New tyre for Avensis

Recommended Posts

I have just purchased a second hand 2005 Avensis Ultima (ACM21R) to replace my ZZE122R as I need a bigger car however the original no-frills tyres literally has no grip on wet road so I was thinking to get some decent tyres for it but none. It just seems like no one is making a decent 205/60/R16 tyre so my question is, can i do a plus zero (225/55/R16) on the factory alloy wheels? That way I can get either Sportmaxx TT/RT or RE003.

A 225 is probably slightly too wide. A 215 would be a better width and not so baloony.

but the speedo will be incorrect if i change it to 215...

215/55/16 is only 1.5% off a 205/60/16, not enough to be an issue.

So in that case I can actually go with SportMaxx RT 215/55/R16 on the factory alloy.. nice. Hope that will go well with the new TRD suspension kit :smile:
