Thumbs up Got the perfect Alloys for my Swift !

OK i dont know if this is the right section, i guess it is.If its not, Mods, please move it to the correct section.

Anyways,
As i am going to receive the delivery of my Swift today, i had to make arrangements for the Alloys and Tires. It is my usual practice to get new tires as soon as i get the delivery of a car. I tried searching for good designs in Pune but no luck.Shrivz also helped me find one but nothing fruitful came out.
So on Moralfibre's advice i decided to get the Alloys from Mumbai.

Since MF, Shrivz & Karl were going, i went with them so that i had experts with me, helping me to choose a good alloy.

Initially i was expecting to roam around a lot to get the perfect design but then the first shop we went to, had a few alloys on display outside and more inside.

A unique design caught mine & Shrivz's attention immediately. We liked it so much that we had made up our mind, that this is the one but then we still went inside and had a look.Nothing was more appealing the one we saw.
What's more, Shrivz started to lust for these alloys for his Baleno
he even threatened me that he will steal my Swift for them, so i should guard her well Bad Boy Shrivz !

Anyways, i will stop my boring report and let the pics do the talking.







So these are the alloys i finally got for my car, Lenso Samurai SC-01. Excellent design, beautiful finishing.

Thanks, Shrivz, MF, Karl

I am going with Michelin Pilot Preceda 195/50/R15 tyres. I was getting 195/60/R15 in Michelin Pilot Primacy but then i have used Pilot Preceda before so i would like to stick with them.
I know 60 is better than 50 for comfort, i can still remember Shrivz's face when i told him 50 profile.lol

I have dropped the alloys at my tyre dealer few mins back, so that by the time i get the delivery in evening, tyres will be mounted on the alloys and ready to get installed on the car immediately. Will post pics asap.

Amey, 195/50 is the wrong size. Not only for ride but for ground clearance and speedo error. Would suggest you see if 205/55-15 is available.

I know 60 is perfect but wanted to get something low profile for a long time
205 wont be a overkill for swift ?

in 195/60/R15 i am getting Pilot Primacy. I prefer Preceda, never used Primacy.
