If you are upsizing your tyres then you may want to raise your car by adding spacers inside the shock absorbers. The Zen is anyways notorious for having its underbody touch any speed breakers at high loads so it may be a good idea to raise it anyways.
I am using 165/65R13 Bridgestones which required me to raise my Zen (2002). But then i also have Alloys on which portrude outside the car.
