19 in. wheels for Grande Punto Abarth
« on: May 31, 2010, 05:49:04 pm »
Greetings. Can 19 in. wheels, in particular, 215/35 R19 fit in the Grande Punto Abarth? I mean, can they fit easily without making contact with the inner and outer cover that surrounds them?

    why .... just why.... lol :S it would look STUPID ...

    my guess is that it would fit and only just if its a stock AGP .... if its lowered then not a chance.

    To big you would ruin the handling, ok if you are after a show car.

    If your after a show car then yeah id agree with the above but you REALLY REALLY will want to change them back as soon as you've done a few miles on them.

    Vectra's are horrible   ;D

    My Spider and 159ti both had 19's on didn't ride that bad (not as bad as the 500) i think its more down to how the car is set up these cars were designed with 19's in mind so were ok.
     
    If you really wanted to put 19's on your punto then i would also consider getting the suspension revamped/adjusted to suit  ;)
