Default Need Help Selecting Alloys

hi All

Since last 2 months i have been contemplating the tyre change for my 3 yr old zen non PS version.

i have selected the tyre size 155/65/13 thanks to T-BHP.

But regarding selection of 13" alloys i'm totally confused.

i had a tough time finding 5J Alloys in 13" ist,after spending lot of my office hours on net finding them,i found few but their specs are different

i'm trying to find 13"x5J with PCD 114.3 but the ones i found have different

1. Offset/ET
2. Bore/Hub Diameter
3. Some even have BH=4/5

Here,i need help selecting the best values of these parameters.

Maybe Tyre Gurus can suggest me the safest values of these parameters to stick with.

The Values of Hub Diameter i got is

[FONT=&quot]56.75-65.35,[/FONT][FONT=&quot] 54.15-69.75, [/FONT][FONT=&quot]56.75-69.75, 58.4-70

The Values of Offset i have got it

46, 40-45, 40-43, 36, 26

Please help

Update:-

Neo Wheels goes out of door as their offset is negative.

Left with choice of Aura only.

If someone has any other suggestions for the above mentioned requirements,please suggest

Hi Sunny,
I suggest that you visit either B.K.Tyre in Lajpat Nagar Market, contact person is Mr. Atul or contact Gaurav (Wheels Gallery) in Karol Bagh and his no. is 9811051726. Gaurab is an authorised distributor of Plati and League for Delhi region and may help you out for this.
