Default 16" alloys, dark inside, chrome lip. Suggestions?

I'm looking to get new wheels for my silver Swift. Does anyone know of any good rims that have a chrome lip and are dark on the inner portion. I would prefer dark yet metallic (i.e. titanium coloured etc).

Also, should be multi-spoke (at least 7 spokes, if not more) otherwise with the Swift one can see through almost to the other side.

And its got to be 16".

Please post any suggestions you have, with pics or links if possible.

ceckout with Bombay Tyres at milan-subway or Saifee Tyres at santacruz,you can take your swift there and put on it and check it

Try the new Samurai series from Lenso. They have multispoke in the titanium finish. They are said to be super light weight. Saifee at Santacruz has a great range to choose from.

Look at something like what Hydrashok got for his car but a in darker finish than the Silver colour he got. Meets your requirements to the T I think.

You could see the rims on the swift in 'alias' garage. They look great.They are the samurai series from Lenso. Also rims on Hydra's hatch are nice, 16''. Check them out.

You can check out my design if you want. This design is available in 16" ,with the spokes being in gunpowder finish also!!! Well it does not have 7 spokes, For that the design on Hydra's swift is the best!!!

Good to see so many people suggesting the alloys on my Swift They are Lenso MWs. Pics in my gallery.

Here's a post in the Alloy-Wheel Show-off thread by KPZen with the MWs photoshopped Black: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/803287-post503.html

Here are a few more ones I liked from Lenso:

Lenso SHU

Like JayD, I also like the SHUs. The SHUs look much better in person. The pictures don't bring out the real look. There are 4-5 of these in White (on white Swifts) on our City. They look pretty good. One other thing about the SHUs is that the 16" rims with the lip look bigger than 15" -- other designs with lips in 16" look a lot like 15" rims from the side. SHUs in Black should look pretty hot!

Choice of rims in 16" is pretty limited. Start looking for them as early as possible, to avoid order-and-wait delay.

Thanks guys.. awesome suggestions. I went down to Saifee today and told him to get his hands on the Lenso SHUs and the Lenso MWs, and another one from the Lenso catalogue. Hopefully next Saturday I can post a few pics of the new wheels here.
