Default need help in choosing alloys for my santro......

hiii guys..recently dad booked a santro XO (mid night grey its a new color,almost looks like black) so i am planning to put alloyes and upgrade the tyers...

Guys i need some help in choosing the right tyers, i am in a confusion to go for 165/65/r13 or 175/60/r13...

I may go for 175/60/r13 will it be ok for santro which are the brands available in this size ,how much will be the mileage drop..


Here are some pics of the alloyes which i liked ,so i want my co bhpians to select the right one....

Well, 2,3,5,6.

Would prefer 6 first I guess. Then 2 then 3

Don't go for multispoke as it will be difficult to clean.

Get 175/60 R13.

Are you getting the Limited Ed car with tacho?

The second one from the top is the same as mine ,you can check out my garage for pics.
IMHO the M6 replica`s will not look good in 13`.
i liked the fourth one (multispoke) ,it`ll be difficult to clean but it looks good.
You can go for 175/60r13.

I like the First design and the last one. I'm running 175/60/13 on my Santro with no problem whatsoever.

Btw check out this alloy design i came across recently, its in 13" size and will fit Santro perfectly.

id say the 4th or the 5th. the 6th one wont look good in 13". the smallest for that one should be 15". check my garage for more pics on the last one.

a fellow bhpian faithless_1984 has rims similar to the 2nd one on his black santro. and they look amazing. check the alloy wheel showoff thread for more pics.
