I wanted to ask can I upsize the tyres to 225/60/R18. Checked on internet and came to know that it will result in speedometer error. I want to know apart from speedometer error what other disadvantages it may have.
Try 245/50, it gives a error within tolerance of 2%, which is the recommended limit. There is really no other issue apart from speedometer error, you get additional clearance with 225/60.

Thanks a lot sir. I do not intend to increase the width. I just want to increase the sidewall height as I feel 225/55 is not suitable for bad roads or potholes

From the horse's mouth (your Tucson owner's manual) - see below

Of course, itís your vehicle & itís your choices, but choose wisely.

You can, and for Indian road point of view regardless of what the manual says, you actually should upsize to 60 profile. There is enough wheel well, and power for the added weight of the larger tyres for you to notice anything, apart from a much plusher ride. Just keep the stock tyres as a spare set for your visits to Hyundai A.S.S.
