Exactly, the bolts has been covered by the Plati cover in the center.

Aye aye!

Somehow I find the Plati finish a lot better than HR/League etc. I once saw hyperblack alloys on a Swift. Drool stuff from Plati.

Rajesh bhai, getting a lot of appreciation. I think you should be crediting some money into our account for showering you with all this praise

Btw, anyone knows whats the pricing for Plati or HR 14" Alloys in Black and Silver finish? I am thinking of going in for a clean 5-spoke design.

Another pic. The black dust is the brake pads its common on long drives, it just wipes off!

Attachment 97320
The black dust might be tyre wall rubbing some part. Remove the tyre & check the walls.

I just checked your garage. I quite like your alloys and was thinking of the same. But, i had a single spoke ( you have two thin spokes per spoke) design.

Not sure if the same design will suit my Viva. Can you please take a look at my garage and let me know what you think? Also, do share the model number of your alloy...thanks!

I had seen an similar design(like mine) in a red Verna. It was looking quiet good on that. Not sure about the single spoke one.

About the model number, i am sorry, i dont remember it.

Also prices in Hyderabad might be on a higher side. I got these from Mumbai.
