Innova Crysta tyre size and issues

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Many of us are probably familiar with the 17 inch tyre burst problems faced by new Innova Crysta 2.8 Z Automatic model.  Toyota also desized the tyre to 16 inch from 17 inch for a few months in early 17. Again they are back with 17 inch version on recent 2.8Z touring model (with stiffer side wall)

Its a hanging sword on heads of people like me who have bought Crysta 2.8 Z in late 16 early 17 .. with 17 inch alloy wheels.

Surprizingly for me. I just checked bridgestone India website for Innova crysta. In (selcltion by vehicle) section,  they now recommend Turanza001 225/55-R17 tyre? (Instead of earlier 215/55-R17)

Any information with anybody?

Hi Nitin,

Yes, even I have heard few people who own Innova Crysta Z variants changing their car's tyre from 215/55 R17 to 225/55 R17.

Reason is "increase in sidewall height" which is crucial for Indian road conditions (though this might lead to odometer/speedometer error due to change in overall tyre circumference).

Take a look at sidewall height below:

215/55 R17: 118.25 mm

225/55 R17: 123.75 mm

205/65 R16: 133.25 mm

So from above list you can clearly see that R16 tyres are best bet when it comes to sidewall height followed by 225/55 R17 ones.

Although Toyota now says that they have resolved issue of 215/55 R17 tyre bursting and hence have reintroduced the same again but I still feel it's better to keep a check and upgrade if necessary.
