I have bought a VW Passat b7 Variant. 1.6D. It came with (all four tyres) following size: 215/55 - 16.
In the vehicle booklet, it says 195/60 R16.
I a bit confused here. I have seen many other same Passats on the road with smaller diameter tyres. Following the logic, my 215 diameter boils down to this: - Looks better - Consumes more fuel
Is there any other advantage, besides looks better? Should I go for 195/55?
PS I guess, now is a bit too late to change it, since I bought Dunlop SportsMaxx RT as a Summer tyres for my car. Price was extremely good, that is why.
But, I would like to know more information.
