Default Tyre upgrade for Swift VXi

[SIZE=2]I am planning to buy a Swift VXi and would like to know abt. the tyre and wheel upgrade. I am planning for a 195/60 R 15 wheels. Can anyone let me know the dealers in Chennai wherein i can get HR/OZ alloys and Michlien/Pirelli tyres. Also is this a correct wheel upgrade for the swift.[/SIZE]

195/50R15 would seem more like it as 195/60R15 would screw up your suspension.
Shouldn't this be in tyre section?

195/60 R 15 or 185/65 R 15 seems like the right upgrade options for 15" alloys...they will keed the overall diameter almost the same compared tothe stock 165/80 R 14s...
lamborghini...why would you believe a higher profile (195/60 compared to 195/50) would screw the suspension and not the othe way round?? A higher profile will provide additional cushioning and hence imprive the life of suspension...!!

Rajesh, try this website if you want to compare different sizes for your swift ..
