If comfort is priority get MXV8 225/60 R 15 in Bangalore costing around 6,600/- stock Innova 205/65 R15 size MXV8 would cost 800/- less.

As per I know XM1 would be 800/- cheaper than MXV8.

On Stock Alloys you can fit 225/60 R 15 although they are 6inch width. Ideal width is 6.5 or 7 inch however.

Regards,

Ravi.

Default Alloys for Innova

I checked and found 225/60 R 15 fits best on 6.5 inch alloys. so If you upsize the tyres to 225 its better to buy alloys which suits for Innova with right specifications (ET 45, PCD 114 I guess with 5 holes). I feel alloys suiting Innova comes with at least 7 inch width. So make sure you buy right Alloy which suits tyre profile.

I guess these Alloys suite for Innova well. Its difficult to find out which suits best, Guys any feedback greatly appreciated.

Thanks for all your help. got the mxv8s at 5.3k a piece on the stock rims. paid 27.5k in total for 5 tyres, a puncture repair kit, wheel alignment balancing and tips ( ). Will write a short review after a couple of thousand kms. Thanks again.

EDIT: No alloys for this innova.

I heard few people fitting 17 inch tyres for Innova in Bangalore, but I strictly advise stick to maximum 225/60 R15 for Innova. This vehicle is for family mover rather than sporty avatar however its personal taste and your can definately try 18 inch from good tyre shop. Please make sure choose right Alloys and tyres which suits the technical specification.

Regards,

Ravi.

you definitely can in 225/40 r18. though i dunno how many tyres are available in that size.

i havent seen an innova with 18s but i have seen a couple with 17s and they look hot. in 17s you can try 225/45 r17 or 225/50 r17.

keep us updated.

Hi.

My Innova has done about 20K and in another 7K I will be considering changing tyres. I had seen a tyre size spreadsheet posted in one of these threads (an extremely useful one, cant thank the owner enough) and in that the biggest size listed for the Innova was 255-50-R17, and hence I had pretty much decided on this size. The reasons are simple. I like the vehicles handling and braking at speeds less than about 90-100 Km/Hr but if you go much higher than that neither the brakes, nor the roadholding feels convincing. I was kind of hoping that this upgrade would make dramatic improvements to these, tho I know I would loose some of the currently excellent ride comfort. Moreover, however much I love almost all aspects of the vehicle, looks arent it's strong point, and I believe this would improve on that too a little bit. But now I find Ravibhat strictly recommending nothing more than 225-60-R15. Any reason that I am possibly ignorant of?

Also can anyone provide an idea roughly how much the FE would be impacted? An educated guess?

Thanks
Hari Sankar

get 225/45 r17. i think youll get s-drives in that. dont worry anymore about handling or braking at any speeds. the ride would go down a bit and youd have to slow down for potholes etc. i really dont think your fe would go down by more than 1.
