Update.... Instead of the ICE, I went for rubber upgrade. Spent around 50K.

20K goes for the alloys and 30K for the new rubber.

Pics below.

Well I went for 17" alloys 7.5 JJ along with 225/50/r17 wheels. There are goodyear Excellence. Earlier I had 15".

What I can say after hitting chandigarh roads for a few hours, cornering is near to a sedan. I would say premium brand effect. Feels like you are driving a Merc or BMW. Handling is simply superb. Cant go wrong with these 17". Recommended for any Innova owner.

One thing I can say, people keep looking at the wheels when I drive the car. Feels good.

The car handles better than ford ikon atleast. I can take turns at 130. Body roll is negligible.

Car has run 45000 km. Going on for the service. Will update after that. I changed oil at 35000 so 40000 service had no oil change so engine will be lot smoother after service. Lets see.

I always remove the petes things from car before service.

From a dealer in ludhiana. Left my email at petes site and they forwarded the details of the distributor. He on my word, ordered and got me delivered with 3-4 days.
