Also a small piece of metal sheet had to be cut in the process. I felt bad on seeing all these cuttings on my new safari, but then there was no alternative. Next there is another adjustment. The stepney wheel fitting also needs some modification to get it fixed.

Yes.. I am Running 255/65 16" Hankook Dynamics and i have not cut the body parts.. I dont understand why you had to do the same.. I am running these on Stock rims.. I Guess Steer is running 275 and he also did not cut any part for the tires to fit..
Waiting for the pics.. even better.. meet up.

Congrats and all the best.

Nope, i have changed to HR alloys. Yes, even i had that doubt when this person was cutting it. Infact he did the same thing to another new dicor which was there, he had just changed the alloys, but not the tyres.
But next day i had to go back to him to get it cut a bit more since it was still touching the front bumper slightly when i used to turn it to extreme left.

Thanks Ajay, i haven't had any side effects other then those adjustments that i had to make to the vehicle. In terms of ride quality, i have not still driven it for longer distances, and also i wont be able to compare it with stock tyres since i changed it immediately after i took the delivary. I just had covered some 2 kms after i took delivery.

yes, even here they just started with 20K. I just put the deal with other dealers and asked for them to give something good. only thing is you just be firm on what you want. I went to the other dealers and just spoke about the price and did'nt even look at the vehicle. they knew that i am infact going to buy and not just enquiring prices.
If they can shell out another 10k more discount in bangalore, then it can happen in anyother city, unless they are having huge sales, which is not the case though.

Just saw your gallery. What offset are those alloys? i think that's the reason you had to cut some body work.

Have a look at godfather's tyres which are the same size as yours.


And these are your tyres:



As you can clearly see your tyres are jutting out much more than godfather's who is running on OE steel wheels.

Also by chance are you running spacers?

ps: goddy hope you dont mind I took the pic from your garage.
