    You have two options
    Either stick to 185/70/r14
    Or
    Upgrade to 196/60/r15 with Linea rims n active model wheel caps

    Tyres : Michelin primacy 3st, continental mc5, Yoko earth 1... Generally best ones

    Regards

    16 inch will be bit more costly affair
    Still if u wanna proceed size would be 205/55/r16,
    But IMO pickup and mileage will be affected badly, as your is classic

    Thanks Vicky.
    I want to upgrade tyres to increase the height and ground clearance.
    According to Tyre Change Calculator I received these two options.
    185/60R15
    195/59R16

    It has 175/70R14
    but 195/60R15 was not advised.

    Please give your inputs.

    195/60/r15, 195/55/r15 is definitely advisable so does the 185/60/r15

    But 195/60/r16 not adivesed at all

    If u opt for 16 inch wheels, aspect ration should be 55mm otherwise tyre will rub on the fenders

    Also if u decrease 10 mm of aspect ratio by keeping the inch size same then u will loose 4.5 mm of ground clearance
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 24, 2015 ---
    I would suggest 195/60/r15

    As I suggested in my earlier post too,
    Go for 195/60 r15
    That would be best bet.
    Brand depends on your requirement
    Michelin would give more kms than continental,
    Yoko's will be more on comfortable,
    And stay away from mrf,
    If budget is constraint , u can see falken,hankook..

    Thanks Vicky and Murukesh... You guys are amazing.
    Actually, I should break the ice now. The dead axle of my car got damaged due to which car started eating tyres. This is also because of less ground clearance. Hence I am thinking of updating.
    Plz check this:
    http://tyrestore.in/upsizing.htm
    According to this the best is:
    185/60R15

    Folks,

    Just update me about the drive experience of Falken Sincera 835.
    It is very cheap in Paytm!

    If the reviews are good, then i will buy it.
