Default Look for quick recommendation on Swift wheel upgrade

Folks - I just took delivery of a bring red Swift Vxi (Non-ABS) and planning to upsize it to 185/70 R14 bridgestone potenzas G3 with OE alloys. The Maruti dealer quotes 3900 per tyre + 22k for OE alloys + balancing charges (~500 + weights if any) - 800/tyre for OE 165's = 38k. An outside bridgestone dealer quotes 3300 per tyre + 19.6k for OE alloys + balancing (~500 including weights if any) - 500/tyre for the OE 165's = 34.5k - so net, I save around 3.5k if I went with the Bridgestone dealer - Does this rate sound OK or will I get better pricing? If yes, where? Pls recommend.

Hi Airwind - I have recently (yesterday) purchased a Swift with the same specs as urs from Pratham, Bangalore. I have made a lot of enquiries with Bridgestone dealers in JC road. I was given a quote of 3700 per tyre for bridgestone potenza G3 , but these were 195/60/R15 and a buy back price of 750. Also there was a wide variety of alloys available for 17-18K. So I think your price is pretty ok but you can probably haggle a little more if you are going for 14" tyres and alloys.

Saw this townside, Ford GT inspired strips. Looked quite cool.



Edit - just realised the white is not visible. Its similar like the one on Red Swifts but the difference is the whole roof is not white. It has white strips. Ajmat why dont you try this on your Swift, will surely look damn cool.

Seen a red Swift with Ford GT stripes from quite some time. Not sure whether I'd posted it. Don't have it now.
