Thanks, Would have loved to have a 16 / 17 " setup of the same rims , but would have hampered the ride quality as this is the car which is to be used on a daily basis and mostly will be driven by my driver.

Thanks karan for the pics. Now waiting for the inside pics.

Do let us know the cost of the alloys and the make. Planning to get for my new ikon TDCi.

first of all congrats on the punto and double congrats on those hwaaatttt alloys.

Please tell us how you proceeded with 100 pcd wheels. There are many waiting for alloys on punto.

I havent faced any problems with the PCD yet . There is no vibration or whatsoever at high speeds ( which is noticed between 80-120 km/h )

Have fitted OE Bolts the dealer whom i purchased these rims from is the distributor of lenso and he never suggested me to go in for wobble bolts or any customised bolts for the same, in fact he said try out the OE bolts if they fit it would be great otherwise buy bolts which would be costing in the range of Rs 700-1000 or for racing bolts that would be aprox Rs 2200 .

so was it a direct fit without any modifications to wheels or punto? No filing of holes or anything else?

karan,

Thats a brilliant set up except the PCD mismatch in the alloys. Although i must say the tyre choice is just ideal. Reason being they [ES100] are the lightest performance tyres of the whole lot and have the best cornering ability because of the design and construction of the tyre.
The mismatch on the PCD on the alloy does not provide a perfect centre to the alloy and hence there could be very noticeable vibrations very soon. It wont happen right away as you mentioned they are behaving as of now. The job of fitting the 100 to the 98 PCD is not very precise and hence the alloys do not face perfectly with the hub edge. This sets the entire load on to your nuts and not the hub as should be ideally. However, since you have lensos, this problem could be delayed because of the sheer lightness of the model of the alloy you have chosen. You should actually be gaining on top speed with this set, as the alloys are lighter and the tyres have the least rolling resistance.

Look forward For the K&N for your car next, and the PETES box later. Bet you would be driving one PUNTO, with some performance to recall every drive.

Point Noted.

As far as the performance mods are concerned , frankly speaking i havent ripped the car yet ( not gone above 2500 rpm ) but i feel the straight line capablity of the car wouldnt be great like it was of the swift BUT i somehow feel the MJD is more torquey than it felt in the swift ( is it because if the shorter gear ratios ? ) May go in for a PETES BOX after 18 months or so.

The cost of the alloys was Rs 21,000 /-

The Tyres cost me Rs. 3900/- each

I traded in my stock tyres (165/80 R14 , JK Tornados) for Rs 1000 each

There was no modification required. It was a DIRECT FIT.

hi

what do you mean by PCD. and what is the PCD of the ANHC. How do you check that the PCD of the alloy wheels matches the PCD required.
