Hey guna, the car sure looks a stunner. Add a pair a high security number plates to improve the looks further on.

Yes it is Goodyear GT3 195/60 R15. Not sure why it is not reflected in the website.

I am posting some interior pics along with the front of the car
Sorry, If i am sounding like a moron. So, you got Rs. 7500 for your stock wheels+rims. (good deal, i must say).
Is Rs. 3400 for new GT3 for 195/60 R15? Sorry, But i havent gone into market checking for new wheels. Did you consider Michelin Energy XM1+ also?
If Rs. 3400 is cost per tyre, this means you had to spend (Rs. 17,000-for new tyres+Rs. 23,000 for new alloys - Rs. 7500 for old tyres+rims = Rs. 32,500)..wow..big money..
Any suggestions, if i continue with my stock tyres and only get alloys. I am sorry but i am a newbie so you can forgive me for silly questions.

Thanks for these details, at least now i know what is least to expect for my stock wheels+rims.

I completely agree. I have never seen such beatiful pics especially the ones in the woods. I hope its not a photoshop effect .

I desperately feel like getting alloys, new tyres, seat covers and fog lamps for my ANHC. But, will wait for my this years salary appraisal (if any )

Yes, additon of 34k! Even I thoght of only going for alloys. Going for a wider tyres will improve the grips and handling but impacts FE, road noise negatively.

I did consider Bridgestone Turanza and BF goodrich but finally decided to go with GT3 itself even when I knew they are not the best. I did not want something which is too soft, so ruled out Michlins (as per the advise from the tyre guy)

Brilliant job on the grill there. Although, I don't think it will work with all the paint shades - hard to imagine how it will look in the Habanero Red paint scheme.

Very true. On Red it might just turn out to be good

Belated Congrats !!!
I have not seen a complete ANHC like yours till today ! No exaggerations. So, alloys, tires, fogs, seat cover etc. are part of additionally paid accessories right ? Alloys design is too good and matches very well with the overall design.

OT: Your soceity compound looks very well maintained. Where is this ?(if you dont mind!). We are thinking of renovating our compound, including a more attractive uniform to the security (7 at duty onetime). Also please mention the 'forest' like area in the pictures. It is an awesome place for a photoshoot ! Thanks.

Yes they are part of additonally paid accessories. The forest like area is actually the surrounding forest around my native place in North Canara district.

Complete. Looks a stunner. Painting the grill to body color is a nice touch. Fogs look great, all doubts regarding that have rested. The 15" 195/60 GT3 is probably better for the power of the car, it would however make it noisy, and a little harsh (AKA Fusion). Yokohama would have retained the noise levels, but not as effective on dirt.

Forwarding this thread to two of my friends who just got the same ANHC delivered this week.
