well it seems that the ride quality does drop with the 15" since the swift D suspension has been stiffened up.

For better ride you should go for 195/65-14 or 185/70-14. If you want the 15" then the best size is 195/60-15.

Thank you so much!!! I have been searching for exactly those words for the last 5 days. Good thing the car isn't here yet, else it would be sitting jacked up waiting for footwear

Cheers!

hey guyss i would like ot know what would be the recomended psi for the tyres of a Swift VDI.

And one more thing, does a low psi that what is reccomended would decrease the FE coniderably??? I mean one of my frnds didnt notice that the typre pressure f his car was low (the front one) and when he indeed noticed it he went for a fill up adn the reading showed he had currently a psi of 19 on one tyre and 22 on the next front tyre.

Would that have reduced his FE .He alomost drove with that for the duration of full tank of diesel..

No, not yet. Will be doing so in the future. Not in the near future though.

Hi,

The linea and the SX4 are supposed to debut with a 90 bhp version of the 1.3 DDIS engine in the swift. Am curious as to how this factory tuned verision will fare against the Pete enhanced Swift VDI.

Should be interesting.

You rotate it clockwise with a screw driver.

Suzuki have beefed up the suspension for the diesel varient and if tested the diesel handles a bit better than its petrol sibbling with a little more feel to the steering aswell.
But anyways the Swift has always handled well in corners and straightline speeds.
