I would highly recommend checking out the Michelin All-Terrains (A/T range). Have been using them on my Jeep since 2 years and the performance is fabulous.

Michelins command a price premium, but they additional $$$ is well worth it.

Tool go for either Michelin's or Yokohama's, both are very good tyres. Cost wise last I checked the tyres would cost about 7k apiece give or take 500 rupees. Regarding dealers in Delhi, there are a lot of them and JB should be able to sort you out. However, if you still need help give me a call/PM once you're down here & we'll have you sorted out!

And tyre size should be 265/70 R16.

I too am looking for tyres, for my Landcruiser. Size is 275/70 R 16.

Tool,
If going for Bridgestones, look at "Dueller A/T Revo", not "Dueller A/T". Yokohama Geolander A/T II+ is also good but since you already have it on your Pajero, could you give a quick review? DRIVEN has a good deal on them. I haven't seen too many Michelin's on SUV's in India.

Gears,
Red-One.

Can't recommend any SUV tyres to you as I don't really know much about the various models available.

However, do you want to go for more highway oriented tyres or some offroad oriented ones ?

As for a tyre shop in Delhi , I can recommend BK Tyres in Lajpat Nagar - in the car market near the flyover Tel is : 29812020.
(A-108, Lajpat Nagar 1).

cheers

Default SUV Radial Tyres

Hi Guys,
We have members with Various Radial Tyres on Their JEEPs.

I'll rank them on popularity (no. of people using a model/pattern)
Effectiveness of Mud/ Rock/ Sand/ Dirt/JungleTrack

Tyre Mud Rock Sand Track
1) Bridgestone Dueler H/T 30% 40% 50% 50%
2) Pirelli Scorpion A/T 60% 60% 80% 70%
3) Goodyear Wrangler A/T 50% 50% 80% 70%
4) Yokohama Geolander AT+2 70% 60% 70% 70%


The criteria were.
1) Mud - Self Cleaning Ability/ Bite/ Floatation
2) Rock - Side Wall Strength/Flex/ Bite
3) Sand - Floatation/ Acceleration/ Bite
4) Track - Acceleration/Braking/Bite

Floatation - Ideal Floatation for a SWB JEEP (CJ3B) - Tyres Width 235mm-255mm
- Ideal Floatation for a MWB JEEP(MM540) - Tyre Width 255-290mm (Thats too much but we have MM540s with those sizes ;-0

Regards,

Arka

Default Tyres for the Pajero

Hi,

I have been using the Michelin ATs 235x75x15 on my Pajero for the last 70k kms without any issues which include trips to Ladakh and Lahaul Spiti from Bangalore. ( I am a very sedate driver!! ).

I am now looking to upgrade the tyres to 265x70x15 ATs but I find that there is no availability of this size in most of the brands due to the famous/ infamous ISI issue.

Any idea when this would be resolved and any alternatives available in the market - Bangalore/ Pune /Delhi? I am looking to replace my existing tyres in a month or so.

TIA

Hi,

Tried the Delhi, Pune and Bangalore mkts but no luck with the tyre size. I think the only choice I wld have is for Apollo or MRF.

Would anyone have comments on which of the two brands is better??

TIA

Default re: What are the best tyres for a Mitsubishi Pajero?

Further on my saga to purchase tyres for my Pajero. I had dropped a mail to ChangeMyTyre.com and got a response that they have Michelin Latitude Cross and Geolander ATs in addition to Apollo ATs in size 265x70x15.

When I checked with Michelin and Yoko folks they mentioned that imports of this size has not been started so I have written to the folks at ChangeMyTyre.com on the details of the tyres but there has been no response.

Would anyone be able to explain as to how the regular dealers do not have tyres of this specification (and I have checked with dealers in Bangalore, Delhi, Pune) but the folks at this site have them?

TIA
