Translates to the following immediate benefits to customers:

- Reduced cost of tyre replacements
- Easier availability and more tyre brands and offerings to choose from

Re: Mahindra XUV300 : Official Review

Having 17 inch alloy for XUV300 and XUV500 and XUV700 didn't sit well with me. This is a welcome move. But why does it have to be 205/65 and not 215/60? This is the default size of almost all the competitors in their top end variants.

Congratz for the new car. 300 definitely looks best in white. Please share more on your experience with this combo of turbo petrol & amt. Hows the car in daily urban usage and hows the fuel efficiency?

I have tried this unfortunately, and the 17" 215/55 wheel only fits with the boot floor set to the upper position. Meaning any time you have one of the main tyres swapped out with the spare, you lose about 30% of boot capacity.

The ride quality will certainly improve, especially over patchy roads like we have.

Re: Mahindra XUV300 : Official Review

These new R16 alloys are 6J or 6.5J I wonder given the 205mm I think its 6J which would mean stuffing 215's would not be great but if its 6.5J then its doable. Tata has done some crazy things in my opinion with Harrier "6.5J with 235mm" I just hope Mahindra has not learned the same from them.

EDIT: Regarding the alloys design why are car makers going towards Y shape with the Seltos XLine, VW Taigun, Etc getting a similar Y'ish design.

These 11 piece actually should've been 13 piece set IMO. Try fitting the long mats on the rear door pockets, they will fit perfectly! The front ones don't have the pocket mat! Only the cup holders gets it for all 4 doors. Maybe you can use the door pocket ones in either of 2 doors, not on all 4 - which is ridiculous!

Re: Mahindra XUV300 : Official Review

Though I am not a fan of the new alloy design, R16 is unquestionably a better option for our roads.

Hey ashishk29, as a generic statement, that doesn't sound quite right. Mine is a Dec. 2019 W8 model that came with a 215/55 R17 steel rim spare. I've never had a problem adjusting the boot floor to a lower position. Are you using an OE rim?

Yes, I am on the OEM diamond cut 17" wheels. I tried setting the floor on the low but it would not with the 17" wheel in there.

How plausible is it that they made the wheel well smaller because the 2020 onwards get a 16" 205/60 spare on all variants? To maybe add a couple of millimeters to the boot perhaps?
If you think about it, it would make sense that a 215 tyre doesn't fit in the space designed for a 205 tyre. But I cannot confirm whether the wheel well is indeed changed. Could be confirmed if we could measure up the depth of the well between a 2019 and a 2020+ car maybe.

Thanks, iv only driven the car a couple of times as its primarily used by my wife. For me the performance was adequate, yes there is a lag initially but the car pulls ahead easily afterwards. Madam is enjoying the comfort of an auto car in her daily office commute. Attaching the fuel economy figures i noticed.

Oh, you mean your spare is also alloy? Mine is 17" steel with a fitting that looks like this.

No no. My spare is a 16" 205/60 steel wheel.

What I meant was, a couple of months back I lost one of my tyres to a bad pothole, and had to swap it with the spare. So the spare was fit on the car, and the 17" DC one had to be kept in place of the spare. This is when I could not fit the main tyre in the boot without raising the boot floor to the upper setting.

Can someone ask them to change this Cheeta type DRL element flowing from the headlamp to the fog lamp please. And make the front bumper portion a little more rounded. This Cheeta DRL doesn't suit to middle aged working people like us. It's too much funky and probably okay for younger gen. But some people need a sober design.
