You can get 205/50 R16 ..
Please choose your rim size 14" or 15" or 16" as per your requirement..
14" for better comfort and as you go high inch handling grip, cornering, braking improves but comfor decreases..

Default correct size

The correct upsizes for swift are

195/65/R14
195/60/R15
205/55/R15
205/50/R16

chose any of these based on your needs.

I have 205/55/R15 on my car. its the best compromise between comfort, looks and performance.
