You want to go taller?

possibly the wider portion of it yes.

But more rotating mass wouldn't really help with speed performance. Heck may not even be noticable.
Then agian I'm getting some 16's on pretty soon.

Not looking for a speed boost maybe some better handling but really thinking about the visual aspect of it..

That's why I wanted to see a pic and see if it looks much different.....

The performance benefits of running a wider tire size on the stock 14x5.5" wheels are negligible at best.

I would stick with the stock 175/65/14 or 185/65/14 size depending on what model Corolla you have.

They only way to reliably increase the contact patch of the car is to get wider aftermarket wheels in a +1 or +2 sizing, then depending on what width you choose, get a wider tire to accommodate the wheel.

Hmmmm.... well I guess I need to revise my question now:

What wheel and tire size would look good on a stock height non-lowered Corolla? Keeping in mind the image above...
