Consider Michelin,MRF zv2k,And apollo accelere...

Avoid JK's,Bridgestone and Goodyear...They are noisy...

Idealy What company has provided you is the best...Since you want to choose an alloy for you as well,from my perspective a 15 inch alloy is good to fit in...

Ideal upsize would be- 195/60/R15

And just in case you stick to stocks -185/70/R14

Do have a look at my vast collection of "Hottest Indian Cars with Alloys"[Album]

which also has couple of Swift pics,Do let me know if it really helped you in any way[The Album]

Hi

185/70R14 is the ideak size for swift vdi

195 makes sense when u go for 195/60R15 in 15 inch

Energy XM1+
MICHELIN Energy XM1+ offers more value for money: it lasts 25% longer1 and saves fuel.
Dimension Load index Speed index Specification Price
185/70R14 88 H   4100

I have used most of the brand Like Mrf,ceat,bridgestone,good year, apollo on my cars

Most of them i was dissapointed with

The only one i have not used are Michelin which have quite a good reputation

I am planning to buy them today for my Fiesta today

Size 185/60 R15

Price Rs 4500 per tyre

Good choice of tyres...

Even S drives are good but the wear and tear is more and they look older sooner than you can expect...[besides not meant for indian roads]

Do post your pics once you get hold of them...

But i guess price quote is on towards the higher side considering 3500 for a tyre size 175/70 R15 [hope thats the size for the OHC] which a friend of mine purchased a week back...

Recently I bought a set of Pirelli p4000 tyres for my honda city zx 14". Unfortunately I do not see anyone mentioning this brand in any post on tyres...

...did I do a mistake?

No buddy you are perhaps on the top of the list...

We are average users,

They are as good as Michelins,or i would say michelins are close to Pirellis...

Can you mention for how much did you get hold of them...?

Stick with 14inch size 5.5j and tyre 185/70. If you upsize more ud get wrong speedometer, may affect fuel average & Suspension

Hi i missed your earlier post regarding alloys upgrade to 15 inch,in that case your tyres will be useless because when you upsizing to 15 inch the Diameter of the wheel increases which is not a good thing to do,the same tyres might not even fit in due to size of the new rim as well,Your bigger diameter might not fit in the Wheel well as well,

I dont think you wish to purchase another tyre if you looking for 15 inch new rim...?

Isnt it...
