    Yep....if you increases diameter of wheels then ground clearance increase there's another way to increase ground clearance by installing spacers but they increases distance between wheels and body which looks awkward
    At present what is the profile of your wheels?

    Dont opt for 195/65 on city. Adds excessive load on steering, steering gets a little hard plus reduces the fuel avg by a little.

    It's power steering not manual whereas if there is a difference then it's not just little it's very very little.

    Telling out of my experience of three years with my own city and couple others in circle. My own rides 195 profile. Ive driven on 185 and 175 profiles too. Best suited is 185/65 r15.

    @op. Enjoy the car on the oem specs. I never faced any ground clearance issues on all three profiles.

    Stick to oem specs if you can. Otherwise go for bigger tyres. Never install spacers, they kill handling, comfort, and stability which can be dangerous.

    my experience is the same with a preface lift auto vs a face lift manual city, i've heard that the pre facelift had ground clearence equal to international models(150 or 155mm) and the face lift was raised by 10mm for Pakistan(160 or 165mm).

    What i hv notic3d in my city 16 is that its front mud guards are too big. They always touch most speed breakers.
    Try to compare it with rollas. Also notice that ur front mud guards are touching. Not under body. My cars mud guard is ruined.

    There is no solution to it, city is designed like that hence it gives you a better overhaul grip and control over your car. If you normally seat 4 -5 persons in your car and you have to drive over speed bumps all the time i suggest you to go for a rolla .

    simply install 1 inch rubber spacers under body and it should fit over the top of shocks, this will not effect the mechanism of your suspension.
