In the Beat's e-broucher specifications, 155/70 R14 Tubeless tyres is mentioned. The broucher is very nicely designed and worth viewing. It is just a 5 MB file. You can download it from their website.

Thanks a lot guys. I had checked on carwale and they were not mentioning about the tubeless option on this car. I was wondering if thats where they have done cos cutting. I am wondering how they can give all these features at this price. Where has the cost cutting been done. The Rear bumper looks as flimsy as a cardboard paper!!!! Is that one place of cutting cost.

I saw a red Chevy beat today and sure was an eye catcher. This one's a design that catches every eye in every color. Looks amazing. My wife wants a chevy spark, wait till she sees this on the road.

The car is idling too low for my liking which in turn is causing me to stall every time I reverse up a hill. Is there anyway I can increase the rpm from 600 to 800 or 1000?

you can increase the idiling but dont do that. instead get used to it. it has been set at that level for a reason.

To Chevrolet Beat proud owners/evaluators - In the India version of Beat, on the dashboard is it a dummy sensor or does it actually works, if yes, then what and how exactly....does it require any accessory to be installed? Thanks...

Finally got my Black LS yesterday. Its just so beautiful!! I took it to college today and it really does make heads turn! I've already done 100kms. The drive is so smooth. Noise insulation is really good in the car. Going to go for a tyre upgrade today!

GTO mentioned in the review about - Chevrolet 3 year service guarantees, but just to clarify, its PAID, not free, my dealer is charging 13k for it. I guess it would be across all locations...

Congrats azharace!
Post more details on your driving experience with photos.
Please give updates on your tyre upgrade.
Are you going for alloy wheels?
