my dad knows about the custom expansion chamber (changed twice in one year) but gets really mad when my car shouts out but he appreciated when i switched to new tyres, suspension and brakes. i love my car very much. i guess its the same with everyone here in team BHP.

Very nice Rahul, welcome to the club. I cant promise a very comfortable stay (you already must know by now), but can guarantee brilliant results especially since you have people like Keshav, Akshay and memo guiding you.

All the best and NEVER GIVE IN.

Its nice to see so much energy and enthusisam for modding, but it seems odd that you have go thru so many tire combos to arrive at the right solution. Theres plenty of knowledge base on what tires work for Balenos.

Agreed but not with the mods he is running and the future mods that are in the pipeline.. Its good that he has spent that insane amount on Tires alone.. Now he knows what tire will suit best for what mods.

Its all a process of understanding the handling of your car .. That said almost all sets are in good shape its just that we were experimenting with the sizes .. The 13's can be used for daily drive , so can the 14's .. The only set we have completely destroyed is a set of used F1's .. Besides these tyres come in really handy at track days ..

Desert Fox , a special thanks to you for you know what ..

Guys , thanks a ton for all the good wishes and the reviews and to all those PM's that I have been getting about this thread .. Will try and not let you guys down ..

Rahul,

Its very nice to know when someone finds their niche. And you've obviously found yours. Ensure nothing else takes precedence - like girlfriend, not having petrol , bird droppings, complete abstinence etc.
