Default Here is mine....

Hi everyone,

Please find below pics of the alloys on my new Swift Vxi.

Tyres --> Michelin MVX8 195/60 15" - Rs.4500 per tyre
Alloys --> League 15" alloys, set of 5 - Rs.21000

Also adding the costs that people usually don't count when taking the purchase decision:

Hi-join wheel nuts --> Rs.1500
Hi-join steel tyre valves --> Rs.150
Bit plus bit-rod --> Rs.350

Thumbs up

razor4077 The Lancer got a Sturdy look, Extensively Impressive. The color and the Combination made the Alloys worth being made for the Car.

looks great. though why the goodyears? were they cheaper than the rest?

these wheels are inspired from the wheels of the 530i.

nice pics. well change is always good. its a matter of personal choice, no offence please, i somehow seem to like the previous ones. they were going more in sync. with the car & its colour.
but anyway new ones are also good.

yaa they were lookin good from front and back angles but from side they were looking veryy small in real buddy ...:(
and more over i went for 50 profile which is very bad upgrade in 15 inch for swift, which reduced my GC ,scraping my front bumber now and then...so thought of changing the whole set up....

Smile Which alloys are these ?

Check out these 2 pics

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/iipcache/48864.jpg

They are of member 'ollie'. Really nice set of alloys (7/8 multi spoke with polished lip) on Mumbai's Honda Vtec. This car was on show in 2006 speedrun which i couldn't go for ! Can some one identify which alloys are these and what size could they be and where do i get them from in Mumbai (shop name & address & phone #). Will be a great help !

I think those are Lenso's in 15/17". Why don't you PM Ollie & confirm the details?
