Hi Nitin,

The chrome nuts do not come with the alloys,I too purchased a set of Neo wheels recently and didn't get them. It needs to be purchased separately.

As far as rust is concerned, I think a decent paint job should do the trick or even better buy good quality chrome nuts.

Thanks,
Rajiv

Default Friends Getz with 17"

Friends Getz Prime 1.3 with 17" Chrome wheels and Yokohama S Drive Tyres!!

And before everybody starts to comment on ride quality etc, to give you a small example, One tank full in this car lasts for around 1 month plus. The car spends most of the time standing outside the house!! Thats why the decision to put 17".

The car color should have been Mid-night Grey or Black.

The wheels look too flash & too big on the Getz.

P.S. And it's funny that you've posted a pic of the Yoko's since the car seems to be running on Maxxis's!

Ishaan sir, the car is running on yokohama. The maxxis were fitted to see how the car will look on the rims. After that the yokohamas were fitted.
Here is another pic which will show that the car is running on yokohama

I agree that the wheels are looking big but thats the way he wanted, He is those PIMP my ride types.

No offence but the alloys are way too bling and dont go well with the car. Black alloys with a matt fininsh or powder coating would have looked super IMHO.

Alloys looks Jhakkas! You need not buy mirror as you can see yourself in that. It is way too shiny.

Above all, I feel its your personal choice!

In my opinion, its awkward, flashy and spoils look of the car.
The owner is happy and that is what matters.
