Default Toyota Innova Crysta : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

Upgraded Bridgestone B390 205/65/16 to Michelin Primacy SUV 215/65/16. Diameter variance is 1.93% I want the wheel well to look more filled up and also prefer additional sidewall height for the roads i drive on, thus opted for this size.

Wow, that's a 2.6% higher diameter than even the ZX's 215/55 R17 size. Hows the clearance on full lock?

Never heard of the Primacy SUV before. Grey market? How much was the difference you paid?

No issues on full lock, it clears everything with gap to spare.

ZX's 215/55/17 tyre diameter is smaller than the stock GX or VX which comes with 205/65/16. Compared to stock tyre in my GX the variance is only 1.93%.

I havent heard about these tyres before, hope they serve well keeping in mind the fact that Michelin developed this for asiapacific region. I bought them from a Michelin dealer. Paid 31k after exchange.

I did a Tvm - Blore - Tvm drive this weekend in the van and the drive was awesome. The tyres are really good and offered great road grip with improved braking performance. I cannot comment on wet performance as the conditions were mostly dry during this trip. The tyre noise was very minimal, not enough to be noticed on Innova.

Hello Sankar,

The upgrade looks nice on the Crysta If possible please do share some more pictures from other angles just to get a feel of how the vehicle looks with the wider tyres!!
