X, you can add on 15-20% from the Bombay cost. I paid 24000/- for a set of five in Bangalore.
Tyres are 5600/- each. A complete 'bling package' according to most of the members here.

Rudra Sen,
The Price that I got for 15" League, Boss and Lenso were Between 21K-23K in Bangalore from about 10+Shops. 14" rims were costing about 15.7K to 17.5K.
Thanks,

Default Alloys for Optra Elite

Hi Folks
I was planning to upgrade my tyres to Michelin Primacy LC. Also planning to move to alloy (upgrading to 15").

I had thought of going with Aura / Neo

However when I spoke to Tyrex, Mulund, mumbai i was suprised to find out that Aura had shutdown a long time back and that Neo did not make alloys for optra (because of the non standard PCD). I actually called up Neo and they confirmed the same.

So now I need some suggestions for 15" alloys for the Optra. No cheapo chinese stuff.

Also has anybody bought stuff from TyreX, Mulund, Mumbai.. how good are they. They are quoting 4950 for the Primacy LC. Is that fair ?

Guys your inputs please..

Also is it possible to get regular 15" steel rims (trying to keep costs low) or like TyreX says do i have to put mag wheels

There are a lot of good tyre and wheel shops buddy, you can go in for other brands like HR,lenso, MOMO [bit expansive],OZ[expansive],etc.
Advantage with alloys is that they are lighter than steel wheels, so improve on mileage and handling.
