Which panel says 32 in front and 29 in rear? The OEM recommendation is 33 in all I guess.
I've till now kept 32 in front and 30 in rear. Even 34 in front and 32 in rear gives me almost the same kind of comfort as every small pothole can be felt in a swift no matter how much one varies between 30-34, at least that's how my experience with XM1+ 185s has been so far.
By the way Jitesh at BK Tyres had recommended 30 in all.

When you open the driver door, just look at the hook like thing where the door latches itself to, scan down on the line to find that sticker.

Its 32 front/29 rear,I am pretty sure of, unless Dzire and Swift have different recommendation. That's the manufacturer's recommendation.

If you face too much of bad roads, rocky surfaces, you better stay away from Michelin ( as a precautionary measure). You can consider Yoko or BridgeStone. BS being harder than Yoko. BS has a little harsher ride compared to Yoko. Choose b/w these two. All the best in your tyre hunt
How about the Continental ones. Nikhil has been advocating those for many a swift and other vehicles.

Well, if Nikhil is advocating Conti, you can go ahead! Words from the tire dealer himself!

Obviously there will be difference in the recommended psi. The psi I mentioned is only for 185 section.

yet to do some serious driving to note down differences but my ride sure looks good now

Anyways my question to the experts out here is, what would be the correct air pressure to be maintained for this tyre profile?

thanks
could anyone help me out?

Re. the correct tyre pressure for 185/60 R14s on Swift, Premji Tyres who installed my Yoko A-drives categorically said "30 in all tyres". Since it's early days yet am sticking with this. I used to go 33 in all four on my stock JK Tornados till the very end when I started keeping it at 30 since the ride was too hard otherwise.

@deathwalkr, bumping is not allowed dude!

I checked this while cleaning some hard to reach parts of my car, and (at least in my 2006 Vxi) the numbers don't match what you so confidently proclaim.

Recommended tyre size and psi:

165/80 R14: Front 33, Rear 33
185/70 R14: Front 29, Rear 29

That's settled then?!

It varies, don't know the reason but it does. e.g. my dad's swift lxi says 35 in front & 33 in rear. I can check mine (swift ldi) too but I'm sure it'd be a different recommendation.

Can anyone clarify why this variation exists?

Hi

There is difference in maintaining recommended Psi for swift diesel and petrol .

Since diesel engine is heavier ... I own a swift Vdi .

Recommended Psi for front is 36 and for rear is 33 .

I maintain 35 for front while 32 for rear .

And for swift petrol its 33 for front i think and 30 for rear ..

And also all these are recommended for full weight laden .

@Safari_Beast: Of course there had to be a variation between Petrol & Diesel . However, the variation is also found between different petrol variants.
