    Yes you can fit 15" alloy in punto
    I think it does not required any modification
    Yes it definitely impact speed o meter reading. The Speed-o-Meter reading depends on your Tyre profiles

    Suggested profiles:
    195/60R15 - 0.75% fast means 100 KM/h = 100.75 KM/H
    205/60R15 - 1.18% slow means 100 KM/h = 98.82 - This would be the better upgrade.

    Puntosingh, I am using 15" Linea steel rims with Linea active wheel caps in my Punto Active.

    Punto/Linea rims/alloys are all 98PCD and are a perfect fit "without" needing anything like Hub centric caps or anything. Just get the rims/alloys and put them on.

    My Active came with JK tyres 165/80R14. I have moved to 195/60R15 Goodyear GT3 as it causes minimal error in the odo. The difference is just 0.67% between the two.

    I just noticed a typo in my previous post and have corrected it and highlighted.

    I repeat. You do NOT need anything extra like hub centric rings etc.

    Linea rims and alloys can be fitted directly to Punto and vice versa.

    Guys quick question

    Is there a difference between the wheel bolts which come with the alloys and steel wheels?

    Are you asking if they are different or incompatible with each other? If your question is about compatibility, there is no issue with that. The spare wheel provided for most FIATs is a steel one and the same bolts as used for the alloys are used for the Steel rims as well.

    I know its compatible with both alloys and steel wheel but is there a cosmetic difference between the ones that come with steel and the one that come with alloy?

    AFAIK there is a difference in finish and design of the bolts.

    Rim bolts looks like aluminum and alloys Chrome.

    Check in 99rpm website for reference.
