My compliments on a job well done.
The finish is great and the choice of wheel is very well thought out.
From what the pics show, perfect offset too.



I'm assuming the ride is fairly hard though...? I would also like to have your feedback on tyre/rim damage (since the profile is very low).

Thanks Bharat!!!

The ride isnt bad its actually better than what i had expected it would be. Handling and high speed dynamics have improved to a whole new level although i rarely do high speeds.

Yes about offset your right its just right for the swift no scrapes anywhere on the body with these wheels even when fully loaded.

Maxxis MA-Z1 lasted 45,000 kms after which it started developing cuts though it had preety good grip left I replaced the full set with Nankang NS-20 very comfortable tyres and almost a huge change in the road noise that the Maxxis made. Regarding damage i dint face any maybe its my driving style that has helped also the League alloys are fairly strong and I dont think they will give up so easily I would definitely suggest this brand if anyone is looking at 17 inch have used these alloys for more than 55,000 kms and must say they are still fit and fine.

Would have loved it had these alloys been gloss black with a white lip similar to this (My Kleemann K4 : 650 BHP and 900 NM of torque!). It would have looked really cool. You could probably consider it in the future.

S2 thanks for your suggestion the Merc is looks cool. I had these alloys in matt black before attaching a picture of the same.

I did think of this black and white combo but things dint work out and I felt even with full white the car looks good.

Hey, I've been looking to get some rims for my i10 too ! Where did you source these wheels from ? How many inches are the rims and did you tune your suspension to accommodate them ?

I got them from Tyre Store, Chennai. The rims are 14 inches ( 185 / 60 / R14 ).
The brand is Veloche and no, I did not tune my suspension.

Unfortunately i10's PCDs did not match with many wheels in that shop but luckily I got this one

Spotted this Innvoa with beautiful gun metal alloys. The alloys (looks like Plati or Lenso) match the colour of the Innova.

Nice Rims there. MOMO Revenge if I am not wrong. I also have been meaning to get the same wheels. Amazing choice and color there.

Can you please post some more pics in broad daylight showing off the wheels from Different angles. I want to see how the concavity of the wheels look like.

Thanks for sharing
