Wheels & Tyres

Is it possible to fit deeper profile tyres on smaller (I think they're 15") rims to the iQ3 in the same way as fitted to the iQ / iQ2?

The iQ's are all the same really, only equipment levels and engine sizes vary so yes, the 15" wheels from an iQ1 or iQ2 will fit straight on the iQ3.

I have a spare 15" wheel and tyre and ran on that for a few weeks when one of my 16" tyres picked up a big chunk of metal and kept going down.

Can I ask why though?

Welcome to the forum.

It is indeed the iQ & iQ2 that has 15" Rims as standard.

175/65R 15 tyres

iQ3 16" wheels, 175/50R 16 Tyres

Are you looking for a softer ride,?

best go try a iQ on 15" wheels because there really is very little difference for the small difference in sidewall height.

** Maybe someone would do a swap with you, your 16" for their 15".**

Hi everyone - thanks for the warm welcome and advice.


My recollection is that I preferred the ride on the 15" rims, but wanted the 'grunt' of the 1.33 engine.


Toyota are superb at making cars which aren't quite right for me.


Ended up with a Picanto (perfectly respectable car, just don't buy the 1 litre version), but I still admire the iQ - something special about them.


Laydon.
