    Yes, that is why I mentioned just Palio. The GTX got the alloys I am referring to from factory. :)

    15 inch wheels on a Palio make a serious improvement in handling. The main reason why I don't want to go back to the stock 14inch alloys although the telephone alloys look yum :D
  3. I heard ZLO's stopped production for some time and have come with some changes now. I saw this news in what's app group.

    Yes it is true. They were not available for quite some time and MRF has come out with what I may say as the next version of ZLO. I was talking to MRF T&S and got the update. The new sizes are:


    • 205/55 R15
    • 205/65 R15
    • 215/55 R16
    • 225/55 R16
    • 245/45 R19
    • 275/45 R19

    This is available along with the old sizes as well:


    • 185/70 R14
    • 195/60 R14
    • 195/60 R15
    • 255/55 R18

    What I heard from T&S is that they are yet to be officially launched - only the announcement has been made. I am looking out for 205/55 R15 specification for my Linea.

    Yes I have the newer revision ZLOs. They were out of production for the last 6-7 months while MRF was supposedly making improvements.

    As promised here is the tyre pic of my MA-Z1:

    sunnyboi, were youa victim of tire noise as well.
    also where all did you drive? 22k looks too less for that kind of an impact.
    Mine has done a shade over 20k and if i wash the tires it looks brand new

    Re: What tyres to buy??

    I'm not too kind towards tyres. I have done a bit of offroading on these types as well, rubber peeing off the tyre happened during a recent track outing.

    Noise is not really an issue for me, I never drive with windows down and my car is heavily damped.
