Can somebody tell me my tires have M+S written on them what it mean
You get these hole plugs that you can use. They come fitted on hard top gypsies on the bonnet and windshield frame (where the footman loops are there to hold down the collapsible windshield of the soft top).

M&S: Mud and Snow.

Congrats Manik!

Is it a factory soft top version or was it converted to? The loop on the bonnet and the windshield frame suggests it was a factory hard top.

Vinay

But the tyres look too fat. dont you think you onroad ride quality will be affected by those huge fat tyres. Alloys are a killer. Looks cool.
thanks man
The on road manners are very good the handling and stability is just great and its comfortable compared to other gypsys and yes i like the alloys also

congats for your purchase, i hope this gypsy has a power steering as with such fat tyres you need one.
windscreen looks nice .but does it have sun film on it or is it a tinted glass and if it is a tinted glass then make sure it is laminated as most of the grey tinted glasses are not laminated

Hi Manik,
Excellent looking vehicle! Congrats.

If you wish to pursue offroading even a little bit seriously (as a weekend hobby), I strongly recommend BF Goodrich tyres. Generally offroad vehicles are told to use steel rims - easy to replace and repair, but I guess these alloys aren't too expensive - so you could use these with the BFG's..

Enjoy the vehicle!

thanks bro

offroading will be once a month thing and the guy gave receipt of 52k for the tires and rims but i will get off road rims and tyres in the coming month donna like this alloy to much because of technical points but it makes it look hot

Congrats on the Gypsy buddy
I believe that these tyres will definitely be an issue when turning. I remember in my gypsy(1998 1.0 carb) I went in for 275's and boy were they a pain.
Turning, FE, ride quality everything went for a toss. This made me pledge to keep the tyres as stock as possible. Just 10-20% upsize or downsize is acceptable.
But hey to each his own.

Take care of it and it will give you years or trouble free service!!!
As someone has already said on this forum

GYPSY'S ARE BORINGLY RELIABLE!!!
Cheers
