Hey Robin,

I like 1 & 4 from what you posted but, have seen several other designs which I feel are better. I think we need to go alloy hunting can take you to a few good shops.

If you have narrowed down to these 4 alloys I would vote for #3.
Unless you are member of "bling" club don't bother with #2

Well for Pappu, go to this shop opposite Metro Motors in Marine Drive.
He has some nice rim designs there and he will hold it against the wheel for you but just bargain really hard and check the date of manufacture of the wheels.
It's calle general vulcanising works or something like that.
For your rim colour, look for hypersilver/hyperblack as chrome will look too bling.
I kinda like N_C's alloys and from the ones listed above i would go with option 2 but there really are much better ones available.
Go to Pal tyres in Lamington Road or Pappu at opera house.
Suburb side, i have heard that Saifee and Bombay tyres are good.
