The OEM rim size is 6.5Jx16. I believe you need atleast 7.0J for 255mm.

Yours are tube type or tubeless stocks? I know tata also provides OEM alloys but have no idea about their cost. Any one can you please help on this.

Oh ok the usual sister concern sales ploy eh!!!

Bruty - Silverstone is in no way related to Bridgestone, whatever the dealer might tell you. This is a common sales ploy used by tyre dealers in Delhi to hoodwink customers. The only subsidiary Bridgestone has is Firestone.

Prestige alloys are pretty good though. Do make sure you have the correct width, offset & PCD.

Gentlemen,

My truck would be 6-months old soon, and it will go for the first service this week. It has done only about 2.5K Kms, should I get the oil changed or not?

Any more inputs on specific things to watch out for in the first service...

Thanks,
Su-47
