Default correct tyre upsize for zen

rightly modified I say - I liked the Alloys - Plati 6 - correctly chosen - suits well - looks stunning I say -

me plans to get new rubber and alloys for my white zen - almost the same - with black vinyl on A - Pillar -

would need some help to solve my queries :

1. I am Not sure of correct tyre upsize :

165/60R/13 or 155/65R/13 - I would not mind if tyre pops out a little and more space in the wheel wells.

And Michelin or Bridgestone Potenza G3 - which one is best and sensible for long run -

2. So what should be the appropriate alloy rim size, if I finalise on any one of them -

3. Would this upsizing and alloy cause any reduction in mileage or perfomance. Or does it enhance handling of vehicle better.

4. Should I add spacer - to get more space in the wheel wells. Does it makes handling bad or suspension hard.

5. Where on earth will I get mesh headrest for front seat - I mean black grill type

appreciate your reply at the earliest

thanks

Congratulations Amit. So, finally your beauty gets the clear lens that must be on your mind from a long time. It really has changed the looks of the car, amazing stuff.

I see some woofer and rear coaxial picture, is that also changed? If yes, what equipment is used, how much it costed and who fixed it up for you?

Finally, in the war against cosmetic and performance, cosmetic won..huh? I was damn sure when i saw your pm that you got the FFE done....So uski kab hai bari?

Hey Amit, your car is really turning out to be a looker. Nice tasteful mods which don't make it over the top and are functional too.

Enjoy the Zen.

Thanks Mobike. I was lucky to get these in Hyderabad itself (Siddiamber Market near Afzalgunj Masjid). Apparently these are pretty much the last of the stock.

ICE is basically a 12' Pioneer Sub coupled with a 4 Channel Sound Barrier Amplifier (Bridged 2 of the channels for the Sub). Pioneer 6'X9' Rear Speakers and Blaupunkt 6' Front Speakers. No changes in ICE for quite some time now. Though i need an upgrade to my music system. Got all the ICE done @ Gurgaon itself when i was there. Spent > 20K overall on the ICE.

Regarding Cosmetic Vs Performance, i had already put a K&N Stock Replacement Filter the last time and the next upcoming upgrade was a cosmetic one . FFE is still on my target but only after a few months (Bonus Payout etc). Dont worry you will get a PM on that when i get it done!

Thanks Getsurya. You can have a closeup view on the next meet or alternatively if you happen to come to MS today, its parked @ WFIS parking! (Your company, My company, its the same thing.)

Thanks Suren. Awaiting a performance upgrade now (Awaiting Financially). I think the most functional modifications on my ride are my oversized tyres. They really keep the bikers away from the car body!

Amit, the clear lense treatment to your car is looking very good.

Zen is a great car to modify and I suggest that you take up the performance mods also.
