Hello Everybody.
I own a Tata Indica, I'm planning to go for Alloy Wheels.I saw a Getz with amazing HR alloys while my dad suggests to buy the alloys from Manipal Motors (Sankey Road,B'lore).I'm confused about this and what is the price range i can get HR alloys and Aura Alloys.
Also suggest me upgrade in my stock tyres.Is it suggestable to change the wheels for a new car.Any warranty probs?
IS IT WORTH GOING FOR "ALLOYS"???

It is definately worth going in for alloys because
1) better ride and handling
2) even better looks
the aura rims for 13 inches can come up to approx 10k. The HR i am not sure of the pricing. For the tires either you can shift to broader tires like say 175/60/13" or you can stick with the same tires that came with the car.. I dont think changing the tires should affect warranty as long as you dont upsize the rims.

This Price i am assuming is without the cost of the tires. For this Budget you can get decent Rims from HR. also do check out the other car accessories stores in Bangalore as the showrooms tend to be more expensive.
