Thanks Jaggu - will stick to your advice of -ve offset wheels. Any recommendation on the ET? The steel ones which VijiSir is selling in Swastikviji is -30. Will that be an overkill? I saw some online with around -13 ET. What's a good offset value to stick to keeping in mind onroad/offroad usage of 60/40 respectively.

Haven't heard any bad reviews of Swastikfabs steel rims, and i really like the design, have to admit Again its a personal choice, looks price etc But first check how much of clearance you would need, then decide on what is the minimum offset needed. Very difficult to comment looking at pics.

A sneak peek of current status. Work is happening very slowly so have asked the guys at the garage to buck up a little and expedite things.

Hi Chetan,

Have been very tied up with stuff and, as a result, my Gypsy work slowed down considerably. The good news is that the 3" lift kit has been installed along with the shackles and 5" shocks. Finishing is taking place. The bad news, for my pocket, is that I now need new tyres. The existing shoes look seriously puny. A couple of pics attached. I hope to have her ready for the January 4-5 CORE excursion.

BTW, to all the experts. Any suggestions for tyres, now that the body has been lifted? I am inclined towards MAXXIS Bighorns but would love to get some feedback.
