i have no idea what tyres the white gypsy uses.
But i guess Pajero tyres will fit in the Gypsy. The tyres scrape the inner walls when its fully turned. My friend had Pajero tyres on his Gypsy. And it looked Macho.

My friend has the 2.8 Pajero tyres. Second hand ones.
The Indian 3.2 PAjero uses 265/70 R16 tyres.

hey v12 i didnt quite understand
i know hm gives two vesions of the pajero
one is which is made in india ie the old gen one, this i am sure runs on the std 235 bridgestones coz when i went to the showroon , it had these on
but i am not sure abt the ckd ones ie the new gen ones

also whats the biggest size tyre on can put on to the qualis?

the endeavour runs on 265/70 and the terracan on 255/70 or 65 both 15 inch if i am right, so that makes the pajero tyres the biggest in india,???(contrary to the mrf ad)
also to fit a 295/60 0r 50 15 inch tyre whats should be the size of the rim?

Holy Cow, thats a fuel costing of Rs.14/kilometer. 14 bucks a kilometer? And thats not even counting the acquisition cost, depreciation, insurance, interest blah blah blah.

hey normall crazy...the blach gypsy u were talking about is as said before from mahim and belongs to this dude who owns a small shop out there .....but of late it has been taken care of very badly and has got a lot of rust all over it.....as opposed to the orange gypsy the black one has bigger and broader wheels but what stands out is that it seems like it has a lift
