    as far as i know the sizes i mentioned are very close to stock and they should not cause any rubbing issues as long as the rims are within the specified range (make sure the rims are not too wide or have too much of an offset).

    as far as prices are concerend, not sure as i have no idea as to the market rates for rims lately. my advice is to shop around before buying.

    go for the freshest tyres you can. check the date stamp (which many dealers change). it's a 4 digit code embossed in an oval on the sidewall of the tyre. the first 2 digits are the week it was produced and the second 2 are the year.

    example:

    2208 would mean the tyres were made in the 22nd week of 2008. DO NOT buy a tyre which was made any later than 4008 otherwise they'll have a very short life as they will have started getting harder than what is acceptable for daily useage.

    Dunlop prove to be better in Pakistan..especially on smaller cars..they're softer, and offer better drive comfort.

    13's would be better - as the stock size is 12, size 13 would automatically counter the ~5kmph error which comes in almost every suzuki's speedometer.
