    There will be a reduction in ground clearance by approximately 2.54mm. Negligible in my opinion.

    hey guys!! today i went to get the new seat covers in sector-27(vikas autos) but the guy there asked me to come tomorrow morning because the good variety fabric had arrived late today!! so after that i went to the adjoining alloy wheels showroom and there i saw many cool 14"-15'' alloy wheels designs from "NEO" and the guy there told me that he will get the whole work done including stock tyres change in rs19000(if i choose goodyear tyres) and some 3-4000 more if i choose the bridgestone tyres of size 195/60/R15..!! and if i opt for 14'' concept then that would cost me around 16500 and vice versa!! now i want some suggestions from fellow t'fians regarding this company "neo" and if i am going on a correct path!! also the alloy wheels i saw(dont know abt if it was 98PCD or 100 will confirm it tomorrow) but i saw 4 holes for bolts in them which i guess shall fit in my gp!:confused: but i was really impressed by the no. of designs they had :D i mean they have all the designs available in all sizes(thats what the showroom guy told me) and here i am attaching the designs i liked and confused in between:p

    just now i saw in their site those alloys are with pcd rating of 4X100..:confused: now i want to know how many ppl have gone with 100PCD alloys?? i mean i went through a very helpful post by "royj" about alloy wheels and configuring their size..but wanted to know if those hub centric rings or wobble bolts would be available easily or not??:confused:

    Mayank, Hub centric rings are required whenever you go for after market alloys. You need to find out the inner bore of the alloy wheel and choose the hub centric rings accordingly. The inner diameter for the rings would be 58.1mm for Fiat. Outer diameter of the rings should be the inner bore of the alloy wheel. Myself and a few other TFI members Pran and Soccerfan got their hub centric rings from this site. Once the order is placed, you will receive them in about 3 weeks.

    There are some who have gone for 100pcd wheels, personally I would never recommend them in place of 98pcd.

    MAYANK,I opted for 14" alloy with 195/70 R14 YOKO-A DRIVE for my 1.3 MJD EMOTION.I did all those mods right after taking the delivery.

    Completed 2000+ km,touched 130+ on NH41----No issues so far.Handling & steering feel is good(if not brilliant) at 130+ speed.

    Brilliant on bad and broken roads.HRS has few designs in 98 & 98+100 pcds.You may check my ownership thread for pics of alloys.

    5 Alloys costed me 21500/-.

    185/70 R14 is just the right upsize. I did that and initially I felt the steering was heavy, but now the feeling has settled down. 195/60 R14 will reduce the GC as well as make the steering heavy.

    congrats sandipan :) but now i am thinking about 15'' alloys because i dont think there will be any much difference if i go for 14'' or 15''..because at the end of the day i am going for broad tyres so the heavy steering is one thing that i will have to compromise upon in both the cases :) and please post some pics of your gp with alloys you have installed :)
