Hi Bro - no issue to use 225/60/17 on XV.

I am using it - a smaller gap in the rear wheel.

Price difference is only a couple of dollars difference.

Thanks for sharing.

Do you feel more comfortable with the 'thicker' tire?

not bumpier... thats for thinner tyre sidewall...


thicker tyre means a bit more floaty feel during cornering or sudden direction change...

You mean wider? It will tend to aqua planning during heavy rain unless the design has more groove to channel water.

Not much difference - should be more comfortable in term of ride.
As my tyre pressure remain the same.

My experience was that I felt a bit sluggish on acceleration. It is because of more moment of inertia.

my last research on US forum (Google our car model, 60 profile tire size & the word "rub") there could be some rubbing at some rare extreme situation like 4 person in the car or hard bump.

the clearance on the old XV seems to be much smaller compared to new XV..

at the end i drop the idea for now for better to be safe than sorry. our tire size are not cheap

Well, i thought so which is why I dropped that idea too! Thanks for sharing.

Just hope that more brand with that size to be available in our market soon.

Wider=increase aqua planning?

But a lot of sport cars and big SUV use wide tires.

The sport car is designed for dry condition. the SUV is not designed for speed laugh.gif

The F1 car need to change from slick to wet tire when rain. Tire design for wet surface if used in dry condition will have less grip. So, it is trade in between wet and dry is thread design. In general, wider tires need to have more water channeling groves to reduce chance of aqua planning.
