Increasing the tyre width gives a better stance to the vehicle. I believe the maximum allowed increased in circumference is 2% if you upsize the tyre.

From this link - http://tyrestore.in/upsizing.htm

The increase in circumference from 235/65 R17 to 255/60 R17 is 1.58mm (0.07%). So not much harm and wider tyres.

Hi Pratyush

Can you tell me something.I was looking up the website you mentioned.
When short-listing the rims, what is the stock width of the OEMs to search for and up to what width can one safely go to, without the wheel fouling with the body?.
