Great rims on the Swift, I think I should get the same for mine as well (I mean my swift)

The ride is a little rough, I have to be really careful with them as a single well placed pothole can burn me down by almost a 1000 quid a pop. So its kinda a street cruiser. Just show and slow kind of. Am planning on getting a extra set of some local 17" soon for highway use.
