OEM alloys? Is the 5 spoke after market thing? Please give in a few details.

I loved what Sumit did with his GP OEM alloys (the red touch-up)

Thats one swell way of making OEM alloys look like aftermarket alloys
Was gonna ask you the alloy make if you had not mentioned the "OEM" thingy

Nothing is aftermarket,the thick 5 spokes were hardly visible in stock paint theme.

Spotted this Duster opposite my grandparents' house with aftermarket alloys. Looks good with gun metal finish.

Man, that's one sweet looking Verito you got there. Congrats on owning a fantastic car.

I recently bought a Figo & in all honesty, I had liked the Verito a lot more. The only reason I didn't buy it was due to fears of after-sales & the impending details of the Renault-Mahindra agreement, according to which Renault is to supply the engine & transmission only for 5 years after the break-up of the JV. And since the JV broke up in 2010, it's only a maximum of 3 years that Mahindra would get the 1.5 dCi engine. Moreover, the 1.5 dCi never gained popularity in the taxi segment & so spares are not commonly available outside authorized company outlets.

Congrats once again, & the alloy wheels gel good with the car.

Default VW Polo on Custom Alloys & Yoko S-Drives

Got these for my new Polo. Replaced the stock 14" rims running JK Vectra's with these 15" alloys running 195/55/R15 Yoko S-Drives.

I have a query though. The alloy wheels have provision for 10 nuts, while the Polo's wheel has provision only for 5 nuts. The PCD is the same and hence the alloy wheel fit snugly.

In this thread, I saw several members' cars having the same 5-nut, 10-hole configuration in their alloy wheels. Is there a downside to using 5 nuts on a 10-hole alloy wheel?

Cheers!

Nice ones!

These are multi-PCD alloys, which will have a set of five symmetric holes at a certain PCD and the remaining at another, slightly different PCD. I'm not sure if there are standard combinations. This is usually done to allow the alloy to be compatible with more vehicles (with different PCDs), and there shouldn't be any problem in regular use. Don't know if there is a structural disadvantage due to its construction, though.

I too feel the same. From the rear portion, it seems as if it is lifted.

Really cool alloys. Mind sharing the cost of the alloys as well as the tyres?
