I live in South Banagalore and reference to any good dealers nearby is welcome. How much it costs approx for a set of 4 of 15inch alloy
While Aura is considered good, it really lacks good design laine-up. Comparatively NEO has more design. For every design they have 3 finishes. Not sure about Apollo. I have recently fitted NEO alloys. it is early to comment on it's durability on roads. Since it will take me another 3-4 years to reach that 50k mark. As of now I did fill a difference in driveability.

I got a Black machined Torque design. Costs around 18k including wheel balancing, aligning, fitting charges (excludes the threads).

Default Neo Alloys

I have been using NEO Alloys since 2 yrs now and haven't had an issue (touchwood) and trust me they have been abused due to the bad condition of roads both within city and on the highway.

Thanks & BR,
Rajiv

You can look at SSW alloys and Apollo Acelere.

Stamford Sport Wheels

Welcome to Apollo Tyres

If you say Lenso gets bent on Indian roads, please stay away from Plati, League, HR....
Hi Nikhil

Where in Bangalore you get SSW alloys? I looking for 15" alloy for NHC.

I'm looking for 15x6J for i20. Budget can be stretched to 24k.

I also have a query. Chrome plated & machinised, which is more durable. I am of the opinion that Chrome plated alloys looses its shine in a few years. Is it true ?
Same query as above. Can folks share details of reliable alloy dealers in chennai? lenso,hr,konig,enkei? Thanks.

Default Re: Best brand of Alloys in the Indian market

I had done scouting in Kochi for 14" alloys on my new Figo.

MOMO-
Very expensive & very high quality. You can feel the low weight of the wheel by holding in your hand. 30+K

Lenso -
Priced 2-4K above other brands. the finish is exceptional. Very different choices like brown with red metallic tip were available. My Choice. 16K approx.

HR -
Looks of similar quality as Lenso once fitted but white alloys tend to accumulate the colour of dirt in the long run (as experienced in my friend's Swift) 15K approx

Plati -
The surface quality is below Lenso & HR. But having (ab)used it in my M800, i can vouch for the sturdiness. 13.5K approx

Neo Wheels-
The most attarctive part is the pricing. Looks decent once fitted on the car, but close examination reveals uneven finish. 12.5K approx


Other brands -
I came across many other brands including fake "Borbets" made in China. Opted to stay away although price was attractive.

Never seen any in Kochi (on display)

OT: Last year while in Coimbatore saw a BBS alloy wheel at Sri Vari Aligners. Mahesh (Owner) told it costs 30K for 1 piece. That is the best & most expensive alloys i have seen in my life.

Is there a one stop-shop for this in Cochin or did you have to roam around multiple shops? Could you point out shops and locations please?

@swiftnfurious

1) New Bharath PitStop on NH bye pass LHS frm Edappally to Vytilla.

2) Global Tyres on LHS towards Kaloor after Mamangalam accessory shops. They have a bigger outlet on NH byepass somewhere between Vytilla & Palarivattom.

3) Tyrex has many brands but mostly unknown chinese or expensive MOMOs.

4) Neo wheels sell retail in Kochi only through Carnation. But they have a stockist in Elamakkara (9895703807) The godown is so hard to find that i am unable to explain. You can call up this guy after entering Deshabimani road/the road that turns left from Modern bread factory. very very VFM.

Other alloy dealers like DBS, CarPalace etc does not have much stock.

Hope this helps.

O.Z are expensive and start at 25k or so, for just one wheel. However, the quality is unmatched. They are motorsport-derived, so they're bound to be exceptional.

Same goes for BBS wheels.

If you think 30k for one wheel is expensive, well, BBS make a wheel they call the FI and that costs over a lakh a piece! Even the BBS LMs and LM-Rs cost more than a lakh a piece. Quite expensive for wheels, but worth the money, if you ask me.

approx 12 months financial planning would be required for me to buy them

But by then the alloys would actually cost more than my Figo's market value.

Do they make it in 14"

I will have to enter politics soon or try to learn Yoga. Hmmm!

I had seen a BBS brochure with Mahesh which says about a wheel with air cavity inside the spokes (inspired from skeletal bones?) I guess it will be the same you mentioned.
