Sam, she looks lovely with the tints! The tyres also look great. You're right about the tread showing a bit on the sidewalls. It sure makes the tyres look more muscular.

Small suggestion: With these tints, maybe you can get the black masking tape/vinyl sticker done on the B Pillars. It would make the car look longer and lower when viewed from the side. I did this on my Palio (I got Llumar tints -- Platinum series, Neutral shade done 2 weeks back) and the results are real good.

Yep. Exactly. The car will look really different (better) from the sides with this.

Thank you Raajiv, if you read the thread through-you'll know why I didn't put alloy wheels. Cheers.

drsvijay do go thru the site Car Bibles : The Wheel and Tyre Bible. This site has very extensive info about tyres!. Also, there is tyre upgrade calculator on the same page.

Last Week I had bought Verna CRDI SX and had changed the tyres from MRF ZV2K 185/65-14 to Michelin Energy XM1 195/60-14. Got a query to anybody who had done a similar upgrade. What is your new tyre pressure. I tried company recommended 30 psi and found it to be slightly bouncier with respect to handling. Just wanted to check if anybody had optimum tyre pressure on the same upgrade.

Thanks!
