My 14 year old zen with alloys and JK tyres (don't remember the size) but wider than the stock ones.
The alloys with Tyres costed Rs. 20,000 for a set of four.

I am not sure if this is the right thread to post this but I am looking to refurb and refinish a set of wheels in a different color. Any pointers to where I can get a good job done in Mumbai? Till now I have got quotes like 3 to 4k per wheel which I honestly don't think is worth it. Thanks in advance.

Nikhil,

These are Bridgestone alloys worth 20K for 4 wheels set. Any Bridgestone Dealer should be able to procure this for you.

Spotted this Audi at Orion Mall few weeks back.

Loved the simple yet classy look of these wheels.

Replaced 13" stock steel wheels with 14" alloys and new 175 mm rubber on my 2006 Getz. Love the improved handling and performance.

I wanted a silvery shade, since I believed that would work well with my car's colour. At the same time, I didn't want a glossy/chrome finish. Found this set and it was love at first sight.

This was done at Tyre City, Kammanahalli. The proprietor very smartly suggested and got my brake drums painted black to give it an effective contrast.

Finally after 38K on the Odo, replaced the stock MRFs to new set of rubber. Also decided to replace the steel rims with a set of alloys which has been in my wishlist for a very long time since I came to know this set was available in 14 inches.

Tyres: Yokohama C Drives, 185/65/R14
Alloys: Lenso Samurai Series, 14 inches, 5.5J, 108 PCD. This is the only Samurai available in 14".

It changed the look of the car by a great extent and I just love looking at the wheels again and again after parking the car and walking away from it

Few pictures. Please excuse the average quality of a 2MP phone cam.

hey himanshu, I can't really help you with the place where u can get the work done but the cost your mentioning to get just one wheel redone, then that is way too high. I wanted to do the same and so i inquired in a few places here, most of them quoted me around 1k to 2k per wheel. However I haven't got the job done as yet. Running short on cash so I'll have to wait.
