      Guys...needs some help on choosing better tyres for Scala. Default size is 185/60/R15. Looking to go for 205 , especially for better braking performance.

      matbhuvi, you have technically correct two options to go with since you are looking towards a 205 size upgrade.

      Just a tyre upsize - 205/55/R15 tire size will end you up with (0.66%) variation from the original spec.

      Or an upsize to a larger 16" rims - 205/50/R16 will give a (1.33%) variation from the original spec. However, always better to stick to as close as possible with the factory given spec to avoid speedo error and other jazz

      Brand of Tyres; N number to choose from in both the specs; again depending on your requirement and budget (Mich's, Bridge's, Conti's, Yoko's, Maxxis, Apollo, etc)

      I would suggest to go with 195 instead of 205 - broader you go, more friction and the car will be that much sluggish. Also fuel economy will take a slight hit. 195 should provide you the additional boost.
