So you changed the stock tires that are of size 175/65 R14 to 185/65/R14 ??
And that increased the ground clearance from 165mm to 172mm??
172mm is quite acceptable and I would be happy with that.
What's your tire pressure set to?
How can we validate the increase in the ground clearance?
The reason I am asking this question is: A month ago I had a chat with the Nissan staff to find out how I could potentially increase the ground clearance of Nissan Micra by upgrading the tires and he didn't think changing tires would really help the ground clearance. Honestly I was not convinced with the answer but I left it at that. Perhaps this thread would help me gain a deeper understanding of upgrading tires in order to increase ground clearance.
