Anyway, no plans to change the alloys since they are not giving an option to have only steel rims in Emotion pack.

Civic has 195/65R15 and the profile does not look too fat. Both 195/60 and 205/65 would need 5.5 to 7 inch width rim. And my guess is that it will fit well in Linea's wheel well.

Pitch Circle Diameter. You can google for "wheel PCD". First link I got is WHEELS. PCD, offset, and centre spigot diameter

PCD stands for Pitch circle diameter. Please correct me if I am wrong.

It has something to do with the bolts that fit the alloys or the wheels. It is the diameter of the circle that would connect the circle if the bolts were in the circumference of the same circle. I think it is measured in mm and so 100 mm means 10 cms dia which most of the alloys are made for. 98 would mean 9.8 cms dia which might be unique.

Punto comes in 98 (pcd), so this one (Linea) could also be 98.

Somebody, please validate this explanation for PCD.

Yup: PCD is Pitch circle diameter.
Imagine a circle drawn with the centre points of all the wheel mounting bolts as points on its circumference. The diameter of that circle is the PCD. It's usually expresed in millimetres (mm) in automotive lingo.

Different manufacturers use different PCD's for different platforms. Ford & Tata for example use 108 PCD on all their passenger cars.

Fiat uses 98 PCD - which is very unique, atleast in India. Perhaps once we see Fiat sales improving, we should find more afterarket optins for alloy wheels.
