Howdy.

I know you want white alloys. And they must be 15". But, I'm here to confuse you, and show you some nice designs that you might actually like, but have a hard time finding in India

Mostly, i'm here to post some nice pics that might help you and others (*cough*cough*).

Nikhil don't go for white, go with a contrast color option. Can be dark gold, grey, copper based on your preference. If you want more sober look, go with hyper silver, you wont go wrong with it.

Rehaan --- We dont have a money tree growing outside our house!! Rays? Volk? Advan Racing?

Those are the stuff dreams are made of.

Jaggu, point noted, but we all think white looks the best. I guess looks are subjective

Prashanth --- Thanks for the pic. They look awesome, but the problem is, it is 17".

I'm looking for something similar nevertheless!

How much approx would these 17" Lenso's cost?
And 225/45/17 tyres would be in the range of 8k each?

Does the ride quality really dip with that size? Any scraping issues?

Should cost somewhere around 30k for a set of4.

Ride quality will definitely deteriorate. That tyre will cost around 8k as you mentioned.

Hmmm. When i see white + white, it kinda makes the car look like a toy. Some contrast is nice.

Like for example - i like the pic on the first page of the car with the red lines on the rims of white wheels.

Nikhil I definitely would agree to what jaggu said. Its gotten too common these days to see a white car with white alloys. I definitely would put my money on this :

^^ White car with brass finish looks really good!

@ Nikhil, a white car with white wheels has been a common site these days! Try something different.
