Its funny, the front is heavy, so the front should have higher pressure!
I suggest you put in 32psi front and rear, its always better to go 2psi higher for highway runs.

Yes, it is funny that the front which is heavier has almost 5 psi less than the rear ? Anyways, I am going to try with 32psi which I don't think would do good cause I don't do highway running during weekdays also I thought you should use a little less tyre pressure for highway runs as the tyres get heated during these runs? please correct me if I am wrong.

30 in front and 32 in rear gives a very smooth ride in Safari

You need to put in 2-3PSI higher than recommended for highway driving. An under inflated tire would heat more. This is due to formation of standing wave.
An underinflated tire can lead to blow out.
Normally the maximum rating of the tire is around 40psi. the 32psi is the minimum recommended pressure given by the manufacturer for that vehicle.

Stick to the manufacturer recommended tire pressure. I'm very happy with that for city runs in bangalore.

Default At last long drive with the HULK 1000K Pune to GOA

At last I had a chance to stretch the HULK's feet and boy did it really. Shall post details soon. The trip was done in 8.5hours no issues. Didn't rev above 3K nor did above 100Km/hr. The beast was asking for more at 100km/h it was like holding a thorough bred pulling on its reins. 100 to 140 Km/hr is a breeze for the HULK tried it once but refrained. Anyways now need to get the 1-1.5K service done as the reading is 1900 at present. So shall get that fixed. I am in dilemma with the tyre pressure and I had filled 32 Front and 35 rear at GOA when on the way back I climbed the AMBOLI ghat and the ride was way to jumpy. Then checked after that and found that it had gone to 40 and 45 respectively. Reduced it and then found a lot of difference. Even the fuel as zucchero suggested this time round I put normal diesel with Additive System D but dint find the smoothness however as he suggested it takes 2 tank fulls to give the results.....lets see what happens now.

The beast is great and its good to know that there were no hiccups with your beast.

Regarding the accessories do include in a decent pair of horns and a little wider set of tyres to go with the beast.
And why don't you go for the xenons. the prices have come down in the recent past.
i have heard that the indian market is flooded with fake xenons. real xenons start from 12,000/- and upwards! is it correct? where can i get real xenons for tata safari?

Shaheenazk, dont know where you would find these in your place however there are plenty accessory shops here giving out genuine xenons. And they ain't cheap.

Hi Juda. Congrat on yr new new beast (!!) and your Goa Trip. Any issues faced yet ?

Where did you get the servicing done from? B U Bhandari or Pandit ?
Pandit's Bhosari workshop is not mentioned as a TASC on the Owner's manual !

The scale changes when the safari is full laden with passengers and luggage, it will be more heavy on the back along with the body weight.

Perhaps thats the reason for this recommendation.

Dadu is absolutely spot on,this is precisely the reason

as i have seen lot of safaris laden with 7 people and they are sort of tilted towards the back

so to avoid that scenario cos that can be dangerous for handling,it is advisable to have 30/32 with 2-3 passengers otherwise 32/35 in case of more to have a stable and comfortable ride.
