For my experience, my previous Toyota Vios 2nd gen installed the following items:

UR Front Strut Bar
UR Rear Anti Roll Bar

APM Sport Suspension for front and rear

Continenal UC6 Tyre x 4

The driving experience and handling is awesome, high speed cornering is never a worry.
Rainy or sunny day, i drove with same speed, thanks for good tyre by Continenal.

Yet, the car got a bit bumpier compared to original Toyota parts.

Mostly almost the same metal material, only different design but still the same purpose.
You may go and try if the cost is cheap and feedback to us after few months, as UR is a bit overrated nowadays.

The thickness all the same?

Does UR still provide buy back policy? Last time I tried a front strut bar and it was ok, made huge difference on the small car. Only willing to try it as they got buy back policy

You need to understand what are all the bars meant for and you may need to readjust your driving habits for the bars to work better

Rear anti roll to reduce body roll

Front strut to increase front stability when corner?

Even you buy those 2nd hand strut bar from half-cut shop also can make a difference. The concept is just make your car chassis more rigid and less flex.
Thickness for me is a louzy comparison as if you want so thick, why not just weld a full solid metal bar over like those track car? tongue.gif Most Japanese tuners only use Aluminium bar which is more lighter for street cars and if the bar is too stiff it will impact your overall ride comfort also.

It provides better handling by reducing the flexing. Correct me if I’m wrong.

TBH, a new set of better wheels and tyres will give you better handling than the UR stage 1. If you want to go for aftermarket absorbers, give kyb a try. They’re pretty underrated imo and won’t really break the bank.

lol what.

not sure if you're making your statement right. Except you're changing a super lightweight and super wide tyres (they don't make sense in daily commute car), perhaps having some strut bars might not work as well as a set of upgraded wheels.

And yeah, KYB is good enough for common cars like Vios, City and Myvi.

Which is why I’ve mentioned better wheels and tires. What’s the point of changing to cheapo replicas? I would rather spend more on brands like konig and Advanti racing, affordable yet great quality and a set of good tires.

Sometimes it’s worth the investment. Konig and Advanti 16” are available at ard rm1.6k compare to few hundred bucks for the cheapo replicas which area prone to dent and crack. Most importantly one’s life would be at stake.

If you use stock size tires, no point to upgrade.

S1 is all I’ll use. Already gotten 3 sets in total. I hate the fender scrap thingy and I’m not willing to roll my fender hence I’m sticking to 15”
