Too early to comment . Though, I must admit that the ride quality is a bit harsh that the stock 13 ers, as expected, because of the low profile.

The tyre noise is significantly lower than the Bridgestones I had earlier. Handling has improved immensely on the e-way. Tried a few tight corners and was happy that I could do it with more confidence than earlier.

Apollo makes some nice rims. Was on my list for a while, but was replaced eventually by Plati. Also wasn't getting the design of my choice in 15".
This car's a great handler. With your upgraded rubber you can have some fun But please do be nice to the tyres (initially at least)... run them in for a bit and get to know their limits before taking too many high speed corners!
Looking forward to the pics!

I agree with you razor. I am running it in right now. I did not hit beyond 110 kph the other day on the e-way. will take it easy

Thanks Khanak and BUSA. Well, after this is the plan to go for a FFE and a CAI filter. The body-kit follows later.

Nice tyres. Everyone here raves about Yokos; I'm sure you're gonna be one of them soon. Do check out an Automech exhaust before fitting one in. See if you like the sound, because I doubt they'll customize one to suit your specific taste.
First time I heard about these alloys!
Will have to check out your ride in the flesh now; be there at the next meet

Thanks Vikram. I am yet to decide if it would be Automech or Viper or some other guy. I hear, Vipers are the best for customized exhausts. But anyways, thats not going to happen in a hurry. I might be out of the country the whole of February. The FFE will happen only in March then.

Sure, you may check the wheels for yourself. Like I mentioned in an earlier post, the ride quality is a bit harsh than before. This set does not like the undulations on the road

Let me take you for a spin on my 225/45/17, your ride will seem cushioned after that . Actually, you really get used to it in a while; I did.
