Have the radiator work lined up for next week. Ya the fan pulls the air from outside onto the condenser & radiator.

Rmonie,
I am thinking of putting the condenser underbody in my Gypsy. Can you post some pictures of the full install?

Hey Kaushik!!!

How much is the conversion from power assisted break's to power booster brakes costing you???

And what all is being changed apart from the booster cylinder???

Default re : gypsy tyres

The 235's look huge. You sure you wont have any problem in turning the vehicle or clearance issues or issues with articulation of the wheels ?
How many working examples do we have here of people installing 235 size tyres and having no issues.

regards,
Abheek

I have had only 215s and 205s on mine. First change was the 215s and when I changed that to 205s, it was almost like I had power steering.

I recently saw a Gypsy (1.0 Litre) with 235s, but the rims were narrow creating a balloon effect on the tires.

got 235s in mine.
No need not work out your arms at Gym.
Go for 235 if you plan to have Power steering.
Iam going to get it installed.( the koyo make PS kit costs 8k)

the stock Gypsy steering box will wear out quickly with 235s

Go for 215s if you are happy with its look.a

@Kaushik!!!
Checkout these pics (Composite Fibre Leaf Springs: Can they be used for off-roading?)of Khan's Gypsy!!!
The tyres he has on his Gypsy are definitely 235's or bigger and he has done SpOA and Composite Leaf's. You don' t have to go for Composite Leaf's at the moment, but doing SpOA shouldn't cost that much!!!

Kaushik,

I have the same model of Superking AC kit in my gypsy. Very effective one. Set up is almost the same. Where has it been fitted inside the gypsy

Mine is placed upwards inside the dashboard and the Vents connected to existing Blower holes on the face of dashboard. Virtually making the equipment invisible.

Kaushik,

I have fitted 235 Yokohoma Geolander AT/S on my gypsy with full metal body. I find it quite normal on road or off road. Infact road grip on highway has increased from 215 bridgestone.

Stalling, you will find it really hard to turn the wheels

Tried the 235's and 215's last evening -

YOKO GEO 235's - the rear side of the front tyre touches the leaf spring on turning
Goodyear 215's - perfect, YOKO GEO 215's but not in stock
(there is this guy who has them but they are 10-12 months old, what should i do??)

Also it would be great if i could get a rough estimate on the pricing of the YOKO GEO A/TS both 215 & 235.
