Correct the projectors are from some Peugeot model(read it on redlinegti.com).
Type 1 Esteem and M1000 share the same front shape with Subaru Justy, Chevrollet Sprint, Suzuki Swift(OLD).
I had asked for Swift FWD disc, people here are not familiar with Swifts and Esteem. If you came get me the diameter size of the disc.
Moreover 114.3 PCD disc come with four and five studs, the main reason for getting the diameter is that the disc should not be over size.

Just found some info on the below link, is this correct?

Size: x 114.3 mm Bolt Hole Pattern, 231.2 mm Outer Diameter, 12.75 mm Bolt Size

The pcd is 114.3 , 4 bolts. the diameter is 231.2 mm.
One thing if the people from where your buying these brake do not know about these vehicles than how are they selling brakes for esteem? or are you trying to find something with matching sepcs? be sure about the assembly as it has to accommodate the hub.
By the way what are they quoting for cross drilled disc?

In other countries, the esteem was called Suzuki Swift untill about 2001.
So he is checking if the disc specs are also same.

Hi all, I am planning for an optra steel rims for my esteem. Called a fellow bhpian who has done this and got the details of modification. Sourced wheels here in bangalore, read chor bazzar, for 250Rs each. Now i have to get 14" tryes. What is the max profile i can go for? Also can i use tubless tyre on steel rims? Is the steel rings [i dont know what it is called] available for 14"?.Will post the modifications involved after i get the work done.

I know, but he said that they do not know about even the rest of the car based on the platform so, better do the research, BY the way following are also the car based on the first and second generation swift/esteem.
Suzuki Forsa, Suzuki Jazz, Chevrolet Swift, Chevrolet Sprint and Sprint Metro, Geo and Chevrolet Metro, Pontiac Firefly, Maruti 1000, Holden Barina and Subaru Justy.
So check for the sepcs for these too, they may be same as the esteem.

Upsize options for Esteem on 14"s...

185/60 - Would suggest that you stick to this size 'cause I've heard of people complain that 195/55 scrapes the inner wall. Ride quality will also take a hit.

I don't think you would have any issues in fitting tubeless tyres if the rims aren't bent.

Hi! i'm new here! i own a 95 type 1 esteem. I did some diy mods to the interiors! I installed some led's. The connections were quiet simple, 18 LED's connected in parallel with a 560Ohm resistor each. the power supple has been taken from the cig lighter, Tell me what you guys think!

looks awesome, i would suggest you to open up the speedo console and remove the green rubber cap on the bulbs, its gives an oragne yellow effect, which makes the speedo very bright.
I am sure you must be facing the dull speedo problem
