Gurjinder, Suspected so but everywhere i read about aquaplaning it was only mentioned about wide tires.. Didnt think otherwise... Thanks for the clarification. i drive '09 model with stocks (175/75 R14) , so you say i can safely upgrade to 16" at least? without sidewall issues? If so I'm really keen on upsizing it. Also a rough idea on the drop in mileage if i change over to 16" ? 2.) what do you think about the steering feedback as well?
