@v6turbo
Did you upgrade to 17" yet?
I dont know abt 17", but you can easily go for 16" with tyre size of euro spec i20.
Tyre size: 195/50 R16
The side wall height difference is less than an inch, which I think should be ok atleast on cities.

If looks could kill, the i20 is a mafia on when on 17's. But the ride goes for a toss big time. Plus you need to be very very careful in dealing with bumps and potholes. I'll suggest you get decent rims in 15s. They are best compromise for ride, handling, and comfort. And car looks good too though nowhere close to 17s.
Hope I've helped in confusing you.

Is there a noticeable difference in mileage from when you had the stock tires and the existing 205/55/15s?

If any i20's owners are willing to sell their 14" original alloys, I might be interested to pick it up.

Had a look at original i20 wheels. They are 14" 5.5j size. It is embossed on the inner side.

I was looking for at least 6j, hence dropping the requirement.

I've searched but have been unable to find if the size 6,5J x 15H2 is a correct upgrade for the i20. Would appreciate if I'm pointed towards the correct thread, or told if this would be a correct size.

Yes. 6.5 x 15 will be ideal for i20. I'm using the same too. And go for 195/55 or 205/55 size tyres though my car runs on 195/60.

Hey abhimanyu_singh this is your first Post, so welcome to TBHP

In case you are looking to retain the 14" Size, you have loads of options to choose from. You can go in for 195/60/R14 Tires which should give the best of pretty much everything.
If you plan to upsize to 15", as many have advised, go in for 195/55/R15 tires.
You can check on some threads here or with tire experts to help you decide on which make.

Regarding you OEM Alloys, you can get a good deal by exchanging them with the same dealer from whom you plan to buy you New set. I guess the spare wheel on your I20 has never been put to use.

So if I were you, I would retain the fifth one in my boot and swap the four used ones to either 14" or 15".

All the Best with your purchase.
