Here is what it will be/look like

185/70 R 14:

Looks almost the same as stock tyre; with 14 inch rims you will see more tyre and less rims. Maruti suggests this upsize.

195/60 R 15:

Side view- No Change- however you will see more rim and less tyre.
Front View- No Change- Standing in front of your car you will not notice much of a difference.
Back view- Looks good with wide tyres; if you don't have mudflaps the tyre looks huge.

This is the best upgrade- I have it on my swift have done 6K KM on it and it feels good. On Indian roads you need to have a 60 sidewall atleast anything thinner and you may get the feeling you are riding on your rims on bad roads.

205/55 R 15:

If looks is what you want go for this upgrade.

Side view- Thin tyres and more rim size looks good.
Front view- Tyres will protrude out; just what everyone wants.
Back view- I think will look killer with that width.

However- I'm sure you will notice a drop in the peppiness of your engie simply because you are touching more ground and not to mention bad road and you need to be reallllllllly care... full.


as long as you change the stock tyres and upgrade the size your car will look better.

You are right about 16 inchers. 205/50 is correct in 16".
105/60 is correct size in 15 inchers.

No. The Samurais are not available in White. They come only in 3 colors - Grey, Bluish Black and Bronze.

You can check the alloys by car_crazy1400 for white rims

Hi Adi,
Not in the SC-01 range. Samurais are available only in 17" in the following design.

Hey Anil, trust me. I can take you to atleast 5 accessories shops here and show you the original White Lenso SC 01, 15" inches. Last I checked was Auto Shop in Kormangala and Torque in Indiranagar last week. Both quoted me 26.5K for the set of 5. I have a white swift and I always have an eye for white alloys always.

Oh great! Was not aware of the availability in white. Atleast none of the dealers had it in Chennai. In fact it was very tough to source 5 alloys of the SC-01. Somehow managed it in the end.

And yes even I paid 26.5k for a set of 5

205/60 is correct size in 15 inchers.
I am slightly confused here. Has anyone used 205/60 R15 in a Swift? Most of the swift I see here run on 195/60 or 205/55 R15. Never seen 205/60 15" in a Swift. Is it ok to go for this size? Can anyone please shed some light on this.

I stand corrected.
The correct upsize for swift would be 205/55 R15.
I calculated the difference using a tyre size calculator.
Maybe I did something wrong in putting the values.
