Hi

195/60 R15 will be the ideal upgrade to the honda city.It will improve handling and performance.

Yes u can install alloys on the existing tyres.

If u are upgrading the tyre i would suugest u go for Michelin Primary LC.

Michelin Primary LC 195/60/R15 will cost u around Rs 5350(this is give a idea about prices) with bill.

Deep,

PLEASE do not quote the preceding post.  It's NOT required.  This has been brought to your notice several times (as in case of post 3 above) - have a look at your 3 posts here & a request made here & here again.

PLEASE take care. Thanks.

Upsizing the tyre would not affect/improve the ground clearance (upsizing the wheel would).
