'salem' is also a good variety of mango.

In andhra also you get good varieties of mangoes.
Talk about alloys buddy !!

Not everyone says so. I concur with bigman :
"Neo and Aura must be doing something right if they have won orders from a few car majors."

thats a good choice sticking on to 14 or 15 would be the best option for indian road conditions it would be stil better to stik to 14 inches with 195/60r14 tyres which will take our road condition well it would be also good to chose a single pcd imported alloy wheel for the lancer .imported will be really good on the car what colour is your car and choose weels as to the colour of your car
enjoy great driving exp

plati really have very good designs in their offer and all thir wheels come with a waranty card the waranty cover is only for manufacturing defect and they are very very rare all problems that we come across in alloy wheels are breakage on impact

you should ask themag. he had a set of plati's and one of them did have a defect. they were chrome and one of them turned pale and the finish became really rough.

He knew the guy who he got the alloys from thats why he was able to get them replaced else I dont think it would have been that easy.

hey buddy, go ahead and put on imported alloy wheels to give stunning look for your lancer. first choice is Hijoin(HR) orelse go for League or Plati make....all these basically taiwan makes. if you holding a base model of lancer upgrade your wheels to 14" alloys and tyres....all the very best dude.

wheels and tyres are what keeps your car planted on the road. ASAIMC - no compromise - do NOT buy cheap wheels and tyres just so that the car looks good. Get the correct size and widths - make sure the offset is well within tolerance. Your handling characteristics of your car will change dramatically if caught in an emergency situation if you got the wrong sizes etc.

better to go lightweight if you are planning to swap wheels. Upsizing is not always good but a +1 upgrade is ok. Do not swap 14s for 19's you are going to mess your suspensions and drivechain in the long run.

Hi Guys,

I have finally ordered for Neo wheels after doing some serious enquiry in the market on League, HR, Plati & Aura.

I liked the designs offered by League, HR, PLati and found League much decent in appeal, quality.

So, I have closed on to League ( Model LG-160 , 7spoke) & Neo (Model Dozen SM, 12 spoke), but when the dealer has put thE ALLOYS near the car to get the appeal , Neo's Dozen model was just perfect elegant and neat.

And so I have decided to close in on Neo, well considering IKON has 108 PCD and also League has multi PCD for its models which means that, one need s to fit the wheels amongst those set, need to vey sure on having correct fit.

Mind that over the long run the breaings may screwed.

Neo on the other hand offers perfect match for IKON.Also have got to understand that there are not many models in 108 PCD as compared to 100 PCD.

Neo has decided to stop its popular model dozen 12 spoke for 108 PCD, However , I was lucky enough to have 1 set of 5 wheels still with the co. and they have agreed to sell it me and assured of quality.

Well , considering my normal city driving I wanted to close in on Neo's.

Wheels would be fitted one the dealer receive it toward 15th Aug and I should get it done over this weekend.


I heelp points about what need to done , Should I have the wheels aligment done and wheel balancing done as I am having the alloys fitted?

Wanted to understand details of wht wheel balancing and alingment is all abt?
