Default Alloys for Fiesta

Hey guys,
we are getting a silver Ford Fiesta and will most probably change the tyres and rims.
Here are a few pictures of a few alloys i liked from League. The tyre size i am looking for is 14" with 195/55R14 tyres or 185/60R14 tyres, referebly Potenza GIIIs or Yokohama's.






These are from League and the one below is the one on N_C Octavia. They are available in 14" and have two colour options - Plain silver and a two tone colour i.e silver on the outside and black from inside.



There are others also but i couldn't find the link to them. The other one is the BSA 307.
Thanks guys.

Which colour car are u getting? The first would look real nice, but i think the design is a bit too common.

The 2nd and 3rd are a bit too Bling..

Colour would be the silver one. I liked the first one alot.
The Fiesta has such a boring side profile that i am actually confused as to what would look better on the car.

Try lg 194..they also look good and will go well with slightly curvaceous profile of the fiesta.

I like the second one from the lot, but I think you can do better.

The first link is good...would definetly suit the fiesta.
Also, check for the same alloy in hyper black.
I think it would do justice to thesilver color..

The first One is out of Stock so that's out.
I guess i will have to go to the shops and decide then.
He is saying that 185/65R14 Potenza GIII's are for 5K after exchange and alloys will cost apprx 17K.
All this is before bargaining so expect the price to come even further down to 20K or less.
Will go down to his shop and take pics of the ones i like and post them.

None of the above is my answer.
Although if I "had" to pick one from these it would be #1
Any more choices?

Lambo LG191 would look good on a Orange Fiesta. Check some more out and if possible try the shortlisted ones on the car at the time of purchase and then select which look best at that moment.

Lambo, when you get the alloys, what will you do with the factory fitted wheels? Are you getting a good exchange on them?

I'm booking an Optra VGIS tomorrow and I wanted to fit 15 " alloys, so was wondering how to go about it. Should I ask the dealer himself for a further discount and get the car without wheels, or should I take the factory wheels to a tyre shop and get an exchange on them?
Also, how much should I expect in exchange for the original Optra wheels and tyres?

I'd appreciate some advice from you guys.

Well,
You should expect around 1800-2000 bucke per Optra wheel.
We are paying 5000 bucks w/o bargaining to exchange our MRF ZV2k for Bridgestone Potenzas.
We generally keep the rims if we upsize to the same size but if we upsize from 14"-15" for eg, we would try and sell off the rims to the tyre shop for how much ever he says + try and get 50 bucks more.
