Even I felt it could be that the PCD was wrong.

But changing alloys so fast. Its like changing a puncher ;-)

Like the second one more.

Very true.

The transformation is from sober to stunner.

Absolutely love the design

Please learn what PCD actually is.
Wheel sizing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

How can you put a different pdc wheel ?
the center bore diameter is more for the alloy. does this make a difference in swift?

I have put the right PCD alloys. It's 100 for the Swift.

Most of the alloys available in the market have a bigger center bore as compared to your car's wheel hub. I don't know whether it would make
a difference in Swift or not, but it may result in vibrations between the speeds 90-120 KMH.
As mentioned in this forum in the thread about hub centric rings that I have referred in my previous post, some folks have rid the
vibrations problem by balancing their wheels. Not wanting to take the risk, I have used hub centric rings. I tested upto speeds of 160 KMH and no vibrations at all.

@anil , heres another view



@para, the ride handling has improved, but i should say the initial pickup has reduced a tiny bit. Guess its due to the increase in the alloy weight. I'm still in the process of test driving as its just a week since they are installed.

cheers

@regnex - a full front view of the new alloys (a side view of the car) would be much better. Nevertheless the new wheels do look good.

After 3 whole weeks of scrummaging the market for my brother in law's swift, we finally managed to find IDENTICAL Lenso Samurai replicas (they aren't available in 14 inches)
Here goes.
