    @Hash would 17's hurt the suspension in the long run. Means obviously they are in bigger size and would be heavy in weight as well.

    Yes.they will disturb fuel economy. They will put stress on suspension. They will cause in accurate speedo reading.but the gap in the rear fenders is crazy.you can either drop the car with lowering springs or put bigger wheels

    @zwk641

    Sir 17 is not good, fuel consumption will be ruined. You may use 205/55/16 or 205/65/16.

    I am using 215 60 R 16 in my Gli Auto
    Which is more than enough for this small engine

    But for 1.8 you should go for

    215 50 R 17
    Even ppl are getting 215 55 R17 for new Corolla because that arch gap just spoils the whole look
    If you are a careful driver there wont be any bad effect on suspension
    And if you have many rough and broken routes daily then
    Go for 16s with good profile ( 60 )

    What r u doing with the orignal alloys?
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    dude
    pakistani roads r not for low profile or semi low profile tires it will damage ur suspension n minus plus circle in odo meter n in ur mind
    although grandi doesnt look good without wider tires but u have to stick to oem rim size as 15
    n use 225/65/15
    the grip would be awesome n looks will be fantastic n ur gap will be curtailed in looks
    even 225 s v big for corrola n shopkeepers suggest that don install as it would stuck in front but my friend did so;
    but still i recommend 205/70/15 that will be perfect n ur grande will realy look great with less distance with fender n rear tire try it

    Koi suspension nai kharab hoti if you keep the tyre diameter same.. original size is 195/65/R15 which is 635mm.. fuel economy is not affected by rim size, it is affected by width of tyre.. any thing above 195 will reduce fuel economy unless the better brand has less rolling resistance than General tyres (no way to find out with out actual trial)..
    if you can afford 17" rims n low profile tyre then go with it or get 16", warna original 15" wala hi use karlo..

    these sizes wont affect the suspension:
    205/50/R17
    225/45/R17 (this will reduce fuel efficiency)
    205/55/R16
    225/50/R16 (this will reduce fuel efficiency)
