After 5 and a half years and 75000 kms on the odo, I finally got a chance to give my cars a set of new alloys - HRS 14"!

My 2008 Palio MJD with 15 inch wheels and 195/55/15 Hankook tyres. because of the wider track the car is an absolute pleasure to drive.

Thanks Spawn!

Yes. She's lowered too. The ride quality is awfully bouncy with the current set up. A set of Bilstein B6's are on the way to take care of that

Nice alloy design but I strongly feel that the car looks undertired with 14" wheels. I love the finish too.

Thanks! I completely agree with you and that's why I deliberately mentioned 14". I did not want to spend more on tyres as they have half life left. Moreover, I am planning to buy another vehicle before Diwali and re-position my swift as the second car.

Finally changed the rims and tyres for our 40k kms run Skoda Fabia.

Rims: Lenso project-D specE replicas, 15 x 7j.
Tyres: Yokohama S drive 195/55 R15.

Wanted to upgrade to 16s but couldn't find nice rims.

Have you lowered using H&R lowering springs and stock shocks? Do keep us updated on how the ride quality changes after the bilstein upgrade.

That seems like a ZR6x extreme bodykit. If you're driving this in India then RESPECT
