    I have put 15 Inch Alloys and Yokohoma Tyres - 205/55

    Planning to change the alloys with new set of tyres, as the present tyre life is almost ending.

    Any suggestions for Alloys?
    Any suggestions for Tyre size?

    I have put in Michellin Primacy 3ST two months back on all four tyres. Spent approx Rs 21K. Driven for approx 5K km as of now. Besides the known/default benefits of tyre upgrade, here is my ten cents....

    Pros
    1) Good Handling
    2) Reduction in noise compared to OEM Appollo Accellere

    Cons
    1) On the expensive side

    Most of the alloys i look at the indian online sites doesnt look that good over punto (may be my personal view) but the good ones are in Ebay UK which are very costly to outsource :(

    Would be glad if you can find a good one here. I am still looking for any custom alloy makers though.

    Check Saimagwheels and check if you like any design on their online shop and if you like then go ahead with it. 205 55 15 is the good tyre size and you nice stance for your car.

    205/55/15 will further lower your GC substantially. 195/60/15 would be the correct size. Or else put alloys with a negative offset to arrest the possibilities of the wheel touching insides of the wheel well and upgrade to 205/60/15.

    Your point is right, it has reduced the GC a lot, fed up of hearing crashing sound in bumpy roads :(
    Will soon be relacing it to 195/60/15 tyre size.
    But i personally like low profile tyres 17 inch with good alloys. Bcos of GC issue am confused what to do.
