Really nice wheels, E_L. And you got those alloy-nuts too.

The wheels have completely changed the way the car looks. If you can get chrome/steel valve-necks, get them too. They will complete the look.

As the dealer himself confessed that they've been lying around for a year, you want to make sure they are not damaged or defective in any way, don't you ?

Happy driving!

Nice alloys esteem_lover. That too at an incredible price. I bought 5 Aura alloys for my esteem for 15K and that too after sacrificing my old rims to the dealer.

Thanks for the idea, suman. Never really thought of it that way. I will do the same ASAP & get back. I still haven't paid him fully though.

This certain model used to cost around 2.7k per piece.
Man! That's a nice deal you've got. It looks cool.

One query; Does it have 2 different finish? Machined finish in the outer and matt in the centre? (It's not evident from the picture)

I am jealous

Extremely good buy mate. Also, can you help me look up HR/Prestige/League Alloys for my Wagon R on this (Eagle Nanking alloys)thread?

I just wish I could get some links to websites. I could then simply choose order them via my vendor.

1 year old stock of alloy rims is nothing.
I know of a batch of alloy rims that have been lying in a warehouse for 14 years and it's been taken up for sale in India.I dont know if they've started to sell/sold it.

Nice alloys, john. And at 2K per piece, it is a steal.
Only thing I found jarring to the eye was the presence of 8 holes (due to being multi-PCD I guess). Too much clutter.
