@sathyaprakash - Dude I suggest not to go in for a make over from a Type X to a Type Y.

Think about it, the original was made best for what parts it holds, and then it might have complications later which definately will be UGLY.

Like the others suggested, enhance the look of the current car with a swank paint job and neat mods; get alloys like you said and make it stand out. It will make you feel better.

Biggest drawback in a conversion: If the mods are not done correctly and set right, your ride could land up in the Wierd and Wacky section! ;-)

Good decision IMO.

for 12 inch, you could do 155/65- 12, and for upsize 155/65- 13.
Tyres- Go for michelins if you want good ride quality.

Also, before doing anything to your M800. Please read this whole thread atleast once.
