The rears will be the stock wheel combo, or oversized. The front will be thinner/thicker and probably smaller, depending on the gearing and the amount of power, and traction required.

I thought the front tyres would be the wider ones to get traction considering the swift is FWD and the rear ones would be the thinner ones to reduce friction.

Hey khanak, in a front wheel drive situation most people prefer a smaller but chunkier front wheels... Smaller front wheels means there is a weight transfer on the front wheel giving better traction for the front wheel drives... But smaller the wheel more the chances of spinning em at launch hence chunkier. This is a cheap trick when the suspensions are stock however if the car has a drag suspension setup then equal diameter wheels can be used with skinny tyres in the rear to keep the unwanted drag from the rear minimum and well calculated meat at the fronts.

Thanks Kiran!! I had a camera with me but at times other people like Zak or Powerfreak were holding onto it! Most of these pictures were taken at the end of the 2nd day and by then you had already left for Pune!
