The only reason you would go for a 16 is when you reeeeele reeele want a 17 but absolutely dont want the hard ride that comes along with it.

Otherwise for a regular show and use upgrade 15inches are more than enough. They look good and are not too hard on the suspension either...

If u got no budget issues then y dont u go for 205/50-16 instead of 15" which also has same profile(50)...Also this is the most exact upsize possible,...

205/60-15 is not the right upsize n could be tall enough to cause problems in the wheel wells....

taking kpzen and Autopsyche's suggestion, I will check out 16" with 50 profile.

Guys Iam taking your word for it , hope the ride quality is not very bad as it sounds once I upsize to 16"ers(50p)

Check the modified lancers thread, the red lancer in question is running on 16"... ride quality isnt bad but not too great either as there is always the question of tyres touching even with spacers and suspension mods. Anyway with our bangalore roads where's the quality anyway... hehe

p.s : iv forgotten the exact profile of the tyres, will let you know shortly
