you are right fountainheader, 205/50/r16 is close to the stock.
but how about the ride quality? because the profile is dropped to 50 won't the ride quality be jarring?

It will be, definitely.
I drove a friends swift with 55 profile on 15" rims with 205 section rubber and ride was pretty harsh. Expect worst in 50 profile.

I have 195/60-R15 in swift, ride quality is not that good, still somewhat acceptable.
The best upsize in swift (according to me) is 185/70-R14.

But those 15"/16"/17" rims keeps tempting us.

I'm running 175/60 R13 Yokohama A- 539's right now but i really want to put 14's on it...not that many killer rims to choose from in a 13" size. so all the help i could get would be great.
Will 14" be not an overkill for Alto ? There aren't too many sizes available in 14" that compare to your stock size. IMO, you should stick to 13".

The car is going for a port polish job sometime this month. i just want a nice 5 spoke rim and all the one's which i like are all 14" rims. so i dont mind fitting them. is it possible to get a 5.5j or 6j 14" rim.... will add all the oomph to the car so as to not let the 14"s be overkill

The car is looking ok, but if you can do some black treatment like the white NHC on this page then it'll look super cool.

Yup, I'm thinking of painting the front brake calipers & rear brake drums in black.

Hi,

I believe Four Seasons Auto at Tardeo are official dealers for OZ Racing & BBS. However, please recheck before taking the plunge as their name do not feature on the official OZ site atleast & I myself have had a bad experience with Four Seasons myself with regards to my OZ rims for my Swift.

Lovely alloys.

Are they 98pcd? And how much did you pay for them?
