Kudos to the wonderfull looking tyres, i wonder what L_B_M was thinking when he installed his tyres, he still has doubts if it hits his wheel arches.

just wondering what kind of odo error do you get with that kind of an upsize.

Sir my car tyre size is 215/40 17, but here we are talking 215/45 17 thats why I asked....

But later it was corrected to the same one I have...

Nice alloys m4ugr8. Very catchy design and not too common as yet. Looks fab on the swift. Saw the exact same design on an OHC which had come for the Chennai Drag meet on aug 12th and it looked kewl.

How much did they cost - tires and alloys? The alloy brand prestige - is it the same company that makes pressure cookers? pls pardon my ignorance.

P.S. Pls remove the red strips from the hood. Doesn't go with the clean look of the car. Just my opinion.

Sweet lookin' ride! All you need is dark tints and a nice pair of number plates to complete the look.

Thanks,Guys like i have said before i dont know why people say this but to be really frank the ride quality is acceptable infact good,u do feel potholes sometimes but that is ok,i rate it as

Positives:-Awesome Looks,Brilliant handling,Superb high speed cornering
Negatives:-A little harsh ride on rough roads but if u take slow no problems


I think the positives are far more ahead than the negetive points.
