I had them on my 93 Metro for a while. They really stick to the road and it corners very well. These particular wheels and tires are very heavy as I got the wheels cheep just to see if they fit. 41lbs with tires. On the highway the mileage is 41mpg but regular city country is 32mpg.

The fenders need to be rolled and pulled out some. And tight turning they rub the inner wheel wells.

I personally think 17" are too big for a swift, 16" are on the edge, 15" are just perfect :-P

The 17s are huge. I am looking at a set of 15s and plan to weigh them first before I buy them. I don't want to go any bigger than that.

I played with the 17's from my xB. 215/40/17s just barely fit and I was able to turn without wheel well rubbing... the only problem was that the tires would rub on the fender everytime I hit a pebble on the road. That plus my speedo was off by a mile. Pretty baller though.
