Default New alloys on the new Bolero Sportz

I sourced the HR alloys from Bangalore and it is on my bolero sportz. The model no is H-276, They are 15" alloys. They look really good on the vehicle. The rear of the Bolero with the alloys look the best. I traded the Good year tube tyres for Bridgestone Dueler Tubeless of the same size!

Hey, BTW what is the recommended tyre pressure for the front and rear, I have gone by the recommendation in the vehicle, but I still get lot of feedback on the steering wheel. Does any of you have the same problem??

The recommended Pressure is 23 for the front and 26 for the rear for Unladen weight. I usually drive single. Do you have feedback on the steering wheel when you are riding on bad surfaced roads??

Thanks.

I choose Aura B1560, because everyother I tried had more offset from body and I did not want it [also considering motor vehicle act].

I think for Bolero Aura is the best fit, and it is Indian!!.

Default My bolero

Hey Guys - Sorry for so long delay in uploading my Bolero's alloys pics.. may not be the best in market, but this is what i have on my loved Bolero..

Another pic..

But - just check the outset of wheel due to this alloy.. Its really troubling me (dirt splashes from front wheel all the way till my last window on both sides) but can't do much abt it now (now that i have those alloys on the bolero). Only option is to change them, lemme wait for a while is what i am thinking.. Any suggestions to mitigate this is welcome.

btw, New Bolero DI Sports comes with R16 tyres?. Yesterday I saw a brand new one - just out from the truck - with R16. The spec from MMM website says R15 though?.

Atleast when i bought Turbo DI Sports came with R15. Increasing to R16 is not recommended. Not sure whats happening with 2007 batch though..

Default The NEW Bolero

What's everyone's opinion on the new bolero in the market. Prices have dropped i hear by close to 30+K.

Did anyone like the new styling?? A total no! no! from me. They have spoiled the front bumper I guess.

I would like to source the Center console and OEM power windows for my sportz DI. Any suggestions are welcome. If more people are interested, we could write to vijai sales / M&M and see if it works??

I find balancing as an uphill task for my 15" league alloys of Scorpio as the width is 8" and most shops doesnt have the con which will fit in. I havent changed the tyres along with the wheels and still running in the stock 235/70/15 with tube. does anybody face similar issues and & what tyre size would be ideal to suit this wheel? I have done 44000 kms in 2 years & still they looks young.
