  2. Tyres & Alloy Wheels
  3. Friday, July 12 2019
My ecosport have 195/65/r15, I want to upgrade to 16 inch, I had selected Primacy 3st 205/55/r16 tyre, but tyre dealer suggested 205/60 r16, this will increase the ground clearance 9mm, I think that will lead to increase the body-roll,

I had no need to increase the Ground clearance,

If I fit 205/55/16 , I will face any other issues,

Although going by size R16 205/55 is closer but a better upsize is yes R16 205/60
Been sidewall aspect ratio will increase it will make ride more plush as against 205/55

Infact the tyre size R15 195 is for Ambiente Model and R16 205/60 is what ford India used to add in Titanium model
A better upsize would be R16 205/60 - no need to worry for body roll as suspension is stiffer in Ecosport

Hope should help !!
