Never thought that the Wagon R could look so good. Thank you for taking the pains to write, certainly enjoyed the write up and pics.

Two questions -
1. Is there any impact on fuel efficiency?
2. Does your car have power steering ?

Yes, the car has PS. And I think there will be a loss on FE of around 1-2 kmpl. I haven't kept a check on the actual FE after the upgrade. And to be honest, the car is not driven much. I drive it only on the weekends. And the main reason for the tyre upgrade was for the macho looks, I was not too concerned about FE and handling.

If you are planning to upgrade, and the car is driven daily for commuting, I would suggest the best upgrade size would be 155/65 for both ride comfort and handling plus best FE.

Cool pics man. These pics made me feel nostalgic about a trip that I had to Manali & Dalhousie a few years back.

The black WagonR looks quite appetising
