Default Bridgestone Dueler

Friends,

Recently I was shown by my tyre dealer a set of 5 tyres - Bridgestone Dueller A/T tubeless having done about 800 kms. The specs of the tyre is - 31 X 10.5 X R15.

SuperView of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo

Can these be fitted on Scorpio with 15" alloys?

GD bhai, this translates to a size of 265/75 R15. The difference is OD as compared to the standard fitment is as follows:

235/75 R15 - 366.75mm
265/75 R15 - 389.25mm

So the difference in OD is around 6.13%. Which is not advisable & also I don't think this sze will fit without modificiations to the Wheel arches. Also, you will need new, wider rims to mount these on.
