iam planing to go for 15 inch alloys if and when i get hold of them.
On the stock RIM the best bet would be 195/70 R14 good year assurance or equivalent.

@ ms001 - I have two questions;
1. Is the stock tyres on Punto Emotion tubeless type?
2. Is the stock Blaupunkt stereo set with the speakers good enough for an average music lover?

Thanks.

1) stock tyres on all variants are tubeless
2) Mine is active variant does not come with built in stereo .But i would say the stereo on emotion is decent , unless you want good bass with clarity at high volume.

Default 98 pcd available

guys,
people looking for 98 PCD 15 inchers,pm me.One dealer has got some 4 designs in 20 different combos.with different lip colours.the finish is either black machine or chrome.the wheels are made at LENSO taiwan,but the branding is done by the dealer himself.One more thing one design is very close to Punto OE wheel.but i have got my wobbly bolts from UK.So i am most probably getting MOMO Ten S 100 pcd rims in 15".no more confusions.its only 100 pcd for my car.bolts have costed me 2.6K.so no more thinking.

Great pics! Enjoy the ride buddy . She is a great car to drive, I need not reiterate that here.

PS - Does the Punto use Veglia Borletti Speedos or are they different?
