cyrus your friend can actually save good $$$ and get one of the best sets if he opts to get the honda city's stock fat fives!, they are enkei make and are direct fit, will just be fine. the last time i checked the ones exchanged from brand new city at the local alloy wheel shop was like 14000 for a set of 5! that did sound really decent to me.

try this. if he is adamant he can do the tyre upgrade later just as he wills.
hope this helps.

EDIT:and he can paint them what ever color he wills.

No No, he is not the kind to do such things. He is better off with a normal set of wheels from a normal shop!!!!

What i meant was instead of him buying old Honda City wheels and putting them on his brand new swift, he would be better off with brand new alloys from a reputed shop. Thats just his mentality....dont ask..
