Is this for the H/T or A/T tyres?

I have recently bought a 2004 Scorpio which has clocked 50000 Kms,running on 265/75R15 upsize tyres.

Welcome Bruns!
The correct (OEM) size would be 235/75R15 for your Scorpio.
Which Pirellis are you getting - ATR or STR?

Bruns, stick to 235/75/15.
Its been almost two years since i moved to the MRFs, and they're really really good.
The jeep is a lot more planted compared to the earlier OE Bridgestones.
Its done some 35K on the MRF's and the ware has been a shade faster than the bridgstones i think.
These costs me 4,800 odd back then, another tyre i'd suggest is the the michelin all terrain stuff, they're quite awesome, but cost a little more than the MRFs.

Once again, stay away from the 255/265s, moving to a 235 will make improve the current feel on your jeep.

manson.

Is that an upgrade?
I thought the stock size was 235/75 R15. Typo?

The only major issue that u might face is the front tires scraping the metal part behind the front bumper. I faced similar issue while i installed 255/75/15 goodyear wrangler AT/R s on my scorpio. The issue was resolved by cutting off the border piece of that metal part.

Sorry anup...that was a typo. You are right with the stock size. badboy...thanks for the detailed images very helpful.

Ok heres the scene - I am planning to change the tyres on my scorpio (2wd, non-CRDe 2004) and a tyre chap was suggesting that I install the 8060 maxxis 'trepador' tyres (same as the one on khan sultans gypsy). Is this ok to do? i currently have 235/70 R15 bridgestone stock tyres and lasted me 65k kms. My usage will be city/highway-80% and offroad (w.ghats, coorg etc.)-20%. how is the performace oh the highway...will this tyre be able to do 140+ speeds and last say 50k kms?

Frankly, i love the way these maxxis tyres look and want that butch look on my scorpio. I really do take my scorpio out in the mud quite a bit, but I also need some kind of AT tyres that perform and last on the highway as well. If you guys think maxxis is not going to work, i'm just going to install bridgestone duellers or GY wranglers (any upsize suggestions here?).

It can work on road. But I wouldnt suggest it given your needs.

You may as well go in for a Yoko Geolander series A/T pattern. The Yokos have been tried and tested by lots of T-BHP folks. You really cant go wrong with that. It has a pretty butch look too.

Uh oh, 235/75 R15, no?
The new ones use 235/70 R16.
Older ones 235/75 R15.

Dear all - the tyre size on non-CRDe Scorpios is 235/75R15 and that on CRDe Scorpios is 235/70R16. The 15 inch size comes with 6J wheel rims with a +55 mm offset with a 160 mm pcd mounting on 5 nuts. The 16 inch size comes with 6.5J wheel rims, everything else remaining the same. Please note that for steel wheels, the wheel nuts have a spherical profile on them to hold the wheels. It is not only necessary, it is IMPERATIVE that this mounting setting must not be changed in any way. This system is engineered for the vehicle and will perform its intended function. Any deviation will spoil the performance and affect safety. However, Scorpios equipped with 15 inch wheels may be upgraded to 16 inch wheels provided all other parameters remain undisturbed and production wheel rims and production tubeless tyres are used. The OD (outer diameter) of both tyres is the same. I believe all this is clear. If this is still confusing in any way, please send me a PM. I will clarify in totality.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar
