Another trip to Cochin from TRV.Got 11.8kmph with AC 100% for a full tank run.

Filled up on way back near Alapuzha and checked mileage when I reached TRV and some city drive. I got 13.5kmpl.

Thanks to diablomk (he two owns a July 09 PW 2.2L EX ), I met Perumal of Concorde Motors, Cochin. Perumal is considered an expert with Safari's and used to work on Steeroid's Dicor.

According to Perumal I need to get decarbonation, check on clutch pressure plate as I get throbbing jerks when I slowly release clutch, check turbo for fixing krr-krr. He also commented that my present TASS would be lazy to check the clutch coz they will have to dismantle it. I intent to drive down to Coc soon and give my Safari to Perumal to work on.

I drove diablomk's Safari and it was very smooth after Perumal worked on it.

Default Odo at 47800kms; Tata Safari 2.2L EX on Yokohama Geolander 235/70 R16

Changed tyres to Yokohama Geolander ATS 235/70 R16 at 5800Rs/tyre. Also filled it up with Nitrogen in all four tyres. I am pretty happy with the service/dealings of Speed Tyres, Cochin. I also got a Yoko T-shirt free.

Some pix of old tyres and new ones. I have retained the best stock tyre as the spare and have another at home. These two tyres would have last few thousand more easily.

It exists I posted the picture , but it is from Sumo Grande.
Ask your T.A.S.S to fit Sumo grande tail latch in your Safari.

After 2500 KM and 1000 KM atleast on bad roads I can confirm tail gate squeak is gone permanently

I have posted the part numbers in 2.2 VTT thread please check , In case your T.A.S.S fengs ignorence just but the sumo grande parts ( some 200 Rs) abased on part number from spare parts window at the T.A.S.S and then get it fitted by some friendly neighborhood mechanic.

Thanks jaggu. I am very happy with the tyres. The drive back from Cochin to Shertalla on the 4 way saw the Safari doing triple digits more faster coz I felt more grip and stability. Faster steering response.

amitk; thanks. I donno how I do it Maybe odo err.Hehe.

And thanks for revealing the secret!

JKDas,

Congrats on the new rubber. I am sure the grip would be a very much noticable now.

Drive say and have a great time.

And how is the little guy doing? When are you going for the baby seats?

so your choice ended up with the geolanders. Nice looking tyres man.

I think you dropped the idea of alloys( may be since you have a new member in ur family.hehe)

Thanks KP.

Jithu; I would need atleast 25-29 k just for new alloys. I saw a 255 on wider alloys at Speed Tyres; looked wow. And I think a 7J or 7.5J alloys will also give 235 a more wider look.

HappyWheels; the grip is too good. I am more confident in taking it to higher speeds than I was before.
