Both the sets look amazing !!
Must say that's a big upgrade from R14 & R15 to R17s. Can you please share how much the ride quality deteriorated and the stability/grip/handling increased on both the cars ?

The ride quality has hardly deteriorated on either car.

The Honda certainly has increased ground feedback but barely cognizable without a minute comparison. Steering is now very direct and feel is drastically improved without the excessive lightness of the stock setup. Overall sound level has increased. Since the traction has improved substantially, one gets a feeling that the suspension setup is soft and prone to body roll as curves can easily be taken at much higher speeds with complete confidence and zero "wiggling".

The Ford had a somewhat Cadillac like feel of an overly soft suspension (like riding on springs with very weak damping) which is corrected to a small extent. It is still too soft and does not provide the expected stiffness of the short sidewall (96.75mm). As a benefit, it inspires greater confidence that the setup can operate without resulting in damaged / broken rims. Steering precision is better. Jerkiness of the transmission (Automatic) when driving off from standstill is substantially improved. The front air dam that would scrape on parking ramps is now well clear of any contact. The Giti tyres do not fully satisfy and leaves one desirous of more, though at this price point they far outperform what one expects from a low cost tyre.

In both cars, braking is substantially improved and affords a lot more pedal pressure before any slipping / ABS kicking in. There is no noticeable onset of poor handling due to higher Center of mass, if anything the cars can be thrown around with tremendous improvement in confidence and road holding compared to stock.

On the whole I find that the said tyre sizes are offering if not the best, but at least a very good mix of both worlds, performance as well as comfort. Likely the reason that ride quality is still very good is that the sidewalls still have a fair bit of rubber due to the dia being oversized compared to typical plus sizing keeping the same dia.

That was one awesome looking set of alloys on Ford Aspire, The wheels completely changed the character of car.

I was doing some research on alloy wheels which would look good on Hyundai Creta and in the process was able to contact ASW . He send me an excel with very good looking set of alloys from EVO, GTR, Advanti, AVA for which most of them are with PCD 114.3 - Check this excel sheet.

The alloy wheels sheets are attached with this post

dont have the car anymore. But All i can tell you is that I have run 205/45/R16 on the same care for more than a year with no issues. just that you will need to make 8mm spacer plates for your front wheels, so that the tyres dont rub on the inner arch. My profile has pics with the 16" wheels as well.

Can I know the alloy wheel offset and width?

My 19 Months old Toyota ETIOS GD (Diesel) was craving for a Set of Alloys since a long time. However, since this car is mainly driver by my chauffeur, I did not intend to shell out the chips for a New Set of Alloys.

Kept my cool and was patient to find this Set of 4 - 15 Inchers Alloys of the 1st Generation Toyota Corolla (100 PCD 4 Holes) which was in an immaculate condition. Got them painted a shade lighter than Gunmetal Grey and fitted them to the ETIOS. Sharing some pics :

Looks very proportionate with a nice look.

I have been looking out for the same alloys for my Swift (same 4x100 PCD) but unable to find one in Delhi or nearby areas.

My baby with stock Eneki Rims painted them Matte Black. This is the very first modification on my very first car.
