Re: Story of Hercules - My Tata Safari Storme EX
Posting in this thread after about 1 year 4 months 17 days to be precise. Been a very hectic year for me personally due to new work assignments, personal family engagements and much more.
The good part - Hercules has been with me all through. Strong as a rock! Never gave any chance to complain.
The beast has now clocked more than 65000 kms. It was time to change the tyres as I was feeling a loss of tread and grip constantly. Had to attend a family function in Punjab so clubbed a small vacation to a forest resort in Ropar. The only mistake that I did, I did not change the tyres.
Had three punctures along that trip which made me firm about the need of changing my tyres immediately once I get back.
There were a lot of options in the market, someone recommended Michelin, someone recommended Maxxis. I had been following Tanveer's post on the best tyres for Safari and went to check out Continental cross contact and shortlisted them right away. Tyre Size is 255/65 R16
In the below pictures, one can notice the old ones indicating that they have to go now. And then there are pictures of the muscleman with the new shoes.
