Nice naveen! I've always believed in less is more in case of alloys. I hate chunky alloys.

How much did you pay for a set of 4 /5 ?

These were bought online, OZ - If you are looking for an Oz Racing 35th Anniversary 15x6.5" Set Of 4 Wheels & Tyres Black with Diamond Cut Face (4 stud only) click here OZ Racing
I am poor at Math.

@WhiteVDI - Sure will post more pics, I cant access any images from my office. I will do it from home.

Thanks,

Hi Naveen,

I am running on 15" X 6.5. OZ Racing Canova wheels which i purchased online from 'performancealloys.com' an i paid 100 Pounds per rim (05 rims) + 200 Pounds for shipping. After customs and stuff, i ended up paying almost 75k and i found that very expensive. This was a year ago.

Default Basic Question : What to do with stock wheels ?

Hi,

After going through this thread, I have a basic question.

Disclaimer : May be the question I am going to pose is already answered in the thread. Nevertheless I am posting it since I could not locate any precise answer in this thread.

I do have the following question:

What are the options to dispose the stock wheels of a brand new car once the vehicle is fitted with mags ?

I would appreciate what you did in your particular case.


Regards
K. Srikanth
