Hello All,

Have been an avid reader and now finally a member. Thank you Moderators for accepting me into the family.

I own a 2020 Creta E variant, which comes with steel wheels. I want to upgrade to 17 inch Alloys and am really fond of Momo Revenge series. I am contemplating to go with Matt black Revenge EVO 5x114.3 PCD 8 inch wide, offset 28 and with Cretas higher variant stock 215 / 60 R17 tyre configuration. I am concerned if there would be change in ride dynamics and due to this offset any rubbing against the suspension or wheel walls.

Please provide your expert advise. Thanks!

Hi Plymouth_Fury, I guess the upgrade you are looking for should be just fine. I have seen many Creta's sporting with the MOMO Revenge Series Alloys, quite a popular design I must say. However, I have seen these on the 1st-gen model.
Anyway, just incase you wish to do any study on the topic, you can refer the below link. Gives you some go insights about the upgrades you plan on.

P.S.: I too have upgrade my OEM set of wheels to the 17" with the 8J alloys. You can check them in my earlier post.

Looks too good! I'm looking to replace the rims on my '11 525d soon, considering TSW and BBS for now. If you don't mind sharing, how much did you pay for these?

So amongst others, I have 4 of these, waiting to go on my car when it's finally done. Getting a hold of them was quite an experience in itself.

For the uninitiated, these are BBS LMs in 18" x 8.5J (unless I remember wrong). They are extremely light, two-piece forged aluminium alloy wheels developed by BBS as a street wheel to complement their E88 motorsport wheel, which was basically the default wheel for all Le Mans and GT cars from the 70s onwards.

Thank you Ashvek3141

As I am also upgrading to 17inch, what is the ideal tyre upgrade?
From 205/65 R16 to 215/60 R17 OR 225/55-R17

Attached is the calculation I have done and from the looks of it, 225/55 - R17 is Ideal? please suggest.

Was that for the alloys only or 99k inclusive of the PS4's ? Thanks!

Hi Plymouth, personally I am using the 225/55/R17's on my 2015 Creta Petrol. I am guessing your's is a Diesel Creta and 225's should do just fine. I had initially planned on upgrading to the OEM recommended 215/60/R17; but than just took the plunge and got the 225's and I am pretty happy!
I really love the way the car handles now, no more swaying on turns when driven hard. The improvement is significant in terms of handling, but a slight compromise on the ride quality due to the thinner side wall.

Having said all of that, my car will be out of the extended warranty in another month and hence I went ahead with the tire upgrade over and above the OEM recommended spec. Since, your's is a brand new car, I would suggest you check with you respective dealer and understand the warranty conditions just incase you plan on installing the 225/55's. However, with the 215/60/R17, the warranty shouldn't be a problem in my opinion as that is the OEM spec for the SX(O) variants.

Quick tip: I happened to read on the FB 2020 Creta Group that the OEM Diamond Cut alloys are retailing for ~30k. If that is anywhere true, I think you should grab the deal. Those OEM diamond cut wheels look sweet.

Good Luck!

Check this Accord out. Am guessing he got that wheel arch extension due to the wider rims & tyres splattering water / mud on the car.
