The OZ Rim [Grand Tourismo GT 17"] - Extra would cost me 18/- K + Tyre [Dunlop SP Sport Max] 7/- K at least. 25/- K to put in for a product that may or may not be used, is a little too much for me to spend. I could find some better use for it;;; Sorry !

How the hell did you manage to burst your tyre?? And yeah, a 17"er cannot fit in the spare wheel well of the Swift.

I think the pressure gauge at the place where i filled Nitrogen had gone bust and my tyre was seriously overinflated. There was also a huge gash on the sidewall when I inspected it later.
Have since changed over to PP2s; I'm told they have harder sidewalls. Overall a far better tyre than the PP1.

As regarding the 17" on a swift. Say you have a set of 4 and get a flat. What do you do? You don't have a stock spare 17". You can't fit just ONE undersized wheel. So basically, I think it makes all the more sense to buy a set of 5 when you upsize. If you maintain stock size, then 4 alloys shouldn't be an issue unless you damage one rim; then you need 4 new ones!
What say Bhagwan ji?

Seems like impact damage, did you hit a pothole or stone at speed by any chance?

Problem is Vikram, you can't fit a 17"er into the wheel well so what options do you when you have a flat? You can't go back home to fit the 17". So you'll have to make do with the 14" stock & bear with it till you get to a tyre shop. And for a lot of rims (not all though) single pieces are available from the bigger dealers/distributors. But in some cases you can get stuck if you cannot find one piece only.

But I don't see that problem happening with the OZ's B's got.

Sir,

I have done a 'mif-fi' install in my car;

A hi-fi install would include amplifiers from Brax / Audison 'Thesis' / Steg 'Master Stroke' & components from Dynaudio [esotar] / Focal [utopia be] / Morel / Venture Audio [my dream - some day] !!!! The HU would be Eclipse 7200.
This would be a 7 to 10 lac install at least.

Actually, I enjoy doing this. if anyone wants to do a mid fi / hi fi install please do call on me. I will get it done for you - no charge - I just like to do it. It is the thrill of getting the gear , installing it, setting it up etc. this is what makes me happy !!!!
If I could afford better cars, trust me, I would buy them & install the gear in that......

The biggest differance is the price;;;



To get serious, some of the differances are :-

Body coloured handles
Body coloured rear view mirrors
Front & Rear windows - automatic
Fog Lights
Central Locking

All the changes are mostly cosmetic. The engine is the same.

Two more differences to add to the above. No Rev counter in the Lxi/Ldi Meter console, the Vxi/Vdi has it though. The A and B pillars of the LXi/Ldi are body-coloured whereas the Vxi/Vdi has blacked-out vinyl A & B pillars.

Cheers
