All tyres are identical but wear and tear depends on the usage of the driver whether driven in hills or on a highway. So the tyres are object to change with the usage which may cause problems like puncture, heavy wear and tear in a few days of purchase itself.
a) Did you use the spare tyre up on the rear left, when you interchanged the Front left tyre with rear left tyre? or
b) Did you use the Front tyre up on the rear left?
a) If you have used the spare tyre on the rear left then that may be the cause of wobbling because the spare tyre must be used as a spare tyre for a certain period of time and it must not be a permanent tyre for the car and spare tyre is mainly provided by the manufacturer's for an emergency. And have you noticed that the spare tyre has a different tyre pressure than any other tyres and a different speed limit
( most cars have upto 80 kmph ) so if these are not followed then there will be a heavy wear and tear which no one can feel or see. And as the spare tyre uses different tyre pressure than the other tyre's and if the spare tyre is used for a long period then it is subject to wobbling.
b) Still the same thing but this is somewhat different by way that, when you use the front left tyre to rear left tyre the wear and tear of tyre will be more in the front tyre than the rear tyre as swift is a front wheel drive vehicle so the tyre pressure also differs,rotating the wheels in this manner is a correct choice but if a new one is not replaced within a short period of time then the inner part of the tread pattern gets invisible and then there will be a sudden loss of tyre pressure within a period of 2-3 days and it starts to wobble. ( It happened in my Ritz VDI, now sold )
Though it is not the X type rotation, it is not a problem at all but generally interchanging tyres in our car is mainly for an emergency and the puctured or the spare tyre must be serviced as soon as possible and that tyre must be fitted by removing the interchanged tyre ( change the tyre only if the serviced tyre is in good condition otherwise it is better to buy a new one ).
The service people also suggested me to do a wheel alignment and i have done it many times then as i told you before i consulted the other service people and they gave me an answer that it was due to wrong rotation and they even showed me the tyre by removing it from the car and i saw little bit of wear and tear in the inner tread pattern which has made the car to wobble.
And they even told me that it was due to the wrong rotation of the wheels which made the tyre to be with more wear and tear.
