    Question Hankook with Alloy for Mehran

    Hi,

    Today I did little research for possible new set of tyres for my Mehran. I have seen Dunlop, Bridgstone and Hankook in 155/70/12 size. I found Hankook to be the good one among these three brands. With exchange difference with my stock General Tyres these are costing me about 6,800 Rupees.

    Also I inquire about Alloy Rims, but all alloy rims was China Made. Now my main question is this that should I buy China made alloy rim (no doubt it will improve the look of the car) or should I stick with stock rims? I'm not a harsh driver but yes I drive very fast on highways. So should I buy these Alloy rims?

    Any prompt replies will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I think - putting chinees alloy in mehran is not a bad idea - for better look and also works well.

    and i will say stick to orignal rims with those plastic covers. mehran ko jitna decent rakho utny achy lagty hay. light tint on back window , neat n clean no sticker and ur good to go! even rims wont suit, u can check my threads of rate my ride( the oldest one) once i had a mehran n kept it real stock n it looked great!
    in small cars bridgestone, yoko and hankook wont make any difference go for any of them which ever is new and fresh! i had bridgestone btw.

    Okay but I'm concerned about the reliability of the Rims. As it may get broken easily on serious jerks or jumps. Or even God Forbidden if it break on high speed... this is what making me think twice.

    Yes I want better looks but more then that I want safety and reliability

    hankook is better if japanese variant otherwise michelin, little costly but no comparison with life
    chinese alloyrims are not bad but make sure they are of same size.

    but for size stock 145 is too small and bad at sharp curve, so this time install 155 /165 as it ill have more grip on road
