I have booked my Maruthi Swift VDI and expected to deliver it by this month.
I am planning to put alloy wheels on my car.I heard that,If we are putting alloy wheels we have to change the tyres also to get good look.
Whether i should put 14 inch tyre or 15 inch tyre with alloy?
If i put 15 inch, will it have any performance impact? If i put 14 inch, will it have good look?
Request your opinion on this.
I would personally prefer 15" alloys, as it improves the look of the car a lot. also prefer to change the tyres(obvisously, as i upgrade the rim size from 14" to 15") and go for 195/65 bridgestone tyres
If any one have 15 '' tyre fitted in your Maruthi swift VDI,Please tell me the difference in mileage and performance comparing to default tyres
FE change would be negligible.
Alloys would be better as you would be putting wider tyres.
15'' If you interested in looks.
Else stick to 14'' as warranty void problems wont be there. Take 185/70 tyres or 195.
Bridgestone gives better looks. Michelin XM1+ is also a good option.
use this link to check what is the correct size. the diameter change should be under 3% in any case.

Muhammed 14" or 15" is fine. Don't try 16 or 17. My frined had tried that had he tyre failure very often. For the rest, Satya has provided the link.
Did i miss something ? was there a query on 16"/17" wheels?
I Dont think so Binoy.. it was just a general sugesstion i guess... correct me if i am wrong @Mustang
No yoou aren't. Low profile tyres are very tempting to be owned, so I mentioned that as well.
I have Pirelli 14" standard tyres for my Honda city zx. I wish to go for alloy wheels. Please guide me for - (a) do I go for 14" / 15"? (b) which brand do I go for among the economy ones?
