Got these REDS Alloys by MOMO installed on my friend's creta. Went ahead with an upsize of 225/55R17. Wheels look great and handling has improved phenomenally.

As my old ride was getting old (14 years passed with it) and had other financial priorities, purchased one used SX-4 from a person I knew well. The car had clocked only 39000 KM in last six years. As the vxi variants do not come with alloys, these are the alloys I bought.

Bought these 15" Machined alloys from the showroom for Ciaz Delta Petrol.
Brand - Maruti genuine accessories.
Got these along with two other accessories for Rs. 25000.

I always wondered what effect downsizing would have on the Duster. Did you downsize from alloys or steel rims.

Could you please put up some pictures showing the whole car? I want to know what difference it makes to the stance. I am considering downsizing to 15 inch tyres on my Ecosport to improve the ride and give it a more butch look.

Saw this Ciaz on my way home today. Looks great not sure about the ride quality and practicality.

This looks great. A friend is getting a new Swift. Did you check if it's possible to upsize to 16 inch? He's interested in 195/55R16. Are these same wheels available in 16 inch?

Upsize to 16 inchers is very much possible, but ride quality will be compromised. I suggest stick to 15.

Im not sure about bronze shade in 16, but there are much more fancier deep dish options in 16.

The worst alloy wheel design I've ever seen in my life. I would take steel rims over these:

Agree with you Rush!! The design reminded me of the Nataraj pencil sharpeners.
