Its an Incorrect upsize which reduces the GC of the Swift but interestingly doesn't foul anywhere.
Its always better to get the correct upsize rather than just judging it by the sidewall rubber.

There's no Goodyear Potenza. It should be Bridgestone Potenza GIII or RE88

Hi Mathew, Good choice for the alloys. Nice photo. Any updates on the FE after the change from stock rims and tyres to alloys and broad tyres ?

Is there any reason to put your friend's car picture? This thread is for your car's alloy.

Alloys: League 14"
Tyres: Stock as of now, will upsize at 10K
