Hi Bakiya_2k12,

Upsizing the tyre / Rim's will obviously result in a Speedo Error.

There are many sites, which let you calculate the delta change and help in minimizing this.
Eg
Kouki Tech >> Tyre size calculator

You can alternately refer Tyre manufacture sites like the Michelin India one below, where they have matched different possible upgrades based on car make/mode.
Michelin India - Tyres For My Car

205/55-15 would be perfect. No issues of fouling anywhere.

Hi,

I have a red swift with lexus eyes ( whats is basically known as ) the three lights with three parking lights (small ) . For the high beam i have PHILIP rallye 12v/100w bulb, but i feels its got a less spread and focus then the stock high beam light. The next thing for the low beam i have a xenon 10000k hid light , in the low beam there is a cutter which cuts the light so that it acts as a low beam and the light is not speard all around , i wanted if we can remove that cutter which places the light as low beam. So please advice on the high beam and the low beam also
