      so dude with the potenza G3 is it safe to do 200+kmph
      as the tyres were new i did some high speed stunts n later ripper advised me to take it easy as new tyres needed somekms to get rid of a fresh coat or something?? now i need to know if its safe fr me to blast once i go to cochin. the tyres wud have done 3-4 k kms now

      yes potenza G3 does make a difference.I have put in 205/50/r15.The vehicle is much more stable and planted than the stock ones.Doing humbs at higspeed was never giving me a good feeling but now things are better.Braking has also improved a lot.

      Re: All GHs flying in Verna

      205/50/r15... will that fit to the stock alloy?
      I am running 185/65/r14 now.. planning to upgrade to 195/65/r14. Potenza G3 of course.
      Will that help stability without causing any noticable change in FE figures? (i'm getting it 23kmpl )

      @silver rocket- did you check if the 195 upsize you mentioned has the correct overall diameter. The profile, methinks should be less than 65. Use the tire size calculator available online on various websites to confirm before purchasing

      196/65/r14 should be fine for the verna. Though not available in all tire brands. 195/60 is the correct upsize.
