If you guys want them here, send a tire full of VAT69 and They'll be here any moment.

Use PM to find out anything directly from a fellow member.

When I checked with shops i know they recommand either Bridgestone Turanza or Michellin with 225/60 R 15 prfiile on 6.5 inch RIM. This works efficiently in Innova. However RIM width an be between 6 and 7 inch.

They told me 225 profile will give better grip and comfort and with 205 one can notice less noise and no change in FE.

I still don't have budget to upgrade my tyres and RIMS/Alloys so waiting for it. in Bangalore VahanYatra I have baught K&N stock replacement filter for 5.5k. My next goal is to upgrade tyres.

I suggest buy either bridgestone or Michellin.

Regards,

Ravi.

this tyre look bigger than it really is. The tyre also weighs much more than the potenza/energy xm1 for some reason may be because of the rim protector belt in the sidewall

vid6639 has Turanza ER60 in his lancer and here's the review that he posted on some other thread.
Quote:
The tyres are pretty ok. The ride is nice and soft. The handling is not too bad compared to my older potenza RE88's. The tyres are very heavy and the side beading stone protector makes them look huge.

Tyre noise has gone up a little after one year but need to see if it's tyre noise or wheel bearings.

I would suggest go for these if you go over really bad roads as they can take a lot of beating. For normal city roads the Michelin Energy's are a better buy.

Mileage has gone done by 1.5kmpl since they are heavier and an upsize as well.

Would rate it 7/10.

No Akshay the AVS series has been discontinued. And there are no other options in 225/60 R15 apart from MXV8.

205/65 R15 you can get Yoko A300 or XM1 or MXV8

Thanks KP, Thats doesnot seem to be good news, i was getting the Turanza dirt cheap. I guess its worth paying the premium for the Michelins.

Any other tyres in 225/60/15

Just a change the noise was the wheel bearings and not the tyres.

If the car is to be driven on poor/bad roads the Turanzas are an excellent option. Only thing is that they are not available in the Innova's size.

The G-III are performance tyres and for an SUV I don't think they will be advantageous. The best would be the Michelin MXV8.

the noise is not the wheel bearings.. i know that much vid yaar. . u cant hear any noise on tar but on concrete you definitely can. i know this is with all tyres but the g3s have more noise than i would like. also i have them on my innova and havent had any probs with them.
