maddy79, mine is a 2012 car, and a year after purchase I swapped the stock high GC suspension with Bilstein B6, http://www.teamfiat.com/threads/journey-with-my-fiat-grande-punto-sports-90hp-ex-red.14962/ linky of the same. The thing is the original punto, 2009 version had immaculately balanced suspension, but given our roads/no roads at times, it did cause problems for masses with underbody scraping. Hence that updated higher GC kit suspension from Fiat on post 2012 cars. But, this came with its own set of problems of body roll, but masses wont notice it unless driven in spirited corners. My car with Bilstein B6 probably had around 160mm GC on stock wheels & tyres(195/60-R15), and little help from the 205/55-R16 wheels & tyres which help raised the clearance to 170mm~ish, it was all good, but these definately scraped the plastic cladding and arches in the front & rear!. Even the 195/65-R15 end up scrapping on my suspension under heavy duty!. The car is built like a tank so one might not hear the scrapping inside the cabin, but then you check them arches later, the scrapes are evident. now my second set I dint have the budget to go for 205/55-R16, but I still needed the GC help from wheels/tyres, so went in for 195/65-R15 michelin primacy 3st. These sure are good tyres, but the increased side wall height had negated the spirited driving I used to enjoy on the previous lower side wall profile tyres. Hence I am looking for good options for the 195/55-R16 tyres, and as of now only three reputed brands offer this, goodyear, bridgestone and apollo. Premium brands Michelins, yokos, contis, pirellis still dont offer tyres in this size.
