    @sivakumar_nm, How much did the 15" Steel Rims and Wheel caps costed you and where did you buy them from (99rpm) ? My punto's (2012 Dynamic MJD) tyres are due for upgrade (at 28K now, they were due at 21K itself, but most of the drive is with-in city so postponed). Also, post upgrade to 195/65 R15, has the steering become heavy ? What is the effect on GC (increased / decreased) and any effect on the FE and 1st gear acceleration ?

    Hello

    I have upgraded to 195/65 R15, ended up with Yokohama Earth-1. I am very much happy about this upgrade. GC has increased atleast 9 mm and also feel good while driving, no need to worry about any pumps, no effect on the FE. I am feeling steering comfort after the upgrade.

    Steel Rim cost Rs 1050 per wheel
    Wheel cap Rs 370- per piece (go for this 59064491 active which is new similar type to Linea alloy wheel)
    Delivery charges - ~Rs 400

    @sivakumar_nm please post some pics. 1050/- per wheel is a good deal! Did you get them oem or used?

    @sivakumar_nm these look almost exactly like the linea alloys. Linea OEM alloys look better than the Punto OEM alloys on the Punto IMHO. Nice setup!
    Has the NVH reduced with the Yokos?
