I have Ford Ecosport platinum edition with 17" alloy wheel tyre size 205/50 R17 . Can i upgrade tyres with more aspect ratio which size will suit.

Thats already a tyre in Low Profile category
Upsizing to increase in aspect ratio from 50% to 55% will increase in tyre circumference beyond acceptable deviation, which is around 3.5% and also R17 205/55 is an odd size, if going in with same

The only option available is R17 215/50 - which may create a marginal difference as
> Sidewall height is improved from 4 inch to 4.2 Inch
> Width and Tyre Height also slight increased

But expecting too much of a difference from stock size and considering cost involved - it wont be worth
Hope should help !!
