of late serious accidents are happening too often in hyderabad. On this tuesday a new honda civic fell into a deep ditch dug for the construction of a flyover, close to the hyderabad central mall. The same night an accent turned turtle late at night after crossing the hi-tech circle signal. It was completely crashed. Today morning I saw a Tata Indigo that had crashed into the 5 feet high mobile concrete walls that are kept as divider, just before the hi-tech city signal. It was completely smashed from the front with axle broken and the front wheels twisted!

Either we are seeing a surfeit of reckless drivers here or else its sheer misfortune and bad happenstance!

Sad.... that army retard should be hanged, but all that will happen is a case of rash and negligent driving and he will bail out but the family is ruined.

The tires seem reasonably wide and big, can you guys clarify why they are being called cycle tires ? P235/70R16 is a wide and big tire right (Ref indiacar.com)?

For verna VGT. Reference indiacar.com. Even otherwise the tires look wide and big in the pix. If you guys are referring to weak braking may be true.

235/70-16 on Verna

.Pls post the indiacar link...Thats a SUV tyre size which comes in Safari , Scorpio etc....

Verna comes with 175 section tyres which are way too skinny to control 24kgm torque the VGT engine produces....
