    165/80 R14 - Rolling Radius- 309.80 mm; Circumference - 1946.53 mm.
    195/65 R15 - Rolling Radius- 317.25 mm; Circumference - 1993.34 mm.

    This upsize will increase the GC by 7.45 mm. However, the difference is 2.4%, which is more than the usually recommended 2%.

    Nice capture! How did it happen if you are using the car on daily basis? :)

    Btw, what is that amber glow light on top of the dashboard? Is it bulb blown indicator?

    thats what surprised me :) jave not cleaned it from inside for sometime though!!
    Yes, it is supposed to indicate that a bulb is not working but all of them are working so looks like it is because my punto's battery has become weak!!
