Yep, your Jazzy seriously needs some fat rubber buddy!!

But as Sumit has adviced, go in for a 195/60 profile Michelin rubber though I'm not sure if that would scrape the chassis!!
IMO would advice you to go in for 195/55 profile, would look Great and feel good as well!!

Thanks for the advice guys! I will definitely consider the Michelins. The CPC2s sound quite tempting as well. I will consult nikhilb2008 for the tyres and his view on this as he's the best in the business.

Sumit, no plans on upgrading your shoes? Although the Punto's stock alloys look brilliant, have you considered something else as well?

My punto is running on 195/60-R15 Continental CPC2.
98PCD alloys are hard to find.
My punto is a lower model and did not come with alloys. I purchased these alloys as I did not like the options available in 98PCD.

I do have plans to upgrade the alloys, once I find alloys to my liking.
I am looking for alloys in 98PCD with slightly negative offset, matt black in color and a very prominent mirror lip.
That really limits my options.

Looks nice. In the last picture, the alloys looks like a woofer.
Do post pictures of your jeep with alloys on.

If you're planning on upgrading to wheels that have a negative offset and a prominent lip, I'm guessing you're going to go larger than 15"? Or are you going to stick to the stock size?

There is another Sumit on this forum (from Delhi) and he has a red Punto with wheels that match the description of the wheels you'd like to upgrade to! Why don't you get in touch with him?

Sorry for going OT.

I am planning to keep it 15" only.
I have seen the car (Sumit"s red punto) you are talking about.
I did send him a PM around 4 months ago, but did not hear back from him.
The alloys on his car are almost the exact same alloys I am looking for!!!

Aparth,

You've got a seriously hot set of wheels there! The black ANHC with LS SC08s look out of this world! Are those 16"? Anyway, I suggest you drop the ride-height if you don't mind and if you don't encounter too many speed-bumps that threaten your City's underbelly! It would look brilliant once it's 2" closer to Earth!

Fantastic! Couldn't look more butch even if it tried! Nice tyres too! Why don't you do more justice to this beast by taking more photographs somewhere else. On the road or better still, off it perhaps?

Thanks! Yeah they are 16"s. Even I had plans of lowering the car but when 3 or 4 people are sitting in the car, the underbelly scrapes the speed bumps sometimes.
