  1. @ Phew... u r suggesting 185/70 whereas my original tyre size if 165/80... will it be ok to put tyre of different specification? will it affect the warrenty or performance?

    This is an upsize which is recommended for Punto as things get better with the upsize and no issues would arise regarding warranty or performance. It will improve handling and grip to a certain extent(provided u opt for good brands) which is always a good thing

    Are you sure about this? AFAIK, any change in the OE tyre size can lead to warranty on suspension being denied.

    Yes, I had earlier run my car on 205/55/15 and now on 205/45/17, no issues with warranty as such.

    You mean you made a warranty claim on suspension / related components and it was honoured, even after the tyre upsize?

    Phew, this doesn't mean everybody would get the warranty. Normally they would do, but they are well with-in right to decline.

    Warranty can be claimed as long as the tyre size is within the maximum offered by the manufacturer for that make.

    For example, it's 195/60/R15 for the Punto offered on the fully loaded trim.

    Possibilities like these are always there so no one can make a sure shot guess and hence the call is of the individual. Nor did I ever say that everybody gets it. One asked me did I get it and hence I said yes, so according to me there are no issues with it.

    Neither did I say everyone gets it, I got it so I mentioned it. And they are well with-in right to decline alot of things, maybe we could use a thread for that too.
