Nice review. Can you post some daytime photographs of your Palio?

Hope you've got the seatcovers and bumper sorted by now. Long term owners of the 1.2 Palio are hard to come by nowadays. Glad to find that they're still out there!

thats a wrong upsize & you have lost some ground clearance & a bit of comfort & also some error will creep into your odometer....

I will try to take some more photographs. Car is not at home during day time(Dad's car) and even I am not home. Thank you The other day some miscreant broke the LHS ORVM while the car was parked outside our office. Bumper issue will be sorted soon.

Can you explain? The stock tyres were 165/80R13. XM1+ is not available in 175/80R13 but in 175/70R13. There is no loss of comfort, rather the comfort and ride have only improved.

What he means is that your tyre profile went down to 122 from 132 when you changed to 175/70R13. This means that on smaller tyres, the car's ground clearance will have come down, not to mention the speedo error and possibly lesser comfort due to the reduced tyre sidewall.

Thanks Colonel. I figured that out, but had no option. Actually Dad asked me to buy from a particular shop, hence, not much of a choice. I should have read the thread on Tyre Size before buying. But thankfully, there's no loss of ride quality and comfort. Will have to make do with the speedo error though. Thanks again, also sanjaymugur.
