I had aura on my Baleno for close to 3 years before we sold the car.... There was absolutely no problem with the alloys.... Infact for my Skoda company recommends to equip it with aura alloys only. I am just not going for an alloys because as on date aura doesn't have much options to offer me for my octavia.

Cheers

6 months is a long time..my friend...however as i mentioned- my experience was based on 1 days window shopping over 5 different shops. i was exchanging my views not starting a debate...i am sure if u say its 25 grand then it must be....however we need to look at -city,shop,design and all these vary as per situations...so lets rectify it....25,000/- it is...

I contacted a dealer for Aura alloys for alto lxi.I need some help with few things.
1. he said plus sizing is not recommended as the tyres would scrape the body of the car (mud guards) when turning. is it true? anybody had problems with it?

2. he said ech alloy would cost me 3k. so 15 k in total. is that the standard price?

Please advise.

As far as my knowledge goes any car can upsize one inch up without having any difficulties, correct me if i am wrong.

Hey tyre_on_fire, my personal opinion the designs from Aura looks reaaaalllyy reaaaalllyy sad mate. You can find better designs in the other brands available.

Dont upsize on your Alto,honestly not recommended.Even if you install 13 inchers with 165/65/R13 tyres it would touch the body arches.The only work around is to install spacers.
Check post # 99 here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...-santro-7.html (Upgrading wheels/tyres on Santro)
Have included pics of my alto.

Depends on the brand of alloys you choose and the dealer.

I myself have Plati rims on the car and they have worked out pretty good too considering my Low profile tyres and at times unorthodox driving.
Plati is League's cheaper priced brand. Even DSC rims are decent.
SM is not all that great but some designs are really good looking.
i looked at league for my innova and i didnt like their designs one bit. at least of what could fit my car. and league and plati were priced about the same.

hey thanx guys for all the help.ive decided on 2 things.
1 . no aura alloys.will be going in for Neo bullet

2. no upsizing(plus sizing).

actually checked few places for alloys.auto shop in Kmangala has offered neo for 10k.(for 4).so far the best deal.
that guy Kumar knows his stuff.will recommend him anytime.

Adnan - Why don't you post some pics of the alloys you're looking at so we all can advise you on them.

@Adnan, HR, League do come in 3-4 different finishes including chrome. Why dont you check out prestige? mine are prestige and is quite good, you can take a look at my wheels in my gallery.

The alloy shown in picture will look ok on a black car. IMHO, not that great. Same spoke pattern in shiny chrome would look awesome
