    Hi friends,
    I'm planning to switch to Grande Punto 15“ OEM gunmetal alloy wheels from Linea's steel wheels; as there is an offer till May 31st (5k for an alloy + price of center cap and bolts) .

    When I checked with a service advisor about the wheel bolts used for alloys, he opined that we can use those bolts used with steel wheels. However I'm not sure about his opinion, that Fiat uses the same bolts on Punto emotion to use with the OEM alloys.

    Can anybody please confirm the same? It may be dangerous to use unsuitable set of bolts with alloys if the length of the bolt varies, I guess so.

    Thank you so much.

    all puntos and lineas use the same bolts. No harm in using old bolts.

    Friend, are you sure Fiat uses same bolts for OEM alloys too, from factory?

    To my surprise, the service advisor told me that, the tool bag of Grande Punto variants that have installed OEM alloys from factory have a different kind of wrench to use with bolts of smaller head length. Is it true? I have no idea because I have a dynamic variant.

    Thanks SunnyBoi and Naveen2cool for sharing the experience of upgrading to alloys. I already got my lady running on Fiat OEM Gunmetal alloys. She looks more beautiful than before :cool:

    Looks great and goes well with the silver shade. I can see an elder fiat padmini on the background :) Would like to see more pictures of the car.
