The Pajero comes shod with 265/70 R15 MRF ZVRL is it good for mild offroading and highways.Or should I go for Michelin LTX or Yokohama Geolander?What size should I go for?My priorities are less road noise and good ride,and offer substantial levels of grip while offroading.Could you provide me with the approx prices of the new tyres and the buyback of the brand new Mrf?

buyback should be around 4000-4500 per tyre.

Got Yoko A Drive 195/65 R14 for my Optra yesterday over previous bridgestone 185/65 R14(thanks to Ishaan for wonderful pricing). Though bridgestone were cheaper one but still lasted around 30K or so. Ride comfort is deffinetly better in Yokos (Again, thanks to Ishaan again for the recommendation), though may be after some PSI adjustment this should increase.

Any PSI recommendations ?

Such a size should be very difficult to get in any brand.
which vehicle this is?

Yokohama does have this size on thier catalog under Geolander AT/S but I seriously doubt if you'd be able to pick one off the shelf from an authorized dealer. Did you come across this on the catalog or you've seen it on some vehicle ??

Me too got the A Drives for my Corsa Royale last month. Got good price thanks to our own brother Satya (EVO), he suggested those to me and God they are great. Amazing handling and ride comfort. Best for my trip to Bhopal in December.

CorsaLove, Ashthedivx,

Do you guys mind sharing how much you paid for the A-drives? For my new Swift-D, I paid 4k per tyre and got 1k buyback for the stock tyres and rims, so I paid a net of 3k per tyre. Tyre size is 195/60 R15.

Was just wondering if I overpaid.

Ishaan... any inputs?

Btw... I live in Bombay.


P.S. - just realized this is my 100th post!!
