Among the positives, they handle road abuse a lot better. On high speeds, they remain supremely planted. On an empty stretch with no traffic whatsoever, I stretched my XUV all the way to 160 and did not feel the slightest wobbliness on the steering.

They glide over Mumbai's undulated roads with ease. I think, given their groove structure they are a tad noisy but nothing I cant live with. Here is a pic of my outgoing and incoming tyres side by side.

Hope this helps with your decision..

Cheers
I am done with search on MRF wanderer AT as it is not available on all of the shops that enquired here in Bangalore. Also I found all the MRF dealers very rude and non-cooperating.

I am getting pirelli scorpian ATR for stock size at Rs 12,800. Are you on stock size tyre or it is 255 profile. Upsize might be the reason for drop in FE.

Please check manufacturing dates of the tyre before you change them.Scorpion ATR is good tyre but bit high on road noise.

It is June, 2016 manufactured. will noise be the concern even at low speed ( < 90 km/h)?

Thats good.I found them to be more noisy than stock apterras even at slow speeds.I think all A/T tyres are high on noise than H/Ts.But A/T offers more resistance to punctures and grip.I did a kerala Ladakh drive last month on all worse terrains without a single punture with scorpion ATRs.

Guys, any feedback on the Ceat Czar HT for the XUV? The price advantage is huge, but does it come with any risk? My run is mostly in Bangalore with 20% highway stints. I'm not sure if I should consider the ATs.

Replaced two with pirelli. It is week 7, 16 manufactured which should be ok keeping shipment in mind. Quick look i found they are not very hard on side walls but not soft as Michelins. Noise is little more compared to my previous HT tyres but it is not noticeable on mild music. I always run with some music. Drive on bad road looks more planted now. Will share details feedback after driving few thousands of km. So far I am happy with the decision

Hope you have spend some KM with the tyres . How are they holding up ?
where did you buy it from in Bangalore and at what price ?
My Stock Apollos are giving up slowly with 30k on the clock. I am in the lookout for the new tyres and confused between Michelins & Pirelli. I drive 70 % in city and 30 % in Highway. No real off-roading as now a days Bangalore roads are providing me off-roading experience .
I am bit biased towards Michelins ( expecting that the ride quality will improve) as XUV's hard suspension is breaking my back already but the forum's advice is vital.

Done 1000 km. Pirelli is good and is not bad at high speed. I found nothing to complain till 100 kmph. They shine on bad roads for sure. For Bangalore road, these tyres are just perfect. I got from tyre empire varthur main road ( opposite sigma tech park). I found Michelin too soft on sides for my liking.

you need to decide if you need HT or AT tyre. do you run over 100 kmph regularly or occasionally? roads on your daily commute can be considered as bad roads or good roads? that will help you to sort out AT vs HT tyre.

Pirelli's are decent AT tyre but IMO not really for real off-road.
for HT, if you are happy with Michelin stick to that brand

I am following this thread for quite sometime now. Wanted to replace steel wheels with alloys for my XUV 500 w6. I stay at Mumbai suburbs. Any pointers from where i can buy good alloys. Any help will be appreciated.

Mod Note - Please proofread your posts and do simple spellcheck before posting.

Hi,

Finally booked my XUV5OO last weekend. First it was waiting for AT. Then realized that Mahindra didnt keep the Start/Stop button in AT. Now they added that as well. So no more excuses.

Need advice on Tyre up sizing. I see two options from what ever i research i did till now.

255/60 R17 &
265/65 R17

I needed a tyre that would fit perfectly in the frame of the car and not jut outside. Will the 265/65 be too big. Anyone who did this upgrade and with a photo to share?

Rgds./ Kiran

I booked XUV yesterday. I could only go till W6 model due to budget constraints. I have a question on alloy wheels. Do I need to replace it as soon as I buy vehicle or I can wait ? Can some one suggest a shop where I can do exchange ? Also it would be good to know cost involved.

Thank you in advance.

Just curious, why you feel the need for upsize? The stock tire size is more than adequate in size and width.

As long as you retain the tires its ok. If you want to swap tires then you better do it on first day itself within 20kms or so.
