Default Tyres and alloys for lancer

Hey guys i am going to book my red lancer tomorrow.
I plan to upgrade the tyres to 14 inch or 15 inchers.
Here are my priorities -
1. looks
2. handling but not a deterioration in ride comfort (a bit is acceptable)

What size do you guys reccomend.
My budget is a total of 25K out of which 8K is for the tyres so guys please reccomend.
Oh and what colour alloys will go with the red colour?
Thanx.

Its 6.35 for a 2004 model. They only have adark blue one remaining though.
Check out Metro Motors.
Oh and it is not 6.35 on road. Ex showroom price with mudflaps, mirror locks, extended warranty, floor mats.

6.95 on road..............
even 6.35 in hyd its not worth it, you have to change to mh registration again. I was almost buying a c class in pune which is 3 lks less than hyd , but withdrew.

205/50/15 is good also 195/55/15...they will be good ride and handling without becoming too sluggish or ride becomng too hard.

But since they are low profile the ride should technically become worse right.
Which make do you guys suggest?
I think 195/55/R15 will be it.
Is it OD close to 608mm?

the profile is a little bit lower not too low to make ride quality poor. 50/55 profile is ideal for our city driving..in fact i have thrashed my car with 50 profile tires on the highways and luckily no bends on the wheels or any damages....its also relative to the width. a 205/50/15 has the same profile height as 235/40 so dont worry about 50/55 profile its ideal.

The lancer originally comes with 175/80/R13 tyres.
In comparision there will be a significant drop in ride quality.
Am i right.
My parents will also sit in the car at times.
Thanx guys
