    If you are required to drive frequently on bumpy or rural roads then its better to change your car. Otherwise try to find tyres with 70 profile eg. 175/70/15. Such tyres are a bit rare but they will give you some extra clearance. Spacers are something which I would not recommend. Avoid bumps and when passing over speed breakers just reduce speed and cross it a bit sideways. Hope this helps
    :-)

    Change the ccar to Corolla if you really have to travel much to villages and bumpy road. Otherwise you will get your car ruined in a long run

    My experience is a bit different. Mud flaps do hit speed breakers once in a while but nothing like broken pins let alone any damage to the bottom of the car in last 11 years of driving multiple Honda City's (2005, 2008, 2012 and 2015 models) and driving in cities like Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar and Multan to village roads in Distt Khushab, Sargodha, Bhulwal to Naran and Babusar top (visit to Naran / babusar two times....latest visit was 3 months back and it did hit at few places but nothing serious). And guess what.....All my Honda City's were/are stock with stock tyres and rims size....no spacers, bigger tyres or Rims ever used.
