After I changed tyres in my Auto (Alto) to Michelins it rides like my Innova (already sold) with goodyear tyre, I am thinking how smooth Innova will be If we put Michellins. They are best tyres I have ever seen.

Regards,

Ravi.
Thanks Ravi, i have not yet decided to change my tyres. If yes, then will surely get the michelins

Congratulations on the new car. Will follow this thread regularly for updates.
This problem is resolved, i have learnt now how to park it in our tight spot and there is no problem as of now getting out of the driver side door. So it was just a simple amendment to style of parkingcheers:

Do you think our i10s need better footwear? I dont think so, but generally most of the reviews are stating that the i10 is having the low profile tires.

As your aware, i dont use the i10 regularly and it is purely for wifey and she is a new learner so even i am not keen to change the tyres which i feel are very good for regular city driving and i am sure it is also adequate for some spirited driving on highways.

Btw, i am running on Bridgestones? Do you have the same?

I am running on MRF. Even during my drive on highways, I never felt the need for the high profile tires. However most of the reviews I read were suggesting a upgrade. Hence I am in double minds. My experience with the current set of tires is beautiful and never felt like less grip or some thing like that.

Thanks Surya and Rajesh.

Rajesh Bhai, main hi mila aap ko subah subah chane ke jaad chadane

Though i agree if i lose a few kilos ( or is it more like a couple of dozen ), i dont look that bad...you see modesty is my middle name...heheheh

Yeah, you told me about that shoe shop in Nacharam, didnt know about that. Will check it out! Btw, your going overboard with the number of smiley's, beware !!!!!!!!

@Ashish, i am not into the 0-100 game. Having said that, it does not mean i dont enjoy the power and several times i did breathe down the necks of much much powerful cars and is good enough for me

I prefer calling my pete'd viva a "Red Beast" and here is a picture of the red beast vying with white angel

Well, white angel does not stand a chance in front of the red beast, don't you think?

They look absolutely wonderful on a white. I am going to search for a similar pattern out here. Quick couple of q's. Are they stock tyres? Any idea which brand of alloys they are?

Again, thanks a bunch !
Stock tyres

Why not paint the B pillar black

Actually, my wife wants to paint/sticker the car in black stripes starting from the front number plate in the middle and running through the entire roof and ending at the rear number plate at the middle. Don't ask me why

I prefer the car as much stock as possible and a little averse to stickering but if stickering is done with some sense, it turns out really good. Black color on C pillar is a good idea, seen it on many white Swifts.

Will request one of our resident hyderabad photoshop expert to do some gimmicks and based on results will decide

I forgot to mention, last sunday, we were out shopping for a couple of watches to carry along with my mom for my sister and BIL who live in US.

And, while selecting their watches, i liked a watch and i was murmuring to my wifey and mom that it looked nice but said i already have many watches dont really need one.

And, this discussion lasted for 5 minutes and 5 secs, and my wifey told the salesman to pack the watch, it was a gift from her to me in lieu of the car that i bought for her.

And, instead of spending 6-7K for my sister and BIL's gifts we ended up spending 13K. Here is the picture of my new watch, posting it here because i got it free for buying an i10 :-
