Which tyres would be best for my Volkswagen Polo for smooth drive? I have Michelin and Bridgestone in my mind. Can I upgrade my tyres size from 185.60.R15 to 185.65.R15? Please advice.

In my opinion, the best tubeless tyres for Volkswagen Polo would be the ones from Bridgestone or Michelin, they cushion the ride very well, offer decent grip and don’t lose traction quickly.
Talking about the upsizing tyre size from 185.60.R15 to 185.65.R15, I won’t advise you for it as it would not be suitable for your car. This new tyre size would be far away from the company fitted tyre size. There are many disadvantages of upsizing the tyres with more than the recommended size like the steering may become harder, reduced fuel efficiency, suspension will not be able to soak up bumps as efficiently as earlier, the speedometer reading will not be accurate, tyres will lead to early wear and if the wheel wells do not have sufficient space, tyres would scrape against the car’s body.
