Hey Buddy... The car looks smokin' hot!!! Nice Wheels and Alloy combo you've got there.

Where did you pick them up & what price (if you don't mind).

Cheers!

Thanks Goutham! I got it from Tyrestore in Greams Road- a member here. Came to under 32k, that is without exchanging my stock tires and rims...

@ph03n!x --

Powerful car!
Sexy color!
Hot wheels!
Great tires!

Super VFM buy

I feel you shd have gone for 195/60 profile, you ride would have been much better.

black rims and the colour of your car makes it a killer on road.Any idea on fog lamps to complete that manacing look in front.

Congrats ph03n!x for the Getz CRDi.

cheers and happy and safe driving,

karthik.

It definitely is!! Deepak (Tyrestore) gave me a good deal, and the quality of the work done is excellent- there were absolutely no vibrations till 150, though at 160 i felt a small shudder on the wheel- not sure if it was the road.

Thanks anand! 195/60 n 15" is a no-no because it is not the right up-size. i would have to stick with 14" then.

Apart from this, we weren't sure if it would foul with the fender/mudflap with a 195/60/15.

It will touch the left rear wheel well. Anyways this size is way too wrong and tall for a Getz. No point in even trying.

Quick question- There are two temperature warning lights in the console, one for high (orange) and one for low temperature (blue). I know what the high temperature light means , but what about the low- does it mean I should drive the car differently- not revving, or idling until it goes off, or driving normally at least until the car warms up enough for the light to go off- I mean, is it just an indicator, or does it imply something?
