Khan,

Do you think the security guys at the work place will finally force you to park Spidy with the transport buses and trucks???

Looking forward to seeing this in flesh.

Not testing but going to meet swastikviji for getting some fabrication work done for our future mods :-)

Size. The maxxis were 29" and these are 31". That's the ONLY reason.

he he. luckily the security folks don't mess with me. I have harrased them enough.

The weather these days is not enticing enough to drive the Gypsy to office. If I bring it, will give you a buzz or you will see it parked yourself and can give me a buzz

Yes you get, but I got these at pretty reasonable prices so went for them.
Can you PM me the price or better still, I'll ask you over the week-end unless you're campaigning for the JDS (which is what I last heard from the grapevine!)

This thread title needs to be changed since it is no more on these tyres.

Apparently the Spidey was returned to khan today in a buy-back deal. It was only sold for a day, for fool's gold.

Oh, they are amazing. The best M/T tyres I have used/seen till now. I would rate them even better than Maxxis Trepadors (for pure off-road performance) as the Yoko have soft compound compared to maxxis. Even on road performance is lot better than maxxis (less noise, more stable braking). The only aspect is a little more wear than maxxis.

Also I just did the TPC with these M/T tyres and they ROCKED on sand..!!!! Just TOOOOOOOOOO good. No complaints whatsoever.

Khan Bhai,

Do these 31" tyres fit on any normal 15" Alloys or do you need a specific one for it as well.
