Default Zen Alloys

Hi all Rubber GURYS;
Am planing to take sweet alloys for ma baby but have some queries;
1: do alloys need to be changed for new alloys always?
2: what will be the difference of 5 spoke & 7 spoke?
3:any instalation care needed...

You mean you currently have one and go for new one?.

2: what will be the difference of 5 spoke & 7 spoke?
Just look I guess

3:any instalation care needed...
Do balancing on front wheels.

1: yes.because if they are not changed then they would be old Alloys...
but did you mean tyres ?? if so , its better to get new tyres if its within your budget, prefrebly tubeless..

2: 5 spokes will have 5 spokes and 7 spokees will have 7 spokes.thats the only difference..!!

3: i think your talking about a zen right ?? if so make sure you get the correct rim size.if you go to big then its going to scrape when you go over a bump/speed braker..similarly dont go to wide when selectiong tyres.make sure your overall diameter remains the same otherwise your going to be in for speedo error.

NO you need not replace them at all unless they are damaged.

Only difference would be that the 5-spoke design will have 5 spokes in it & the 7-spoke will have 7.

Choose a good set of alloys with the correct offset & PCD. Don't go overboard with the tyre sizes, the Zen cannot accomodate much increase in width. Apart from that nothing much.

no....if you notice the lesser no. of spokes the thicker each spoke iss.imilarly more no of spokes say incase of 12 spoke alloys the thinner each spoke is.

this doesnt stand true alwasy but it does most of the time..so wieght should always be around the same...unless of course they are really expensive light weight one or magnesium alloys or something...
