    Hi All,

    It was from quite some time back I began looking for carbon fiber wheels. Where ever I travelled, I searched for them. But months of searching and looking for them turned out to be anti climax as I could not find a decent set of wheels for the car.
    But the time was approaching for me to change the wheels and tyres. So, I did not have much of choice and had to look for some other wheels and tyres. Then I came across these wheels Konig 17". They looked pretty good and since I wanted to stick to black wheels, I decided to put them on.
    Now, time for tyres. There was a lot of discussion whether to go for 215/45R17 or 205/40R17. After much debate and opinions, I finally decided that they should be 205/40R17. Now which tyres? Since I had Yokohama before, this time wanted something else. Friends suggested Kumho which I said NO.
    Finally got BF Goodrich g-force sport 205/40ZR17.
    Now for the pictures.

    Interesting. How much distance did you cover before changing and what is the damage?

    @Roy I did about 30k and usually I tend to change for all my cars around 30k. Coming to the damage 54k

    nw KN 45 n 7 is perfectly fully loaded car
    why not 205/45 ? 40 is too low for punto, drive too slowly on potholes n chk out tyre manufacturing date Bf Goodrich is all imported stuff u vl nt get ne warranty + tyre we get here in india is almost 2 3 yr old stuff n with 17 inch and low profile ,slowly it vl start bubbling in side wall as well as on surface of Tyre , i used bf, yoko ,pirelli ,Goodyear F1 but out of that yoko is really good cheap n cums with warranty, even i used 225/45 it is too heavy for punto n decries gripping level so much ,205/45 is best suitable size for punto with 7j alloys IMO

    Do not know about the future. But as of now, there are no signs of bumpy ride at all. I drove even on the muddy and stone laden paths of coffee estates at chikmagalur. It was a breeze. +1 to Aniket on this.
