      Creta tyre upgrade

      I am booking a Creta and I am planning to go for a tyre upgrade since it comes with 16 inch tyres in lower models, I am planning for 17 inch alloys with a fat section width where 265-65/r17 is what I feel in my budget. I am curious if this will fit fine in creta as the section size is almost 60mm wider than the 17inch offering by company in higher models(205-65/r17) Any gurus please letme know if this is perfect or what should i choose. I am afraid if this will create any problem in wheel wells or any kind of such issue? 60mm is roughly 2.2 inches.

      That is not a correct upsize.
      Please see below link for reference. Use same tool or similar ones to know about proper upsize for your car tire.

      Congrats for new car.

      Before up sizing the tyres; check with Hyundai for car's warranty terms. up-sizing the rims and tyres might void your car's warranty.

      PS: 265 will be too wide for Creta. Even Safari, with tyre size 255 and above runs with very heavy steering.

      Do you want to upsize a tyre within the laws of physics or just make it look like a tractor or a truck?

      The correct upsizes for the 205/65/17 are 225/60/17 or 225/55/17 or 235/55/17 or 245/55/17 or or 265/50/17.

      Personally wouldn't recommend going above 245s as it will terribly slow the car down.

      I upgraded to 225/55/R17 and its just perfect, tyre doesnt scrap.


      Check below link to figure why or why not 265/65/R17 makes sense

      I would say its a downgrade. If it fits your car you will get heavier steering and the car will be more prone to aquaplaning. You will also burn more fuel.

      Well then I believe its wise to go for 225 section width since its being utilised by fellow buddy abhi99.
      While comparing with storme with 255 section tyres and a heavy feel, maybe its because storme is 2000kg (140BHP) and creta(126BHP) is merely 1330kg kerb.

      Well yes I am a farmer actually so tractor looks are what I have been craving for long.

      Hi net, I am little late since I just came across your thread. But I own a Creta too and I went from 205/65 R16 Good Year tires to 235/60 R16 Continental tires. The car looks great and you can check some pictures out here: ICE upgrade for the Hyundai Creta

      I only wanted to get this particular alloy, with main motive of increasing the tyre grip with road surface because I used have a airy feeling while pushing the car at higher speeds. The said upgrade size inspires confidence now in taking corners and higher speeds too. Just my 2 cents. Good luck and hope this helps.

      I don't think that it is possible from the dealership end. However, you can get your tyres and rims adjusted for the desired ones with any aftermarket tyre dealer of your choice. He will be able to buyback the current ones and get you new ones after adjusting price of old set. I have a Creta Diesel automatic which came with 16" rims which I sold off against my new set with an aftermarket tyre dealer in order to get new rims and tyres both. Just keep in mind not to drive your car more than 100 kms if you want a tyre dealer to buyback them at maximum price. YMMV in this case.
