205/55-15 S drives would be the ideal 205 upsize for Swift.

Wouldn't these 205's make the steering heavy. People seem to be happy with 195's too.

it will definitely make the steering heavy. Ask me,my swift is on 215 and the steering is very heavy.

Stick to 195/60 R15 if looking for a 15" upgrade

Rockzer,

Check with Vikram_D who's had 205/55 15 on his Swift from Day One. He was mentioning something about a problem later-on.

Don't think 205 is very bad for swift, i have driven many cars with 205 profile tyres, and it's not heavy at all, the car has power steering,
Now if someone has butter soft fingers or likes the steering being butter soft it's okay to stick to 165 itself, but at high speed braking the car will go sideways instead of straight.

Folks,

As the tyre gets upgraded to higher size its profile reduces(Thickness ). This will lead to huge feedback on Indian roads. Also very bumpy ride. Not to mention lesser FE.

If going for the 205s, stick to 205/55s and not 205/60s. As per an office colleague (who has Nanking 205/60s), there is a very high chance of scraping the car body when on full lock. He also mentioned the tyres touching the upper part of the wheelwell when the car was loaded and on bumpy roads.

55s will have a harsher ride though! 195s are safer IMO.
