Guys,
Sorry for the delay, here comes the pics of the alloys and the car.

check out the last pic, i don't know why the disc and hub gets rusted like this. i am literally upset after seeing the same while washing my beauty.
planning to paint the hub on service.

The rusting of the discs should not be of much concern. As you keep using the front brakes over a period of time, you will notice the discs getting cleaned off the rust. As for the rear wheel hub a nice paint shoudl take care of it.

hi guys,
i thought of sharing you this information, last week i checked ZDi to check the tyre pressure for 185x70R14 and clicked the same for all the 185x70R14 owners of Swift and Dzire's

I hope we shall keep a point less as mentioned for Dzire in the below pic.

@thereal,thanks for the info
dzire has minor increase in weight compared to swift but doesn't that mean there will be change in tyre pressures in swift compared to the former.
btw,if anyone has ZXi,could you refer and let us know the pressure!!

That wont work bro, ZXI has a petrol engine and is much much lighter than the diesel counterpart. So you need higher pressure on the diesel engined swift DDIS.

yes dude, ZDi is slightly heavier that's the reason why keep 31F and 28R when fully loaded on driving alone i use to drive with 30F and 28R,which is less when compared to the mentioned psi for ZDi
I dont think ZXi pressures makes sense as they are calculated for the Petrol engine which is much lighter when compared to their diesel counter part.

With 195/60/R15 fitted I was advised to go for F-30 & R-29 for my Yokos. I have stuck to that from day one and ride is comfortable. FE in city drive with 40% AC is 16.2 kmpl.

Hi SOUM, Nice to hear from you agian, 195/60 section height is less than the 185x70. so it becomes tough to find the exact pressures which gives the perfect balance between ride quality and handling

Fortunately for 185x70R14 we have the data given by Maruti, for other sizes it lies on the drivers feel.after few trial's people stick to some setup.

Its good that SOUM found your his right setup.

I keep 30-F and 29-R when fully loaded, while i drive alone i reduce the pressure by 1 psi as it feels bummpy.

Thanks for the conformation, dude.
BTW, your alloys look great. What tyre make did you put on?

Thanks you SOUM,I have Bridgestone Potenza GIII on the alloys.
I personally would prefer Michelin XM1+.Due to availability issues by that time i had to go for GIII's.. but i am not actually regretting the selection except for the running noise.
