    Hi Folks,

    I recently upgraded to a "205/55 R 16 Pirelli P7 Tyres "with "Italian Momo 98 PCD" perfect fit Alloy wheels for my Linea Classic MJD and have attached the pics below.

    I specifically wanted the letters on my tire "PIRELLI" and "P7" to be highlighted and i tried using radium stickers which did not stick on the walls at all.

    Then i used Asian paints "Golden Yellow color" Gloss enamel paint and my wife did a brilliant job in painting those tire wall letters and its been 1 day but the paint have not dried yet.

    Any idea about how long would it take for this paint to completely dry on tyre walls, I've deiced not to use the car to avoid water and rain until it dries up completely. Your advice and suggestions would be of great help to me .

    Thanks
    Srikanth

    Alloys looks nice buddy.

    I would suggest you to park your car in sunlight and I am sure the paint will be dried in a day.

    What is the cost of Momo Alloys..looks amazing..drool material.

    A beautiful choice of alloys just changed the stance and poise dramatically, for the best off course..:)

    So did you order online from Italy? And also, how did you get to know that its 98 PCD, I didnt see it written anywhere while I was browsing the web site.

    Can you tell how does it feel changing to Pirelli P7 tyres. I'm planning to change my new Linea with NCT5 to P7 is it worth it or should i hold on to the NCT5.

    @sriks84 The Alloys and the tires look nice. As pointed out already you can park the car in the Sun or just a thought may be a hair dryer can help if you have one handy at home. Mrs Srikanth does deserve a special appreciation for her patience and those stable hands.

    Cheers,
    Pradeep.
