Choosing Tyre size

Hi

Im just wondering is there any advantage/disadvantage while choosing different size Tyre than the company one. If there is any advantage which size is most suitable.

Thanks

In most cases, for general utilitarian type driving, no there is no positive or negative in differing tyres size from manufacturer spec. If you are one who enjoys more spirited, fast cornering, aggressive style, then you'd appreciate and benefit from increasing width by 1 or 2 sizes.

Too tall. 205/55/15 is very close to factory sizing when it comes to overall diameter.

What do you have for wheels? Factory alloy, factory steelies, or something aftermarket?

Factory alloy. I have two yaris. I put 195/55/R15 on my old one and it is running well for last couple of years. So what would be the best size. Factory one is (175/65/R15) If we reduce the tall will that make any difference in showing the speed. If that doesnt make any change then would consider a smaller height one.
