Yup it has the widest passenger car tyres manufactured in India. However there are wider tyres available on brands like Pirelli, Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone etc.

But the question is why would you want to fit any woder tyres on an Endeavour?? It already has extra wide tyres & putting on a wider size would a futile effort.

265/70-15 is the stock size....

Already Endeavour isn't known for its ride quality then why go in for a low profile tyre n make it worse...

I would suggest u same stock size but different rubber....Michelin or Bridgestone

Dont even think about it dude.....the suspension will go from bad to worse!
The stock MRF tyres have performed well on the Endeavour might i guess giving imported brands a shot wouldnt hurt. At 60,000Kms my stock MRF Endeavour tyres are still looking good which is creditable since it has been used a lot on the expressway at high speeds and undergone a lot of bad roads.

Friends i need some help.....I have recently bought the New Endeavour and upsized the tires from stock 245 70 R16 to 265 70 R16. The brand i have chosen is Yokohama. Now the problem is that the front tires are touching the silver colored side body cladding when i turn the vehicle. I realised it when there were 7 passengers in it. I want to go in for another change , please suggest. Also my other friends even have upsized to 275 but they are not facing any problem.

The endy I drive has 245/70/R16 as stock.
MRF ZVRL tyres. run 20k, and the tread is disappearing fast, compared to the spare tyre, which has never seen action.
I suppose they may run for another 10k if driven decently

Already looking out for a new set. Saw and liked the yoko geolandars and there was a very pricey Michelin HT that looked really delicious, will check and post.

Trying to decide if I should stick with current dimensions. Car wheelspins a lot if launched hard. also, in corners, if the acclerator is floored 2nd or 3rd, the tail steps out a "little".Not that I dont enjoy it, but, if I can put more of that torque down on the road, I'd be happier.

Is there a tyre that will give both? i.e decent traction and let me have powerslides on demand?
Ride quality is not a huge issue for our kind of usage.

EDIT
@kp just realised your post is 2 yrs old.

If he's the kind who off Road's a lot then Michelin LTX a/t will be a good option, If its a cobination of both on road and off road then he could opt for the BFG's macadam. The bfg's might not look good but trust me we have some fantastic reveiw's about its performance, Yokohama geolander is a good alternative too. Mrf have a little bit of a milege issue in this segment, to be more pricise they tend to have a lot of uneven wear no matter what how well maintanied the car and tyres are.
Upsize is a strict NO NO for the old enddy unless you 're just out to impress somebody.
If the stock size of 265/70r15 are not available you could look at 31x10.5r15 which is none the less the same as the 265's.

I know someone who has got maxxis tyres and loves them they do well on the highways as well as on OTR's. He drives an average of 200kms a day during april to july. (factory and back)
Done already 15000kms still going strong.
