Hi Arka,

These are 275/70/R16's.
I bought these in Feb'09 and that time they were the last ones in this particular size. But the dealer also had Maxxis Buckshots which were 295/85/R16's these again are Mud Terrain's.

I could find out from him if he has the tyres available.

Cheers !!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Randeep.. do you happen to have a picture of your spacers? It would help me take a picture to my machine shop to get a set made.

I remember that there was some discussion about the safety issue of using such spacers. Have you done any more research on that? Did you also have to get alloys with an offset to accommodate the 1" thickness of the spacers?

I did not click any pics of the spacers but will arrange for the pics to be clicked.
As far as I know there is no problem in using spacers, i've used spacers in my gypsy too and no such problem concerning them.

As for my alloys, they are offset alloys. As my tyres are big, i went in for offsets and even if my PCDs matched i would have had to install spacers so that the tyres dont rub against the leafsprings. therefore the spacers took care of two issues for me.

Cheers !!!!!!!!!!

Hey guys finally got my comp fixed so am uploading the comparison pic of my old tyres and new tyres
Old tyre size - 205/60 R 15 - Good year (Its a Car tyre)
New tyre size - 235/75 R 15 - Good year Wrangler RT/S

The height difference between them is about 5+ inches!!
so the overall height of my Gypsy has increased by about 3 inches

Default 16" 139 PCD Alloys

Hey Guys,
As I have been enquiring in Bangalore about the availability of 139 PCD in 16" alloys for my Jeep, I ran into a company called Prestige Design (:: PRESTIGE DESIGN ::) based in Delhi, that may have these available. Has anyone used their products or heard of this company? It looks like they can get these in about 1 week to 10 days time. I'll let you know as I get more details.

Ganesh Banavar,

Just had a look through their range and nothing in the 16" really stands out for Jeep use.

Lenso do some nice SUV type rims in 16" with the 139PCD.

Bigman,
After speaking to the guy in Bangalore, who gave me this info, number 306 is available in 16"/139 PCD and is used for SUVs. He said that this is available in all silver, black and silver and all chrome.

I have heard about Lensos as well from another dealer. Both of them have to be ordered and it may take anywhere from 5 to 20 days to obtain them.

Hi, Ganesh,

Prestige Alloys and HR are two companies that make the best alloys in India. Their alloys are widely used in North India.

lucky for you if you found 139 pcd in prestige as i could't.

cheers

I also had a talk with Prastige guy and understood that they have 31x10.5 R 15. The brand they have is Silverstone and they are imported from Malaysia. He said that the tyre life should be 70K-80K KM which I doubt.

Does anybody know about Silverstone tyres and are they Ok for INR 4.5 to 5K /each.

Very informative thread> have been glued on it.

I see few options posted here from MRF's non Military range, however no serious discussions around this. (apart from the Wanderer which I dont find too...)

I saw some aggressive looking threads on MRFs brochure and just want to inject some Desi options apart from the regular BFG/Michelin/Yoko options. I know these are not built for OTR, just wanted to see if anyone in India has tried these options, as many outside India have and have decent reviews.

In order of my preference

1) MRF Super Traction - Available from 7.00-15 to 7.50-16 sizes.
- Very agressive and impressive thread design.
- Assuming this is for commercial use, the compound will not be soft and should last longer than the Sandgrips
Name:  Super Traction.jpg
Views: 8205
Size:  50.1 KB

2) MRF M - 77 - Available from 7.00-15 to 7.50-16 sizes.
- Less Agressive design.
- Center threads are too straight lined, however nice knobby at the sides

These two are found here - http://www.mrftyres.com/exports/down...ighttrucks.pdf


3) MRF TRACTOR TRAILER 707 - Available in 7.50-16 size. (similar to Super Lug)
- Alternative to NDMS
- Should be better for on road braking than the NDMS?
The above can be found at - http://www.mrftyres.com/exports/down...rvicetyres.pdf

How do we see what kind of compound these use?

which one is this? AT117 or MT117?

The AT117 looks like a copy of BFG TA KO pattern and the MT117 xtreme looks really aggressive.

I wouldn't mind trying these for a price point of 4-4.5K/tyre in 31x10.5 R15 (if they are NOT very old stick). Try and bargain for more

Can you pass on the dealer details to me? I would be interested in knowing more about the 33x10.5 R15 in MT117 xtreme.

Cheers,
