If I remember correctly, Saimagwheels imports Momo wheels to India. Check out their website or FB page for contact details.

PM not available for me as of now. I got the wheels from B.K.Tyres Lajpat Nagar, New Delhi. Also Harmonixx audio based out of Bangalore are selling Momo's. A quick google search will get you their contact details.

Yes they are the importers, even the MOMO website mentions them as one but they quoted me INR 37k for a set of four and even that was to be made available by Feb last week whereas I got if for 30k from B.K.Tyres.

I don't want to go off topic but does the Matt Finish Revenge Alloys look better than the Black Revenge Alloys on a white Figo?

I liked the Anthracite finish better. Check out Karan's white Figo.

The matte ones you are most probably referring to are called anthracite and the other colour is matte black. If you have a white figo the anthracite version will suit you better, also I feel that the design details get somewhat diluted in the matte black colour as compared to the anthracite version.

P.S. I have the anthracite version, pics on the previous page

Hey KG, did you change the tyres or not. If yes then which ones?

I've upgraded to 185/65 /R14 Michelin XM2 tyres on my Figo TDCi and have covered 12000KM so far. The experience has been more than satisfactory. There's better grip, especially when hitting the corners at decent speeds. Plus the ride is smoother. Only thing is, difference in circumference would be just over 2% post the upgrade (2.23% to be precise, it should be less than 2% ideally speaking). But, I guess, that wouldn't really matter much

Default Re: Ford Figo / Aspire : Tyre & Wheel Upgrade Thread

Need your help fellow members! As mentioned in other thread, upgraded to 185/65r14 Yokohoma Earth 1 on diesel Aspire. I am fed up with the tyre noise on rough surface/ concrete road. I mentioned it when the car was up for service. They said its normal. If there would have been any problem, it would have shown up on smooth surface too. The problem is the OEM tyres were changed on the second day. So I don't have the reference.
Is it the tyres? Or is it any other problem? I've changed the tyre pressure from 34 to 32 to 30. Hardly any change in noise.
Any suggestions!

Thanks espraveen, do you feel the difference WRT steering after tyre change, does it feel heavy?

I have the Figo Aspire and changed tyres to Yoko Earth 1 right from the showroom and have covered 9000kms+ till date and I have none of the problem that your citing

Infact, my experience with tyres are very good. Ride quality has improved a lot, there is very less road noise ( none on tar road)

I maintain 30 PSI Nitrogen air on all 4 tyres.

Hope your not confusing the tyre noise with suspension noise? Since you get the noise only on rough road and patches, culprit could be either the tyre (not sure how same brand can be so different as my experience is very good) or something related to the car body (perhaps the suspension or wheels)

Take a second opinion from a different dealerships/authorized car service center other than FORD
