C Drives are available only in the Innova upsize. i.e 225/60 R15. You will not get them for your Baleno.

What is the expected resale value for the stock bridgestones that come with the innova in exchange, say, for a set of yokohoma c drives?

For the Innova, I paid abt 1700 / tire to exchange my OEM Bridgestones (205/65R15) for 226/60R15 Yoko C.Drives.

Hi. I'm tempted to buy a Yoko tyre for my Innova (G diesel). Tyre dealer in Delhi says only 225s are available, not 205. He says 225 tyres are terrific, but Toyota's service adviser in Delhi says 225 tyres in Innova are bad for wheel alignment. He suggests that I use Bridgestone/Goodyear and get them changed only at the Toyota authorised service station, which gets tyres directly from tyre manufacturers. I'm confused. Can you help please.

that is absolute nonsense he is telling you. please go right ahead and get the 225/60 r15 yokohama c drive tyres. they wont disappoint you. the ride will improve and you will find it more silent also the grip improves.

I just wanted to add that after 7K of driving in my Innova, I realise that my Yoko C. Drives (225/60R15) while being extremely silent, are very sensitive to tire pressure. Anything above 32psi and the ride becomes bumpy. Around 30psi is what I find the most comfortable. A bit surprising..knowing that Toyota recommends 32 psi on the OEM size

It's not due to the tyre. It's the size. Generally, as you upsize, you need to decrease the pressure slightly.

Got new tyres today at Ashoka Wheels, Minister road, Hyd.
Primacy LC was Rs.7400/- and C-drives Rs.5560/-. So went ahead with Yoko and saved around 10k. IMO Yoko looked better.
I was also told that the price for C-drives would go up by 15%. I don't know if its true but guys if you are looking to upgrade/change, do it now.
Will there be any problem running C-drives on stock rims?

No problems running on stock rims if it is 205/65 R15. If it is 225/60R15, I hope you have alloys. There is no price increase on the C drives.... Prices of almost all Yoko tyres went up by about 5% recently(effective from 1st Feb 2010).

It's 225/60R15 on stock rims. Should I purchase alloys too.

It's advisable you get alloys... Steel rims are usually quite narrow. Co0uld you find out and tell me what the width of the OEM steel rims are?

I think it should be 15x6j.

I think the Innova steel rim is a tad too thin for 225's, stock alloys are fine though since they're half an inch broader in width.
