any ways i think that the best choice for the above mentioned usage are the JK brutes/ or the Apollo storms
Yeah thats how it should be From your experience it seems to be a good allround tyre.

Thanks white,
Thought so, as I have seen that size on army trucks only, next time you come across a pair, keep me in mind and pick them up please and let me know.
Thanks again.

I am sorry, you are totally mistaken. Often these rut damage gets cleaned up after one big rain. I live in similar terrain and it changes looks every couple of months.

the JK 4x4 cost me Rs 3800/- per set the size is 205/80 R 16
Amazing job on this Jeep. Looks just very different. Nice job on the rims.

Did you try different seats before you plonked the esteem seats? Were they the best to sit in and drive your jeep? How do these seats work for you when you're out offroading (especially incline/decline/rocky terrain offroading - where you pretty much need to swirl around your seat to keep an eye on terrain. Comfortable enough?

Having different sets of tyres on different rims is probably the best option for having both on & off-road capability, but changing everytime might be tedious. Bit off-topic, for all those who have been using their jeeps for normal driving also apart from off-roading, whats the optimum choice?
-Best regards,
My replies are way too late, but my useless cents eitherways.

I have been using my jeep with NDMS tyres extensively both on road and offroad. However, to extend the life of the NDMS, I am now going to opt for cheap highway spec tyres and make space in the loading bay of the jeep behind to plonk the NDMS tyres. When I go long distance OTR (+100kms of on road driving to reach the spot), I will run with the highway tyres, find a tyre shop closeby and change to the NDMS, go offroading, come back, change again, and drive home. This is probably the most effective way of ensuring your on road/offroad characteristics dont eat up into each other's driving.
