Nice alloys there and congrats on your new upgrade and what is the split of the 36K? One of my colleague is planning a set of alloys for his black ikon and as i find yours damn neat, thought of just recommending the same to him.

Nice alloys vezj420. Enjoy the look - a bit similar to the alloys I bought which are also Black Machine finish

@vezj...
Nice alloys. It goes well with Black Ikon.

My brother got the same set for his Indica Turbo (with GoodYear F1's - 195/60R14) almost 10 months back. It s nice setup.

Thanks for the compliments guys!
VJ, the breakdown was as follows:
Tyres: Around 3,600 each (5 nos.)
Alloys: 16,900
Chrome nuts for alloys: 800 (16 nos.)
Tubeless tyre valves: 250 (5 nos.)
Nitrogen filling for all tires: 250

If you add these figures up, they won't come out to exactly 36k since I'll left out some minor details (i.e. old tyre exchange, balancing weights, etc.)

Hope that helps! PS The League models available for Ikon's 108 PCD are LG 190, 191, 193, and 236 (look em up).

Why should you pay extra for Tubeless Valves?? I never pay for them, they're included in the tyre cost.

Parvez so even you are in the pimp my car business now . Congrats on the upgrade and yeah please call me when you find time. We will talk about the PM.

tomrider no offense but then those are the lousiest set of tyres I have ever used. Only the tread looks good. My car felt like a boat with those tyres at high speeds.
I would rate our very own el-cheapo Indian Apollo Accelere's better than the GSD II's.

May be... But I personally liked the handling at speeds of 100-120.. Even it gave a better grip during our monsoon drive to Kerala. According to me the most annoying thing is the tyre noise.

Amazing snap, car and also the Rims.. You should have taken off the Hella cover, it would have even looked great with the angle lights on.
Sexy snap, flabbergasted.


Vikram, have hear lot about your car dude, I think you need to go for a smaller IND number plates on front and the regular one behind, your car will look even more sexy.
