If you can, please change the Rims if you are fitting bigger tyres.

Hi Arka,

Just one last question on Tyres / Wheels

What would be the ideal set-up if I go for 15" wheels (steel rims/nothing fancy) and tyres to compliment the 15" set up?
OR is this a definite NO NO!!

Thank you once again..
Prasad

Hi Prasad,

The JONGA runs 7.00X16 that is 30" Tall.

If you go for 15" then
1) Yoko MT 31-10.50-15
2) Maxxis 31-11.50-15

The question is where will you get a suitable rim and at what price?

Regards,

Arka

Hi Arka,

I think I might just stick to the 16" rims since changing the wheels looks like an extension to my troubles of finding the right set.

I have decided to source 16" Maxxis Bighorns (If I can find one)
Part # TL30205200 size:245 / 75 R16 - recommended wheel size is 7J (the Jonga is 5.5J)

Appreciate all the help so far..

I am still not in possession of the vehicle (should get it in about 7 - 10 days) - Just thought that I'd get a head start on tyres

Thank you once again..

Cheers..
Prasad

Hi Prasad,

Please check the rear Wheel Arch if the Wheels foul, trim the Rear Wheel Arch.

Regards,

Arka

PS - I would suggest you pick up some Carbs/Distributors/Fuel Pump for the P-Series Engine

Wonderful, now what rims and tyre size? I m looking for something that gives decent driveability on tarmac and definitely better off it.

My alloys are 15inch-6Js hence I am looking to move to 16inch-8.5J rims with a tubed setup and sell away the alloys with the tyres... The alloys are in brilliant state and the B'stone Duelers may have around 6-8k tarmac life left on em. Anyone interested can PM me. Thank you.

Now, what rims would be suitable? Purpose and availability wise both. Once that is done, over to the diff ratio upgrade to suit new setup please

Hi Wolf,

Shahnawaz Khan's Setup 31-10.50-15 (Yoko MT)and his Rims will be superb on a MM540.

Otherwise the good old 7.50X16 Sand Grip or the JK LT4x4.

31/32" Tall Tyres will help improve the Ramp Over Angle of an MM540.

Regards,

Arka

Hey thanks Arka... what would be your ideal setup for 80% tarmac + 20% OTR (slush biased, considering the onset of monsoon)?
1. 15nch gypsy rims + 31" Geolander?
2. 15inch gypsy rims + 31" Trepador?
3. 15/16inch any other rim + 31" any above tyre/ Sand Grip/ JK LT?
4. Any other set up?

I am not looking to spend too much doe to experiment on different setups ongoing so I wana get it as close as possible to the best combo at the first go...hence the above explicity

Gypsy rims are 15" size though they are straight fit on jeeps. So you will have to check out different rims if you want 16".

Thanks Jag...

Any clue of
1. where those army look alike (oval grooves) 16'' rims available in Blore and how much they cost?
2. Also, are they available in desired Js?
3. How do these non authentic army rims fare in taking OTR beatings?

p.s: what J is gypsy rim?

1) Not aware of the same, though you should find some decent army rims in decent condition if you ask around. No idea of cost.
2) They are 5.5J IIRC.
3) Not aware of army look alike's.

According to the info in their site the 7.00X16 Pattern 33 (NDMS in our lingo) is 31.3'' tall. This seems to be a better bet for a mm 540 that anything else for me suddenly coz it will work out under 20k for a set of 5 !!!

Go for it -- NDMS tyres are the best performing tyres money can buy for jeeps. BTW, which rims you plan for these tyres? If I am not wrong, these are 16" tyres, so you would need rims also as your existing rims are 15".

Again, IIRC, army rims would cost you ~15K+ for a set of 5 depending on where you source them from. You can get them shipped from Mayapuri in NCR.

The Army rims weigh 16Kg each compared to the 5Kg alloy rims. Better to keep that in mind.

Yeah I was told these army rims would be around 40% heavier! That additional weight can help in certain terrains but will definitely have negative implications in most if assessed technically. BTW, sir, the 15'' 6j alloys that I have, I dont think its less that 10-12kgs considering my stock 14" 5J OHC VTEC alloys (Enkei make) were around 9kgs each and were considered fairly light in the domestic racing world. Will check the exacts when I can and repost.

Also, any idea how much normal steel rims weigh, the non army ones??

Khan bhai: I am not too particular about army rims, the 16'' army look alike (oval grooves) are good enough for me I am guessing. I liked the rims on that light green 'PB' registered MM 540 that had come to the Pearl valley otr. I wouldnt mind those types...

The steel rims weigh about 9kgs. You have an alloy that weighs 10-12Kg...
