    use 185/65/R15 Dunlop Eco or Lemans. Use stepny of City iVTEC and Xli wheelcovers. Height/ground clearance does improve, ive tried this size personally.

    rim and tyre for vitz -1198309 Here is a photo of my 1.3 vitz on 195/60/R15 Yokohama ES100.. they felt really hard so changed the tyres to 185/65/R15 Dunlop ECO. Ive used rims with these, but for a more economical solution, you can use city ivtec's stepnies.

    Default I want 175 Tyre size in my 1300CC Vitz bcoz i want Economy and Pick Both !

    I have the 165 in R14 Dunlop tire.... Problem is that I want 175 which tire for 1) No Economy compromise, 2) A little more Grip and mainly Height increase, 3) No Power suffering due to Deceleration issue. In my Research I found 175 tire in 13R (Rim size).. So I was hesitant in going for it... Reason not known as I did not want R13 just.... Please assist and help how do I increase the height as in my previous Vitz I had 185 R14 Champiro... Very good but Pick suffered a lot !

    You have a 1.3 Vitz, hence 14" shouldn't be a problem. However, the brand of the tyre matters a lot. A soft tyre like eco will provide less grip, more economy and smooth ride on bumpy roads. On the other hand, a hard tyre like sp sport 9000 will provide more grip, less economy.... the height increase will be almost the same for these two tyres assuming that the wall height is the same.

    @ivtec3@ Thanks for the suggestion... My question remains outstanding... 175 size recommendation required with the above benefits in mind... sorry but I have practical experience of the issue... AND why aren't there 175 in R14 ??? Yes R13 can adjust it like Cultus Tire/Rim...

    there are tyre sizes of 165 and 175 in R14. Ive seen them. But the issue is that most tyre importers/dealers don't keep them as they are not in demand as such. I would advise you to use 185.. wouldn't make much of a diff in economy and pick. I had 185/65/R14 in 1KR-FE.
