Maxxis MT-762 bighorn is available in 275/70/16 :

MT-762 Bighorn
Thanx BBS,

Goodrich has very wide range I guess. How is the performance by the way? will it last longer than MRF/Appllo/Vikrant(JK) sandgrips? and these are radial tyres right? How much it costs? I am asking too much but pls reply.

Bighorn also lasts for 12-15K and how these tyres work if driven on road for some time? What is the cost of the same?

Somhow I like Goodrich and Yoko, lets see if it costs me less than Yoko and gives good output , i will go for goodrich .

Sombody who used goodrich pls help.

But do you think that these(NDMS) tyres are good for a 550? The height is 30". Should i go in for these or the yokos are better.
The Miclelin's are out of my budget and I had a chat with Mandeep and he advised me to go for either Goodyear Wanglers or BFGoodrich as a second choices but the Goodyears are not available in 16" rims. I want about 31" 11" 16" which are equivlant to 275/70/16's. And BFGoodrich's are available a max of 235's in 16".
The choice that I am left with are either yokos or NDMS's
Harjeev,
Will go and find out. Thanks for the tip.
I would suggest BFG's or Yoko's on your jeep.
NDMS are really really bad on tarmac, specially when wet.
I am using BFG's on my Gypsy, have clocked 25000 kms and still have
60% tread left on them. They rock in snow and mud with a little compromise on the braking front on tarmac.

Cheers
Vaibhav

BFG's are definitely better. They are very good for offroading.


@ harjeev : You might also want to consider putting 15 inch wheels(if possible) on your MM550, because there are a LOT more options(tires) in 15 inchers.

Tarkesh
Tarkesh, yes both these sizes are for a tyre whom total height is 31 inch. For tyre choice in redial, pls check on the following link, you can check for almost all the famous brands, their size and picture.

*all season tires Bridgestone*Dueler*A/T*693 275/70*R16

Pls check there for Bridgestone Dueler A/T 693 and you will find a big range of sizes in 16 inch. I am surprised to even in 235/85 R 16. Wow, what a great hight you are going to have with these tyres, let me calculate... Oh my god, the overall hight of the tyre is 32 Inch; this means 1 inch taller than Sandgrip and with almost the same width(infect aprox 1.5 inch wider). I found this size most exciting for all those have 16 inch Army rims of 5.5 inch width.

Thanks DK for giving another option for choice. By the way when you say 235/85/16 then this 235 is width right ? then What is the width of Sandgrip ? increasing width will hamper drivability? or Fuel Effi? Because I dont want to do something too far from original sepc of the Jeep.

235/85 R 16 are 9.4 inch wide whereas Sandgrip are 7.5 inch wide.

I am using 31x11 R 15 which are 11 inch wide.

I do not think that this 1.9 inch more thikness will hamper the dirability. But offcourse you will notice anyhow difference after changing the tyres from NDMS to Redial. Redial would give you a less bumpy ride but yes, a bit more body role.

I have seen the tyres of the same size on a MM550 here today only and I will try if I can click a picture and post it here. That chap has fitted a Isuzu 1800 CC petrol engine (Ambasador)

Thats an excellent link DK. Thanks a lot. By the hows Dueler A/T's performance on tarmac, braking, mud and sand? Tarkesh, widening the tyre does have some good and bad part, but 235 is an appropriate size to upgrade. Beyond this, you may feel the need of the power steering.

Thats great news DK if that 1.9 will not affect drivability and FE then I feel 235/85 R 16 is best choice.BTW this is radial one right ?
As Kandisa also suggested 235 is best size. Now I will check both BFG and Bridge stone . If any one of you know performance on tarmac, braking, mud and sand pls update me .
And DK if you can just take some snaps of the 550 which you are talking about it will be great.

Hey Guys,

I saw a new tyre yesterday on TATA Safari , which says Apollo HawkZ "Steel Radial " with 235 /70 / R10 or R16 I guess. Which is this tyre and how is the performance Off road and OTR? Is this the same as Apollo Bullet which I think sometimes comes with 550.

Attaching the pic
regards,

Tarkesh

Worth every penny IMO! I clicked this picture last month, can you believe that they have covered probably around 25,000 kms of HARD driving? I say *probably* as my speedometer has barely worked for a good amount of the last 6 years. I don't know the exact kms covered.

I must add that the Classic runs incredibly easy on the tyres. My stock JKs has a decent tread depth @ 50,000 kms!
