      Hi folks. I am planning to change tyres on my 3.5 years old VW Polo CL 1.2MPI. I was wondering what would be the benefits of upsizing my tyres to 195/55 R15? Would it impact Fuel Economy, Handling, Ground Clearance at all? Also, will 195/55 R15 tyres will fit my current/stock 15" rims?

      Guys.. Since the current Polo Highline and HL+ comes with 195/55 R16 (Alloy), Can I install the same in my 2014 Polo CL? Will there be any issue at all? My car came with 185/60 R15 steel wheel. I am considering 16" Momo Mosimo alloys and 195/55 tyre (brand/model not decided yet).

      ** I need to change my tyres asap as they have been punctured way too many times (Thanks to Good Year crap ).

      Cool choice of alloys, go ahead, no issues. I am using 16" Revenge wearing 195/55 MC5.

      Ground clearance will become better, wheel arch gap will get reduced which will make the car appearance more impressive.

      Thanks for responding mate! So there won't be any issue after the upgrade to 195/55 R16? Someone on a website mentioned that new Polo have a different ABS and suspension setup to accomodate 195/55 R16 and might not work well on previous Polos.

      Also, could be you please suggest me a good set of tyre? Which brand is yours?

      I have no idea about change in suspension or ABS in different makes. But this is true that car's behaviour will change. Initially you will like you are driving a different car due a minute raised stance, suspension behaviour will also change a bit, but you will get used to of it after few drives.

      Mine are Continental MC5. But remember they are asymmetrical, that means you can rotate them but can't flip if you wish to.

      I see. BTW, yours is a Diesel, right? Do you think the same set of alloy & tyre will behave differently on a Polo Petrol and Diesel?

      Petrol and diesel versions in general behave very differently due to massive weight difference. Petrol version feels much more lighter, easier and comfortable at the front compared to the diesel.
