If you want to raise the ground clearance, bigger tyres will help for sure but with the bigger tyres you also have to tune the suspension of your car. 1. You can use a spacers under the coil spring or can use longer coil springs, it will help you to increase the ground clearance. 2. You can also re-camber the coil springs, try to give accurate angle to the leaf suspension and you can also add additional leaf to increase ground clearance. But as you said you have SX4, you will find torsion beam at rear. These are usually adjustable and can be used to increase ground clearance by a small margin, a small adjustment won't affect ride quality too much. You can also post your query at forum.cardekho.com, where fellow forum members can help you further.
