Default Alloys, at last !!!!(With pics now)

I found a great deal on alloys & got them done immediately. A set of 5 HR alloys for 10k, sounds good ? I will post pics soon. Only niggle is there is no warranty. Anyone had any problems with HR before ? They look good though.
cheers

Yep, recently changed tyres, so could not afford to change them again.

There is this XL Tyres guy whom i keep bugging everyday for good used alloys. To stop me from bugging him further, he gave me this option, so i took it. This was a discount that his distributor was offering him & he starighaway passed it on to me.

Will put up pics tomorrow.

5 for 10K? GREAT deal! You lucky <beep>!

HR alloys are good. I see more of HR than any other make. And I run HRs and I've had no issues.

Congrats and nice deal. I shelled out Rs. 16500 for five Neo alloys (13 X 5J). When you get a chance please do post your observations on any differences between the stock wheels and alloys.

Not clear, are they used alloys? If new, for that price for a set of 5 is a steal. I got mine, 4 alloys of prestige for 14500 ( i knew even then he was fleecing me, but no other options and as always in a hurry)
