Hallo All,

I've got me a slightly modified 1993 5-Door Suzuki Swift SF413-2. Suspension mods include H&R Springs, Front Strut Tower Brace, Front Lower Control Arm Mount Brace, Whiteline Swaybar in the rear, Rear Strut Tower Brace, Poly Bushings all around... This car came with a stock rim and tire setup running 155/70R13 on a 13x5 rim and it's been running on 185/60R13s with some Cimaut 13x5.5 Rims for most of its life, however, it's about time for me to replace these aged rims as I'm beginning to run into issues with flat spots and rims that are no longer true when you spin them.

My question is will Diamond Racing Wheels sized 13x5.5 (like the wheels I run now) wrapped in 185/60R13 tires be able to stand up to daily street use which includes the occasional pot hole, speed bumps and uneven road surfaces (these are considerably more frequent than the pot holes) as I am currently unable to easily source other light-er weight 13 inch rims; and finding tires in a profile to fit 14s on this car and maintain my gearing is next to impossible!

Shouldn't be a problem. They're quality rims.

Thanks Suprf1y! I was hoping someone like you would answer, so I can pretty much go with their Spun Shell 11 pound 13x5.5 rim and exercise the same caution I have been for the last how many years and I should be just fine. Diamond Racing Wheels ring me up please!

I may not be getting them on there, I can't seem to find someone down here who does proper balancing on lug centric wheels... :( . My Dad's got Lug Centrics on his Vitara and seems to have no issues balancing on the hub centric balancers down at our preferred service center but I don't know if I'll have the same luck. So I'm still stuck a bit not knowing what to do next...
