Minor Issues - Tyres/Alloys

  1. Cool, i thought it might be faulty tyres.. but this cars never makes me slow down at curves, infact i enjoyed the screeching sound other than that the car was still in total control during the turns

    Steering vibration

    I just got the rack changed under extended warranty after running 58000 Kms as it was giving noise and had developed play.now the noise is gone after the change but there is some vibration in the steering and I feel steering is hard.I feel vibrations in the steering at higher speed and also during drive on bad roads.What could be the reason for the vibration.

    I felt this (steering vibrations @ 130 - 140 kmph speed) but then in my case the tyres were worn out after 57K kms. After changing the tyres, I've not taken the car on highway but it seems the vibrations have gone. Need to check it though.

    How are tyres in your car? Replaced already?

    Either tyres need balancing or your alloys/rims are bent.

    Alloys Available in Bangalore contact required for Punto

    Hello TFiat'ians.

    After a lot of research, test drive and a lot of grilling on choices i have decided it is PUNTO 1.3 MJD and booked the new "BLUE" color.

    Choose it to be Dynamic version and I'm currently waiting to hear from Concorde as to when they will deliver my car.

    Now i have three important Question for people in Bangalore / everyone in the Punto Fmly

    1> Can i change the stock tyre to something bigger l like the "195 / 60" Currently "165 / 80" or any other advisable combination??
    2> Can i change the stock steel rims to something bigger l like the 15" Currently 14" or any other advisable combination??
    3> The best place to buy alloys for Punto in Bangalore or if there is anyone who can send it out to Bangalore???

    Awaiting your response.

    Thank you,

    Warm Regards,
    Anish

    Congratulations Anish.
    Of course yes. Best combination on steel rim would be to go to 185/70, R14.

    Yes, you can. You can put 15" alloys, and can put tyre of 195/60, R15 size. This is OE size of top version.
    These is no one place to be called as best place. Visit all shops and see if you can get 15" alloy, with 98 PCD.

    Do you get vibration when car is in motion ? Or at stationery ?If in motion, then ASS might have kept nut-bolts of steering rack loose. Ask them to varify proper fitting of rack.
