    Hello friends,
    From the day i bought my car it has been a nice driving experience, till date i didn't got chance to go for long drives but would like to share the driving experience in city itself.

    The torque and the power of this car is unbelievable, i could easily shift to fifth gear so easily with so much power. In traffic no accelerator the car moves so good on clutch itself wowwww. when we talk about the fuel efficiency its too gr8 with a new car was able to get 17 kmpl in city conditions.Overall i would say this giant is much better than other other cars in the same segment present in the market.

    I just had my tyre upgradation:) pics follows

    the design looks good, but personally, I think it would have been a killer if the size was 15".

    Please do use an alloy wheel cleaner \ break dust repellent and keep her shining.

    Good upgrade, you have better GC now. Hows the Turanza behaving in terms of comfort and grip?

    The grip is superb i get more control now on the steering wheel. The ground clearance is more as of now in comparision to what i use to get earlier.

    The time i visited my fiat workshop they told me there was some problem with 15'' alloy, due to the 100 pcd problem. they told me some guys faced problem while running the vehicle as the Tyre came out automatically while running at high speeds. Due to this reason i thought of going with 14'' alloy wheels.

    Personally i wanted to upgrade to 15'' alloy and broad tyres to get my monster a sexy look but ...

    There are some dumb dealers who don't have 98PCD 15" alloys in stock and simply try to sell whatever they have in stock, and publish all sort of imaginative stories. Never mind, those muscular tires and alloys are sexy too.

    Pran for the new Punto's 'Emotion variant', the tire size is 165/80 R14. Earlier they used to give 175/70 r14.
    The radius of 165/80 R14 is 309.62 mm & that of 185/70 R14 is 307.08 mm.
