Hello! I am allergic to the noise of engine guard scraping on our roads. . I am a careful driver and have the necessary skills to avoid bottom scraping, thanks to my current car – Opel Corsa. Despite being careful, there are times when the car bottoms and it always is very painful. I am evaluating the possibility of upsizing the stock tyres on my yet to be delivered Linea MJD to 195/65 R15. I intend to undertake some long drives. I want to protect her against any challenging roads that we might encounter. I have seen several threads where other TFIians have adopted this method to increase ground clearance. I would not be able to upsize the alloys - too expensive. I discussed this with a local tyre dealer who has agreed to take back the tyres that would come with my Linea at its (MRP - Rs 500). I have a quote for Michelin XM1+ 195/65 R15 at Rs 5650 each. I would have to pay the difference amount. Assuming I get 3.5k for the stock tyres (likely to be Apollo Accelere), I would need to pay 10.75k for a set of 5 tyres ((5.65 x 5) – (3.5 k x 5)) Need your inputs: 1. Is upsizing necessary? Linea's GC 161 mm is marginally better than Opel Corsa's 160. 2. Am I getting a reasonable deal at 10.75k? 3. Most important – have there been any adverse effects observed by the owners who have upsized their car's tyres? Please share your thoughts Dear Mods: I had posted this in another thread (increasing height of Linea). I am not sure if I have broken any rules by posting this again here. I find this is a more appropriate place. Please delete this post if you find this inappropriate.
