naah V12 ,

IMO , these alloys dont go with the optra's overall look.

the car looks too mature for those alloys.

boy , finding a matching alloy wheel set for the optra is turning out to be some fun maan...

cheers

Well rudra, I don't mean actually buying BBS itself. A similar pattern from another cheaper company would do just as well.

BTW, here is a pic of another black Optra in my office parking lot. These alloys are slightly smoked and go along great with the realy dark tinted windows he has. However, 14" looks waaaay too small for this car.

Hey rudra,
league might be a good brand,But my suggestion would be to go for the imported ones as they are lighter
and stronger and have better designs. I had 15" HR on my esteem. currently have 16" JE on my baleno.
the prices that you have mentioned are way high. here in mumbai we get 15" any where from 17000 to 21000.

I agree about the imported ones having better designs. However u cant be assured that they are always lighter and stonger!
