    My quest for 98 PCD alloys led me to NeoWheels factory at Navi Mumbai since MIDC are closed on Friday I reached its godown and came across only available design with 98 PCD for Punto in 14" wheel.

    what about the saimag wheels h412 in full machine black?
    i have seen the alloy and it looks quite good.
    are you planning for 15 or 14" ?

    MANU,

    Sai Mag wheels are indeed better looking alloys, but the only concern. I can't see it in person before buying and they are multi PCD alloys. However, I'm trying to search for them in Mumbai may be tomorrow. But than let's see. I'm still in delima in between 14" and 15". Finance are tight ;). If I plan for 15" than I may need to shell out for tyres and alloys at a time.

    Let's what I end up with. ;)

    BTW which alloys, are you using?

    No alloys as of now :( , my stock tires are 10k old ,
    but i will go for 15" in a while, may be Linea alloys or the sai h412

    i think your car has done 20k right?
    why dont you wait for a few more kms , use them fully and then go for 15" alloys + tires?

    And the search goes on... :car

    Went to Anand Tyres as suggested by Andy, but they are out of stock. Don't know when to expect next lot for 98 PCD. Explored Bombay tyres near Milan subway, said SORRY SIR! Infinity tyres near to Bombay Tyres, got the same reply SORRY SIR!!! :hit

    Meanwhile I got call from Sai Mag Wheels, got the Mumbai address. it's -

    Saifee Tyre Service
    Shop #6 Opp. Gokul Ice Cream.
    Saraswati Road, Near Poddar School.
    Santacruz (W) . Mumbai 400054

    PH: 022- 26493819, 66943340
    Mbl: 9820043823

    I was given booklet and had multiple designs to choose from (multiple PCD 98 + 100) but worth looking at it. I really liked the following designs H 325 or H 125 if I'am going with 14". Or else may be H 412 with 15".

    Grandeur, both alloys are very good looking. Even my next addition will be Alloys.

    I know 15" alloys will cost much more, as tyre will also needs to be replaced. I think with 14", the spare tyre can be kept same as current one. With 15", you may have to change that also. But with 15", i am sure Ground Clearance will increase a bit.

    What do you think OE stock tyre, Bridgestone, will last long?
