    Punto's tyre condition after 6k kms

    Friends,

    Need your valuable advice. Here are the pics of my Punto's Goodyear GT3 tyre which has done @ 6,300 kms. To be precise during first 5,000 kms these were front tyres and after rotation, these are at rear now. The circled spots are a matter of concern to me. Is the wear and tear too much? Cos I notice the small threads on the outer corners of the tyre are worn out. Till date I havent faced any issue with suspension noise or car pulling towards one particular direction etc etc. Its has been absolutely normal.

    I feel the small thread patterns on the outer portion of the tyre are getting flat faster than the inner portion. I have been always maintaining standard 32 psi pressure and most of the time ensure that its a cold tyre air fill.

    Please advice! I had earlier mentioned this issue in my ownership thread as well - http://www.teamfiat.co.in/punto-1-3-mjd/6592-got-punto-emotion-ed-27th-june-2012-a-3.html

    Hi Harsh , You dont really need to spend money on alloys . I took inspiration from Sidindicas mods and bought myself linea steel rims and linea active wheels caps and MRF ZLO 195 60 R 15 . The ride is butter smooth now and very planted . Even my JKs had done only 19000 Kms but they were so crappy ... I finally decided to change them and get these and am loving it .

    Looks really nice. Could you post a close up of the Linea Active wheel caps? If you don't mind, could you also share the price you paid for the wheel caps?
