Dolphin, must say you have got the good design of alloys!

The alloys, tyres & the yellow color on calipers/rear drums are giving an amazing character to you Swift.

What about the handling, ride comfort with these wider tyres?

Any change in mileage with this setup?

Thanks Saurabh.

The handling is very good because of low profile and wider tyres. Ride comfort has reduced by about 65-70 percent. It's harsh (I am kind of used to it because I have been running on 17" for the past 2 years). Got to be careful on bad roads.

Not much difference in mileage; negligible (the alloys are not very heavy).

Hello All

A month back i bought used alloys for my swift but there were many scratches , dents . So decided to get the alloys painted , after having numerous discussions with Ace F355 aka Rohit i went for light gold colour which should be not much flashy but a decent gold colour . Went through some tbhp pages where i found one i20 with gold lenso wheels decided to go for that shade . Alloys were dropped at saraswati automobiles faridabad , he matched the colour to the perfection but thepaint job done was excellent . Paint has been done real smooth , one cannot even identify that the alloys has been painted . Yesterday we got the roof wrapped with glossy black tape, my friend Mani did it and its DIY . Many thanks to Rohit and Mani and here are some pics , hope you all like it .

Alloys Make : Prestige ( 17 inch - tyre profile : 215 45 ZR17 )

The previous colour of your alloys looked better. Anyway that wrap job on the roof is neat! Looks fab!

Nice job on the roof. Can you provide some more details on what was used on how you did it? Planning to get this done for my Wagon R.
When compared to pre black tape,does the car feel warmer now?

Hello procrj

Its Avery Dennison glossy wrap which has been done , any good car accessory shop can do the wrap on the roof as there is not much effort needed for roof wrap . Haven't found any problem till now related to heating as temp have dipped down to 32 max here in NCR but i don't think there will be any issue with excess heat .
