Yep, its Prerana. And, yes the sales guy later clarified that there wont be an issue with the warranty.

On tyres: I will get Yokos only after 15 days. So, I will get to experience the Bridgestones for some time!

That might seriously dent the resale of your Bridgestones, unless you have a prior understanding with your tyre dealer.

I got the tires changed immediately.. Got a very good rate.. If you use them then the resale drops.. In turn you will have to shell out more..

What my point here is that if you are anyway going to change the tires..change them the next day...make sure that you dont even cross 100Km mark.. and get used to driving on the new set itself..

Please excuse me for the novice query. But I assume all the tyres being talked about as the replacement of the original TATA provided tyres are the tubeless one. Is this assumption correct?

No Godfather is talking about aftermarket fittment tyres...
He replaced his stock tyres given by TATA with Hankook Dynamic 255/65 16"

Default Rim width..

Does anyone know the rim-width of a stock steel wheel on safari? The e-brochure of safari lists the rim dimensions as 6.0Jx16. I am hoping that the e-brochure is old and they have changed it to 7".

Why am I asking this: Most 255-wide tyres requires a rim wider than 6". For example: Michelin Synchrone: 255/65 R16 has an approved width of 7.0" - 9.0", with 8" listed as optimum. (source: Michelin Australia)

Thanks,
Su-47

Yes.. I have changed the Tires to Tubeless one's.. I got Bridgestone Duelers tube type.. The reason i went in for the change are

1. Wider tires = More road grip + control
2. Tubeless Tires = No headaches of immediate punchers.. Imagine trying to Jack up a Safari and trying to change the tire on busy Bangalore roads
3. Better looks

Even the LX rim's are 6.5J x 16". All the tires size are same be it 4x4 or a 2WD

I browsed website of bridgestone and came across the following
Bridgestone India Private Limited

Is this the tubeless one that you chose?

I think you are confused here.. I had got Bridgestones Duelers (TubeTypr) radials from company as stock tires..
Which later on i changed to Hankook Dynamics 255 / 65 16"

I dont have the stock company radials anymore..

Thanks Godfather for the clarification. Personally I dont like wider tyres on the DICOR but I understand your point about the road grip as well
Slightly out of context( for this thread ) query, but has some DICOR owner tried his hand on upgrading the interiors/upholstery of the DICOR. If yes can myself be pointed to the right thread

Default Welcome Safari.

Gents,

Got delivery of beautiful Silver-Safari on Tuesday evening.

Mr. Murphy has decided to interfere and I've been crushed under work-pressure. Haven't been able to drive it much :(.

Tomorrow should be a little better. I will take it out to add a couple of accessories:
- Tyre change to Michelin 4x4 Synchrone (highway + light offroading).
- ICE: Not decided yet! ( May be Alpine/Pioneer HU + JBL 6" on all four doors. Thats it! )
- Sunfilm: Not decided again. Need something in light shade with decent heat-blocking performance. Howz LLumar Platinum?
- Rear visibility improvement: Suggestions?? How about a mirror which is mounted on top of the rear glass? I think that it would be helpful to see the rear-bottom of car while reversing..

Gotta be back at work! Will try to write about the buying experience etc. later.

Cheers,
Su-47

Excellent choice, they are good tyres. Slightly expensive but worth it.

Try LLumar or 3M both are very good.
