    Ya saw that Jazz. It is looking hot BUT Iam sure it wont suit on a Punto in any way.

    I saw them on a swift in the other forum,and AFAIK they are 8J in Width,so even a 195 section tyre might be puny for them.
    These alloys will need at least 205 Section tyre.

    The other way is stretching tire, the mentioned jazz is suing stretched 195 section tires only. We just need someone who can experiment as none is doing this in India, forget North side.

    Stretching would mean playing with tyre's tensile strength,and i wouldnot be really comfortable with it.

    In fact, he has stretched 175 or 185 section tires(photo attached) !! there has to be enough sidewall height to do that.. This was an experiment, successfully done, but now we got to wait n see how its going to last !! If you see some highly modded streetcars of japan, etc, you can see those tires stretched to limits n slammed outwards, those tires will wear out faster than u can think, but think, its good for wearing out those old JK Tornados(for me :D). even 205 is not enough, 215 seems more apt !!

    Stretching = certified gold plated Ricer. Even worse than those hellaflush cars with ridiculous camber. But just my opinion.
