If you want a little extra sidewall, why not just upsize the tires a bit?Just wanted to create a thread to share my experience and seek a bit of advice as well.
Stock wheels are 215/55R17. Looking to go 215/65R16 Michelin CrossClimate 2
Looks like I'll be adding 0.7" to the overall diameter (slightly wider contact) and increasing the sidewall height by 0.8" (hopefully less vibration transmission and less road feel, for comfort). Width of tire will stay the same at 8.5" overall. Is this right?
Can anyone help provide some advice on finding a wheel based on the following?
I'm leaning toward a lightweight, but evenly-distributed wheel to avoid any potential issues with the ABS system as mentioned in this Popular Mechanics article. However, I wasn't sure if a heavier 16" wheel would help absorb more road vibration.
Does anyone have a quick reference for the 2022 Seltos LX 4 clearances?
Would be a lot cheaper in the long run and a 225/55R17 will fit just fine…plus it gives you a wider choice of options including a few soft roader AT type tires.
Overall your diameter will bump up 1.5% (well within spec), give you a little more height and a little wider footprint.
