Thank you for the info,I shall wait for you detalied review on the tyres and car handling.I am planning to buy these soon.

In reagrd to damping first 10k-12k most of things will do fine but after that swift sings on it own.I carry damping in boot as and when a noise comes up i try to fix it.
It would be of great help to read your experiences.

Enjoy your ride!

Suren - those are YUMMY wheels, but perhaps they'd look better on a black car? I saw the first pic and thought it was fantastic, but they dont look as impressive as a package on thecar...

@Steeroid: Thank you, You are absolutely right about the overall package. I must say though they are a pretty sight in motion.

@mobike: Thank you bro, Good to know you like them

Well my common sense tells me it is along with tyres. Actually it is 37K net price he paid if you exclude the 10.5K exchange price.

@AMG: As mobike rightly mentioned, it is for the complete set of 5 Alloys and 5 Tires. Sorry for the lack of clarity on that post.

@iraghava: Coming from you it is truly a compliment. Thank you.

@mobike: thanks for clarifying the above bro.

I like the alloy design. they would look super hot on a black car, IMO they go well with the red verna too. Suggest you to get the A and B pillars blackened. Maybe something for the door handles too.
