Congratulations finneyp! The car looks really nice.

Is it necessary that we need to get new wheel bolts (or nuts) when new alloys are fixed?

Thanks Lejhoom.

It is not necessary to get new bolts, I used the same bolts that were on stock rims.

Thanks Finney for the response,

I guess 14" should be the right way..
I checked with Ashwin the other day and he is quoting me 19K for alloys (regular one) and 20K for some black/matt finish.
He is also quoting 3700.00 each for michelin XM1+.

I beleive, I should get some discount on alloy here - I feel its bit costly.
Is there any other make available with 98pcd comparable to aura in terms of quality and price!! let me know if above is a good deal to go with.

Nope. Nothing with the quality of aura will cost you less than what Aura costs. Take my word for it.

Thank you Nikhil for the advise today.

I've almost narrowed it down to,
Yoko A drive OR Michelin XM1+.
Either 185/65R14 or 185/70R14. Can someone help me choose between these two!! I understand that later will have load rating and a bit higher diameter.

my usage for now will be city rides most of the time and a long drive once in a two months or so.
I have got my stock steel rims + Goodyear in decent condition at 31K kms at the moment. Can someone please let me know if I'm going to get something back for a set of 5 for them??

Ketan, 185/65 R14 is the right upsize for Palio 1.2, in other words Tire Calc will show the least odo error for this size!

For your old tyres, you will get some cash back depending on the tyre condition.
Steel rims will fetch you some nominal amount.

yeah, thats another good point that you brought!!
Do people really make changes to their odo after upsizing the rims/tyres?? It will basically change the complete calc!!

Hemanth, I have not tried Yoko tyres, so have no idea, do search the Tyre section for the reviews on Yoko.

Aura had couple of designs in 98PCD, but they are no longer in the alloy wheels business, they've stopped production.
I've heard Neo has 98 PCD alloys, do check out.
