Cheers !
These rims looked fantastic on Aza's white getz.
But, wrong choice for a silver lancer.
These rims would look awesome on a black or white lancer though.

Ya, actually he bought those rims for his white swift, but the ride was really harsh. So tried it on the lancer just for kicks and it looked OK, so he's running them on the lancer now..
I guess you can paint them in grey or black but the finish won't be very good.

Cheers!

BTW, How bad is the ride now? Its not as bad as i taught it will be on the lancer, So i was just wondering if i should get 16/17" on my Swift ?!

Cheers !
Vibhu,

It is not advisable to go above 15" rims and not wider than 195/60 for the Swift Any bigger rims and you will regret it for sure.

Why are most of the alloys predominantly white?
Any particular reason people don't go for black?
I went for a set of black 14" plati alloys and they seem to go pretty well with my blushing red i10.I'll be posting pics very soon.

I don't know about others but for me the reason is quite simple.

Maintaining the shine of the black alloys is quite time consuming and most people confuse the black alloys with the standard black OE rims without wheel caps, hence I prefer my alloys in any shade other than black.
