youll break your back with 18inchers. the ride will be that bad. the max you should go for is 17.

Which part of Mumbai are u located sunny? I ask because of the pathetic condition the suburb roads are in. OZ has some amazing designs in 18" wheels. They would look fab on a Laura. I have seen a Laura with 18 inchers myself.

Here are the recommended upsizes for the Laura:

215/50-16
225/50-16
235/50-16

215/45-17
225/45-17
235/45-17

215/40-18
225/40-18
235/40-18

215/35-19
225/35-19
235/30-19

However anything over 17" you would be asking for trouble on our roads. Also ensure that the rim you select has the correct PCD, Width & Offset.

In the suburbs you could buy your wheels from Bombay Tyres or Saifee.

If you're from Chembur, drive down to Vashi to Pal Tyres.

I think the best range of alloy wheels are with Saifee (Santa Cruz) and 4 seasons (Tardeo). You might do well to head over at either.

Sunny, head straight to Jogani Tyres at lamington road, Ask for Dinesh Jogani and chech it out. He has a serious collection of quality rims and at good prices too. He can give you upsized tyres too if you want there and then. Four seasons and he are brothers so there wont be a price difference too. If you're goint to him, PM me. ill call and tell him to give a good deal.
