Bad will be an understatement if the speed is above 40 kmph ^^

They are a good pattern for sand and slush and perform moderately on road.

A good alternative for NDMS for MM5x0s.

A quick update on the Jonga project.

Got a set of Cooper Discoverer STT 235/85/16 for my Jonga . I am now waiting for the Offroad wheels to mount these on. Hopefully they should come together i.e., the tyres and the wheels, sometimes next week. Will post some pictures then.

Getting the offroad wheels has been an issue . I had spoken to a guy in Delhi, who has been promising me the wheels from a Landcrusier, but he is yet to deliver. Can anybody suggest other soources where I can get Off-road wheels (6 holes 5.5 PCD and 16" Dia)

I got the tyres from Cherry Agencies Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore.

Regards

I might be a bit off as the picture is small - but try the 16" Hulk model by Neo Alloys. A google search will get you all the details.

Some feedback and experience with Maxxis

When I started the Thar project, I really wanted to go big and wild, so I got a set of Maxxis Mudzilla 31*11.5*16 as they really looked mean and rough, but as most other things in live, its not always those pretty things that works the best.
One word... disappointed... The Mudzillas is very, very disappointing!
The side walls on the Mudzilla`s is extreme, so hard even when you deflate the tyres 0.7 bar - the tyres does not flex and the side walls & thread part stays very rigid. This then cause the tyres to have less grip due to a lack of flex.
Also these tyres are noise... very very noise on tar over 80km.h and very loose handling over 100km.h so that you getting scared looking at 120km.h ..... then I must mention... at this speed you can only hear one thing! The Tyres !!!
On the possitive side, if you get a set of these and drive in very rocky conditions where tyres are cut easily or looking for a tyre that will almost never puncture.

I then fitted a set of Maxxis Big Horns, 265/75R16.... Huge different, much better handling on tarr and not even close as noisy... still noisy but this is still mud terrain tyres, but in my books very acceptable.
But saying this, the Thar was not build to drive around on tarr roads. The Big Horns deflate great, at 0.7 bar comparing to the Mudzillas these get very flexible, ensure your traction increase a lot.

In a nutshell; dont just look and make your decisions based on the aggressive thread pattern of a tyre, ensure you do your homework before buying the wrong tyre for your application.

Tyre/Rim Gurus,

Got a question. Where in a RIM can I check it is a 8.5J (example), Is it the length from the 'left-to-right' Outer Edges or INNER edges?

Reason I am asking is I came across a good deal on some cheap alloys and seller only knows it is a 15" gypsy specific rim (139.7 PCD in his lingo I suppose). So I am currently running 215/75/R15 and they are good for another 15-20K Kms... In future (suppose) I spend on 235/75/R15's, I want to make SURE these RIMS would fit.

Any Help is appreciated...
Santosh
