Mukesh, fab set of wheels. Also, I would want a ride in your swift. I would be changing the tires on my Swift soon and want to check out the XM1+.

Kab ? Kahan ?

Thank you tsk13 & Eddy.

Special thanks to white_vdi for helping in number plates and center console painting (mentioned in my garage also).

Got the rims from BK, Lajpat Nagar on 28th April. Posting it late. Sorry!

I saw that they actually look good when the car is being driven. I see many staring eyes everyday.

Eddy, would be happy to give you a ride in Swift.

Any day except tomorrow buddy.

Thanks Mukesh. They really look nice and in any case if you want to replace x2 hub with something else go to the number plate guy opposite BK Tyres for the custom hub sticker (the other shop - not the Michelin one). The name of the shop is Tarun Car (no board). He put up a Suzuki new style 'S' sticker on my friend's white Swift. Silver background with Mirror 'S', it was looking fabulous.

Thanks m4ugr8.

tsk13, I actually wanted to replace x2 hub. I asked for Suzuki Logo hub from Mr. Atul (BK), but he said that nobody pays for hub so he does not import them (US$ 2/- his import cost). I asked him if he can give me on extra payment but he haid only Honda logo hubs.

Tried putting Plati hubs but they were loose.

He himself suggested for the sticker logo but I was unsure how it will look, so I left it for later. After your recommendation, I am sure its gonna look good. Next time I go there, I will surely get this done. Thanks buddy.

MG.

Thanks esteem_lover. I have seen so many rims on the road but nothing as different as mine. Really happy with what i have got. Looks real good when the car is moving.

They look like 15 inchers.

I have similar 15" wheels on my car. A bit different though.
I picked these cause they are easy to maintain and looked better IMO.
