i think it is not practical going so low on a SUV unless you want it to be a total show car. the car becomes just a street car not capable of any offroading. the wheel design also is not that great and i am sure comfort and ride quality is being sacrificed here, but who am i to complain as long as the owner likes it.

The New CRV in stock comes with 17inchers.

The endeavour on post 1 is a 15inch to a 20 inch upgrade.

hey kpzen nice pictures.
i have seen a CRV with 19 or 20 inch wheels in bombay and the car looked nice but everything else must have been really uncomfortable. the honda crv with 17 inch wheels looks good and i am sure it must be nice to drive with no loss in ride quality and comfort.
the tucson does look good with the 18 inchers sufficiant rubber there, but dont know how good it would be in the dirt.

busa the new CRV does come with 225/65/R17 size tyre and the older ones i think came with 15 inch. the car in question is the older lot so it would be an upgrade from 15 to 17 inches. please do correct me if i am wrong.

hey guys this car belonged to a model turned actor..a very famous one..don wanna take his name.i know the person from whom he got those alloys fitted. the mechanics review is that the car looks good but the ride is very bad as the streets of mumbai ask for more rubber.any ways the car has changed hands and the model turned actor has got a 2 door BMW now.

with kpzen here busa. i have the first shape of the CRV and i remembered it being 15 inchers and not 16 inches. this is the same shape so i guessed it would be the same.
so the CRV has gone from 15" to 17" and not 17" to 17" or 16" to 17".

Correction

Old CRV - 205/70-15
Old CRV Type @ MMC - 215/65/16
New CRV - 225/65-17

So it went upsized one by one and not directly from 15 to 16 and now 17.
