I Want To Buy New Tyres - HELP by rottenPussy: 2:16am On Dec 09, 2018
I got my 04 camry about 3months ago, and now I feel the need to change the tyres. Being my first attempt at changing tyres, I need hints on what to lookout for.

Also, what tyre size is best for such car cos the car has poor land clearance (It easily do hit the ground on bad roads. Should I just raise the spring or buy bigger tyres?

No matter what you do, don't raise the springs.
You can simply change to bigger tires. What size are your current tires?

You can change the tires to 225/65R15 That's if you wanna retain your current rim.

no, I'm buying another rim (alloy this time). I just want to achieve a good land clearance for the car.

That's better.
I use 215/65R16. Gives me better ground clearance.

Meanwhile, Maxis make good tires, if you are looking for something strong and affordable.

Other brands are Michelin, Continental, Yokohama, Nokian... etc etc... These aren't cheap though.

225/65/R15 has the same height as the op's 205/65/R15. The only difference is that 225 is wider but not taller. The middle numbers are the one that determine the tire profile.

Not entirely correct sir
the 65 means 65% of 225mm or 205mm, so you can do the maths
a 195/70/R15 has a lower overall height to a 225/65/R15
