Not the stock Apollos, they are stock size 235/70 R16 Michelin LTXs. Looking wider because of the wider rim, 7 instead of the stock 6.5.

After seeing your Grande, it is the first time that I felt like checking it out on Tata's website.

Looks really nice, thanks for sharing.

Really Looks Awesome ashutoshb. Especially in those clean snaps that you have uploaded on this page. Black sure is still THE BEST.

It's also because of the rims' negative offset.

Really really great choice of alloys! They suit the car perfectly! Congrats Supriyo.

With these new tyres and wheels, any difference you notice in ride, handling and braking?

Thanks .
About the ZLO , after changing from JK i find these tyre really good.
The ride quality is infact better than the stock JK even after upsizing to 15'' .

The roof is not painted but vinyled

Thanks Karthik.
Oh the handling and braking is simply superb now.
About riding quality, i have covered around 1 k kms till now in these new alloys and tyre and i find them to be really good. May be because i have changed from JK's .
Infact wifey also said the same.


But i need one help guys .
Regarding the speedo error, im seeing the speedo error it too much after changing to these new tyre.
If the speedometer show 100 , gps shows around 93, not sure why its is showing so much of difference.
Any idea how to get it fixed or at least get it minimized as much as possible ,please advise.

Cheers
