Nope, no one has 225/70 R16 available in India.

For new Grand vitara, Stock size Yokohama. Geo is being supplied by Maruti directly. Part Number-43110-65J10.

Whoever needed it...

Are your sure it is an A/T tyre? The stock tyre is H/T.

It would be the same one that comes on the vehicle Samu, so I would suppose it's an H/T. Why don't you check the part number with your dealer?

Obviously it will be H/T rags. Meanwhile I found out that the BFG T/A KO tyres don't have good wet traction, got it from GV owner's forum. I guess I'll stick with stock tyres until something good comes along.

Why don't you put up a prospective list of sizes and preferences, either by brand or tyre type, as well as budget. Maybe then some of us can keep our eyes open for tyres for you.

Considering I am looking for A/T tyres, my choices are very limited. Any all-terrain tyres in 235/70R16 would pique my interest.

The OE tyres on GV (Yokohama Geolandar H/T G92C) have really bad reviews, everybody is complaining how it wears out super fast and performance goes down the tube.

I guess I am still open to BF Goodrich T/A KO. BTW, Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor is supposedly superb tyres unlike the earlier wranglers. But I don't think they have it in India. Any idea about the availability of Pirelli Scorpion ATR?

Only place where there can be a possibility of sourcing the Goodyear/Pirelli's would be the grey market & closest to you would be Bangalore. I would suggest you ask v1p3r if he can check with his contact for availability of the tyres that you're looking for. Otherwise, tough luck.

Plus, remember 235/70 is a size used on small SUV's like the Safari & not on big ones like the LandCruiser/Prado etc. so there are fewer chances of you getting these latest-gen & relatively expensive tyres in the size you want.

Secondly, have you considered what you're going to do with the stock tyres? If your dealer is willing to exchange them (slim chance since the demand for this size is going to be miniscule) then what value is he offering you? And if there is no exchange deal then what are you going to do with them?

Akshay is the local tyrewalla now? The Udupi michelin dealer says he can procure the T/A KO tyre with one week notice. So availability is not a problem.

Actually this is the puzzle I am trying to solve, 225/70R16 can fit Scorpio and Safari, considering they come with 235/70R16, it is within nominal parameters. I might have to sell them cheap though.

What would be the price of a new Yokohama Geolandar H/T G92C of size 225/70R16? At least 6K I am thinking, any ideas?

BFG I know is no issue but I meant about the Pirelli's/Goodyear's that you were asking about.

People do not downsize their tyres in India. They either ask for the same sized tyres to be put on or ask the dealer "Chaure tyre lagwane hain!!". So the dealer might not be too keen to take them on.

Did you ask the local Michelin chap if he'll take them in exchange?

Yeah should be somewhere around 6-6.5k in the open market. Maruti prices would be higher though.
