    Sun - Those are wheel caps and pretty easily lure as making it look like Alloys.

    Thanks Teky. You had mentioned it in one of the chennai-banglore meet post. What I want to say was about the design of spokes in general:)

    From where did you get the spoiler fitted. At Service center or at dealership? Since spoiler is a accessory I want to know whether service center people do it?

    got it fixed at SC. since it has to be painted before fixing so SC willingly does it at a cost. quoted price on the website is without paint.

    Shams, Your Punto's wheel looks good. No one can easily find this is a wheel cap from Far. Looks good as like alloy really.

    hi Ganges, haven't tested it with full load but with four people onboard there is no problem.

    Recently I have been noticing the plastic wheel arches touch the tyre when the steering is fully turned. This could very well be due to wheel arch becoming loose so need to get it checked before blaming the tyres for it.

    Theres no problem at all when passing over speed breakers/ potholes
