Default Lenso Samurai SC01 Bronze on White Swift

To start of I would like to thank Team Bhp and members for making such an interactive and very well organised forum to exchanges ideas on automobiles. This site was key to getting various accesories for my car.

After a long hunt and lot of frustration dealing with accessory dealers here in Bangalore I managed to lay my hands on lenso alloys.

I am really happy, the car looks amazing now, totally worth it.cheers:

The photographs dont do much justice, it looks much better.

I will be posting a review about accessory dealers on a seperate post on accessory dealers.

2008 Swift VXI ABS

Lenso SC01
Size 1565
8H PCD 100-114.3
ET +38
COLOUR Bronze

Alloy Cost Rs 4550 per rim

About Lenso Samurai: The Samurai range is produced by Lenso using their latest CAD technology enabling them to produce Super Light Weight without the need to use forged aluminium which greatly increases production costs. Not only are these wheels extremely light, Lenso have created revolutionary new colours for the range.

Awesome choice buddy! Suits the car very well.
Its 195/60/R15 right? Is that the right upsize for swift? 60 profile was with 14-inch IIRC.

195/60-15 is a perfect upsize for a Swift.

Thanks a lot Guys

Yeah the tyre size is 195/60/R15.

This is the correct tyre size for 15inch rims, this has been mentioned on several posts on teambhp.

However I would like to mention that among Bridgestone G111, Yokohama Sdrive, ES100, Michelin XM1+, Pilot preceda 2 and XMV8 only Yokohama AVS ES 100 comes in the size 195/60/R15.

Ive noticed alot of guys go in for 15inch upsize max with 50-55-60 profile tyres,rather than going for 16s and 17s,I personally feel 15's gives lot more comfort than the stock 13inch on cars like getz and swift.

Super alloys bharat and dharmana.

White suits its well. The bronze looks greats and of very good built quality.

bharat, the alloys look smashing. great choice.

AFAIK, 195/60-15 is also available in michelin MXV8.

Another thing, Why have you removed the front and rear mudflaps from the car?

Hey, first of all congrats. You have got a awesome set of wheels. Great choice buddy.
Now did you pay 3455 per tyre after the Rs. 750 buy back on stock tyre? I was quoted 4200 per tyre in bangalore.

Thanks Vid 6639

I have not removed the mud flaps, the 2008 mud flaps are not in stock according to Bimal. They said they will fit it during the first service.

However I think they will mess up the look so I might not get them fixed at all.

Thanks Anshu

That is right the cost of each tyre is 3455. (195/60 15inch)

Go to Sai Iyengar on Lalbagh road or Milvision (Yoko Distributor) on Krumibagal road they will give you the tyre at this price.

I faced the same problem, most of the accessory shops in Banglore try to rip you off by quoting high prices.
