Audiophile,

NEAT looking set of rims, bro. Very classy. Give the ikon a slightly menacing look, like you're about to step out and bust a cap in someone's ***!!

16s, huh? You must have gone really low on the profile? The tread pattern looks like an S-drive... did you go 195/50 or 205/50 by any chance?

AVA wheels in Hyper Black.

@ghostrider, first of all, thnx for those great comments. Its current running on 205/40/R16. No company is making 195 on 16 inchers.

As for S-drives they don't make a 40 profile in 16 inchers.

Hey Munish, thnx man, ride quality on 40 profile feels much better than the 50 profile I was running earlier.

Believe me it only looks bumpy. Not sure if the nitrogen in there is doing all the good work.

Yeah, but the 40 profile scares me on these Bangalore roads.

Im not having any issues with the wheels, as for the ride quality.....yes its a bit hard compared to the stock 13-14" rims.

Offset is +40 and it a 7J wheel

no major mods, just 4mm horizontal spacers in the front wheels so that they don't come in contact with the shocks.

Besides that, the back seat can have 3 ppl sitting and no issues.

As for power....my 1.6 pulls it like a baby on its back.

Hey iraghava---when you say earlier ones, are you talking about the Lenso SHU or the hyper black AVA wheels?

Thanks, PatienceWins. I've got a Lenso SHUs on the Ikon which are quasi-multispoke, so wanted a clean 5-spoke design for the swift.
The good thing about a 4- or a 5-spoke design is that it makes the rims much easier to clean. The Swift rims get cleaned ALL the way to the inside of the wheel, which isn't possible in the Ikon without a semi-high pressure hose.
