This Red Zen has a Baleno Engine, and a turbo, it's owned by the younger brother of the previous owner of the White Turbo Supra in Bangalore. The car was done @ FRK. Had seen it couple of times while the turbo install was happening.

@mods: sorry if i have posted this elsewhere.
This Zen looks gorgeous. Could anyone guess the profile of the tyres? Would like to have them on my Zen. Thanks!

If I am not wrong the alloys are Lenso SHU series and they start with 15".

If you're going to add tyres like that to a stock Zen, be prepared to be overtaken by octagenarians on their morning walk

Yeah that B Zen is kinda crazy, it won some category in Speed run 2 years ago as far as I remember, I have seen this machine in action, most of the time on full blast u need a 3 lane open road for the first 3 gears as it might torque steer to any lane as it wishes.

Tyres are 195 45 R15 Fedral tyres, not so great tyres but no option in that category other than nankang.

I have 195 45 R14 hankooks on my zen and even that slows down a stock zen to quite some extent, 15" is just overkill on a stock Zen, but for this B zen even 15 is not enough grip, need some advan neovas for this one.

one more Q, is there any harm in raising the shocks by an inch or 2 as the GC in zen sucks...but at the same time i dont wanna spoil the low ride feature of it....can someone suggest how much raising is recommended without spoiling the ride quality

Hey, use spring bush for height your car will raise by 1.5 inches for both front and back, front you get metal ones and for back you get rubber bushes.

I had spacers in my zen (check my gallery for pics). The handling was very bad on both high and low speeds. I have removed it now and running on stiffened suspension with 175/60 R13 tyres. The car is very low now but still dont scrape the ground! Will post pics soon.
