rahulkool - congrats on the new car and the new tires !
since u had driven a friend's palio before changing these tires, how do u find the ride now ? a bit harsher eh ? ! i have the same es100s and ride went a bit harsher after the "upgrade" - but nothing to beat the looks of that tread pattern..

and how much did u spend for them and what was the price u got for the old tires ?

Congrats rahul for the blazing Formula Red beast.
Just a few hours back had gone to the showroom to check out the new Palio MJD, and I also drove the 1.6 Sport. Didn't get a chance to rip it, but whatever I managed, man I was just too impressed.

Cheers,
Dhaval

yeah ride got a bit harsh but wat do u expect with 60 profile tyres ..... grip is excellent and noise level gone down considerably.

Got the tyres for 3300rs each .... for old errr new tyres i got 1700rs each

IMO the ride quality should have improved with 195/60.

Put dark tints and the Fiat rear spoiler and you've got a complete visual package.

Congrats on the purchase Rahulkool. Switch to synthetic oil if possible after 10k kms.

Sadly the original Fiat rear spoiler won't fit the Stile. It requires the rear glass with two holes in it to screw the original spoiler. He will have to fit an after market spoiler. The original one is expensive as well.

The Sport version doesnt come with a spoiler? how about metallic sport pedals?

The sport version doesn't come with a spoiler anymore. If I am not mistaken it comes with sport pedals.

Yes that one had holes in the boot lid glass. I am trying to figure out if the one in the Palio Stile and the GTX is same or not.

Michael Schume on the forum has a Palio Stile with an after market spoiler. He managed to fit one without changing the boot lid glass.
