ripper, so is your swift running a DTE ECU ?

I thought it had the PSI tuning box?

No, I was running the PSI box. Now using the Diesel Inside Remap. No tuning box. DTE was put there just for comparison

I am also looking for Advans or similar range tires of size 205/55 R15 for my Swift. Any other suggestions?
I have heard that the Advans ware out very fast

Get the Michelin PP2's, they're your next best options.

good to see you Khusanth here ..

And congrats for your new Swift





won't be 205/55 R 15 overkill for swift ?? i think 195/55 are best suited !!

i think you meant 195/60, which is the closest you can get to stock OD
195/65 would be ideal, but i dont know of any good brands in that size

195/55 would make an even bigger speedo error than 195/60, which itself is slightly off

here am not talking about speedo error but the tyre size which will be best suited for small cars like swift...

195/65 R 15 i won't recommend as the car is lowered and it might touch the fenders if it is loaded with passegers or heavy luggage

205 /55 will also affect fuel economy and also the vehicle's initial and top end !! and this size will make the steering wheel too heavy more than 195/55 !!

Some people need Fuel Economy so they keep it 165/80/14 (Stock)
Some need a bit more comfort so they too keep it stock.

Some need a bit more grip they do 185/70/14

Some need looks + Grip the upsize to 15/16/17 even.
Ride goes out the window and you bottom out most of the time.

I personally feel 195/60/14 are enough for a Stock swift again 195 AD07 might be over kill for some. (EDIT: my next planned upgrade)

There is no easy or final answer.
It all depends on how you drive and what your priorities are.

sir please read my post carefully

am talking about 195/55 R 15 and not 14 inch !!

If 14 inch 185 /60 is the best bet !!

I guess we need to use these tyres before posting such statements.

I had 195/60/R15 Yokohama A-Drives for around 8k kms before I moved on to Michelin PP2 205/55/R15. The steering wheel at the start was a bit heavy, but after the "run-in" period of the tyres, its just perfect. Almost like it was with the A-Drives. But maybe compared to the stock 185/165 tyres, you might feel it a bit heavier.

And never cared to check FE before/after nor will do

dude i have tested and only then i commented ..

and if you can , try fitting 195/60 back on your ride and you will know , its only that you got used to driving with 205/55 R 15...

and again i said IMHO 195/55 is best tyre for swift .. but you can fit anything you like no need to start a war man !!!

Best upsize for swift in 15" 195/60-15 205/60-15
and in 16" 195/55-16 205/55-16

Abhi i think 205/60/15 and 205/55/16 both will touch the inner wall on pot holes or with full load.

Ideal would be 195/60/16 and 205/50/16 but will say stick to 15" for comfort as compared to 16

Sir he is right
how many swifts have you driven with upsize tyres
there is a lot to consider rather than goin down on profile for no reason.
195\55R15 is a correct upsize for getz,so it doesnot mean its correct for swift too.

195\60R15 or 205\55 R15 but 205 would be a slight overkill
