Well, another member here MA5K got Apollo Accelere SH81 black with red lip for hs Baleno in 14" .

The thing is, you cant review alloy wheels until you've used them for sometime. In the first two days what can you say about new alloys, except for "they look shiny and nice"? I guess badboyscad might have used his alloys over some really bad roads and rough terrain and he might be the guy to tell us about it. Apart from that, I think we'll need to wait a few more months before the reviews start pouring in!

Personally, I think they should be of decent quality. I've seen the alloys MA5K got and the finish is really good. Doesnt look like the paint will chip easily.

It's made by YHI, so I think it should be durable as well.

Pulli, you can go for Yoko A drive, but it is marginally lesser than XM1+. Steering is not heavy. For MRF tyres, you can check out here

MRF comes in 185/70 R14 but in ZV2K range. Costs around 150/- Rs less than Yoko A drive.

Why dont you just go in for the Yokohama? They are priced very well too. JK Vectra is total crap. Accelere is ok, but I think Yoko A drive will be better.

Dont confuse yourself so much!

Hi i had also drilled down to silver and with ur comment it just strengthened more. which version u going to buy?i am going for ritx vxi and planning to upsize the tyre to 185/70 R 14. Which was the only concern i had with VXI. May be in the later stages i may go for blackening grill part of the front bumper. after that is done the grill will look like an AUDI.

check out this link http://images.paultan.org/images2/Su...GT-1-Large.jpg .. on light colors like white and silver the blackening of the front bumper will be much more prominent

@studdocs, pullikutty: My father-in-law has also booked a Silver LXI in Kolkata yesterday.

Unfortunately, his plans to upsize tyres from 165/80 to 185/70 has hit a roadblock with the costs involved (roughly 2100x4 = Rs. 8500~)!

Why there is SUCH a big price gap between the sizes is beyond me!

Right now i am in kol i had enquired in one of the Maruti dealer he was not ready for exchange of tyres...other wise if it is working then u can get min 1000 per stock tyre u will get around 5000 for 5 tyres then u can go for upsize which will cost another 5000 if the tyre price is 2100..which brand is having price 2100/tyre let me know...

Apologies, should have made it clearer: It's new tyres of 186/70 minus buyback equals 2,100 (3,300-1,100=2,100).

Will probably sponsor the upgrade as the Ritz looks horrid on the thin tyres!
