I am not at all happy with the tires in my car.the skinny 145/80r12 help in improving the ride quality over the previous 13 inch tires,but at the expense of handling.
I am planning to go for a new set of tubeless tires with alloy rims.if I go for anything wider ,the tires could foul with the body and also the speedo reading would change.
So to keep the speedo reading unchanged,I plan to put 145/70r13 on the front ,and 155/65 r13 on the rear.both the tires have the same OD.
I know this would require me to keep two sets of spare tires,so I can keep the extra tire on the dicky door ,like in SUVís.
Will it affect the handling of the car.or will any suspension component get affected due to these changes.
I had written about this to ACI,OD a long time back.but did no get any reply.have written again.
Does anyone have any idea .

Hi. Had a 1967 Willys. Put in a 1800 cc Isuzu engine, ported and with a free flow. Installed a 4wd Trooper gearbox, got a 4.27 final drive. Got disc brakes in front, new body shell, tilt steering (Off a Tata Safari), suspended pedals, power steering, (Bolero) and a bikini top. Enjoyed myself getting it ready, didn't enjoy driving it cos it was too powerful for that 80" of wheel base. Sold it to me friend for 1/2 what I spent on it

Cool 1.3 Zen

Hi Santhosh,
You could use the new Esteems disc up front and the older esteems disc or the standard zen's disc at the rear.

Well. I am new to this, but am an avid auto bummer.

Had an 97 Zen with a 1.3 carb engine. The car would easily drag to 140 kmph. The speeds through the gears were - 1: 55, 2-95, 3-125, 4-150, 5 - 140.

I sold the car a couple of months back after putting the stock engine.

You are right the car does not stop in the intended track. I had 165/65 R13 Pirelli tubeless with Aura alloys, Headers et all.

So happy Zenning and happy braking.

Default Dream Project - What you want to do, but wont.....

Well, we all have some dream hidden away in some corner of our heart, which more often than not we are scared to sharing for fear of something or the other (viz. humiliation). Well, this is the place to share those thoughts, childhood dreams, call them what you want. Post specs and approx prices..dont care too much about logic..hah!

Well, for me, there are basically 2 things that i want to do in life, but i know that i will be able to do neither. In no particular order:

1. Own a contessa: I know contys have been discussed to death, but I feel that whatever discussion done about this classic car is less. It is my dream to have a conty and put in a 1.9 or 2L turbo'ed diesel engine...dreams i tell you. Black would be my colour.

2. Call my dreams a little cliched, i dont care, but the second thing i want to do in life is to own a mahindra jeep and of course, here comes again my diesel engine..3L should be sufficient..what say?

Btw, how much is a diesel engine for? Maybe i can start gathering money...

You guys have discussed almost everything with what you guys want to do to your cars.
As for me, as for our Fiesta, the following are the mods I have in mind if the budget allows.

Planning these after a year or two once i get proper driving experience -

Petes Box

Green/KnN Filter

As soon as possible.

Alloy wheels -
These are what I have in mind -
Alloy Wheels,Car Alloy Wheels,Automotive Wheels,Chrome Alloy Wheels India
Alloy Wheels,Car Alloy Wheels,Automotive Wheels,Chrome Alloy Wheels India
Alloy Wheels,Car Alloy Wheels,Automotive Wheels,Chrome Alloy Wheels India
Alloy Wheels,Car Alloy Wheels,Automotive Wheels,Chrome Alloy Wheels India
Maybe some other design if I find something interesting in the tyre shop.

Angel Headlamps - Are these available for the fiesta?


New number plates with a good sporty font

Maybe Neons under the car. This is just a thought.


Leather Seats - Either ART leather or proper perforated leather

Interior LED lighting. Was planning on Blue near the front footwell and below the rear seats and maybe the trunk as well.


PLanning on upgrading the ICE to a system with good, tight, clear chest thumping bass.
Co-ax - Compo set up
2 Channel Amp, maybe with a 4 channel for the speakers
12" Sub or Bass Tube with enclosure

As soon as possible

185/60R14 tyres - Michelin Energy XM1s or Yokohama S Drives. Should provide better grip while braking and handling.

Anything else I should consider for safety?

I am seriously considering doing this to the Fiesta but i am not so sure of the performance mods.
Here are pics of the stock car -
