Centerbore - 67.1mm

Thread Pitch: 12x1.5 12 x 1.5

Thickness - 25mm

So I wanted to know if any has tried these adapters and if anyone can help me out.

You are going to have a hard time getting those wheels to fit a metro/swift.

The metro wheels have a 56.1mm center bore and a 4x114.3 (4x4.5") bolt pattern. The offset also needs to be somewhat close to 40mm.

The adapter spacers that bolt to the hubs and have a different bolt pattern are typically quite thick, as seen in the 25mm thickness of the E-bay ones you mentioned. These will require an additional 25 mm of offset in the wheels to fit correctly and I doubt that the wheels your friend gave you have a 65mm offset.

Your best option will be to sell the wheels to a civic owner and buy a set of wheels with the proper 4x114.3 bolt pattern.
