The new 'shoes' do look stunning on the Scorp. How much the tyres cost you?

Last Friday I finally upgraded the Jeep tyres from Apollo Storm AT to Yokohama Geolandar AT-S. Since I have difficulty turning the steering with 235/75R15 tyres, I was wishing I could switch to 215/75R15, but with 7.5 width alloys, that would not be a good idea. So I decided to stay with 235/75R15 for the yokos.

With the new shoes, I had two unexpected but very welcome change. First, the steering wheel turns much easily now, no more fighting the wheel. Second, the ride comfort is certainly better.

Sharath san, how about some details on how it did in some wet soil. I am sure you could not resist doing that OTR test.

Looks like the Yokohama Geolandar AT-S is becoming a hot fav here - barring the Sandgrips/Bullets fans.

IronWolf, the rain is too hard these days. I'd be surprised to get any grip at all. I am waiting for it to lighten up.

@NIP, I am searching for BF goodrich all Terrain T/A but all dealers only have long Trail in stock. Michelin India has discontinued the All Terrain version!

Smile Most interesting ARMY RIM

Guys,

This is not Jeep/4x4 vehicle rim but most interesting steel wheel. I was impressed, I think the bolts shown in the wheels says it is split rim, but it could be the PCD too. Have fun!

Hi guys!!!

Need your suggestions on this urgently -

Am doing a road trip to Ladakh in my gypsy http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ve...ter-gypsy.html and need to buy new tyres for it, these are the choices i have -

Left to Right - BF Goodrich - Geolanders - Continental - All these tyres are 235/75/R15 (but i am going to install 215/75/R15)

The Offroad Rims & Tyres Thread-21072009493.jpg

Based on the pattern and material used for these tyres what would you your answer be to the following questions -
  1. Which tyres you think are the best if one has 60% on road and 40% off road running??
  2. Which tyres you think will have better ride quality on the highway??
  3. Which tyres you think will last longer??

Well this is what i am told so far -

1. BFG's are very good for OTR and ok for the highways
2. Yoko Geo's are very good for the highway and ok for OTR
3. Conti's good for highways only.

More Questions -


1.Are the BFG's way better than the Geo's in OTR??
2.Are the BFG's very bad in grip at high speeds on highways??
3.Will the BFG's last long enough if they are used extensively on the highways as well?
