Default Re: Mahindra Scorpio : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

Hi Folks,

Sorry for the delayed response, as I was tied up with some work and couldn't follow up.

So far, I have received the following quotes from various sources:

Specs: 235/70 R16

MRF Wanderer AT - 6800/- [Being Considered]
GoodYear Wrangler AT - 7700/- [Being Considered]
[Highest quote received was 8800/- for the one with raised white lettering on the side walls, gave that one a pass]

Following are options I am not considering.

Yokohama Geolander - 6400/- [Due to sidewall concerns]
Bridgestone Dueler HT 689 - 8400/- [Currently on them, but wanted a change]

So now, its a straight up toss between the GoodYear and the MRF.

Any suggestions on which to opt for?

Good Year or the MRF?

Thanks for your suggestions so far everyone, I finally decided to go ahead and procure the GoodYear Wranglers AT/SA for my steed.

I did read some good reviews from our fellow TBHPian @Sheel.

[http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...l#post3971859] (All-Terrain Tyres for the new-gen Mahindra Scorpio?)

I got a quote of 7500/- INR per tyre including balancing and wheel alignment. The tyres come with 2 yrs unconditional warranty from the manufacturer, and look good too! Hence sounded like a great deal.

Some pics to go as well!

Hi Folks!

I am currently driving a Mahindra Scorpio S10 2015 model. Covered 51000 km in about 2 years. I usually do long highway trips, the last one being from Delhi - Hyderabad about 3 months back.

I am looking for a tyre change now. Currently the vehicle is running on 235/35/R17. I am looking for a +zero upgrade to 255/60/R17. I shall be using the stock alloy wheels.

I need help with the below

1. The recommendation of brand and model of tyres
2. Pros/Cons of the + zero upgrade
3. Recommended shops at Hyderabad for the purchase

Regards

Project Rubber - Time for some new shoes for my 2012 Scorpio.

Thanks to the Stock MRF Wanderers 235/70/R16 - These factory fit tyres never let me down anytime anywhere in the span of Six years and 75000 Kms on ODO. With some extra care like alignment, Rotation and Balancing every 5000 Kms kept every single ride smooth and break-free. Believe it or not, the very first puncture was somewhere in 2015 and the second one on 2017. Two more at the same time in the previous week suspecting due to a new tyre repair (puncture shop) that was opened near my house is spilling nails all over the lane. Though there is still some rubber left to push to another 10-15K, I am not willing to compromise on safety.
Yes ! its time for some new shoes

Type of Roads - I do mostly City+highway drives and very less off-roading Being a 2WD. Still would expect the tyres to manage bad roads and some rough terrains (Planning for Spiti and Leh with the new set).
Speeds - Mostly 120+ on Highways.

Requirement - Being Performance as the main factor, I am looking for tyres that has -
Good wet & dry grip (+ Cornering Grip)
Off course better Breaking than any ..
Less tyre noise.

Options - shortlisted based on some of the threads and posts related to Tyres in Teambhp -
1) Michelin LTX Force
2) Bridgestone DUELER 689

Now I am also hearing that Tyre up-size will slightly reduce the body roll on Scorpio, give good breaking, good grip at corners being wide - Exploring options on upgrading from 235/70/R17 to 255/60/R17.

Need experts advise here -
1) Michelin or Bridgestone (Or even open to learn on any other tyres that are better than these)
2) Right tyre size upgrade that does not affect the ride stability / Steering response. Might also add Alloys to the new shoes.

s.
That is a load of smilies there.

You have got me confused, you have a 2012 Scorpio which should imply, it has 16 inch wheels and you are exploring 17 inch wheels? I am unsure as to how successful would that be, that being said, there are many more options in 16 inch and they are cheaper as well.

For 16 inch, my options would be
# Michelin Ltx AT2
# Yokohama Geolander
# Bridgestone 689

For 17 inch tires, we have a new thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3971859]
