14 inch tubeless tyres with alloys will definitely improve the handling of the car and FE will remain the same. the pros and cons of tubeless tyres has been discussed on this forum , someone please help out with the link.

Warranty ? talk to the dealer , i think if u change it at the dealers end it shouldnt affect the warranty , still ask to be sure.


ps- go for the 14 inchers tubeless with alloys. i have an ikon with the same tyre & alloy combo, no probs dude

I asked the dealer the same thing . they didnt seem too happy with the idea of going for the 14" on a flair. In any case, I'm fairly happy with the 13" for the time being. Incidentally, Ford has announced the 'anniversary edition' flair, which is essentially the finesse with a couple of goodies like fog lamps and tape player and a keyless entry alarm system. so here's what i did, exchanged the tape player for the smaller zxi steering wheel +tubeless tyres. exchanged the fog lamps for silver finish interior panels + sunfilm + a couple of other small things!!

and of course ... its gonna be panther black !!
