    Most of the Passo came in PK have 13 inch rim. If your passo is original 13 inch rim, then the best ideal would be 185/70/13. You can find this size in Michaline or Yokohama.
    Passo is slightly more in width, hence 185 mm tires will look much more nice than other sizes. Rest is your choice.

    Is 70 height enough for passo?

    I mean to give it little bit more ground clearance if we put 80 height tire?

    If you can find Michelline Tire Energy XM2 in this size, then you will see its perfectly ideal tire for 13 inch rim and for Passo.
    This tire is very flexible and works like “mini shock” if air pressure is 28 psi.
    I have it exactly in past, that’s why am sure about it.
    Usually now when I see Passo’s with small tires like 155 or 165 mm, these are OK and very much fuel saving too. But frankly not good for PK roads. Grip of 185 mm michaline was awesome and I didn’t have the puncture for more than an year though my way was very rough. You can latterly bend this tire like “I” shape. So flexible, so comfortable.

    (80 height tire is not available in 185mm)

    Generally the following two brands are excellent and rated at the top:

    1) Michellin
    2) Bridgestone

    You can purchase and install them for best results.

    You should purchase tires with manufacturing date not more than 6 months.

    Birdgstone’s 185mm is not as good as like Yokohama (made in Japan or Indonesia) or Micheline (Made in Europe only).
    But other sizes 175mm, 165mm, of birgdstone are really v. good quality tires.
    And it was my personal observation/experience.

    If the purpose is to get best fuel average, then one should chose the small sizes like 155mm and should drive slow. Because small tires has less road grips.
    Using 185mm tires in 13 inch rim will not give better fuel economy. But you can enjoy its grip and mini shock like behavior.

    Road grip is even gr8 on its original tires which came from japan
    They are 155/80/r13 and the company is sincera

    I just want to give it little bit more ground clearance and width and these tires are bit hard for pak roads.

    Correct me if i am wrong but i think i can't go over 80 hight without changing rims?

    Frankly 80 height seems quite much for 13 inch rim.
    Tire won’t be very stable in 13 inch dia if 80 height tire is fit in.
    You are right. Then have to change the rim. But don’t go for changing rim unless highly necessary. Because original company fitted settings are best & seems ideal.

    You are very right, only if 5 adults are setting in the car then it touches on speed breaker. Other wise no issue so far

    So i think it is better to keep same height but go for 175 width as it will improve looks and grip

    if your car originally came with 13 inch rim and you will install 14 inch in it with wider tires, then i will say... you will simply miss the charm of driving passo.

    Studying for tires for Passo 2012. Does this size 185/70/13 will increase ground clearance as well ?
    I like this size but reluctant to opt it due to any suspension issues in future.

    Studying for tires for Passo 2012. Does this size 185/70/13 will increase ground clearance as well ?
    I like this size but reluctant to opt it due to any suspension issues in future.
    Frankly, my experience with Michiline Energy XM2 (made in UK) was perfectly superb. 8 out of 10 people whom I met during that time, had surely asked me about the nice looking tires. Never had any issue regarding ground clearance. I usually travel 20~25K in one year. Never had any issues.
    But if someone opt sizes like 195/70 or 195/65 or 195/60 etc., then certainly the ground clearance would be an issue for passo with 13inch rim. But till 185, its leisure & pleasure.
