Check the previous page for Plati alloys. The user has mentioned the price as 11.5k for a set of 4.

Are Neo's cheaper compared to brands like HR, Plati, etc? They actually have some neat designs; what advantage do they have over imported ones?

And 3,150/- for 195/60-14 is killer price man! I was quoted 3,750/- (XM1+) and 3,400/- (A.Drive) for 185/65-14 by a reputed tire dealer.
I need to take you along with me when I go accessory shopping

sure sure.. Actually I was a bit surprised at the price for yokos too.. At first, the tire shop's other branch (Dumlor, Bangalore) quoted me 3650 for the same.. and while i was getting sun control film fitted on my swift (near urvashi theater,Bangalore) out of curiosity inquired about the price from this branch too. he quoted me 3150 and i didn't think twice to get it fitted... (though it made a hole in my pocket as i didnt plan for these at that point of time )

The main advantages of Indian ones are:
1. they come with warranty
2. replacement alloy of same design is easier to get in case you damage one of the existing ones

So 14" alloys should cost about 3,250/- per piece for brands like HR, Plati, etc. and a little less for Neo, correct?
