo-shoot date for the Accord and Cruze? Friday sound good to you?

I was lucky to get them. At that time quite a few designs were in stock. Now tyres and rims is a pain in India I would say.

Fridays good.

Guys, Have to upgrade to alloys with Maxxis Victra MA-Z1 205-55R15 shoes for my swift.

I just went to some local shops to see some alloys and tyres. They say that we have to completely replace my swift's suspension and raise the height for upgrading this profile(205-55R15) o_O. But I guess they simply bluff for selling the stuffs they 've and I think this can be done with the stock suspension itself. What is that PCD and terms and all? How could see it in the tyre?

I just zeroed in these two designs in Maxxis Victa MA Z1 tyres. Will these fit in exactly with no problem? Iam unaware about technical terms like PCD, offset, 6.5J et cetera., Please enlighten me.

Note: Mine is a older swift, I've noticed a change in the Recommended Tyre upsize chart(Excel file) from 205/55-15 to 205/60-15 before and as of now?

Yes, all that "completely replace suspension" is a load of horse manure, don't buy it.
