Zenopio,

Dude... those are, without a doubt, the BEST alloys I've ever seen on a Swift.
I just got 15s on my new Swift Diesel (post with pics below) and I like them, but yours are a thing of beauty. Great choice, man. Cheers. cheers:

Btw... if you haven't already gotten the Suzuki 'S' monograms, almost any alloy/tyre shop will have them. You could go back to the guy you got your rims from and ask for them, or stop in at any other alloy-tyre guy and ask for them. They cost around 50 bucks a pop.
I've got mine, but the center hubs on the alloys are rounded, so the monograms won't stick properly. I need to change the center hubs to flat ones and then get the monograms stuck on.

yeah nice looking set but I bet your ride quality is worse though you may feel no change. The tyres are so skinny like bicycle tyres and beware you have to drive very carefully.

@zaks, thnx buddy...I will surely take the advice of driving carefully. The tyres are 40 profile and hence look like bicycle tyres.

@Audiophile and Ghostrider : Nice choice of alloys on your respective Ikons.
@Audiophile, did the earlier set of rims foul with the wheel arches, and that made you decide to change them?

Thanks benbsb29.

Incidentally, Audiophile had the same set of alloys (Lenso SHU 15"). Only difference he had them in white, mine are hyper silver. He had them for a couple of months (I think?) before selling them in the classifieds section and getting the 16s he has now.

I searched and searched for a set that I liked before I found these Lensos. I think I might have overpaid by a couple of grand for the set, but c'est la vie.

@benbsb29: the 17inchers defenately fouled the wheels arches and needed major spacers mods.

The 15 inchers however were running with a 195/50 profile, with no issues at all.

As for my new 16 inchers running with a 205/40 profile, have no issues at all.
