Default Indica - Broad tyres

Hi guyz.. This is my first post here at Team Bhp,
Firstly let me appreciate the knowledge and your interests in the machines.. Kudos to all of

you here..
Well I really like modifying my car, but i lack a little knowledge on the technical side..
I had a Fiat which was down for 4 years.. haha.. All the tyres were growing roots..
But i somehow managed to get the vehicle back to normal.. Though it dint take a lot of

trouble.. Except for all the rubber parts !!
Got it completely modified .. Removed the top.. Fixed up a hood. Fixed up a big time music

system.. Will post some pictures later
Can u beat that.. the deck was costlier than the car )
Now i'm kinda tired with it..
A year back i bought a Indicab V2 jus to fix it up to call centers..
Thought of getting some income outta it but the drivers have completely screwed up the car..
Not too late yet so i decided to use it for myself..
I shifted the system from the Fiat to the indica..

Wat i really want to do is
I had seen this zen in b'bay where he had fixed up real broad tyres.. Broad in the sense if

you see the car from a front view you could see half of the tyre protruding out..
I really want to get that done for my Indica..
Could anyone help me with this..

Also i needed help to change the registration from commercial to normal..
I got in touch with an agent he said i cannot do that until 3 years
Dunno why.. had jus casually asked him..

Firstly welcome to teambhp.

For the kind of look you are going for...you will need to fit spacers to get those tyres protruding out of the body...

Not reccomended as it will put a lot of strain on the suspension which will lead to premature failure. And plus its illegal to have such tyres on the car.

Instead just go for an upsize put on 14' alloys and tyres...they will look great.

Put the v2 petrol spoiler, get the clear lens indicators and headlamps+tail lights... and skirts of the new indica...check whether the new tail lamps will fit without any modification.
Should make it a looker.

And if they do, make sure you fit the 2nd reverse lamp bulb!

The "Refreshingly New" Indica V2 models come with only 1 reverse lamp bulb (on the left side). Make sure you fit the reverse bulb on the right side.
