185/55 R15 will be an ideal upgrade I guess..Thai spec cities run on these.
Another interesting upgrade will be 195/60 R15.

would you all suggest a 15"er or 16"er i personally want a 16"er but dont want the ride to be really rough or for the car to hit breakers if even one person is sitting..

Personally speaking 15inchers will be more then enough for a NHC Vtec. The car with 16inchers will ride very bad and will affect the speedo quite a lot.

Why dont you go in for 195/60/15. They will be just perfect for the car.

Cheers
