Smile Best tyres for 2007 CR-V

Guys,can you suggest me the best set of tyres for the CR-V?The stock tyres are really bad and have very bad traction.The Goodyear Fortera Triple Tread is said to be the best all season highway terrain tyres,but I am not sure if I can get it in India.The size is 225/65 R17.

If you are looking for highway terrain tyres, Michelin Latitude rage will be good deal.

Since you are upgrading, i'd suggest you get a tyre thats a little softer to enhance the suspension. I found the new CR-V suspension to be just about acceptable, it could definatly do with a little help from softer tyres.
Maybe you could upsize the width for better traction?

The Michelin Latitude Tour HP seems good but the size is a problem.The closest fit is 265/65R17 .

The only option you have available in India with B&W would be the Michelin Latitude series in the stock size. No upsize options are available officially.

Yes they are available but not in your size. If you want Highway tyres the Latitude's would be your best bet since they are on-road optimised rather than off-road optimised.
