Max upsize could be 205/40-17......but will never recommend u that ......

185/60-14 is a good upsize

185/60-14 is the company recommened size, while 195/55-14 won't do you any harm either. I believe we have members here with 205/50-15, but that's about the limit I'd go.

195 is more than enough. 185/60/R14 would be the optimal upsize for nice looks,good ride as well as decent handling.

Wrong upsize .....its too tall a tyre for an accent n will scrape everywhere....

If u want 17" then go for 205/40-17 else stick to 185/60-14
