Nothing wrong in that as long as they are having fun and the Fiats are making them have it. As long as they are keeping the right pcd and the right offset it doesn't matter.

The wheels on my car are 98 pcd and a offset of 40/41, ensures that the wheel outer line is in the same place with the rim and tyre being wider than the stock 132. Although I got mine direct from Hindalco, as my Dad worked on one of their projects and this particular rim was suggested by their engineer. Who was known to be mechanically very sound in his knowledge. He also warned us that anything else will affect the wheel bearings moreover he was also instrumental in suggesting the specific tyre size.

See if you can procure that design, but highly unlikely, because they designed this specially for Padmini's (otherwise which other car has 98 pcd!) and later on seeing the lack of demand, stopped it. Even I doubt if I would have been able to procure it from outside.

One thing, have you tried the Palio Alloy rims. I guess the offset will be different and the central hole will foul with the grease cap.

That sure looks original. The mod jobbed Dukkars would mostly have a Safari like tail (in contrast this one looks authentic).

May be the image in the brochure below gives some idea if the stationwagon is original or a modified job.

A split glass may be a later alteration. The strange bonnet lines are definitely a later modification. The front door hinges are definitely a modification. The rest may well be genuine, I doubt anybody can make such a pleasant looking wagon conversion in the country, looking at previous exploits!

What does the black number plate tell you? And why didnt you get more pics?!
