Hello gargashwin06

Please find the price of alloys and tyre below , i have driven my verna for 1100 kms so cant comment about the comfort . But one has to drive carefully avoiding big potholes when on low profile tyres otherwise i find ride comfort fine .

Alloys : Rs 19000
Tyre : Kenda 215 45 R 17 - 4000 per tyre

Total amount i paid was 7000 to shop owner as i got a buyback of rs 28000 for OEM 15 inch alloys and tyres .

Awesome!

I think your car belongs to this thread - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...india-221.html (PICS : Tastefully Modified Cars in India)

Please do post couple of pics there, if not posted already.

Yes they do. The balancing and alignment outlets stick sticker based weights on the inside of the wheel.

Smile An upgrade for Honda city 2014 to Vossen CV3 Design

Its been a year since i bought the iDtec, though I upgraded the tyre size to 195/60/R15 Michelin XM2 from the stock MRF 175/55/R15. The alloys design ha always been an issue since the beginning though i was wish i could switch to the previous OEM Alloys of Honda city iVTEC but the car dealer denied to get them changed.(They still had a better design than the new propellor alloy design)

Recently saw the New CV3 series from Vossen , looks fabulous

Though original Vossen designs start from 18 inches and above.
The ones available in india are the so called first copies. They are reliable as well as they too are cast made.( As per info collected from various Alloy wheels dealers across delhi)

But certain things i need to make sure before i get them changed:

1) Does changing OEM alloys causes any issues with warranty related to suspension.
2) As mentioned in the earlier threads the best tyre upgrade could be 195/60/R15 for the new city ,( Does changing the tyre size also can void the warranty)
3) Or if the previous alloys can be kept ,so that they can be replaced everytime the car goes for service and the warranty hence therefore wont be revoked.

Hi Ankit, the replica Vossen's look good. Where in Delhi did you find them and the price?
Regarding warranty, unless you are claiming warranty related to suspension/ steering you should be OK (given that you are not upsizing from 15" to 16" or 17". A slightly wider tyre should definately not void any warranty specifically.
Other members more versed with Honda warranty claims can add.

However the upsize from 175/55 R15 to 195/60 R15 is not the best as the tyre circumference increases by over 7% (ideally it should be under 2-3%). An ideal size will be 195/50 (in increase of only 0.46%). You could expect a slight drop in FE and initial acceleration as well though offset by better handling and cornering at higher speeds.
Cheers

The pics seem to be either chopped or from a SE Asian city? Rear disc brakes I see!!

Changing OE alloys MAY cause issues with warranty - this can only be ruled out if you speak to the HASS and tell them what you intend to do.

Wider tyres don't cause issues with warranty AFAIK!

Using stock rims and tyres can prove to be a good jugaad method if you really take the plunge even if HASS clarifies no warranty on change of stock alloys.

I am more worried about the safety features working properly (ABS) from using aftermarket alloys. Have heard stories of ABS etc. not working do to this. Please make sure safety features are not hampered at any cost.

Finally, what's the cost of the wheels

The original tyre size is a typo Krish69. The city comes 175/65/15 rubber and so the 195/60/15 upsize is within limits.

hi ankit,

Is this your ivtec ? And are these cv3 replica 15 inchers ?? I have purchased an ivtec and upgraded to 205/55/15 Maxxis MaZ1 tires on OE rims. I cant find a sober alloy design in 15.
