Checkout tyredekho tyre upsizing tool- http://tyres.cardekho.com/tyre-upsize. I will recommend you to upsize to 195/65R14 size. However, as a rule me make sure that we don't recommend a tyre size whose diameter difference is more than 3% from the original size. This means that the change in ground clearance will be neglegible. We think that tyre upsize should not be seen a way to increase ground clearance as it can severely affect the handling of a vehicle. You can go for Continental ContiComfortContact CC5 tyres
Hi, I Own Honda Jazz company Tyre is 175/65 R15 and i have changed to 195/55 R16 WITH ALLOYS is it advisable
Yes, the upsize from 175/65R15 to 195/55R16 is alright. The diameter variance between the 2 size is 2.04%. We generally advise the upsize if the diameter variance is under 3%.
