I was just wondering, if I wanted to fit 195/60 R15 tyres, are there any steel rims available in this size for the swift ? I know alloys are in plenty.

The Fusion has 195/60 R15 tyres, would this rim fit on the swift? Any other OE steel rim that would fit on the swift ?

Fusion has a 108 PCD.
Swift has a 100 PCD. You could use the steel rims from the toyota corolla.

Thanks Nitrous.

Would you know the specs of the corolla rims ? 6 or 6.5 J? I understand 6.5 is preferable for 195/60 R15.

Hey Gurus. Getting 15" lenso alloys this week.
What would be the ideal size ? 185/195 ? Also i don't want scrape the wheel wells with full load. as i do carry sometimes heavy luggage.
I aint spirited driver. So suggest me accordingly.
Also want to know is it possible to straight away fit my stock rims and rubbers to my uncle's 04 INDICA DLS ?

With 185 you will be 100% sure that it would never scrape the wheel. With 195, I have seen my ritz scraping once in my total drive of 600 kms. You just need to be careful in a curve which has a steep slope.

Hope this helps.

Depends on the overall profile of the tyre and not just 185/195..

195/60/R15 will not scrape even with full load. Nisarg, if you are not a spirited driver, I would suggest 195/60/R15 Yokohama A-Drives.

Hey Nisarg , catching up in this forum also.

for 15 inchers upsize for swift - the correct rubber would be 195 /60

and 205- 55 - These wont scrape the wheel arches and no problems.

I have seen 195/60 on my friends car which looks better than the skinny stocks provided .

205/55 -R15 i need to check I fee the Swift looks wild with 205/55 -R15 - but would compromise on FE & performance slightly

Is there any website or thread here that contains comprehensive info on the stock wheels/rim for indian cars ?

What I'm looking for is the usual tyre profile, PCD, number of bolts, rim width and offset info.

Hi praveen. that's the main reason i am setting up my mind to 195/60.
Lets see . Alloys are on the way to ahmedabad. I will get quotes tomorrow from Few yoko dealers. but in S-drive they dont have 195/60 size. they have ES100. 195/60.

Nisarg,

195/60 -R15

I saw on few posts - not available in S drives

Alternatives - A Drives : 3800-4000 Per tyre
Michelin Primacy LC- around 4800 per tyre

Let me know if you have done on other brands and costs

Agree that overall profile matters. But 185/195 is an important element for scraping because of the width. My Ritz has 195/60/R15 with A-Drives and they are simply superb.

Default Urgent advice needed !!!!

Hi Guys !

Need the expert advice on the Alloys + Rubber . I have finalised on the below three models

Alloys :

LENSO - PD01 - 25000 ( set of 5 )
LENSO -NXT - 23000 ( set of 5 )
KONIG - 19000 ( Only 4 available )

I have attached the pictures for all the above mentioned . Need your advice and choice on these .

Also regarding the Rubber :

Yokohama A drives - 3600 per piece ( 195 / 60 -R 15)
Maxxis -N35 - 3500 per piece ( 195 /60 -R15)

I need to come out of this confusion which combination to choose from the above shortlisted stuff ( alloys ?+ Rubber ? ) - Need some urgent choices / suggestions / expert advice on these .

Waiting for ur replies ....
