Hello,

Instead of R15 185/65 a better upsize would be R15 195/60
The size quoted R15 185/65 exceeds the circumference deviation marginally over 2% - which makes it slight agressive

A better upsize would be to consider R15 195/60

Benefits would likely provide in
> better stability on bad patch roads,
> better high speed highway dynamics,
> slight better ground clearance and
> even driving on wet roads with firmness.

Downside is that
> steering may feel marginal stiff from existing set up and the
> Tyre may scrape the wheel well on bad patch roads in case of driven on speed but with having 4 or more members on board

Hope should help !!

Hello,

OEM Stock Size is recommended one if not to disturb on mileage, handling
The Upsize is been done by users to improve on driving dynamics with more firmness

As long as the upsize deviation is less than 1.5% - a negligible impact is what only there on suspension and mileage
In number terms for mileage - a maximum 5% drop can be expected in real life drive - provide the upsize is not aggressive and is within 1.5% deviation limit

If you feel to be on safer side w.r.t no impact on Suspension and mileage - should consider Stock Size R15 175/65
For alloy wheels - they are primarily for aesthetic and styling - in mileage terms - very marginal 1% gain can be observed in real life considered as alloys are relative lighter than steel wheel. However - its primarily the aesthetics and styling point for which alloy wheels are bought

Hope should help !!

I am using 2015 Honda City VX. Stock was 175/65R15. Upgraded to 185/60R15.
Not happy with Braking and suspension.
Can I change to 185/65R15?
Please with pros & cons
Thanks

Dear Friend,

The correct up size for your Honda city is 195/60 R 15. I am using the same vehicle with this up size. My suggestion Bridgestone ER60 is better for you.
