good pics, thanks. Like the one next to the Innova - helps to get a sense of the size.
I have a feeling the big T is launching a mid-range variant close to 20 and when they have the factory capacity to launch more variants we'll get a more expensive AT and a cheaper 4X2, manual - like the Endeavor range. It seems the model Toyota is launching is aimed at the Endeavor Thunder+ market.

Wow it looks big!
Innova is looking like a kid when it is quiet big one itself.
I really feel this one is gonna be a hit here.

The Fortuner looks like it could eat a CRV for breakfast and a Captiva for lunch! I won't be too happy if I see something like this tailgating me.

folks. Would 20 inch alloys be ok with this. Mostly city driven but occasional trips to country roads.

What for?? No need. If I buy then I would throw away these tyres and get some real cool 275.70 R17 AT tyres. Alloys are OK.

I saw a youtube video (forgot the link) and it looked cool. White fortuner with white alloys having red edges. Yummy !! Have started search for my alloys but guess it would take some time. Then put a racechip (210 ps) with green filters and you have a fun machine !!

i like that way you think. i think 20s would be overkill, 19s will be fine.

Wow never thought that way.. I was thinking in offroad sense only. That would look cool. See if you can find that video again. If you use big rim and use low profile tyres where the combination increase the height in such a manner that it doesnt rub the walls then its ok. It would need some calculations, which our experts can tell.
