I know its an AC Schnitzer design, i am however looking at 15" or 16" max. I can't possibly drive with 17" or 18" on Mumbai roads!

I dont think you get those design in 15s and 16s,because ive only seen those rims in 17s till now,may be you can try out Plati,Lenso with a deep chrome lip types with the rims in machined finish or black matte finish it will look awesome.

They are available in 15" too. Its made by some company called Yongle. But i didn't like the finish when viewed closely. Looks good from a distance though. But the look is partially due to the large size(17"). The smaller sizes look tacky.

Hydra,

I think the Alloy experts should answer that one. This is the finish I wanted, may be a lil darker. Certainly did not want the shiny chrome finish.

Lip was a must and as you can see, quite proud of the lip just as you must be. . I like your choice as well. (Similar to the NX just more spokes)

Note from mod : Please follow the instructions posted in the first post. Try to avoid discussing wheels in this thread - the purpose of this thread is to be something like a "catalogue" of all the wheels that members have on their rides to give members looking for wheels an idea of looks, pricing etc.

it would really be helpful if you give rim details like make/model, rim size, and tyre brand along with size.

Alloys looks good and you got a good deal, but I advice you to do some check that they are stronger. I heard that one of them have put cheaper alloys in a Tata Sumo and at high speed after getting into a deep pot hole, one of the wheel came off.

@gopinathan
i had selected some other alloys before, but i was suggested by dealer to go for these as they are better finished and sturdy compared to what i had selected.

@itzzme
tyres were brought( not by me) for something around 12k for set of 5
