Default Alloy Wheels of Auto Expo 2010

They're round.
They spin.
And we love em.

Once upon a time Alloy Wheels were considered the sign of the top end variant. Manufacturers had just one option available, if at all. But things have changed and how.

Here are some of the nicest alloys on the display cars at the Auto Expo.

As usual, BMW had some lovely wheels on their showcars.
Classy. Till the lip. Multispoke. The way alloys should be IMO.

I couldn't decide whether to put Audi or BMW first in this thread. Both manufacturers had some really sweet wheels on display!

One of my friends met me soon after he had visited the VW stall and he was going crazy over the fact that they had squeezed 17" wheels on the display Polo. We went to check them out, and they sure didn't dissapoint!

Default Maruti

Well, Maruti kinda cheated A lot of wheels on their cars were not "OEM", but nonetheless they were nicely chosen and provided some eye-candy, even on some of the cars with highly questionable body-kits.

The best news about the Fiat Punto "Sport" was that level of kit shown was quite likely to be exactly what would go on offer to the Indian buyers. Included in that were some funky dual-tone 17" alloys.

Default Skoda

Skoda had a really neat display for their wheels and tyres. Unfortunately i couldn't get too many pics of the wheels on their display cars due to the larger crowds at the end of day 2.

The alloys shown on the "real" cars weren't so impressive - however Chevy did have some for-display-only wheel candy.

Default Renault

On car riveted my attention me at the Renault stall - and that was the Renault Sport Megane Trophy. It had so many swoops and cuts that if you looked at it for an hour and were asked to draw it, you wouldn't know where to start!

I liked the wheels of Audi Q5. Is it the standard set of wheels or is it optional?
