Yep, i like what Tejas did with his Asta. 185 is what i have in mind.

With the tyres i was just thinking whether to go for a wheel with slightly lower offset compared to stock which is 34. How would be a 22 or 27 offset wheel with 185 section tyres? Handling gains by slightly increasing the track width is what i'm looking at. Neo Wheels have two 14" models in their catalogue with the above mentioned offset.

Right now it sounds acceptable man, and 2 pairs of better speakers, preferably components, would take care of my audiophilic needs!

The blue certainly looks nice, i must say.

Thanks Subodh. It's sedate.. no good for speeding! Atleast with the stock pencil thin tyres. I was testing acceleration and braking the other day, from 120 i braked and found the stock tyres inadequate, has a tendency to skid easy. Did that deliberately to find the high speed braking characteristics of the car. So decided am never gonna go above 100 before the tyres are replaced.

The tyre profiles are same as that of Santro, right? I never take my santro above 110Ks just because of this reason. Neverthless 80 - 100 cruising is superb with zero rattles.
From where are you going to get your new rubber? Please let me know coz my santro also is due for a rubber change.
Did you change your stock speakers?
