Since the ride quality and high speed balance is spot on with the tired I have now, I dont know how the vehicle would behave with the bigger tires.

Please suggest the right tire for my Freestyle that supports my usage.
The possible upgrades would be
1)195/55/r15
2)205/55/r15
After reading your post I think it is better you get some good set of tyres with the stock size or else upgrade to 195 section for overall good stability and control.

What do you say about 205 70 R15 AT tires?

This will be a wrong upsize with an overall difference of more than 10 mm.

Default Re: Ford Freestyle : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

Not that I am looking for a tyre upgrade right away, but I would like to do so once the stock set (185/60/15 Goodyear Assurance) requires a change. So far, I have clocked 19500 kms with no issues (zero punctures). I do ensure to check the alignment and balancing the wheels along with recommended rotation every 5000 kms and or as required.

Now, I do want to keep my stock 15 wheels of the Freestyle as these are well suited IMHO. I also want to upgrade my steel spare wheel to the stock alloy type.

After reading all the posts here, it seems like the 195/55/15 ones are the best option for Freestyle without offsetting the carís dynamics.

That being said, I would like to know the pros and cons of upgrading the tyres to the following sizes:

1.) 195/55/15
2.) 195/60/15

Personally, I am not keen on upgrading the tyres with shorter side wall for the heck of better stance and look.
