Hey Viv,

Cant say about improved braking feel, cos I didnt drive much on the stock tyres.

however overall feel is a lot more confidence inspiring on the wider rubber.

Give me a call on 98451 50792 if you want to check out the braking on my car. we could meet up sometime somewhere...

VIV, the braking feel does not improve with wider rubbers. The braking as such is very good with no lock ups but the feel is still the same. the pedal is still mushy.

Rahul, what about steering effort with 195 tyres?

I am feeling an appreciable increase in steering effort even with a small increase from 175 to 185 on my Siena..

What about FE? does it go down with wider tyres? Have not measured mine after the tyre change..

I think Bosch does put up ABS systems. It came in autocar that ABS, EBD and TCS have not become a aftermarket equipment. So if you want ABS you can get it from Bosch. Any way that i can contact them. Their site is realy confusing.

even I was thinking that the fiat guys should be able to help out.. i have had lots of close calls in my palio 1.2 due to lack of abs.

does any one out there know who in India ( mostly Mumbai) can help? it would help improve road safty to some extent.
