Default Am I on the right path?

Guys,
I have got the OE alloys.You all know that.But even at this juncture i have a confusion.That is whether to take all the headache of a great looking 100 pcd aftermarket wheel or to have a peace of mind with my stock wheels.The car cannot look so unique though.

Vignesh, you have already bit the bullet, so why not go ahead with it. Adventure vs. peace of mind, well, it is for you to take a call.

aren't the alloys OE punto alloys 98 PCD?. if then i think you should go ahead with the OE alloys! sure it won't look different and stuff but dude. you bought a punto. you are already standing out from the mango ppls.(aam janta) uniqueness is not a thing to worry about in this case. and those alloys look awesome man its quite the funky design!! i think you should go with it. (assuming you have already bought them?!!). its upto you man!!

I love the seat covers and the audi'sh grill. But i somehow think you can find better looking 16" alloys with 98PCD.

i would love a simpler alloy which i have seen on the UK Grande Punto. Attaching a pic of that here, try looking for somein like this, it will really make the car look hot. If you wanna check, goto Fiat.co.uk | Fiat Showroom : Latest Offers, Book a Test Drive, Fiat Car Range and more, and customize your own Grande Punto 5 Door. you can see these alloys there and it makes the car look awesome.

i think the multispoke alloys look good on particularly punto. but your choice is also very nice. punto would need at least 16". and i think it wouldn't affect the ride quality very much.

oh and this is very important. plz check the OE alloys, check for bents and cracks and stuff!! you never know man! just keep ya eyes open. just a thought bro!
