19". Oh My God. How does he ever manage the Indian roads. The ride would be as bad as in a rickshaw( 3 wheeled cycles) on an off-road/ bumpy track. Or Maybe worse.

As told by the gurus here, its a bad choice to go for rims above 16 inch at all. That too for Indian roads, its not at all advisable. I think 16 should be a good upgrade and 15" the best for indian road condition.

More over when the tyre profile gets lower, there will be harsh hits directly on alloys when you go up a pothole, which can result in a cracked alloy too.

I think 17s are perfect for the swift. ascetically look very sporty and will not give as harsh a ride as a R18 or a R19 (which is freken crazy).

Agreed but it depends on one opioin. You can compromise on the looks but for some looks do matter.

Like I said before one can go for any tyre size but it all depends on the user who can maitain it can have it.

Even i had my doubts over them being 18s, but the person who sent the pic was a reliable source confirmed theyre 19s, on close view they could be 19s since the wheel well is almost filled up and theres quite a bit of space to be covered even after 17s. If i ever get a close up pic we'll know for sure.

This picture reminds me of very old generation cars without air filled tires Or new generation Bullock Carts. Up sizing to 18 would be strict no no unless you have very high performance coupe.

@ notorious, do you really want your car to look like this ?


VENETIAN Blinds on the front of the car & wheels which eat up ALL the space. Can this car run shockers at all ??

This is for bravehearts !!!

Though he has got tyre sized all wrong i really liked the Alloys on this one.
@Auto - Any idea how much these alloys will be for?
