Check out alloys made by a company called Oxigin - they make some pretty bizarre designs (many of them are numerous nultispoke) that look nice on a Punto.

    Well, today I decided to test if the wheels fit ok. They do - time to order the tyres!

    And they're surely going to be a PAIn to keep clean?

    look nice though. One thing I always liked about the Punto (fiat or abarth) is teh fact the wheels always tried to get the most spokes possible on the wheel.

    I have no idea, wasn't mine - it's a hydraulic thing with adjustable fitting to place under the car - I did however place a rag in between just to make sure I don't scratch the underside. As for the spokes - yeah, keeping them clean will be a bit of an issue but now that I've seen how wheels turned out live, I'm happy with the decision!

    They look fine. Also by the look of it you can probably get away with a 'lazy' clean by just wiping the spokes if you're in a rush, same as the standard wheels. The backing colour won't show the dirt to much. Good choice.
