Dear Agrawal, Alto is not a powerful car so mielage and power loss will be in effect if you go for alloys. But riding would be good


Happy Driving.

Dont go for more than 12" alloys (neo & aura has good designs),and the tyre width 155/65/12(good year tubeless), if u try bigger size definitely it will touch the body while taking sharp turns & suspension & steering becomes hard

Alloy wheels are basically for good looks. Good quality alloy wheels are lighter than the conventional steel ones, and therefore, may slightly improve mileage, performance & braking.

Tubeless tyres go well with Alloy Wheels. Wheel/Tyre size should be restricted to the company recommended size - 12 inches in this case. Bigger tyres will affect the ride quality & suspensions of the car.




Honesty is not a Spare Wheel that you pull out when in trouble. It's a Steering Wheel that keeps you on the right path throughout the life's journey.

options in alloys in size 12"-that of the Alto will be hard to come by.

Upgrade would be 13" alloys with 165/70/65/13 size tyres

Alloy brands

-HR
-Aura

 are good indian brands.

Cost for new alloy per wheel would be about 3.5K-4K for 13" size.

Old rims will fetch 200-250/wheel

Old tyre-depends on the brand and the mileage done on them.
