    Can I upgrade to 205/50 R16, it's 10mm ore than 195/55 R16. I don't want visual difference moksh, I need better handling , better rubber, what do u think?

    205/55 won't touch the wheel well right? , even when the steering is fully turned to either side

    @Shrayus I think i have covered all preimum brands .
    1)205/55R16

    Yokohama Advan Sport
    Yokohama AVS DB Decimel
    Michelin Primacy 3 ST
    Falken Azenis PT722 = 21384
    Bridgestone Ecopia
    Goodyear Eagle F1 = 28604
    Goodyear Eagle EfficientGrip(Run On Flat)
    Goodyear Eagle NCT5 = 25736
    Goodyear Assurance Triple Max
    Continental PreimumContact 2
    Contiental MaxContact MC5 = 32000
    Pirelli P7(also Available Run Flat) = 30580

    2) 205/50R16
    Yokohama S Drive = 33680
    Pirelli P7

    3)215/50 R16

    Sorry totally lost it this size is not available in indian markets, also I didnt put on my list otherwise this was the perfect size.

    While looking at the list one thing I can say that you should go for 205/55R16 because incase of emergency you will definetly get these tyres at local shop.Also regarding the dealer said about michelin 205/50R16 I couldnt find in michelin website or any other.

    @Shrayus One more thing to point out . You Said dealer is giving 205/50 R16 with michelin but as per website its not available . And you want 205/55 R16 so do conform with dealer and also ask If you dont want to buy tyres from them how much they will give you. Also ask tyre dealers about this situation they can also offer you a good price.

    I asked a couple of tire dealers, that I will come straight from the showroom to ur garage , I will pay the extra money for the bigger tires. They said we do not exchange , tires r actually 6000(set of 4) cheaper outside than the same ones I am getting from the showroom
