Thoughts About Larger Wheels On The Triber
Larger wheels equal more stability. Most of us who tested the Renault Triber felt that the vehicle was a little unstable at higher speeds. Larger wheels will definitely bring more stability to the Triber and reduce that excessive body roll.
Renault launched the seven-seater Triber a couple of months ago and is now offering top-of-the-line models with bigger tyres. The MPV's top-spec variant, the Triber RxZ now features 15-inch wheels, as compared to the 14-inch ones it had.
