Based on mannual I read Innova stock RIM width is 6inches since its stock tyre is 205/65 R15. We can fit 225/60 R15 on same stock RIM fine. V-16 has already has this same set up. Even on 6.5inch or 7inch width RIM we can fit 205/65 R 15 and 225/60 R 15 I feel, won't make much difference.

Regards,

Ravi.

Talked with tyre dealer..

He suggest me to get either 225/60R15 Michelin energy Mxv8 for 6500 Or 235/60R15 Pirelli Sport for 6100.

Which option should i have to go for ?

Dont go for the Pirelli. Ride quality will get affected!
on the tire rack index for ride comfort energy gets 8.0 and sport gets 7.2, so!!?? and already 225 is enough grip.
even the Bridgestone Turanza LS-H is very good. id they are available.

MXV8 225/60 R 15 Michellin is more than enough for Innova. You can buy Bridgestone with 225/60 R 15, couple of months back when I asked rates I remember for MXV8 225/60 R 15 Michellin is 6500/- and MXV8 205/65 R 15 Michellin is 5500/- . So rates your tyre wala quoted is right. Its good deal I feel unless tyre experts here know latest rates

Regards,

Ravi.

I can feel the less tyre noise, Better grip and smooth steering after upgrading from Hankook 225/60R15 to 205/65R15 Michelin Energy XM1.
