uhm no.....
when i bought my wheels the had this size:


-2x 215/40/16
-2x 205/45/16


215 is way 2 big, 205 should fit, and the profile was good.


thats why i set them on the back of my punto.


i allready did a order for the same size as the front, so i can go lower a the back

Re: my punto mk2b

205 is too wide for a punto
Not enough weight to .make tyres grip.....

195 is used along with stock 185

It's probably to do with the offset of the wheels.

Looking good, like the red wheels.


I had 8j wheels with 20mm spacers all round and was lowered 50mm. Tyres were 175/50/15s so had a bit of stretch to keep the tyre tread inside the arch.

Re: my punto mk2b


so is sold my red wheels... and bought a nice set of black 16" stilo wheels!
the fit perfect. (with 3 mm spacers on the back)



also removed the coilover rings on the back, so the car is lower


also busy with alfa 147 seats! fitted the front... the back will follow soon, need some modification
