Stock rims are 5J not 5.5J steel...

6jj will suit 205 size tyres perfectly but instead go in for 14" or 15" rims with 195 size tyres to complement the performance of your baleno.

@Buffetfan: I dont want to change my tires.. I just want alloys for my existing tires and just want to know which alloy wheel manufacturer makes the specified size!

dude, standard rims would be 14", upgrades would be 15", ur baleno deserves that, please change to 14 or 15, especially for 205 rubber, otherwise its gonna look deformed.

I think thers some confusion. I think what he is trying to say is that he ALREADY has the tires nd just wants to know wht rims to get. Since his tires are 13" ones he cant upgrade to 14 or 15" but wants to know wht width to get when he gets his 13" alloys.........

You will have trouble finding anything greater than 5.5J for 13" in India. If you are serious on the 13" front, I suggest you look abroad for drag-spec alloys. Those will be MUCH wider, since they are small in height but wide, to accomodate wider rubber.

IMHO, it would be a lot cheaper to pick up the set of alloys and rubber that Driven is selling in Marketplace. They are a perfect fit for the Baleno, and at a very reasonable price.
