Default Hijoin Alloys - Need views

Hi all,
I really liked Hijoin Alloys designs and was really impressed wiht
H-154

This will be for my CJ3b Jeep. Any views on how good these alloys are...the price i got was 22K for a set of 5.

Cheers!

i have been using hijoin alloys for mnay years now and they are very strong i should say

the car has been in accidents and they were not minor accidents but alloys held on and are still going strong and car is also roughly used

and 22k is a little on a high side for these alloys in chandigarh we get them around 19k

E_L: Thanks a lot for the info...I spoke to Srinivasan and was put off by him...he was saying "Sire, Wrangler AT/R is offroading tire...if you use it on Tarmac u will get only 5000 KMS" from it...i tried explaining that AT/R stands for All terrian and it is built for this purpose but he wouldnt budge...plus he quoted 7000 Rs per Tyre and I said Good bye

Proxima: Will try them tomorrow...any contacts?

You can call Deepak, the owner at 9840920870, tell him that you are a BHPian. You could also mention my name (Benjamin).

He will defenitely give you a good deal. I picked up Nexen tyres from him for my Safari.
