Yes - Lenso surely comes in 14" size...Yes same designs come in different sizes, as for the crack - I don't think you'd get a replacement, as most of these "Imported" rims do not carry warranty

Cheers

That is the ES 100 Yoko pattern. Nice tyre - using it on my Octavia.

The tyres perform great as far as I can tell, but then I am no expert on the subject. The braking & cornering is a marked improvement over the stock NCT5's that my car was running earlier. But I do believe these are all in all great tyres for everyday as well as for enthusiastic driving.

Hope that helps

Cheers

I am expecting my Swift Vdi delivery by the end of this month and would be going in for the 15" alloys . My problem is with selection of tyres. I agree 195/60 R15 is the best option, but i would also like to know how the 205/60 R15 fits?

205/60/15 is a wrong upsize and will foul with the wheel arches on full lock, you are better sticking to 205/55/15 if you want 205s else 195/60/15 is the best upsize for the Swift.

Default Alloy wheels for Swift VDI

Hi,

I am seriously considering Swift VDI and plan to get alloy wheels for the same at the day of delivery itself.

Please suggest good options (showroom or outside?) and good brands for the same. What would be the approximate cost? What will be the benefit for trading in the original steel rims?

regards,
Sreenidhi.
Bangalore
