Mustang, Konig is being imported into India by Preeti Trading Corporation, Mumbai.

In Delhi, you can find Konigs with Gyro (HP Fuel Station, Moti Bagh) and Auto Marc, Defence Colony Commercial Complex.

But Konig in India can't beat the range of HR's available with Sai Mag. For me, HR is also a competition to Konig; HR is no local brand, there quality is well recognized. Then you have Lenso's placed higher above HR. Lenso is available with Just Wheels, Karol Bagh (Opposite Bikanervala).

The inner hub of the alloys had to be corroded to increase the diameter of the hub to fit it in the car.

I know i'm struggling a bit here to explain but hopefully i was able to explain some part of it.

Oh!
Then, If you feel vibrations at high speeds inspite of pucca wheel balancing, you'll need to shift to Aura alloy rims.
Lets hope there won't be vibrations, ever.

Harish,

Is that applicable to any alloy design for Spark or only for the model u have chosen ?

IMO it was done because of a hub dia mismatch.

Thanks for the information. I wasn't aware of this aspect, but considering the designs and cost, I prefer HR. Moreover, Sai Mag Guys are surely more supportive than PTC, Mumbai. PTC didn't even answer my call properly.

Meanwhile, he also informed of the video which has been uploaded on Youtube.

Anyone in Delhi NCR looking for alloys should pay them a visit. They have a HUGE collection of alloys, and if you're hunting for something greater than 13" then be prepared to spare an hour atleast.


So You Have Gone There ... Good

Amazing guys, while talking of team BHP, I gave your reference. Gautam remembered you as well as this thread. That time, I was powered with a mediocre cellphone camera, so only took the pics of the alloys shortlisted. I will be going tomorrow to pick the alloys, so expect some amazing pics.

Their collection has increased a lot when I compared my experience with your first pics. By the way, thanks for promoting an organisation providing quality alloys at competitive prices.

Warm Regards
Tanveer Singh

Guys, got HR alloys today for Santro Xing from Sai Mag. Yet to put them to use as the tyres have not been purchased. In the meanwhile, take a virtual tour of Sai Mag Wheels.

The Magline series alloy has been developed using Magnesium and are very light.

Gautam told me that they'll be introducing Full Machined Colour finish and more designs in Coloured Chrome. He showed me a full fledged catalogue and it was truly amazing. Wish, I could have all of them.

Moreover, for all those who love White alloys, there present stock had some amazing designs.

Mods, I had to make this subsequent post as the earlier one was not letting me put up more pics. So, understand my case.

Thank God, limited designs were available that time in 13", else the choice could have been much more difficult. I got the Full Machined Gun Metal finish.

Drive down to Delhi, and that too from Ludhiana. Nice to hear it.

Well, The limited number of time I've been to Punjab, I've seen more alloys than in Delhi. People seem to love Chromes on their cars in Punjab and even in a place like Sri Fatehgarh Sahib, majority of cars had alloys.

Do mention Team BHP whenever you visit them.
