    HI SRINI,I opted for 14" primarily for 3 reasons-----

    1)Wanted better protection for alloys on bad road conditions.
    2)Didnot want to sacrifice even an mm of ground clearence.
    3)Preferred more comfort (particularly in bad road condition) over better handling.(TOUCHED 110 kmph ONCE AND FOUND HANDLING NOT AT ALL BAD. YES 15" WOULD DEFINITELY BE BETTER IN THIS FRONT)

    14" gives me the scope for using higher profile tyres.And I achieved all the three goals with 195/70 14.

    beautiful pics sandipan. the alloys nicely suits the car, just wish it could be at least 15" !!! it wouldn't have been a big prob at all as even the stock ones for e pack comes in 15"! with 195 65 on 15" would have definitely improved the gc without compromising on the comfort levels as well.
    the stickers near the side indicators just look misaligned. think of some alternatives.. just use the punto badge above the blinkers and remove fiat one.. it should look gud !! like this : http://www.teamfiat.co.in/forum/showthread.php?703-Meet-at-Trivandrum&p=11742&viewfull=1#post11742
