Few owners I know have shifted to Yokohama Geolander AT's in this size after the Dunlops gave away after 70,000 kms of usage. Most appear happy with the tire.

It is a shame that Latitudes aren't available, IMO, it is worth it. One may also try Pirelli Scorpion ATR's.

6/7 months isn't a significant storage time, please do check upon the date of manufacturing.

The date of manufacturing of the set of Michelin Lattitude Cross XLs I am being offered is week 42 of 2015, so about 6 months old. Hence the dilemma. In fact, the local dealer told me that for these imported tires coming from Thailand, there will always be a lag of few months and hence 6 months would be normal.

Is this really true ?

Importing stuff does take time, more so when they are commercial and in bulk.

OTOH, I honestly do not think, a 6 month tire should not be used, I would raise an eye brow if it was over an year old and throw a fit & not mount if it was over 18 months, but 6 months is ok IMHO.

Hi All

I m planning to renew the OE DUNLOP tyre (JAPAN made) on my fortuner today as i have a highway run tomorrow.
The DUNLOP has really given great trouble free service, 90 k!!! It still can go more but i don't want to take any risks considering age of tyre so decided to renew it.
Reading the threads i see most have recommended the MICHELIN LATITUDE CROSS.
How is the road noise with MICHELIN?
I saw one comment saying they are more silent than OE.
Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks

Yeah, I got similar opinions on other threads as well. So, I decided on the 6 month old Michelin Lattitude Cross XLs. I will be checking them out tomorrow before buying and fitting them.

Based on what I have read, it seems Michelin Latitude Cross tires are a bit more comfortable in ride quality and noise is pretty much the same. Since my usage is primarily on-road and very occasionally off-road, this seemed fine for me. For off-road use, I have seen people speak highly of Continental ATs.

On the tire life front,the scorpion AT/R is at par with the dunlop's. I have seen more than 3 fortuners that have clocked upwards of 70,000 kms on the Pirelli's.

V-16 and Benzbala, need your feedback on the Michelin Latitude Cross. How many kilometers have you put on those tires and how are they holding up.
Ahmed has asked me to look for latitude this time since the time has come to change my second set.
I have put more than a 100,000 kms on the Made in Japan Duns and I'm very happy.
I would blindly go in for the Duns but wanting a supple and low noise tires this time.
Thanks

If you want I can find out for you in Mumbai.

In fact I've done approx 8000 kms already and have had no issue. Mind u they are ATs and most ATs come with reduced brake control and tyre noise. Thankfully this tyre here is no issues. I'd blindly recommend the Michelins

Michelin latitude cross tires are now available. I bought mine 2 weeks ago here in Bangalore. They were manufactured in week 7 2016. My first impression is that they offer a softer ride than the original Dunlop. Haven't tested them on a highway or offroad ride yet. Pretty good on really bad bumpy roads here. Overall I am happy so far.

Guys, my tyre store recommended me to up size my fortuner to 275/65/ R17 Yokohama shoes. It is right now on its OE Dunlop 265/65/R17 @ 70000 km. Could stretch for another 5000 to 8000 km easily on the existing footwear but the ride is mighty disappointing. The additional thickness of new tyres should help a bit....but how much will the 275 help as against 265 ?

Hi BHPians! I'm upsizing the wheels on my new 2017 Fortuner (2.8 AT 4X4). I decided to go for 20" wheels from Lenso (photos attached).

Could someone please help me find the right tyres, considering the fact that the offset of the wheels purchased is +10mm compared to OE's +30mm? Appreciate so much if you could suggest a few brands as well.


OE: 265/65 R18 x 7.5 ET30 (Tyre brand: Bridgestone Dueler H/T category)

Upsize options:
1. 265/55 R20 x 9 ET10
2. 275/55 R20 x 9 ET10
3. 285/50 R20 x 9 ET10

If any other options is possible, please suggest! Thank you.

Won't recommend such a size. I have on similar on X6 in past and had many ruptures. Instead, go for a larger profile on your stock OE rims like 280x60x18 which is a standard size for LandCruiser.

Correction ^

OE Tyre size for the New Fortuner 4x4 is 265/60 R18

265/50 R20 is the one to pick as TRD Sportivo Fortuner has the same size in 20"

So if you want a thicker profile on 20" it may / may not scrub, or you will have to install a lift kit.

Correction here as well, the Land Cruiser size is 285/60 R18

Yes, error at my part. I have same on my Endeavour, though I would have preferred 285x65x18 which unfortunately were not available anywhere.

Are you recommending going for size 20"? Apart from aesthetic reasons, I can't think of anything useful by going to such large dia.

But if Varshi finally goes ahead, my suggestion will be not to return his original tyres & alloys. He will need these back sooner than expected from my experience.

Im not recommending/encouraging him to go in for 20s, just recommended the correct tyre size (265/50 R20) if he upgrades

On 2nd thought he can also try 285/50 R20, not too sure about if it will stay clear of the wheel well / bumper but he can try.
