My 2 bits - not that I am an expert, but how I would have gone about it.
The white alloys, or for that matter any colour, is just paint. Now when you speak of alloys, there are 2 parameters that define its looks - 1. Design and 2. Colour/Finish.
1. Design: Select the design and size that you want.
2. Colour/Finish: Now alloys come in 2-3 finishes - chrome plated, brushed finish and painted. Look up the Du Pont website (pretty helpful guys) and ask them which type of alloys can be painted. They will even help you locate the best place to paint your alloys. Accordingly select the finish of your alloy and get the colour of your choice painted on it.
Hope this helps.

Offset for Swift?
We always tak about upgrading/upsizing the wheels of our Swifts but along with getting the wheel size, tire size & PCD right; one must also get the offset (ET) of the weels right.
Can anyone share as to what is the original offset of the Swift rims & what should be the correct offset at the time of upsizing the wheels to 15" or 16" taking into account the width of the rim and size of tire?
