Two Reason:

1. This car is driven for 100 Km Minimum daily, Even more sometimes, I have 25000 KMS on the ODO in a span of 6 Months, So for me buying Yokos Every 6 Months that to 17" tyres would have been very heavy on the Pocket

2.Wanted to check out the performance of the car in 15".And to tell you i am hugely satisfied, Both with the Tyres and the Rims.


@ aZa : Thanks for helping me choose these!!! I owe these to you and Faithless completely!!!

The alloys+tyre combination looks awesome.

How much did you pay for alloys+tyres?

Really good-looking rims there! Congrats!

I've seen the same rims in hyper-silver on Nikkibike's Swift. They look even better in person.

@ djay99 :Thanks Bro, The tyres and alloys costed me 30k. 15k+15k. These are prices without exchange or buyback of old tyres/alloys.

@hydrashok: Thanks, Yup these rims look good in person because you get to see the lip, Even the rims on your swift are amazing!!!

Hmm.. you are the only doubtful one, who was sitting beside me. Well, yes.. your happiness is all together more important. though these alloys too looks cool
