Exclamation Help needed to source alloys for Petra

Hi everyone. If anyone has knowledge / access regarding any dealer holding stocks for 14" 98 PCD wheels please help me out. I would prefer dealers in Delhi / Mumbai 'coz of familiarity issues. HR does not have them neither do Aura and Neo. An importer I spoke to in Delhi suggested very casually that I pick up 100 PCD 4 Hole set and 'grind kar lo bilkul thoda sa
'
Any help on this would be highly appreciated.

98 PCD is very rare - in the sense that, like you found out, very few manufacturers make rims for that PCD.
Using 100PCD should be your last option, 2 friends of mine had alot of problems when they used the same on their Palios. Dont know about the above experience though.
Im going to be paying my alloy guy a visit sometime soon, shall find out from him - think he mentioned something about 98PCD last time I was there. What design are you looking at? As in, like machine black, hypersilver, chrome etc etc? Just so I have a better idea as to what to look out for.

I also own a Petra and thinking of changing to alloys. The biggest problem encountered is that of 98 PCD. Adventure alloys (by Fiat) are available in 14" size (INR 28000 - as quoted by Dynamic Automobiles Noida). You can go for that option.

Cheers!!!

Thanks anant, not much emphasis on design or finish. It's more of a convinience factor to do away with constantly getting steel rims bent. Will manage with whatever design you can offer.

Aura has couple of designs in 98 PCD 14" alloys!

Pls contact the Aura distributor at your place, he will source it for you!

For my Palio, I had bought Aura 98 PCD 14" alloys, check the pics in my Garage.

Aura has 2 good designs (rest aren't available anymore) in 98 pcd.
They're good alloys and very much reliable than the cheap imported kinds.

There're many who have successfully installed 100 pcd alloys on FiAT cars. But my personal experience was very bad and will not recommend that.

Thanks for the help guys. I guess Aura Distributors down south have some old stock with them. I deal with Aura directly and the distributor here has steadfastly refused that any wheels are available.
