i'd say either/or. i like OE honda rings. i believe the vitaras usually come with hastings, which are fine. i imagine the grooves and dimensions of the rings and their lands are identical, someone know for sure?

They come with hastings rings. But for future reference: whatever piston you use determines the ring set you use.

The ring thickness is different depending on the piston (found this out the hard way).

Well i used Honda spec rings(Hastings) in my build and i sell them with Honda sepc rings..Except for the 75.5mm pistons that i sell them with Suzuki spec rings cause my supplier dont have Honda .020 rings.

So you can use either Honda rings or Suzuki rings.

If you need them let me know.

I sure hope he doesn't supply them this way. The rings should be matched to the piston. The block they're going in doesn't matter.

For more info reference:

http://www.hastingsmfg.com/Catalog/master.asp

Hastings master catalog gives individual top, bottom, and oil control ring thickness for many different makes, models, and engines.
