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 Karan ,

Thats a pretty setup for your active mjd , i got some help with mine as i have a similar setup for myself (FIRE ACTIVE)
i just need to know the dealer in mumbai who did this for u ??
you can also PM his contacts too

You got the figures posted earlier & wanted to know were 1000 bucks were
adjusted for 5 Tyres+Rims ???

Please let me know soon as i am waiting for a up-sizing soon

Cheers
TND

You can contact Gaurav - 9819207605

Hes the dealer for LENSO's

I got paid 1000 Rs per Tyre , the stock rims are still with me.

Now, my car has clocked 15k kms. Should send it for 2nd servicing in a day or two.

Touched the TOP SPEED of 170 km/h its rock steady at that speed too.

Neowheels has updates his site. Under wheel match, you can select Punto/Linea and see the fitment. Looks cool to me.

Default Alloys for white Punto!

Hey friends, I have just booked a new Punto in white colour.

As you all know, sourcing 98 PCD alloys is a big issue but somehow I have found these designs on the net (the ones in yellow box). Which one would look better on a white punto, the white one or black one?

White Punto (Rim + Tyre upgrade) EDIT : Pics on Page 2-alloys.jpg

These are from 69 Racing wheels.

Sorry for answering all your threads on the Punto But if you have an Emotion pack then please keep the stock alloys. They look much better than these. Only the Lineas alloys would do justice to the car.

Akshay just saw the Book My Car Thread.Its a Punto 90HP so it has the emotion pack alloys.
IMHO OEM alloys painted will look way better then the above designs.There isnt much option too in 98 PCD

I agree with cityvic and akshay1234, please keep the OEM alloys. If you really want to go for the aftermarket ones, IMHO the black ones would be better.

I say if the car comes with OEM alloys, keep them and don't paint them, stock look is always the best, and painted alloys will not look good after a while.
