    In AVA they had some pure 98 pcd too. But the problem is that the choices are really limited. Atleast 98-100 gives you more range to pick from (again in relation to pure 100s its limited). In my case my tyres & rims were almost through with their life. AVA had 2 options of 98 which I didnt like so had to go opt fo 98-100. Asthetically the extra holes dont really hamper the overall looks though I m not sure of the strength part that u mentioned.

    Hi Torque_tnd ,

    Nice choice of alloys .

    I have one question for you !!!
    Now , u have used these alloys for around six months , how do u maintain the white color ?
    All the brake dust , dirt etc accumulating on the white would be a tough job to get rid off ???
    You must be getting it cleaned everyday ???

    I was looking for white with red lip for my punto !!!!

    removed them from the old wheel caps & pasted on this one. Not sure how long they will stay.

    Hi Dilip

    Actually the FIAT logo is a bit of a mismatch. You cant make out in the pics but if observe closely the alloys are sparkling & new but the logo is a bit faded & lost the gloss...but they are anytime better than having the alloy maufacturers logo on the alloy.

    Hi Japa
    These are AVA alloys from Handsome. Got them from hyderabad. Cost Rs. 15k for set of 4 (fitting charges not included). Got no idea about HR. On potholes just be extra cautious. I made a mistake by reducing the tyre profile. I suggest if ur changing to alloys either maintain 60 profile tyres or increase to 65 (this may offset some impact). My tyres are 55/205. They look great, the handling is amazing, the ride on flat roads is fabulous. But the car rubs every breaker with more than 2 people. So besides the alloys be careful to choose the right set of tyres. By the way the tyres are MAXXIS. They are much much better & comfortable than goodyears.
