I recently had to change my tyres in my 2016 Octavia which had Michelin Primacy 3ST tyres that had run almost 55k km and still had good tread left. But, had to replace as it was more than 6 years old now and had developed some cracks on the surface. I searched a lot for Michelin Tyres but could not get them. Eventually, I had to go for another brand and got Bridgestone Sturdo Tyres in the stock size(205/55/16). I am extremely happy with the ride and handling and also the road noise with these tyres. I have almost covered 7000km on the new tyres. The tyres also come with unconditional warranty.
So, if you are not able to procure Michelins, you may try Bridgestone Sturdo also. I will recommend it over Yokohama or any other tyre because of unconditional warranty and better service in case of any issues.

Hi, did you change wheel rims also? Or 235 section tyres were fitted on stock wheel rim?

My stock wheel rim size is 6.5J and stock tyres are 215/60/r17. I was told that fitment of 235/55/r17 tyres will not be possible on stock wheel rim. At least 7.5j rim width will be required for 235/55/r17 .

Can you please share your experience on wheel rim width.
