I own a Ford EcoSport Titanium plus since Feb'2018. Tyre supplied with car are 205/50 R17. These are getting cut from side wall & not repairable. Through website reviews I have come to know that this model of EcoSport having 17 inch alloy wheels having design defect. Now can it be changed by 205/65 R17 tyre. If yes what will be the effect on vehicle system.

Hello,

Thats a gross mis-size as it leads to almost 10% difference in Tyre Circumeference
The Tyre Height will increase from 25.9 Inch to 28 Inch and will almost scrape the wheel arch

Either - can go with
> R17 225/50 - This although will impact on Mileage, but will end up with better stability
> Downsize to R16 205/60 - This will cost in higher amount as alloy rims also need to change, but will take away the tyre cut issues

Hope should help !!

Dear all kindly advise whether Ford has reduced size of tyre from 17 to 16 inch for titanium plus. Because I have already paid for titanium plus made December 2018 and it has 16inch. I doubt whether it's changed by show room or not. I selected this year back one because it has some features like android auto and cruice control which are not in new titanium plus. Now my only worry is the tyre is really changed by Ford side...
