Default Alloy Rims for Estilo

Correct me if I am wrong, but the Estilo (Vxi) comes with hubcaps and not alloys, right?

If so, what do people here recommend for it? Aura? (The budget being about 10,000 - 12,000)

Yes u r right...VXi comes with steel rims...

Aura is a better choice for indian conditions....plus u can buy a single alloy wheel if one of the wheels get damaged in future...

frankly, most of auras designs are old and crappy. check out brands like hr, plati, neo, lenso.

Are u planning to upgrade the tyres also..?
Isn't the stock size 145/70-13..? Getting 13" alloys on 145 tyres will make the alloys protrude out..

If you dont like aura then you can go for neo or hr . There are some sweet designs in these which would make estilo even sweeter

Aura has some real sad designs. Also I dont think they come cheap.
Venture out and check the designs in the market vebmetal. Compare prices and see what fits your budget best.

You can buy single pieces off the shelf for other brands also.I have done it and depends on dealers who would want to part with single pieces.

IMO Aura alloys are not good looking and you dont have much choice to select it from. I prefer HR, plati, Stallion, Speed...Lenso comes in sizes - 15 inch and above. You can look at tyre upgrade to 165/65/R13

165/65-13 isn't a correct upsize though....

These could be the best upsize in 13" for Estillo
155/65-13
165/60-13
175/60-13
185/55-13
