@ Sound Affects: was the car still on the jack when the pictures were taken?

there seems to be a big gap above the wheel.

Its not like fiat's run only on 98pcd, but its just that they perform better on 98pcd. There's nothing wrong in fitting 100pcd as long as u feel its ok

Totally second that, I have a friend who is running 100 pcd on his Punto. He is totally happy and nothing to complain about.
He didn't find any difference at all from the stock alloys.

fitting 100PCD wheels on 98PCD might have it's own drawbacks, which we may not notice now.
btw, 10/10 for alloys, they are superb.

Looks good Sound Affects now all you need is some lowering springs to complete the pimped out look!

P.S. Pete's box next?

Hey Sound Affects, I've personally believed that there are 2 kinds of people who mod there rides (like install Alloys, etc):
ONE'S WHO CAN (loads of CASH)
ONE'S WHO WANT TO (loads of CLASS)

Sure's Hell you fall into the Second Category buddy coz I guess you just did not pick these but did lot of mix n' match.
The result is Evident, only one word describes it - STUNNER!!

PLEASE POST SOME MORE SNAPS OF THE SAME WITH THE COMPLETE CAR IN THE FRAME.

I actually got a mail a few days back from PJ saying that there are attractive discounts available for the BBS rims. You should probably call him and check it out.

thank you sir, the lowering thing will happen sooner rather than later I can rely on FIAT more than relying on the lowering springs

about the Pete's it sure is next on the list but seemingly I don have the correct info. as to how much of a difference will it make so yet to finalize on that. It'll be great if you can shed some light on that

Lovely look. Isn't the wheels on a very low profile, how is the ride comfort.

I am developing a craze towards the konig wheels, unfortunately its' not available in a big city like chennai.

Spotted this today.
Its 17" wheel. Tyre was Michelin 215/50-R17.
Alloy was in gun metal finish with red lining on the inside of the wheel.
Really liked the finish.
