Design 1 - Looks like an Enkei, can be sourced from Bangalore but I think the size shown is atleast 17/18" so will look different in 15". Also IIRC Gamerno1 had fitted something similar on his car, contact him for details and also view his garage.

Design 2 - That's a centre mount wheel so that particular piece is out of the question. Don't think have seen that kind of inward curving design available here easily.

For the Nth time boss, NO I am not a tyre dealer.

I do not have/never had any association with the tyre/wheel industry. I'm just an enthusiast who likes tyres & wheels more than the average person.

You have any interesting designs to share, which would improve the looks of a black colored Lancer?

@ harmon

I have used 205/55/15 with League Design LG 203 on my car. There is absolutely no fouling with the wheel arch or suspension. There is every posibility of using 215/50/15 as well. The tyre calculator at Tires & Wheels - 1010tires.com the absolute tire and wheel authority may be of great help to you.

As for the designs that you are looking at - they definately appear to be 17" as somene already mentioned on a previous post. I have seen Lancers running 17" with 40 profiles 215 i.e 215/40/17 but they'd probably need spacers on the wheels & would surely compromise driving comfort - BUT they look cool. 17" rims are also reputed to get damaged on bad roads. Your call. Hope this helps.

Cheers

Thanks Ricky, I deicded to stick with 205/55/15 profile. I dont have many design options now :( which is very sad. If i cant get the BSA 345 then I should go with the Plati design used on the CIVIC modded by Autopsyche. For reference please check my earlier post on this thread.

Thanks again Ricky.

Which CIVIC ? The one that has just had an ICE & mod job ? Those are HR rims 17". All the best for your "wheel hunt"

Hey! Those are my wheels. Albeit mine are the original silver. And I'm running Goodyear Eagle Ventura 205/55 R15 since over a year now.

iraghava, you must be a tyre dealer - you're just not saying it because of forum rules. It's alright, we understand.

harmon, the H-125 looks neat. In hyper-black or clean silver with a polished lip would go well with your car.

I'm sure you'll be able to source any Hijoin / BSA alloy in Madras - most dealers import from them, as far as I know.
