    14 or 15 tyre with alloy for Maruti Swift.

    I have booked my Maruti Swift VDI and predictable to deliver it by this month. I am preparing to put alloy wheels on my car. I heard that, if we are place alloy wheels we have to modify 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?

    Consider Michelin, MRF zv2k, and Apollo acelere. Avoid JK's, Bridgestone and Goodyear. They are noisy. Ideally 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.

    Good choice of tyres. Even S drives are good but the wear and tear is more and they look elder sooner than you can wait for [besides not meant for Indian roads]. Do post your pictures 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 that’s the size for the OHC] which a friend of mine acquire a week back.
