Default Swift With 17"

After Months of scanning through this T&A Section,I finally decided to put 17" on my swift,so after taking delivery,i straight away headed to the wheel shop and got them fitted.Check Them Out!!!!!!,After hearing people say that ride quality would be very harsh,this and that,I simply went by LBM sirs advice and just shod them and i am very happy with the end result.

The Wheels Are 17" Prestige and tyres are 215/45R17 silverstone Tyres.



The Wheel.
