the fiat palio alloys cost 4700 per piece and you have to order them as they take 15 days to arrive.so for a set of four,it would cost rs.18,800.

They are available here in any Fiat showroom in Pune as far as I know.
And yes they are expensive but worthy.You can not find their quality in any Aura product and they look nice as well.

Guys,

Just called the FIAT showroom accessories guy and he quoted 21,000 for a set of 5 OEM alloys. Should I go for it?

Also, tried to find the phone number for Sai Iyengar, so email Ashwin asking for a quote.

Will update on reply.

Cheers,
Rajan

Payam, Palio OEM Alloys are manufactured by Aura (Hindalco).

Guys,

Just called Ashwin of Sai Iyengar Tyres (Thanks Finney for the phone#).
Here is the quote:

AURA alloys : Rs.17600 for a set of 5
Michelin Energy XMA 1+ 185/65/R14 : Rs.9250 for a set of 5 (After Exchange)

Rs. 500 for Wheel balancing and Rs. 700 for chrome nuts.

Ashwin tells me that Energy XM1 is stopped and XM1+ is the new product with improved technology.

Should I go for this?

Cheers,
Rajan

Michelin Australia

Rajan, go ahead with the upgrade and do post some pics here after you are done.

OE alloys seems to be too common. i'm planning to have those aura EO1455 for my palio. Are they wide enough(5.5J) to have 195/60 tyres on it.

Default What Tyre size for Palio stile sports 1.6 ??

If thing goes as planned i will be getting delivery of my palio 1.6 end of this month.
after paying for the car i will be left with very little money
i have posponded the ICE and seat cover upgrade .....
but i want to change the tyre straight away. which tyres you guys suggest. i don't want to go overboard with the width of the tyre but it should provide good grip in braking an cornering as i have heard front wheel locks pretty easy on this car as there is no ABS and also tyre makes lot of noise while cornering.

the stock alloy and tyre size is 5.5 J x 14 / Tubeless 175/65 R14

is there anything like if i change the tyres under particular kms i will get more cash on the stock tyres ?
and i how much i can expect on the stock tyres ??

Thanks,
Rahul
