      I am planning for complete change for my beast i.e Alloys+Tyres.
      I am not sure why this occurs but I see that 160 PCD alloys are boreing and out of date compared to 139.7 PCD alloys. Will there be a problem if a converter is used?

      Rotation every 10000km or 15000km depending on the tire brand and vehicle I guess.
      I completely agree to this,

      My SAFARI stock tyres are 56000KM old and I have got the alignment done once is 10000 Km. 500*5 = 2500 Rs spent and frankly speaking the tyres are good for the next 20000 Kms. As said Stich a time saves Nine...............

      Black-Knight Does not sound like a good idea on a heavy weight like the Safari. Most of the stuff we get locally is made from brittle aluminum, and I don't think that will survive for long...

      That is unbelievably good! Stick to OE alloys and continue your good run.

      Currently I am using stocks rims and not designer alloys. Unfortunate that there are very less options available for SAFARI.
      Its like a beautiful babe with good assets walking with a paragon chappal !!!

      Why don't you go for OEM Safari alloys. Those alloys looks really good.

      I really do not like them again my personal view.
      I really love the new ARIA Alloys gives much better character to the whole body. But they are very very xpensive and also are unavailable in outside marker.
      They are 11k per alloy can you believe. For that price I think i can just build a design of my choice

      Hi
      I see that your SAFARI took a very bad hit. Good to see that its back on the track again. I bet if it was some other car it would have in two pieces.

      Black-Knight,
      What option you adopt to do with your hub centric rings when you changed your tyres with new alloy?
      Did your alloy came with rings to match difference between OE and aftermarket?

      My Alloys matched with the standard fit.
      It was just Plug and Play because the PCD of new alloys matched to the Stock Size of SAFARI.

      I did not do any mods to the HUB.

      I recently replaced steel drums with Alloy wheels from Honda Genuine accessories. Since then i am facing like pull/boat like feeling at low speeds. Also vibration felt at my legs while driving on bit rough road. I did tire balancing @ Madhus but still the issue persists.

      So i wanted to know whether Hub Centric rings are recommended though i bought alloy wheels from Honda Accessories (Honda Dealers). Thanks for your help in advance.
