      he wants to downsize due to lack of options in his current alloys size . He feels if he downsizes he will have better options to choose from .

      and Btw AWB while after market alloys dnt shatter or get damaged easily , thy are some times heavier than OE alloys .

      and when we are talking about alloys they are parts of the car that are SUSPENDED . hence any addition in weight adds a lot of pressure on other moving parts. I suggest apart from choosing the correct size , you also weigh your OE alloys and compare with the weight of the ones you want to replace with. The Term is called UNSPRUNG weight . you cant add to much UNSPRUNG weight to moving parts.

      AWB, in your shoes, I would search harder for new 17" rubber rather than downsizing.

      If you MUST change, look for well known, well made alloys. Your stock alloys are leagues ahead of these ones.

      Thanks riyaz_cobra,
      I have checked weight of OE wheels with 215/60R17 tyre made by Bridgestone dueler D 687 model is 21.2 KG
      Only OE alloy is 9.95 KG

      i am not a big fan of MRF .... i knw that thy make VFM tyres what last reaallly long and provide a decent balance between life of tyre and performance . may be for a 90/110 hp duster with a top speed of 140-150kmph these tyres will suffice . but your xtrail i am sure is quite powerful and has better torque and top speed and is heavier too. so unless you can surely say u wont cross speeds of 140kmph , i would recommend you to look at better options .

      and FYI scores of duster owners change thier Brand new tyres to some thing else just for the heck of it . so if you are still interested in buying these tyres i suggest you ring up a few big tyres shops in your city and ask if any have stock of just removed duster tyres . you cab save a lot of money . this is just for your information . i get just removed show room tyres for all my uncles cars ... which seldom get abused like my cars .

      i can PM you a tyre shop dudes number in chennai if you want to chk prices .

      How important is to Check about mounting surface diameter while selecting Alloy wheels?

      My existing alloys are having 157 MM dia. Is it necessary to match this dia?

      if it is less than by 20 MM is it OK?
      What are the effects of these on car?
      Thanks

      Are you talking about the normal wanderers (with the A/T like tread pattern), or the sport. If it is the normal ones, I will agree. I don't have any idea on the 'sport' variant of the MRF wanderer.

      Thanks,

      It's the Wanderer Sport, the same pattern which AWB has posted above.

      Rs.8800/- Per tyre.

      And another tyre is G032 Geolander but size is 225/65R17 on right side and H/T pattern (G051 )in left size which I have rejected because of not proper upsize .
