    di nyo naman kasi nilagay from where ba kayo. it would help a lot to narrow down the choice of shops.

    anyway, i'm from marikina and initially looked nearby lang. nearest to me is DKC tire center. sample fitted a concept one 17" tuner rims, pero masyadong naging sporty ang look ng altis ko. also, natakot din ako makalog utak ko at pati car fittings sa 215/45/17 na gulong. very silky smooth kasi ang ride sa stock yoko aspec 185/70/14 ng altis. i know it will be a rougher ride when upsizing your rims, the question lang is how rough can you go. so decided on either the 16" and 15". kaso ang hirap din maghanap ng different designs for 16", and parang manipis pa rin ang 205/50/16, so decided to concentrate sa 15" na lang. i liked the 15" stock asterisk design ng altis, hirap lang maghanap ng 2nd hand. sakto naman nakakita ako ng brand new sa intensity, p.tuazon, cubao. though sabi nung una orig toyota daw ito, turned out rota copy pala sya. no regrets kasi mas robust sya tingnan kesa sa toyota counterpart. mas mataba ng konti ang spokes, which will be much noticeable when you have them side by side. DKC P. Tuazon is a good source also if makakita ka ng design na magustuhan mo. aside from the free wheel mounting and balancing, free na rin ang pa-nitro. mataas din sila mag-quote for trade-ins.

    + 1 on this shop. They also have a branch along J.P. Rizal St. in Marikina.

    Aside from Rotas, the 15" rims from a ES Civic will also look good.

    As from above, you can try P. Tuazon in Cubao. Tabi-tabi sila doon so you can shop around. To save you time though, unahin mo na yung DKC and also, just a few meters away from them if coming from EDSA, yung Intensity din. I suggest you go with brand new na with trade-in. Kung di pa laspag stock rims/tires mo, baka makakuha ka pa kahit 3-4K (basing it from my stock Altis mags/tires). Average price for Rota 15" is from 16-18k, then if you go with new Westlakes, mga around 9k for a set. That's P27k all-in, minus whatever trade in value of your old wheels, so tingin ko pasok na yung P25k mo.

    For me though, nung una nga plano ko is get not so expensive rims, then cheap tires na lang muna. After a year or two, saka na i-upgrade. But having been used to Yokohamas for about three of our rides na... I decided to shell around 4k more for the A.Drives vs. the Westlakes. Mukhang malayo pa rin kasi talaga quality just from the looks of them, so I guess I got my money's worth upgrading to Yokos. Sa Intensity ako nakabili, and they ordered my tires pa... so you can try and ask if they can order you the Yoko Aspecs. It may be cheaper than the A.Drives. May not be as grippy than the latter, but it's a quiet and comfortable tire. Even driving a bit harder than usual, it hasn't let me down naman. Aspec 185/70/14 ang stock tire ko dati, and I have run it to 160kph sa SCITEX and STAR tollways.
