Default Hub/Bore Diameter doubt about Baleno Rims

A colleague of mine has a Baleno LXi with 165/80R13 tyres and 13" 5J Rims.
he's thinking about switching to 14", but doesnt want to invest in alloys - yet.

he has some 100pcd honda city rims, but the bore dia is not the same as the baleno's 54 , so he's not sure they can be swapped safely
Can they?

I'm not sure about the Honda rims but the Swift 14" rims work well on Baleno.

I was also using swift wheels till i changed over to alloys, you can get a new set of them very cheap. the tyre shops since lot of swift guys keep upgrading.

If the bore diameter of the Honda wheel is larger than that of the Baleno wheel, your friend can use a hub-centric (spigot-locating) ring & achieve a good fit.
You also need to check whether the offsets (ET) of the wheels are similar.

greenhorn the swift's stock rims are good enough.I don't find a reason why they wouldn't work on the baleno. Both the baleno and the swift are 100 PCD.
