IMO 195/60/15 is the size you want to go with to keep as close to stock size OD
Sorry your data seems to be incorrect. It is in fact a almost perfect upgrade.

Noop, I checked on the link you provided and calculated again, this is what I got :-

195/65/15 has dia of 634 mm,
165/80/14 dia 620 and
185/70/14 dia 615.
so comparison of 195/65/15 with stock L & V gives 2.26% diff and with stock Z 3.1 % diff. I still stand by 195/60/15 is best upgrade

Yup. In fact, NOT only is 185/65 R15 a great upgrade from stock, it is in fact the stock size in the new Swift Z variant.
I am not denying that 195/60 R15 is a great Swift upgrade as well. You get a good choice of Michelin/Bridgestone/Yoko tyres in that size.

Just spoke to the sales executive at Chowgule in Pune (Satara Road) from where I've booked my VDi (expected in Nov). Wanted the alloys from the ZDi & he says it would cost me Rs.5273 per alloy & for the tyres i would get about Rs.2000 ~ Rs.2500 off on whatever set i am buying.

Is the alloy price ok? Or is he quoting too high or should I get it done from outside. Please advise.

Are those the Suzuki OEM alloys available on the Z variants? Then, it ought to be costly. Often, the branded OEM alloys cost 10K each (approx). So, I think, we can call these good value.

But, I would have preferred the Lenso Samurai over this. Those will be almost the same price. And, the good thing is that, Maruti is not too fuzzy about wheel upgrades. So go aftermarket.

So I would be able to get the "Lenso Samurai" for the 185/65 R15 size then & is the tyre buyback price ok?

I am going to need four alloys & 5 tyres which is going to totally add upto (along with the exchange price of the tyres) 5273 * 4 + 2000 * 5 = Rs.31'000 which slowly takes it towards ZDi territory along with an ICE.

You can pick up the 15" or the 16" Lenso for the new Swift. The 16" alloys and tyres will be costly when compared to 15". But I think 16" suits the new Swift better.

Edit: The tyre buy back price quoted looks good. But bargain hard on the new tyres as well.

If you have a choice, stretch and get the ZDi. It is a much safer car and you get a lot of kit as well. Besides, the OEM music system is very nice.

I think for lenso you will not get alloys that are 15*6j , but you will get 15* 6.5j and higher , so will it be ok to put 185/65 R15 on 15/6.5 alloys, im not sure though, gurus can advise on this .

Cheers

I think the ideal upgrade for the new Swift is 195/60 R15 in 15". The tyres in stock ZXi/ ZDi size of 185/65 R15 is very hard to get. One would get far more options in 195/60 R15.

I don't know the exact width for Lenso alloys. A friend is running 195/55 R15 on Lenso Samurai SC01 for his i20. And the alloy lip is not protruding out. So 195 fits well on the Lenso. But I don't know the case with 185.

Someone had mentioned this incorrectly as +38 also. Not sure if +45 value is true for the redesigned Swifts or not.
It is +45 for the new swift also. It is embossed on the inner face of the alloys

Question re: Maruti Suzuki Swift : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

I have a 2006 Swift Lxi running on stock rims and tyres (JK Tornado).I want to upgrade my rims to 15" and my tyres.

1. What tyre size should I be looking at (Bridgestone/Yoko) if I want to retain handling but improve ride quality?
2. What colour alloys would look nice on a silver car ?

You can easily go for 195*60*15 , should not be a problem at all.
And for color , i guess dont keep any particular color in mind, visit a decent store where you have a good stock of alloys and choose the one that you find will look the best with your car.

You can check the lenso stuff they are really good .

Hope that helps
Cheers

I had to change my tyres urgently,hence I stuck to the original steel rims.Got Michelin Xm+ Energy in a 185/70 R14 profile which I guess are the specs of the OEM tyres of the old ZXi.
There is a definite reduction in tyre noise even at low speeds and I seem to be getting a better feel from the front of the car while turning into a corner.

What pressure should I run these tyres at ? 33 psi (as on the original JK Tornados )?

Am grateful for this wonderful thread !

You may safely vary the air pressure anywhere between 30-35 psi depending on how the ride suits you. I've run these at 30 psi on highways and 32-33 psi in the city, have had them for 28000 kms (1.5 years) now.
