Welcome, Lotto. Read the rules, blah blah blah

There are plenty of members with Balenos and quite a few of them are serious modders - just use the search function for threads with 'Baleno' in the title or contact members like Samurai...

PS: We also discuss cars or other automobiles that we dont own, so join the fun when other cars are discussed too!

The first lesson you will learn in Team-BHP is that tyres and alloy upgrades are not really cosmetic mods, although many people do them for that reason.

Your budget is your limit.

You have two ways of doing it. First, go to Modification & Accessories section and name your budget, most members will generously tell you what fits in that budget. Second, go through all the Baleno threads and research the possibilities, and then make an informed decision about what you want.

hi, thank you guys...did my 2 cents worth of seraching the forum got some ideas about tyre upgrade.
Went straight to my tyre dealer, asked his opinion, finally upgarded my tyres to 185/70/R 13 Michelin Certis and went for the OE alloys (Aura-13") of Maruti, mainly to take care of the warranty. The car feels planted and does not compromise on ride quality.

Would really appreciate if some one can guide/tell me a place where i can get SPARCO accessories in Chennai. Tried searching the forum but could not get information about anyone dealing in SPARCO accessories.
