Nice pic there flyin very low butttt i would advise you not to do it on stock tyres, its very very risky. Infact the first thing i did was change to better rubber after taking delivery, i thought the Swift wont go above 160, i know now i was wrong.

Well whats your budget? You can go for 195/65/14 on stock rims or alloys or if you want to upsize you can go in for 196/60/15

Tyres Michelins are very good.

hey busa ive driven my swift at that speed when it was on stock rubber but never experienced any drift! i am currently on 195s with 15"ers and it feels much grippier after the upgrade! i dint want to go for anything wider as it makes the car feel much heavier!

I would believe it; however i cant understand why?
life is much more precious than a 175 reading on a swift vdi.

FVL - Yes Saifee offers a good deal, just bargain a bit though.

Speedomania - I have not driven too much on 165's, first impression i knew they are out of grip for hard cornering.
