Dont go for 165/65-13 it will touch at the rear unless u use spacers to raise the suspension...Also with stock steel 4J rims it will hamper your braking n steering...
Stick to stock size else go for 165/60-13 with alloys...

155/70/13 isn't a right upsize....
155/65/13 good upsize but wont give u much choice in choosing a rubber

Bridgestone- soft rubber , quite n grippy
MRF ZVTS- noisy, long lasting n gives exceptional braking (my choice)
Goodyear- Avg of them, nothing great
