Talking Pics: New Tyres and Alloys for my OHC

I was running the stock Bridgestone tyres S322s on my OHC from the time I had bought the car since they had run around 24,000 kms only. I was very keen to get rid of them and add alloys along with new tyres but then though of using up the stock tyres till the end of their life. Finally now at 50,000 kms the time finally came to get new rubber and some nice alloys for the Honda.

I first chose the alloy design. Saifee tyres at Santacruz has a great range to choose from. I went in for a 15" design from Hi Join. Its grey with silver combination. Had the alloys sent to my friend's shop International Tyres at Opera House where my tyres were waiting. I chose the Yokohama S Drives in size 195/50 15 The wheels reached Opera house at around 4 pm yesterday. Tyres were mounted and kept ready. Just went this morning and got them fitted along with F50 for company. Just love this new set of rubber. Its got awesome grip and handling will surely improve alot. Maybe I can push the car a bit more as well. Thats enough from me for now. I'll let the pictures do the talking.

Thanks Ishan. Was waiting for your comments. Saw atleast 10 designs before choosing this one. Liked it because of the grey in it.

Dippy congratulations on the upgrade. You said Hi-Join was the brand you picked. My eyes are playing up now, does logo on the alloys resemble the Honda logo ?
