Karan - Now please do share your experience between both the Fortuners [new & old] plus, how is it to drive both in wet conditions on tarmac. And hey, what about AT's?

7 cars in all - 6 Fortuners and 1 Endeavour; the same ratio as sales (6:1).

Equally good so far.

The tyres being HT performed decently on such conditions but are pathetic on wet roads as the aquaplaning resistance is poor.

Sad part was that next day i had a flat. (More on this in the next post)

The next morning after the OTR the rear right tyre was flat;

^ At first i thought probably during the OTR session the tyre would have got damaged.

But upon removal of the tyre, found the culprit;

Bridgestone's got screwed at a very early age;

Fixed it and put the same tyre back as i did not want to use the stepney

It appears that it is almost the same tread design as what I got in my 4WD Scorpio in size 235/65 R17. So, be ready for punctures

So I was right, the feeling of more confidence when it is pouring is much more in AT's than it was in HT's. Thanks

I missed this part and hence the consecutive post.

Earlier today had taken the car for a underbody high pressure wash at the official Toyota Service centre;

Guess what, we found out a stone had been stuck around the skid plate area;

Somewhere here;

Total Cost of the wash was INR 785/- (Incl. Taxes), this included exterior, underbody & Interior Vacuuming.

What a coincidence! Even my rear right tyre had a similar puncture just yesterday while returning from Bangalore. No, I wasn't doing any offroading, was just cruising on a smooth highway and found that a sharp wooden nail like thing pierced through the tyre. This made me realize that these Duelers are a bit soft
