The alloys look super cool on the micra and really complement its side profile. Can you please share the price and model no. of the alloys? I would like to try it on my swift.

Hi dZired,

Thanks,
I wanted to change the rounded look of Micra and that is why i picked these set of alloys. I'd like to call it shockwave.
I wasn't happy about the Hankook tyres - road noise was very high,ride had become bouncy, braking and road grip had also reduced. Hankook Optimo were hard compound-hard wearing tyres.
Mr.Tinku from BM Lal tyres had replaced them for free . I got Bridgestone Sports Tourer tyres and things improved drastically.

About the alloys -
Brand HRS but i am not sure about the model. I could get the details for you.
Cost:
HRS 15 inch Alloys (set of four) : 18000/-
Bridgestone Sports Tourer Tires : 5200/- each
Wheel Balancing and Alignment : 800/-
Buy Back :
OE ENKEI 15 inch Alloys : 13000/-
Bridgestone Tires : 4000/- each

Hence i had to pay only 10600/- extra for the new set of wheels.

It's zero offset but is 8j. Am not sure about the offset on the steel rims but guessing it should also be zero offset.

The wheels I'm looking at are exactly the same specs - 8JJ and zero offset but when I tried out 255/60's at the shop, the seem to be fouling with the edge of the front bumper while turning.

True, mine too fouls with the front mudflaps but only when am rolling and making full turns. While it was at India Garage for 2nd free service they have gone ahead and cut the extra protrusion in the mudflaps. So far its been good and have not noticed any fouling.

That's the thing. If possible, could you please upload the picture of where you had to cut the front mudflap/fenderlining.

Nice, but where are the center caps?

I think you should also get side beading break the monotony of the side, its looking like something is missing.

Awesome looking rims your cousin got there. I really love the gloss black and mirror lip combo (cause even I had em) but this specific design looks fab. The last time I visited a Lenso dealer I fell in love with this design and made up my mind that the next tire upgrade and am buying these for sure.

Hey, if you don't mind can you share the cost as I was quoted 21.5k for the same model in 15".

The rims cost us 22k for a set of four. Don't remember the exact price of the tires, but sealed the deal(rims+tires) at 36K(with exchange of 4 stock MRF tires+steel rims)
