Any tire up-sizing is recommended, as long as the diametrical difference is less than 2%

Considering this, 185/65/R15 tires will have a diameter variance of 3.07%. Even though your car's ground clearance will be increased by 9.25 mm, it is not recommended.

A better up-size will be 195/60/R15, which will have diameter variance of 1.99% and your car's GC will increase by 6mm. Will result in overall improved grip and comfort levels.

Also while choosing the tires go for Michelin XM2 or Yokohama Earth 1. These two brands come higly recommended by Team-BHPians for their quality and reliability.
