Hi this is Vivek from Chennai, I bought a Honda City couple of months back, I very much badly wanted to put a 17' alloy to my car, so i fixed a 17' alloy with Yokohama 215/40/17 tires. For the past three weeks or so am experiencing my suspension to be stiffer and it doesn't filter through the pot holes and bumps easily. Is it due to the low profile tires? If so please Suggest me about the correct tire profile for 17' alloy that would fit my car. It would be great if you can help me out. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Yes - most likely be

Using Such low Profile Tyres - can be good only when suspension supports in
Honda City already has soft suspension and upsizing to 17 Inch Alloys - though with R215/40 will make the ride bit bounce and make Steering turns too even stiff. Yes - driving on Pot holes and Bumps would stiff in the ride quality.

We would not recommend in 17 Inch Alloys unless the Suspension is also been modified - like H&R, Bilstein
In case you seek to modify same and relate to performance - may check with Modification experts like - Pete Automotive in this field.

Hope should help !!

215/40/R17 is a good choice but you should work on your suspension.
I have a Honda City 2016 model, I have gotten 205/45/R17. I would suggest you to get this.
