Fitted Neowheels Illusion MBM Alloys on my Tiago. Design Choice:
Since I bought my Tiago XZ Petrol Espresso Brown without alloys, started looking for third party alloys (I, for one, adore Hyundai OEM
diamond cut alloys!!!).
Came to know about the Neo Wheels
brand through a nearby tyre shop in Hosur. While looking for more information about the brand, I got into their facebook page
and they had plenty of pictures of their alloys fitted in different cars. Got attracted to the Illusion Alloy at first sight and decided to go with it. Made the order by paying the booking amount. Installation:
Installation didn’t go as smooth as I would have liked and in the end, alloys had to bear some scratches due to the shop guy’s poor handling of alloys in the installation bed. And it hurts…….! I would strongly suggest to choose a good shop, do the installation in slow pace and when the shop guys have enough time (around 1.5 to 2 Hours). “Don’t go to the shop in the late evening / shop closing hours”. Details about the Alloy:
Brand: Neo Wheels
Model: Illusion MBM (Matt Black Machined)
Price: Rs. 21,900 for set of 4 Alloys
Rim Size & PCD: 14 Inches, 108 mm, 4 Bolt Holes Did I consider upsizing Tyres?
Yes. I thought of upsizing to 15 Inch alloys and tyres. So posted a question in the forum mycarhelpline
and eventually decided not to upsize.
Below is the question and answer: Other Points:
1.Look how different the alloy looks in plain view and in installed view. I will recommend to decide the design by looking at the alloys in “fitted-in-a-car” condition.
2.Neo Wheels website has a feature to choose and try their alloys on different cars (they call it Wheel Match
). When I chose my alloys, Tiago wasn’t in the list though. Some more pics during Installation:
