Exactly, it's not recommended to upsize or downsize the diameter by over 3 %. I some where read it also leads to brakes fade.

Any thoughts.


The more powerful the car, the more one needs to stick to safety limits IMHO. My Swift has almost the same suspension, though my brakes are due for an upgrade, that does not qualify me to run ill-sized tyres

YES we should stick as close as possible to factory spec Overall diameter as possible, that is the right thing to do, whether it is 15" /16"/ 17" rims or whatever


Cheers

Thanks mate appreciate the answer. I was always curious what could be the upside to a tyre upgrade after an exotic suspension job.

I have yokohama advans on my vectra ..a nd honestly these are the worst tyres i have ever used ... braking is bad , handeling in wet is bad , handeling in dry is bad , rubber got hard within 6 months etc etc !!

To be honest Goodyear F1 ( my previous tyres ) performed much much better even with less width .

We wanted to go for Pilot perceda 2 for anmol's cedia but as i said there is no tyres avialable in market ( even in delhi ) .

BF goodrich was the second best option after PP2 so we went for that and friends are using these tyres on their cars and are extremely happy & as per telephonic discussion with anmol there is no wheel spin on his car , do i need to say anything else ??

Hello all. Anmol this side with apologies for not replying about the status of the car in time but to cut everything short, the BEAST has arrived!

The car got delivered on 26th May, evening at 5:00 pm. I had been waiting very very very anxiously since the morning. All i could do was smile when I saw the truck in which it was loaded.

There was no ramp to unload the car hence a desi "jugaad" was used. It took me a hell lot of time to get used to the clutch (the car stopped 5 times when I reversed it from the truck) of the car because this racing clutch is very different from the conventional clutches we get in normal cars.

The drive so far has been just awesome. I have faced a few issues which I will talk about later in this post. It is more like a daily drive car. Totally stock from outside and quite stock from the inside. People dont come to know that anything has been done till they dont feel the power of the car. It drives really really smooth. The exhaust is perfect for my taste, not too loud to attract attention and neither too soft.

On normal driving, one doesn't feel that there has been any modification at all. It sounds normal, turns normal, drives normal.

There has been some minor rattling inside the car. I still have to figure what is it.
Some minor parts were left unbolted in the car. Like the cloth that covers the boot from the inside was not locked and a small cover under the bumper. The gear shift is a little problematic and at times gets stuck while shifting from 2nd to 3rd.

It is an amazing build to say the least. Handles really well. The hardest i cornered was a roundabout at 110 km/h... twice, which is quite impressive. Im running on full hard suspension right now.

About the tyres part, I am satisfied with them. The reason I went in for these was because there were no ADVAN NEOVA'S, NO PP2'S, NO ADVAN SPORTS. Nothing was available in Chandigarh and trust me I looked through out the city.

The car gave me an average of 4 in the last refill. And i can't comment if its bad or not.

Overall, all i can say is that i am in love with it. Nothing better could have happened.

Such a clean and neat engine bay. Looks like a factory fitted turbo. Red rooster rules when it comes to professionalism . Congratulations Anmol.

Hi Anmol

Such a long driveway ? which sector do you live man ..

Can you Tag your Pictures - for guys like me who have little knowledge about these things & if possible the breakup of your costs for all these parts with functionality & maybe later on your comments on performance of individual parts & suggestion for rest of dreamers...

Congrats for the car Anmol. Thanks for the snaps and reviews. This is precision stuff.

I think you could have done a bit more with the tyres, dont know 205/50 R15 will be sufficient for this beast or not. Do update on this after you clock some good kms. The engine bay looks very neat and clean as it should be and it speaks for the professionalism from RRP. The defi gauges though expensive, changes the complete theme .

In between, the car begs for smoked head lamps and touch screen double din.

I am bit surprised, knowing chandigarh and people there, it is a main market for such tyres. I mean where in India do you see atleast 6-7 out of 10 cars to have alloys/most upsized and bigger tyres.

4 must have been FUN, I sometimes get 6 from stock car on S-Sport mode...lolzzz

Lastly, i personally dont like stickers on a car but the RRP one looks surprisingly good.

EDIT: do you have that black support on which the licence plate is fixed on stock car. It can installed on the left in an EVO similar manner.

What a Beast it truely would be to drive can imagine the smile on Anmols face simply awsome.

+1 to gavravs say
your begs for smoked out headlight from previous gen cedia and also a nice Touchscreen interface HU and also i might add Some tints.

One advice
install a wire mesh protection in the lower slats of the bumper beside the foglight spacing just to ensure protection from small stones and muck from the road on the intercooler.
Oh and that Garrett Intercooler looks yumm

One question
Was there any specific reason you opted for defi tacho gauge stock gauge was not good?
And any specific reason to go for the rally style hood locking clips ? what the fibre glass type of material seen on the radiator upper hose ?

I saw the autometer gauges, only mechanical were available and trust me they were soo small I didnt like them. And once you look at Defi's you really cant go in for anything else..

And yes Akshay, it is a rally prepp gypsy.

Ill upload all the videos that you can imagine tomorrow. Car at idle, 0-100, 1/4th mile. How it sounds, the blowoff valve. It will all be there

Prashanth in our last conversation told me that there wont be any average drop what so ever infact there was an increase by 1 in his swift. but then again hes running stock internals with no headwork.
