hey guys - any advice on how Momo alloys are in terms of reliability and lastingness. I have kinda liked a design that costs 35K for 5. Want to know if its worth paying that much for them.

Most people here seem to be having Lenso/Plati/HR etc. Havent read anyone mentioning anything about momo's.

Help please

I am planning to go in for these alloys in my maroon accent.
will they look good.
tyre size will be 185/60/14.

I am getting these both in Chrome and Silver finish.

go for Silver, chrome gets rust easily, it require high maintainence as compare to silver. Though I took Chrome one for my i10.

silver is the way to go...
easier to maintain and won't go out of style soon
i suggest atleast at a 195 tyre width.
better would be 195/55/15.
I have 205/55/15 in my city and i'm loving it.

@akshay it is a very good design you have finalised as per
my suggestion go with hyper silver they will look good on your car.

chrome looks bling but the shine dosen't last long.
