BAKIYA_2K12, thank you for posting those pictures. your car is looking good, in perfect shine. on the wheels they are impressive.

the profile of 50 + 205, how much difference did it make on the ride quality, has it made the ride bumpy?

my fiesta has a pretty hard steering, when compared to other cars like swift. will putting 205 wheels affect that?

lenso really looks good.

BAKIYA_2K12,nice alloys man.The deep dish alloys are what i'm looking for as well-but without the riveted effect.The Lenso GTR looks good but out of my budget.I'm thinking 15" alloys-but don't want to go more than 195 width on tyres.Which dealer did you pickup the alloys from?

i picked it from Lal enterprises Lloyds road in goplalapuram. i think if you go for 15" the correct size would be 205/50/r15 other wise there will be lot of speedo error you can refer these sites below

yes fiesta has a hard steering but after i installed the new tire and wheels i feel bit free than the old one. the ride quality is affected little bit not too much and you can feel pretty confident while cornering in the bends in high speed the ride is not bumpy.

This is the thread I was looking for.

Since my Fiesta first b'day is fast approaching, planning to go in for the alloys on the same rims 14" and same tyres Michelins. Have been enquring in Thane for good alloys and have found that you can get Neo, Appollo for 16K for a set of five. I have seen OEM Alloys but that didn't appeal to me look wise and cost wise.
In the process of gathering funds for the upgrade.
