Default Alloy wheels in Pune/Mumbai

Hi,
Can anyone suggest a nice place to buy alloy wheels and tyres for my Honda Civic in Pune or Mumbai. I've had a peek at the obvious usual places but not impressed. I'm looking to upsize to 16" and do NOT want Low profile tyres. I'd prefer really nice 10-12 thin spoke wheels or else unusual 5-spokes (my last 3 cars had 5-spoke alloys and I want a change). I looked at the usual League and Plati but wasn't really impressed. Very common designs that you see on every other car. If possible, I'd like to have a look at some good brands like Momo, OZ etc.

Yes I am looking to change the alloys and the tyres. I' planning to upsize to 16" from the OE 15". Poona Motors has League, Plati and Aura. Nothing unusual. I got all my accessories done there. I know him extremely well for a number of years now.

There is a new place called EGo's in Koregaon Park, he gets his stuff from Bangalore, I lost his number , but his name is Vicky.
Its on the "naturals ice cream" lane. Check him out? I am ordering my p6000 or AVS Sport form him.
Cheers,
PS. I know Vineet at Poona motors, but not much of a Performance person, if you know any performance person for a Skoda 1.8 in Pune please PM me the details thanks a lot.

vikram18, the one recommended by zakaaaaasss has a lot of variety as told to me by a friend. He is probably more of a distributor hence has a large variety. I would prefer Milan subway in Bombay where there are a couple of good shops with some nice alloys. I guess Saifee is one and if I remember the name correctly there is one named Bombay tyres. I had bought alloys for my Zen from one of them and they had some cool alloy designs. If possible retain the stock alloys and store them. Will prove helpful when you plan to sell your car off.

He is asking me for 4900 each for 215/60R15 and these are ES100 and not AVS Sport. I cant find AVS sport for the size I want...
I am not too confident about this guy so if you can PM me Rahuls number on FC road it will be great. I will getin touch with him as well :-)

Thanks a lot mate. Will check him out ASAP. I agree about Vineet. I get the ICE and seat covers done from him; that he really is good at. As for performance, I don't know anyone in Pune. I got a K&N for my civic but that's about it, and that is something almost anyone can do.

Thanks a ton. But since I plan to upsize, what'll I do with the OE alloys? and anyways, I'd much rather get new alloys when i change my car. There could be size/PCD issues with a new car. If I don't get anything in Pune, I'll certainly go look up the guys in Mumbai.
