    Guys,

    I recently upgraded the ground clearance of my Linea MJD 2011 with the kit. However this had dampned the beauty of the Linea as the gap between the wheel and the body is really an eyesore. I was wondering to upgrade the tires to a 16 or 17 inch rims. Wondering whether any one in the group has done this. I'd love feedbacks and insights on this. :)

    Even if you increase to 16" or 17", you need to keep dia within limit.

    You can choose 195/65 on R15 itself. It will increase your dia by few mm.

    Don't think that would be enough Ravi.. Am already on 195/55/r15... Have already done the gc upgrade... My linea's 2011 model and after the upgrade looks like a lady with half the saree pulled up.. :(

    :).

    Use this calculator and choose any tyre size, but the different should be under 4%.

    Thanks for the good info Ravi... My issue is not the ground clearance anymore... I just want to fill that awkward looking space between the tire and the body...

    Got it, but keep in mind, odd tyre size will disturb your ODO indicators.
