    Hi All,

    I am wondering whether the balancing for Puntos MJD should be done on lugcentric or hub centric balancing equipment. ??
  2. balancing is for the wheels, to remove un evenness of weight distribution, which causes vibrations in the steering column.
    hub centric rings are required if you have after market wheels and suffer from wobbling issues.(the rings sit tightly, removing any space for the rim to wobble on the hub)

    AFAIK, we have a hub centric system for Punto. The original wheels are centered on the hub. For more info

    For punto its 98 PCD. It is not advaisable to go for 100 PCD, but few members have opted for 100 PCD and i am not sure how it performs.

    Hub centric rings size depends on the inner dia of the alloy wheel hub and the outer dia of the car's hub.
