    Not needed.. Just produce a bill that is dated old, like 4-5months old ..
    There is another way you can bring the alloys as is. Just buy it and ask for a bill that is anything less than 25k (mind you the billed amount after conversion should be less than 25k).
    For further details on what all are allowed please look at the URL i pasted earlier.

    I bought a plasma worth "considerable amount" (in indian rs) and other electronic stuff and payed customs of just 7K ;-)

    Does this under-invoicing thing work abroad as well, as we can do here ?? and does it matter even if it exceeds our baggage limit by big margin?

    Not as easy as in india but definitely possible if you keep visiting a stores and give them the assurance that you will buy something credible from them.
    This is tough as the weight depends on the design ,the complexity of alloys and alloy composition .

    A few pointers.
    1.) Different airlines offer different weight restrictions on baggage , choose the one which gives you the most (Emirates, BA all offer great deals if your a frequent flyer)
    2.) Indian customs also have different rules on how much you can and cannot bring back to india depending on the duration of your stay abroad.(Go through the URL i pasted earlier).

    Just do a bit of ground work on all these things and you will not regret the time you've spent ( You WILL find many loop holes in the law and you can contest)

    FINAL NOTE::
    Even if you don't want to go through all these hassles and even with "ABSOLUTE" custom duties levied on your alloys it will still be way way cheaper than getting it in india.
    My only point is , since you are already in a great place to buy variety of stuff , dont miss the opportunity to do so.

    Correct technical upgrade will be 16" alloys with 205/55/R16 tyres. No fuss no issues.

    This would probably be my next set-up. BTW, can I go for 215/55/R16? Hope I would find some nice 16" alloy models in Hyderabad.

    I Dont think the 16 alloys will be a best bet in the Punto. Please take into consideration about the turn to turn clearance and the current alloys offset before putting in money on the alloys.

    @nkrishnap: One of our members, Nimish is running his GP 90HP oops 110HP on 17 inchers with 215/45/R17 tyres and he never had the above said issues.
