Take a look at this Tata Altroz XM; it now sits aftermarket alloy wheels that are flashier than OEM units that range-topping trim comes with.
Tata Altroz comes equipped with a set of flashy 4-spoke 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels from the factory. However, only the top-spec XZ and XZ(O) trim get them. The entry-level models come shod with 14-inch steel rims, instead. But, it isn’t a tough job to find alloy wheels for the Altroz as an aftermarket fitment. Here’s one, which has been fitted with 10-spoke 16-inch aftermarket units and looks better than the OEM ones. The wheels on this Altroz come from a Malaysian brand – Rays Club. According to the owner of this Altroz, he bought these rims for Rs. 24,000 only, which makes these rims quite affordable as well.
The owner claims that he exchanged his stock steel rims for Rs. 400 each, to get these stylish mags. Hence, the exact price of these wheels comes up as Rs. 25,600. Talking of the tyres these rims are draped in, they are 195/55 section MRF ZVTS tyres. This is the stock tyre size that XT trim of the Altroz comes with. Also, the owner has painted the front brake callipers and the rear brake drums of the Altroz in golden colour to match the High Street Gold paint scheme of the bodyshell.
Talking of the technical specifications of the Altroz, it measures at 3,990 mm in length, 1,750 mm in width, and at 1,523 mm in overall height. It is offered with 2 engine options – 1.2L petrol and 1.5L diesel. The Revotron petrol motor is a 3-pot naturally aspirated motor that is capable of churning out a peak power output of 86 PS at 6,000 rpm and peak torque of 113 Nm at 3,330 rpm. The Revotorq oil burner, on the other hand, develops a max power output of 90 PS at 4,000 clicks and max torque of 200 Nm in between 1,250 to 3,000 rpm. Both of these engine options are currently offered with a 5-speed MT only. However, an optional AT would soon be offered with the Altoz, as confirmed by the carmaker.
