Question Need info on shops for wheels and rims in mumbai

Hey guys. I live in Mumbai and need to know of a good place where i can get to see some good alloys(rims). I wouldn't mind going to town side or futher but its got to be worth the distance. So please recommend me some good places where they keep good stock like Hi Join, Lenso or any other brand. Thanks.

Many of us frequent Saifee Tyres in Santacruz because of his straight-forward business style. Honest and absolutely no nonsense. You might do well to check his range of alloys out. I am most picky about alloy designs, yet have bought my last three sets from him only. However, I always call him in advance and tell him to keep a wide range ready to choose from.

Also check out stores on Milan subway.

I did go there and found some real good stuff but i think that place is very expensive. I am looking for a 205/50/R16 profile with a budget between 30-40k max with tyres but at Saifee its 48k.
I havent found anything worthy else where (apart from Saifee) on which i will be spending my cash on but if nothing appeals to me then the last option would be Saifee Tyres.
Are there any good shops in town area?

Why don't you cross check the price of the same alloys + tyres with other vendors? That will tell you whether the quoted price is correct or inflated.

I have been to him and he is indeed good but in 16" he still doesnt have what i want, so he has told me to wait for 15 days untill the next stock arrives. By the way, where will get to see OZ wheels?

Ok now here is the thing. I am really in love with this awesome looking alloy OZ - Canova
But there is a problem, it has 5 bolts where as a Lancer fits with 4. I don't want to sound desperate or anything but i seriously want to buy this badly and need a solution for this issue. Please help and guide me with what all i can do to make this happen. Thanks
