    the common and only rims i like cost around Rs. 17000 a set. some prices vary till 15000 too so we'll have to check. i regret to inform you that i currently do not have any pics but shall be back shortly. this is all for the rims with the Toyota monogram on them. otherwise, there's a whole lot of variety to choose from.

    as for your own, give them to the shopkeeper in a partial exchange. you buy his, give your own, he evaluates them and then gives you a final cost.

    There are these rims with loads of spokes, look really nice, they were available in 13000 15 inch so i'd recommend that and 205/55/15 kumho ecsta supra 712 tyres with em. the tyres will cost u around 17000.

    Rim prices vary from Rs. 8-20000+. it all depends on the brand, look and size. on the average, good ones cost around Rs. 15000/set (pair of four)

    Brand new cars here come with tires of the "General" brand which start bubbling after 17-20000km. it is therefore most adviseable to get them replaced as soon as you get the car for a better resale value.

    Michellin cost Rs. 4500/tire. Dunlop and Yokohama, around Rs. 2800/tire. this is the average price m telling of a 185/70/13 here in Isb. you have not mentioned which city you'll be staying at to help members from there guide you better.

    exchange of just the rims might give you a discount of Rs. 1500 to the max. a combination of the tires AND the rims would go deeper, much deeper to as much as Rs. 8000 as well.

    yes for sure m from lahore

    as ppl said abt the price of rims it was almost true u can have 15" rims frm 12 to 16000 easily ... and for tyres it is around 3000rs each averge ..

    so any way major point is just to get an idea .. for rest u need to go to wahdat road near abpara chowk .. AKbar chowk new faisal town .. anarkali neela gumbad .. these are major markets for rims and tyres jus go there ... u got idea of money ... so just go and select rims and tyres

    best of luck !!

    You should go to Toyota Walton. They sell rims for Rs 17000 (Four). These rims are in three different designs and are with Toyota monogram. They also sell tyres but they are expensive. Rs 5000 each. Buy tyre from 'Neela Gumbad'. Bring tyres to Toyota Walton and ask them to replace rims and tyres followed by whell balancing and allignment. Go back to the dealer from where you bought tyres and sell old rims and tyres. Total cost

    Rims 17000
    Tyres 14000
    Fitting 500
    Old tyres -3000
    Total 28500.

    This is what i did with my 2D Saloon in April this year. The rims and tyres look good and Toyota Walton did a good job with balance and alignment.
