Do you want to change just the tyres or the wheels as well?

the OE size is 195/70-14. You can go for that.

I'm not very familiar with the qualis and havent seen people upgrade to fatter rubber on the qualis. So if you do upgrade I'm not sure it will foul with the body.

Paras,

I had upgraded to bridgestone 205/70-14 earlier in my qualis. But i am not sure about wall size, it was either 65 or 70. And 205 will not touch the body.
