Hi guys,

I recently bought a RxZ Adventure 4WD in Jan 2017. Earlier I and a friend had been to Pune quite a few times during monsoons in his 110 RxZ 2012 and I wasn't really happy with grip level of standard MRF 215 section tyres. So immediately after booking my Duster, I had spoken with a friend for Tyre swap on my soon to be home duster. Accordingly went ahead and got Yokohama Geolander 235/60 R16. The friend had agreed a full value buy back for my MRF tyres. So I had to shell out only 2K per tyre for the Yokos. I've had 4 highway trips of 800 odd KMs and must say grip is phenomenal. I even tried hard cornering on expressway and the tyres exceeded my already high expectation. Only flipside is the compound seems to be on a softer side and may wear out earlier than MRFs. And the tread pattern is such that a lot of gravel, stone keeps getting stuck. At any given point in time you can find around 20 odd stones stuck in every tyre.

Few pictures of the job.

Cheers!

Hi, my Duster is just shy of 60km in 3 years. I think I need to replace my tyres. My questions:
1) Is 60k good tyre life?
2) Suggestions for replacement? I mostly commute on good roads. But we do drive out often on 1k round trips. Mild off roading (more to get around obstacles rather than off roading for the sake of it). I'm ok with standard size. But can look at changing if recommended. On the expressway I will drive at about 130 or so. I fully utilize the turbocharger on clear roads. But mostly a sedate driver. Could do with lesser tyre/road noise.
3) What are the prices for the same?

Please inform the dealer from whom you got the Yokos. Is it in Kottayam?
Thanks

That was the place at Nagampadom by the name of C M Kurien or similar. Opp to Hotel Fairmont/Indraprastha. Tyre is just about ok, . Frankly speaking couldn't find much difference from stock MRFs. But the rates for Yoko s at this place was cheaper than Ernakulam.

Hi Duster owners. Need tyre advice.

My MRFs are near end of life and I have run 38k KM. Not sure if that's good enough.

I am looking for specific features:
- quite, atleast better than the MRF
- longer life, not so soft that i have to change tyres again @ 40k KM
- no need of up-size
- mostly highway driving

I guess the conventional brands are Yoko, Michelin and Bridgestone.

Please share your experience/inputs

Changed the stock MRF Wanderers to Continental ComfortContact LX2. Upsized from 215/65 R16 to 235/60 R16. Too early to notice the difference in driving apart from a tad better ride quality. Shall give review upon more usage.

The tyre :
