Default Any place in india to get nice 18-19" alloys, preferably imported

Hi guys, I was wondering if there is a nice place where I could get some imported alloys for our new S. factory rims are quite hideous and look small. I have to check whats the std size, but i figure they are 17" or may be 18", wouldnt mind stepping it up a little and getting some really nice wheels. What brands are available in inda and where can I get them online if possible or someone on the forum who deals with them?

Thanks

Who is going to carry them and shipping from US is freakishly expensive...tried to find out, it was costing as much as the wheels and then the duty, it would be much less of an head ache to deal with someone in india...

I can ofcourse get the best wheels here(as you can see from my vette's black ones) but its just too much of a hassle..

You get several AMG replicas available in India but i am sure you wouldnt wanna ruin the image of your S with fake alloys!
Your best bet would be to get BBS alloys, they are sold offical in India. 'PJSPEED' would be able to tell you more on the same.
This is the link to his website http://www.pjspeedshop.com/BBSIndia.htm

Also Brabus and OZ wheels are available in India through dealers.

Well Sahil if you are gonna ask for wheels for an S then that's the answer you should expect!! And after all good quality 18/19" are going to be expensive anyways.

But yes 1Day it would be best for you to deal with PJ since he's the official dealer for BBS & also there's an official dealer for OZ in Chennai. If you are interested I could find out details from another member & give you the contact details.
