    You can check this post or this thread for more information on hub centric rings.
    A new spanner was required in my case as well. :)

    Nice set of alloys and as Linear has posted you should have upgraded to 15" - That would've given a macho look. In fact 16" would look even nicer, Do they have other sizes apart from 14"?

    I wanted to upsize the alloys/tyres, but my budget was restricted to under 20k. :-(

    Nice Alloys indeed! But I have one query OEM alloys have only 4 holes, your alloys seem to have 8. Is it a multi-pcd alloy? Can you provide its other pcd value...
  6. It will be 98+100 PCD combination.

    @royj Please clarify which component bears the weight of the vehicle. lug nuts or the hub?
    (especially in fiat vehicles)

    Irrespective of the manufacturer, it has to be the hub. The lug nuts are not designed for that.
  9. Nice set of alloys you have got,btw you should have gone for 15 inchers.

    Would've loved to.....but that also means changing all the tyres/wheels...including the spare. My budget would've sky rocketed :eek:

    Just spoke to Mr. Mufi of Saiffe tyres mumbai. He has 14" and 15" in 98 PCD, He is also willing to ship out of Maharashtra. I asked him to check abot 16" and 17" wheels in 98 PCD, to which he said he would get back to me.

    Cheers.
