Nice wheels and tires, but im not too sure about the color going with the car. Bronze or black wud have been better, personal opinion.

Very nice design, but I feel the white doesn't go too well with the car color; just a personal opinion. Regular aluminum or even black would probably look a lot better.

Thanks Ishaan,I too just fell in love with the alloys..
And thanks for your opinion Guys, but somehow the white ones worked with me and so I went ahead.Personally I liked the white alloys then the bronze ones.Thought about Hyper Silver but that was not available and everyone anyway uses them ;-) But anyway it just personal choice. And if I don't like it later then I'll color the Car itself to Black he he..

Riju, you are right,the model is SC01_WSF only..

EDIT :
BTW, here is the cost break-up,
Alloys : 23500 Rs. Got it from Junction ,jayanagar, one thing I didn't like is that the Guy didn't even reduced a single rupee whereas going price of Samurai is 23k when I checked up with Blueraven a week before. Wish Satya had the alloys instead of this guy but I had no choice as that's the only place who had that design in whole Bangalore.It's always much better experience with Blueraven.
Tires : 4 Yokohama S-drives Rs.3950 each and 1 Apollo Acceler Rs 3200(spare tyre, non-directional). All 195/55/15 .. Done at Sai Iyengar ,Indiranagar.
Chrome nuts : 1000 Rs.
Balancing ,Wheel alignment was not charged.
And a whole Saturday spent ;-)
Regards,
Kaushik

Default Nice pair of wheels

The white wheels look very neat.
I am using Uniroyal 205/45/16 on 16" Momo WRS.
No problems whatsoever.

HI,

Tell me one this is this 16incher creating any problems in the car. Also did you get the Hub rings installed along with the car or just installed the rims.

My car is currently running on the stock alloys and stock tubeless tyres. I plan to upgrade soon

If u have the 14" alloys then i would suggest u to stick with it and just upgrade the tyres say 195/60-14..

Hello everyone,
My 2001 Baleno badly need new tyres, its running the stock steel rims with 165/80/R13, I also have a swift zxi, I am very tempted to transfer the swift alloys & tyres to the Baleno and getting something jazzy for the Swift . The Swift comes with 185/70/R14 . Is this possibe with out any mods ? any downsides of this?

I feel that my Baleno being an early version has lower ground clearance/softer suspension than the later ones, it manages to scrape speed breakers fairly often . Would the tyre and alloy swap aid in increasing the GC?


Cheers
Mpz

mpz yes you can swap the swifts wheels to the Baleno. Both have 100 PCD and shouldn't be a problem.

MPZ - 185/70 R14 is an incorrect upsize for the Baleno. So you will be able to use the Swift rims but I would suggest you put on 185/65 R14 tyres on the Baleno instead of 185/70 R14.

And get some nice 195/60 R15's for the Swift!

Need a little help from the Baleno Fan club. I am buying a Baleno next week. It has 185-60-R13. It has JK Tyres (R&D) Race Track Tyres wrapped round it. Though its good to have those when you are participating in a drag race. But problem is when you are driving in the city. We all know about Baleno's famous ground clearance. I think it reduces it from 170 mm to 144mm. So you know how much I would struggle on the humps and craters.
Now I know all of you must be shouting that its time for an upsize. I have two options.
1> 185-70 - R13 (Keep the ole rims)
2> 195-60-R14 (new rims and new tyres)
I am into a little of spirited driving. I dont want too much of wheel spin and greater control. But going for 2 means a little pain for wallet. Can you all suggest some optimum solution. Also what tyres will I select if 1 and what if 2?
For 2 I thought of F1, but heard it has lot of complaints and is soft, making it prone to punctures.Please suggest.

Go for option 2 definitely, as it bring a lot of difference from the 13 inchers. This is the best compromise for the baleno.

Put in michelin or Yokos if you can stretch you budget a little.
