Dhanush,
You might explore of 245/75/16 Maxxis Bighorn 764 (Not 762 which is old pattern). They have good aggressive tread pattern can be fitted on army rims or 8.5 J alloys.
Else opt for evergreen Bighorn 31/10.5/15. Tried and tested with very good side wall.

I'm a little bit concerned about the sidewalls, they arent that strong as I expected. Will update performance report soon.

The to-do things after getting the 32 inch tyres include:
  • Cutting the front mud guard
  • Sometimes, modify the rear mud guard
  • Change crown pinion to 43/8
The steering isnt harder than the 31 inch, 265mm wide tyre, but I have a strange feeling like the vehicle is tramlining on-road. Not sure if its the tyres or anything else.

After Wayanad OTR extensive recce of about ~2 months, the Thar CRDe hood was torn by coffee branches. So, gave it for repair.

When the hood was removed, decided to put in thermocol sheet on the inside to reduce vibrations and heat.

Also, I have successfully damaged the rear zipper (like majority of Thar owners). Hence removed the zipper and changed to Velcro.
