Some steel pedals have rubbers on it.

@ invincible7,

Get some Type R around 500-1000 Rs, and do not go for broader ones because maybe sometime you will press accelarator instead of brake.

I had Streetglow's Neon pedals in my OHC, if you want to go for streetglow let me know i can find and post picture of it.

Rev, the rubber wears off fast. You won't believe that my throttle pedal which is full medal has worn out and my shoes slips off from it. Thats when I decided to buy these pedals.

Its from the same guy who makes the K&N look and workalike filters.

@ invincible7 - Do try out the pedals for comfort before you get them fitted. As Mugen said, they often foul up the whole thing. Also, get some anti-skid type if available. I nearly had a crash when my foot slipped on the metal surface on a rainy day.
@ Mugen - Could you post the pics please? And the price you got those for.
Thanks

Will do tomorrow Mugen. I haven't fixed them yet. We need to drill the existing pedals to fix, right?

I think there should be screws which will go behind the original pedal and than tight it from front side.

It is DIY thing.

Please try and source original Maruti Suzuki sports pedals. Cost Rs. 350/- for a set and work well. You will have to drill the existing metal pedals for them to fit. I had a set on my zen and I bought them after consulting Speedsatya on the forum. I had bought one of the last ones which Sai service had in stock and they said they weren't manufacturing these anymore. They come in genuine MGP packing.

If there is any Lancer Ones available or Palio ones both ways OEM's , from Accident cars let me know.
Type R and the Chinese ones are around 250 Onwards, Made out of Cheap Die Cast Iron, Something which Cheap Toy cars are made of, These would crack in no time.
I found Ones with LED Glow lights on for around 900 but Chose not to get them since It will involve cutting into the Electrical Harness, which in turn will void the warranty.

Let me know if you get some Simple Ones like the ones in the Sports Lancer...!
