Cost: Rs. 21000 (set of 5 rims)
Tyres: Rs. 25000 (Rs.5000x5 Good Year - GSD-1, 195/55/15)
Rs. 24750 (Rs.4950x5 Michellin - 195/55/15)

What do you guys think of the H-124 design on a Lancer[black]

I just checked another design on the site sometime back. Check this one too and post your opinion.

Hi..

I am restarting this thread after two years.

I am searching for some good alloy wheels and shop in Chennai to upgrade the stock wheel on my i10 which I am about to book. I prefer to go for 13" or 14"

Are the shops listed in this thread or still alive at the same location? Is there any other new shops and contact persons? Can I get both alloy and tyres at the same place?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Folks
Are the Chennai dealers mentioned here still valid?
Any dealers/shops the Team BHP veterans from Chennai would suggest?
Looking for alloys for my ANHC, planning to continue with the 175/65 tyres and merely change rims to alloys for now (I fear voiding the warranty)

Thx in advance

Hi chaostheory,
There are 2 dealers that I know of in Chennai..

1: Tyrestore - On Greams Road
2: Raja Tyres - Pycrofts Road, Royapettah

Both places have good enough number of designs. I've found Raja Tyres to be the cheaper of the 2 on more than one occasion

PM me if you need more details.

TyreStore, on Gream's Road, is in the lane next to the TVS Kohinoor showroom, service is good with a lot of car-care products on display too.

Then there's Majestic, just beyond Don-Bosco (Egmore). Things are a bit laid back, but they can usually source any rim & tire combo you want.

And then there's BM-Lal, a good place to go to, especially if you're looking for choice. The only thing is that its tough to get attention there as they service a lot of customers (typically cabs & tourist vehicles), you'd be surprised a tire store can get so crowded. But if you get there early enough you can make a quick exit.

Thx ph03n!x for that +ve feedback, my car is coming in 7 days from now, as I asked for a colour (polished metal metallic) that is slow moving, and hence taking time. Once I add the alloys, will update.

Hi there, Is there a price difference on two sets of alloy wheels that have the same design but different finish?
