Now this is something very surprising, thank you for sharing. Sorry for being pretty naive, but by instrument cluster do you mean the player or the odometer console. Just want to get my facts clear. If possible, can you share an image please.

Guys one quick advise please.
My 2017 Kwid has approximately 36000 on the odometer. I have read past reviews and its suggested that one should have the tires replaced around 50000/5Y (whichever is earlier)
Since I completed a few marathon roadtrips, is it advisable to change the tires? I can share image of all the wheels but that might take some time.
Can anyone please suggest in the meantime?

Hello Majumdarda. I think you should change your tires before the 5 year/50000km mark ONLY if your tires show any cracks, bulges, have uneven wear on them, have deteriorated in any way or if the tread wire indicator is indicating a tire change.

To understand how to check tread wear indicator, please follow PatchyBoy's post below, from this thread (Coin Test for Tyre Wear checking):

For the most part, motoring law in most countries determines that your tires need a minimum tread depth to be legal. This varies from country to country but is normally around 1.6mm. To assist you in figuring out when you're getting close to that value, most tires have tread wear indicators built into them. If you look around the tread carefully, at some point you'll see a bar of rubber which goes across the tread and isn't part of the regular pattern (see the picture here for an example). This is the wear indicator. It's really basic, but it's also pretty foolproof. The tread wear indicator is moulded into the rubber at a depth of about 2mm normally. As the rubber in your tires wears away due to everyday use, the tread wears down. At some point, the tire tread will become flush with the wear indicator (which is normally recessed into the tread). At this point you have about 2mm of tread left - in other words it is time to change tires.

boniver.

Thank you very much boniver. This seems pretty simple. I will quickly have a look at the tire and try to judge the thread depth.

Anyone replaced the stock IRVM with an anti-glare (manual dimming knob) IRVM? If yes, where do I find one? I tried to search online, but no luck yet.

Hi, presume this mirror is common with the one applicable on Dusters? Boodmo is probably where you are more likely to get it. Fitment is a breeze as it is only a snap on the mirror button on the windshield.
