Hi Tsk,

On the subject of the India, am planning on adding on a performance filter - ideally K&N or Pipercross.

Have not heard much abt them being used for Indicas here on the threads....is this my mis-conception or can i add performance to the already turbo-charged indica.

Pls assist.

Regards,

What's the wheel specification of both the models?
Isn't the DLX having 13" wheels and the DLG having 14"...I'm not sure

Hi KP,

The DLX runs on 13' and 175/60's

The DLG runs on 14' and 185/65's.

Would you reckon the rpm difference is caused due to this size variation.?

Would be happy to learn.

Cheers

Umm, the apollo acceleres cost us 2400 apiece near LSR (Delhi). In karol bagh, same 165/65 were for 1900 apiece! (corner shop on ajmal khan road, next to master tyres)

I'm not sure if there is any change in speedo calibration of DLX model and the latest Turbo model of Indica..tsk can u please clarify?

If i assume that there is no change in speedo calibration.Taking stock tyres as 165/65-13 and upsizing to 185/65-14 will cause speedo error and the speedo will under read which means if u are doing 100kmph the speedo will show less 100kmph..

Of course when you change wheel rim size speedo calibration would also change. Tata indigo had the 14" wheels for the first time, and speedo was fine. I suspect a faulty speedo in old car or faulty tacho.
Its giving 2K rpm for 100kmph. This would happen only if the actual speed is around 80kmph, a 20% error.

If im not mistaken, the gear ratios are also different for the turbo Indica.

kpzen, you are right, 175/60 is available
For what other reason do you think kevin prasad zenwallah is called the unofficial tyre wallah in Team-BHP ?

Yess, Your right.

Currently all models of Turbo come in 14'.

The DLX am referring to is a '99 model and the DLG is '07 model with tyre upsizes in both cases.

Hence my initial query on inconsistent rpms under similar driving conditions for same speedo readings.

Trust that clarifies the case.

Cheers

I 've been hearing lots of good reviews for apollo accelere espically from the tyre dealers . I spoke to two different dealers and told them that i am very dissatisfied with my Michelin MXV8s, told them my priorities and asked them to recommend me a tyre and the answer was apollo accelere ... . I mean i coudnt believe what i heard and the funny thing was they both were so confident that they offered me to drive the Laura on acceleres for 4-5 kms and buy only if i feel satisfied ... the confidence they had on accelere was amazing cos tyre dealers generally dont allow test drives on new tyres OR maybe theres some scheme going on from apollo .But after reading this thread i 'll definatly check out the acceleres...
