Folks, I am waiting for delivery of my Verna Fluidic 1.6 CRDi SX Opt AT in about 10 days.
The stock tires are 195/55 R16. I'm feeling a bit greedy, so am considering Michelin 215/55 R16 97W (Primacy 3ST)
But since "55" is aspect ratio, increasing width from 195 to 215 (20 mm) would increase the diameter, and I could run the risk of the tires touching the car body?
Option 2 is Yokohama - AS01 - 205/50 - 16 87 W
with specs 205/50 R16. This seems closer in gross diameter to 195/55 R16.
Another option is Michelin - Primacy LC - 205/55R16 (91W)
, which would be slightly higher in gross diameter, but I could use the extra GC if there is no risk of tires touching body.
Does anyone know of any 215/45 R16 or 215/50 R16 tires available in India that would fit the stock alloys on the SX (Opt) Verna without GC/body-touching problems?
I want the widest tires possible that would fit the stock alloys, please suggest!
