    Polo wale happily buy a Polo (German) with four 15 inch alloys but a 14-inch spare tyre. They can surely compromise by buying three 15 inch alloys while retaining the fourth tyre as a 14 inch spare.

    Basically, my point is Pointless :lol: but aimed at all those (including the one whom I met 4-5 days back) who say that their Polo is superior than Punto as it's German. :irked :mischievous

    Ok ... so if I upgrade frm 14' to 15' ,, I neednt go for a 15' steel rim for spare ..
    I thought I may have to go for a 15' spare too as d car may drive tilted to one side with three 15' and one 14' ....

    Arrey Dilip bhai, if you want to upgrade to 15 inch alloys, better to buy a steel rim of Linea which is 15 inch and can be used as spare tyre.

    Otherwise, if you want to retain 14 inch as spare tyre, then you will have to calculate the side wall thickness of the rubber tyre over it so that overall diameter of the tyre (rim + side wall) is same for all 5 tyres. Got it?

    @MODS- We don't even have 10minutes window for editing our posts. Please look into the same.

    @Dilip- e.g. in Polo's case, 15 inch alloy has 185/60R15 rubber but 14 inch spare tyre has 175/70R14.
