I have a few questions...

1. Can somebody pls advice me if there is any difference between the final ratio of Armada and MM540.
2. Right now my MM540 (under constructions) has 16 6.00 Nylone tyres. Which redial tyres can I fit on the same rim/wheel. From where one can buy buy MRF Sandgrippers and for how much. Are they redials. What tyre no. (like 215 75 R16) do they bear.

Thank you. ...

Thanks

Default Detail Info plz

Hello guys,
sorry if I missed it out somewhere,but I really wanted to know the actual difference in Army MM550 & regular MM550 4WD chassis design.
Specialyy on fronts of chassis design & overall strength of ladder frame.
All I know is difference between engine type & tyres (Sandgrip on Army)

So one question arises in my mind, that if someone changes the color, tyres & seat arrangements (i.e. External appearance) of a regular MM550 to that of an Army version, how to make out the real difference.

(This can happen if someone not knowledgeable enough goes to a 2nd hand shop asking for a military jeep?)
Your suggestion is recommended,

Thanx

Hey
The sandgrips work very well on my MM440 petrol jeep,
They are mounted on std jeep rims.
Wear rate is pretty high.
Road grip is suberb.
Offroad performance is excellent on most surfaces.
Here is a pic of my jeep with them

Hi mm440!

I noticed your tyres are protruding outside. Have you added spacers or something?

reason for doing that?

Its positive and negative effects on performance, steering and breaking?

can you post a pic regarding the same showing the spacers?

asking cause I was just thinking of doing the same thing.

Thanks.
