    @dragmaster

    the city comes with 165/80/r13 tyres,,,,,,,,,,u can go to 185 but not more than that ,,,bcoz of the large size of ur rim ,,,,,i-e 15 the suspension might be affected ,,,,,,and also bigger tyres mean lower fuel economy

    so my opinion wud be to go for r 14 max and 185 max

    if OEM is 165/80R13 (594mm) than you can go for 195/55R15 (596mm) or 185/60R15 (603mm) any more than that and you are going to ruin the ride and economy of your car (and possibly have rubbing issues on your front fender)

    BTW - if you go for @hamdani_08's suggestion you'll need 185/65R14 (596mm)

    205 would throw a lot of mud on rear bumper and front footboards and doors because it is slightly out of wheel wells.

    I made the same mistake while choosing tyres for my xli, but after three or four hours returned the tyres Dunlop (205/-/14) and got Yokos 185/65/14. Lost some money, but reclaimed it by saving on fuel and less wear and tear to suspension.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Apart from all the ills that you get with oversized tyres, The worst part will be that you cars computer will get wrong input from Vehicle speed sensor (VSS) resulting in incorrect injection timings etc. This will further ruin your fuel consumption.
    I would suggest that you get the tyre replaced with size 195/55 R15 since you have already invested on the rims. Otherwise the best combination is 185/65 R14.
    By the way always get advice first and then do the decision making instead of doing it the otherway round.

    205\60\15 are too big for city( with most rims). On my cousins city 05, on jumps the back wheels will touch the car body and it can become very very annoying. The situation will worsen if you have people in the back or CNG kit installed.
    Because of this i opted for 185\65 R13 in my city06 . In my honest opinion i would suggest you try the wheels out on different type of road conditions, and if there is any contact between the tire and body, i would say you get the size changed while you can still get good money for them.
    Rest is upto you...... ( another option can be to go for some other rims which have different offset ... etc)
