    Hi I have purchased a second hand Punto 1.3 Em. Pk. It has 16" F1 alloy wheels with Yokohama S drive 205/50 R16 tyres. I am confused tyres and alloys are oversize. Does these effect the performance. please suggest me.
  2. You will get better grip due to wider section tyres but lose a little of mileage thanks to increased friction because of the wider section tyres.

    Our puntos can manage up to 17'' and will not cause any harm.. only -ve is a small drop in millage.. but will compensate for the added grip and handling ... the ride may be bumpy if the profile is too low..that too will depend on the road condition..

    overall i won't be very bothered..

    post some pictures..

  5. 16" alloys look absolutely cool and you will get an awesome grip. There should be no reason for you to be worried. Its an awesome sight on road with the alloys you have.

    is it Punjab registered?? here in AP, @ that price, its a pretty good deal considering the set of alloys and the s drives!! But in general its a good deal, if the car has extended warrenty!
