    Wider tires will also consume more fuel.

    I actually observed this with my car. Stock was 175/70/14 (dia. 602 mm), upped to 185/70/14 (dia. 616 mm). FC worsened initially. Still w/in the 3% advised. Used to ave. 5.3-5.5 L/100, immediately down to 5.7-6. I think it's the effort to roll the bigger tire from a stop.

    I see. Thats the effect of bigger tire. Maybe dahil mas mabigat? Or mas mahirap e roll?

    Pero more grip on the road. Means more safe?

    Wider tires will be able to provide more grip when cornering and stopping (assuming the brake system can handle it).

    My stock rims, 17x7.5J ( I have no idea what 7.5J means, is it 7.5 inches??)

    currently on stock rubber, 205/50/17.

    How much wider can I widen the rubber (if that's possible) or do I have to upgrade to wider rims too just for the little widening?

    Currently very happy with my Continental CP2E. What would be better but not significantly more expensive? I like the grip of the Continental especially in wet but the noise is just bothering me esp on imperfect/unpaved roads. On fresh, properly done tarmac though, it's very quiet.

    7.5j is the width of the rim. You can go 215/45 if you want but for me the stock tyre size is enough. Going wider would risk you to have a rubbing problem especially if you lower the car.

    For 17x7.5, you can go with as wide as 235mm. To keep about the same wheel & tire dimensions as your stock setup, you can try 225/45/17 or 235/45/17. I suggest 225/45/17 as going for 235/45/17 may cause some rubbing due to the offset of the wheels. If you want to lower the car, go with a smaller tire like the 215/45/17. I used to run 225/45/17 on 17x7J rims (42 offset, I think) with my old 6th gen Accord on stock suspension height with no rubbing.

    For the tires, you may want to try Bridgestone's GR series (GR90 current model). They offer good overall performance for a touring tire - decent wet & dry grip, not noisy at triple digit speeds. For sports tires like Potenza, they are noisier but offer better grip.
