Not too happy with the Pirelli Scorpions. Had another puncture a few days back.

Will have to depend on Rahul for that, he can personally go and check it out. Michelin is available with Latitude Tour HP's, no other option. Really mixed reviews about Pirelli, no option with Continentals.

I was apprehensive post reading your views. But then, you have lots of options 265 section tires, unlike me :(

How have your tires held up? Would you go for the same tires again or look for a change this time around?

I hate very few things, punctures is just one thing I absolutely abhor.

No 2016 manufactured Scorpion ATR's available. This is the update I got.

I am ruling out Maxxis as the tire gurus on forum are asking to avoid them.

This brings me to Goodyear Wrangler AT/SA tire. Mentioned on this post as well.

Will update

Supply of Scorpions here in Gurgaon is normal. I would suggest you to wait, I guess your H/T tyres still have a lot of life left in them.

The Scorpion are almost as good as Cross Contact, we have been using both back to back for a long time, none of them suffer from Puncture issues, the Jungle trails here are full of thorns both have survived well.

Can any of the guys ship it? I am ready to pay for courier charges. I paid Rs. 800 for Michelin tires being sent from Bombay for my 250R.

Well, you have 3 options. Two are listed by you, third is the Goodyear option, just above this post.

If you are getting a recently manufactured scorpion ATR, then you may go ahead with it.

I personally would be going for the Bravo 771's. Whenever I do. I too am trying to exhuast these as I know, I won't get a penny out of these tires.

Scorpio [especially] 4WD drivers and XUV AWD drivers, rejoice. Michelin has come up with an AT tire in this size.

http://www.michelin.in/IN/en/tyres/p...tx-force1.html

Don't have any user experience but coming from Michelin, it ought to be good.

In these kind of slush/mud, wheel slippage doesn't even register, you don't realize and in the Bridgestone, that wheel would have been spinning hopelessly and just might have required the 4H engagement.

Have done close to 20,000 kms and enjoyed every moment. Tires still look and feel as good as new.
