I think SV Santosh is running these tyres on his CJ340. I am not aware of the performance.

Or look at Yokohama Geolander AT-S, they are one of the best all rounders, both off and on the road.

If you are going to do rocky terrains, go for something with tougher sidewalls, like the continental cross contact AT. Its a harder tire.

Its time for a change so no to Geolander AT-Ss and BFGs.Lets see what are all the other options.
What about the tyre size is 245/75/R16 is ok ?

tsk1979,

It should be a good High way tyre with descent off road capability. For Serious OTRs I am planing some resoled tyre with MT tire type tread pattern.

I don't think this is a good idea, please consider & think over the following

1) will retreaded tyres stand the

A ) low air pressure off roads
B ) the traction requirements wrt the sole coming off

2 ) danger of getting the damaged ( while off roading ) tyre blown when you are on road .

This doesn't sound good wrt reliability & tyre life ( may be ok with traction requirements )

Fully agree on this^^. Sreejesh, tires are your vehicles only interface with the ground. Never take them lightly. We need to talk on this.

Spike

EDIT- Why are you searching for tires from now itself?

If you want different tyre's be prepared for some heart aches also There are not many reliable option out there in India. Cooper's are another good option but all the very best in sourcing them. BFG's i would not recommend unless you plan to do only rocks, they really are bad in mud which is what you will encounter most of the time.

Jaggu,

I am looking for a Good AT tyre with descent off road capability. I think MT tyres are not good for on road especially on high speeds. I can't compromise on road performance but off the road. The Only exception is the OTR Events Which I am not experienced yet.You mean SCORPIONS are not good enough?

Sudarsan,

resoled tyre are not that bad but your points are correct really don't know in the case of "low air pressure off roads" and the traction on sidewalls.

Spike,

I started locating the dealer who sells this tyres. What about the tyre size ?

Default Offroad Rims/Tyres Thread

I have fitted my New Bolero Di 4wd with Geolander A/T S in 31-10.5-15 size. I am planning to get some steel wheels (not alloys) with negative off-set in 15 inch size.

Quick Clarification. What are the problems that can arise running 8.5 inch rims on 215 size tyres?

Hi Vak,

Can you please let us know from where are you planning to get the Steel Wheels for the Bolero. Do you plan to get the Standard OEM Steel Wheel or something similar to the Brazilian Steel Wheels / Trailer Wheels?

215 section tyre on 8.5j rim/alloy is not recommended & its impossible too.

at most you can use 5.5j or 6j wheel rim/alloy. (6.5j is also over size for 215)


when you fill air in tyre/tube it applies pressure on the rims flanges.
if there is not enough pressure the tyre will rotate when you apply brakes.
or tyre will not rotate with rims when you want them.

see the video.
