Hi Anil,

There will be problems because of the increase in overall diameter as you go for a taller side profile. The SuperLow already has very limited suspension travel. The tyre will brush up against the mud guard when compressed, unless you rework the shockers at the back.

Recommendation: Stick with the same size. To improve comfort, see if you can install gel pads on the seats. It won't be cheap but comfort levels will go up.
