My Dazzle Blue 2016 Nano XTA with 19K on odometer, no issues at all, just the regular yearly service.

A small update on my 2015 GenX (Manual).

Odo is at 27,500km and I had to change the front tyres. The rear tyres look like they'll last around 10k more. As with my previous Nano, the front tyres wear much earlier than the rear but this time, it's been way better than my 2010 Nano in which the change happened at around 19k kms.

I could have driven it for few thousand kilometers more but I might have to drive this car to Chennai so I anyways wanted to change. Options were Apollo Amazer 3G (Rs. 1,950/- a piece) and MRF ZEC (Rs. 1,650/- a piece). I didn't hunt down for other options as these two showrooms are quite close to my home and I've had good experiences with them. I chose the MRF ones and they were readily available at Rohini Tyres, Panavila where the experience has always been very satisfactory.

Post alignment, the car was pulling slightly to the right so I took it back and got it rectified. They were quick and nice to deal with as well.

Other than that, the Nano is doing great. It's an absolute joy to ride in the city as the turning radius and quick steering makes my life a breeze in the many narrow Trivandrum roads. Once or twice, the car took a few seconds to crank and I'm sure it's not the battery as it was replaced not long ago. Then, there are a couple of rattles - the right door, around the cabin light area and somewhere from the dashboard as well. I don't think I can do much about it anyways. Also, a few weeks ago, during a very heavy downpour, when I started the car after parking it for a few hours, the Power Steering didn't work and it showed an error. But turning the car off and on after a pause solved the issue. I hope it doesn't come up again.

Cheers!!
The old Tyre.

Hi All,
Sharing an update that might help future tyre changes.
1. Nano Genx and Kwid have same PCD, one of my nano friend has swapped it. Faces no issues on bad roads/turns etc
2. All Genx Models of nano can easily accommodate 145/70R12 which is a bit better than the puny stock one given by Tata.
3. If you have no alignment issues, genx can also fit same size tyre on all 4 wheels.
4. The issues of weak brakes at high speeds remains even after tyre upgrade, but holds a straight line better and wheel lock happens later than on stock tyre.
5. Old Nano -Std, CX & LX have a brake hose retainer clamp that is welded to inner side of apron, that will rub the tyre side wall on tight turns, hence for older model Nano, stock is best.

This is my 3rd Nano and having tried all DIYs I can assure you that genx is way better and sorted than previous versions.

Attaching a pic of my friend Viprajeesh's Nano with Kwid rims with 155/65 R13 tyre. First person I know to have tried this upsize and works brilliantly.Tata Nano AMT (Automatic) : Official Review-img20200920wa0004.jpg
