alloys for swift

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I am new in this Forum, just joined to ask a little in this thread. I have purchased a swift vdi & want to change to alloys. I have selected a set of 4 alloys of 15" (7" broad) & they are suggesting to fit VICTRA tire 195/55 R15. Will this be the right size? Moreover I could not follow the tire calculation showed by SGIITK

Can you Show a calculation on how 195/60 R15 is the best upsize for Swift?

What could be the effect on

1. Ride and handling?

2. Mileage

3. Any danger to suspension ?

4. Steering


for R15  rims ( alloys )  what shd be the exact measures? if you can suggest a perfect combination of alloy with tyres will be appreciated


I heard that 185/70 is the best upsize , rather safest ( max 20mm upsize than the stock is permissible )


Moreever does it have any implication on Warranty etc

( Ther is a Swift 1.5l SR4 Pic posted in one thread with 17' alloy with 205/40 rubber ... looks cool.)




Pls clarify fast

Tire Calculator Notes:

  • Tire diameter can vary slightly for each tire model. The listed diameters are from calculations based on the tire size.

  • When changing tire sizes, we recommend staying within 3% of the diameter/height of the original tire. Any more than this and you face the risk of brake failure.

  • This tire calculator is for information purposes only and we do not guarantee fitment based on this calculator alone.

Here both 185/70 r14 and 195/60 r15 are looking the safest upsize

195/60 will look cool than the 185/70:- this will be perfect +1 upsize

where 185/70 comes with ZXI hence 0 upsize.


Any expert views on this?
