Yes the inner would touch when you hit a bump or when the car bottoms out...

you just need to raise the suspension a bit its easy and cheaper.

I agree by raising the suspension you can use 13" inchers ...but the flip side is the handling of the car gets affected a bit..it bounces...u can fit 13" inchers just as stock ...u may face some rubbing when you go over bumps ...but you can live with it...

Default What tyres best for M800

Thanx Mridul,

I dont want to go for 13 inchers now, when I enquired for good tyres in 12 inchers I saw Michelin,145/80 R12 and Bridgestone GIII 165/60 R12, which will be better and does not much affect mileage and handling.

Hm personally i feel the new models rear lights aren't anything that great, with that big main circle being the reverse light and stuff...
but yeah the headlights I could consider.

Man could somebdy please provide me some input on how much this mod is gonna burn a hole in my pockets.

large sticker removed and smaller sticker added.
note:the lettering of the small sticker is sourced from a team-bhp logo that one of our bhpians created long ago.

Is it necessary that you need to raise the the front and rear suspensions on a M800 if you are planning to add 13" alloys with 165/65/13 profile tyres. Please advice
