Default Re: Alloys for white Punto!

Raj, Congratulations!! Also how did you read my mind. I've been contemplating starting a thread like this since a few days, but Lazy Me.

Anyway, I have a white Punto too (Emotion, so not OEM Alloys) and from my research

- Get White if you want a more classy look. But White ones are High maintenance.
- Get Black if you want a 'Sinister' look. White Punters look real 'Mean' in black alloys with black tints etc.

Now for my question, What brand is this (69 ??), never heard of it.. Are these pics just a design sample? I see that '69' is based out of Mumbai, do they source to Bangalore too? Do you the pricing for a set of 4 ?

And yeah I've heard (from a reliable source) that AVA Alloys have some nice designs in 98PCD.

Please keep us posted...

Still a tough one. If I were you, I would check the Alloys in flesh (or atleast check high resolution pics) and take a call. I've seen soo many instances when Alloys in Flesh look better (or worse) than the Pics. From the site, I'd pick the Black ones. Black ones seem to have a Angle at which the spokes meet the Outer-rim part, while the white ones seem a lil more Plain-Jane. But still check in flesh and then decide. Hope this helps.

Default Re: White Punto (Rim + Tyre upgrade) EDIT : Pics on Page 2

Guys, I found a set of alloys which are 7J. Will the stock 195 section tyres fit on these wheels?

I dont want to change the stock tyres for now.

Hi ,

7J rim ahhh . whats the RIM profile ? Is it 16 in or 15 in?
195 .60 R15 are stock size on a punto though people on dynamics & active's have done
+1 upsize from a 165.80 R14 or 175 sections to the above size.
If you dont want to change the tyre the min recommended
rim size has to be 6J rim for snugfit
