Here you go again talking about something I have not even said anything against; LET THE TYRES BE! Or do you think the car will have less body roll with Apolo Alnac4gs? I am refering to autocar's mega track test 2016 here's a link: http://www.autocarindia.com/auto-fea...-402973.aspx/0 nobody is bothered about wheelspin. Karthikeyan is talking about body roll two different concepts that you don't seem to be able to grasp.

Hi, while body roll is primarily associated with the stiffness of the suspension, tyres also play an important role - simplistically, higher sidewalls induce more flex, which makes the car roll more during high speed cornering. Low profile tyres have stiffer sidewalls thus reducing body roll around a corner.

Personally, I've seen that a GT TSI with Yoko S 205s rolls noticeably lesser than the stock Alnacs.

Ishaan, Amit: I think whatever needs to be said in your arguments has been. Please quit the debate now. If you guys want to continue, take it offline or via PMs.


Mod Note: Our Baleno RS Review has been taken live at this link (Maruti Baleno RS : Official Review). Please continue the discussion over on the new thread. Thanks!
