The 13" wheels were only fitted to non-Gti Swifts here in Australia.
edit - was wrong about PCD on Mk2/3

Mk2/3 swifts (non GTi) had the same PCD as the GTi. Well mine did. the 13's don't clear the front calipers but do the rear.

From memory they were 5" wide and ran a 155/70R13 tyre

I edited my post above as it was rubbish.
We use a set of Ford Laser (same as Mazda 323/Familia) 13" rims for track use.
Just had to ream the centre bore out a little to suit the Gti
