You can look at brands like Plati, Lenso, Hijoin etc. All these are pretty decent brands and a set of 4 13ers would cost around 13k. Lenso would be couple of grands more.

Hi Folks,
I have decided to go for alloys for my Phantom Black Fluidic Verna. I visited the Reliance AutoZone near shankar mutt and he offered me Zeki (which I believe is their own brand) alloys. 15 inch, Set for 4 for 16k... How is the reliability of these alloys? And do you think I should bargain further?

First time I am hearing about 'Zeki'. How are the designs? How is the finish?

And why don't you try 16" wheels? The new Verna can carry it real nice. If you are on 15" stock rims, you will have to change tyres though. But totally worth it IMHO.

Tempted to go for 16" ones,but budgetary constraints. So 15" ones will have to do.
Zeki has been around for sometimes. The finish n designs are decent. Wish someone who has used them could share their experiences.

Zeki is nothing but rebranded NEO alloys ! NEO comes with a lifetime warranty dont know about Zeki . PLati is good . I would say buy good stuff which would last long and the piant wouldnt chip off . Its a one time investment . Saving a penny might make you repent later .

I am getting my new XUV W6 in a couple of days.Could some one recommend some good alloy wheels . I am more performance oriented and personally dont like a lot of thin spokey designs.Since the stock is 17inch ,most of the dealers say that they have very less choice on that.
How much would a set of 5 OZ alloys cost for me?

I'm looking at 14" Neo alloys for my Swift. How much should I expect for a set of 4 in Hyderabad? Does Neo still come with lifetime warranty?

In case I go for Plati, any idea what would be a reasonable quote?

Nope. I contacted Sai Mag Wheels for prices. they have direct door delivery. Didnt check at any of the local dealerships though as the plan kinda dropped.

@Nats,

Which part of the city are you in ? Try Car Ax in Baner, or any of the Darshan Tyres or Tyre Trax stores, they have several alloys too.

As for brands, I can't say which are good or not, I prefer to keep OEM ones (usually Enkei which I don't think have after market options). Try Neo or Onyx wheels, there are better brands but then I doubt you'd want to shell out that much for brands that adorn BMWs and Audis.

Update on the price of Plati and Neo 14":

I purchased Neo 14" set of 4 for 18.8k a month back. Even Plati was retailing around 18k when I asked.

There certainly are some good-looking (as opposed to good!) alloys wheels available for 16k, but I'd advise stretching to 20k if you can, much wider choice in that range.

Nearest to you would be MRF store near Gadital in Hadapsar. Next, have a look at National Tyres at Magarpatta , Tyre Trax on Nagar road opposite jotel Novotel.
