    I visited this place today. Yes they do have some 98 pcd (actually 98-100 pcd, 8 holes) alloys from AVA (http://www.avawheels.com/mom.htm).
    I asked if they can arrange some OE alloys, they told they will inform me.

    However. some wheels which i saw are -

    Thanks Granduer.

    Ravi: My car is currently on AVA alloys from handsome. It closely resembles the last image (1.jpeg) you put up. Though my choice was conservative it is elegant enough to enchance the looks on my silver coloured linea. I purchased them from hyderabad for 15000/-. The store was a dealer for handsome wheels. The regional manager for handsome was also there at that time (I took his visiting card, if I find his card I can give the number & u can directly talk to him). I got my MAXXIS tyres from the same dealer - 15/205/55. The comfort & handling has gone a notch up. The noise levels have drastically decreased. The only issue is the GC. With four people on board atleast some portion of the underbody rubs most of the hitherto untouched breakers. So I just need to be extra cautious on the breakers. On good roads the performance is too good.

    Nice, Anup can you post some pictures of your linea with alloys.
    Did you get 4 pr 5 wheels at 15K?

    I thought AVA are expensive. Please post the pictures, I am also looking at the last alloys. 15k is as cheap as Neo which is reasonable. I looked at their site but they don't show any 98 PCD but I have seen HS-173 98 PCD model in a store in Trivandrum for which 18k was the quote. I feel they don't have an updated site.

    I got a set of 4 wheels. I will defintely post pics asap. The wheels are multi pcd- 98/100. The beauty of these wheels are when the car is in motion.

    Yes site doesn't have correct PCD information. But all 98 PCD alloys are basically 98-100 multi pcd with 8 holes.

    This is what I don't like, 4 extra holes which we are not going to use and which reduces the strength of the overall structure, a ground reality which I hate to accept.
