BBS from speed shop from chennai seems good. But cost you over 1 lk. Autopsyche had couple of nice alloys for less than 30 k. Do check with him.

18" would be too much and the ride comfort will go down...also i would have to keep replacing the alloys cuz of the bad roads here..

if you are planning to go above 16. prices start from 5000 per piece for both. 1 tyre 1 alloy = 10000. max for 17 inches u should be talking about 60k. prices here also depend upon the design of the rims as well

Are you sure about getting 205/55 R 17? Considering the stock Octy comes with 195/65 R15, that would make a difference of 71.63 mm in rolling circumference or 3.59 %. Not advisable. I believe the correct tyre upgrade would be 205/50 R17, unless I got the Octy's stats all wrong.

I think anything beyond 17s on an octy would be pushing it too far, optimum size being 225/45/R17s for sure, have also fitted 235/40 and 235/45 without any trouble (Mostly using Silverstone FTZ tires). Have about 12 different designs in 17inch available with me varying in silver, hyper black and chrome finishes... will try to get you pics of all designs.

Ahh i have the perfect one for you, i have put one very similar design in thin multi spokes in hyper silver where the disc is really seen even when the car is running. They look really hot on a red 1.8T rider. WIll get you pics tomorrow for sure. Later.
