well dippy
the mileage would go down too, the dealer said not to expect more than 4 or 5 if i put them to my safari, and also i wonder how the tyres fit in a rim made for 235 or 255 size tyres,
would you need spacers for these kinda tyres??

yo gto, how abt tyres like these on ur jeep??!!!!!

hey aadix, if you are talking abt the green sierra with Hankook tyres, it belongs to a coleague of mine in office. i have seen it, doesnt have any spacers. But i have seen the driver struggling to steer the sierra in the parking lot

No thanks pal. Would be a classic case of all show and no go. The 225s suit me fine.

Hey everybody!
well, those 295 tyres are available from ASHOKA Tyres on minister road, secunderabad.(HYD)

but that person in ashoka tyres, my friend, advised me jus not to go for them! he keeps them for the demand, but as a friend, he jus suggested me the best for my scorpio wud be the 255 or 265... i am putting the 255 size of Pirelli - P Zero System, costing Rs.7,500/- per tyre, and they r more for onroad less for offroad....my drive is mainly onroad, and i drive my scorpio like its a 1.5vtec honda city

so guyz,,dont even think of the 295's and dont think of any size more than the 265's. coz any thing more than 265, will hit the body while turning, and will mess up ur turning radius, in turn spoiling ur handling at speeds...

bro's mods r fun..but dont let them be a disturbance to the vehicles handling/stability.

asta lavista!

hey there Maybach,

i have a diesel Scorpio.

and i drive it as if its got Mugen Power in it!

well, datz jus why, due to excessive revving ups n driving not more than third gear, i get a maximum mileage of 7.5kmpl!

guys, u have such a sexy power steering in it, that u can actually ZigZag in the city roads in the Scorpio, teaming up with some great On-Road tyres! 255 Pirellis its gonna be!
