Be careful while buying Pereilli.
I had them on my Indica. The side walls of all 5 tyres cracked prematurely and I am quite carefull about driving, tyre pressure, ect.
Which rims do you intend to buy?
7J are not available with any Indian manufacturers. Only imported ones. If you are fine with them its alright otherwise that will be important to decde the tyres you buy.
255 is a bit wide for 6.5J so I refrained from these. Infact even the 235 Micheline on Aura rims fouled with the front fender which I had to trim a little.
Yes the FE will decrease a bit but nothing to realy bother about. Exact figures are difficult to derive as a lot depends on driving habits and driveabilty.
Whichever tyres, you will enjoy every bit of driving a Safari. Congrats.

OT: what is the recomended tyre pressure for 255/65 r16 geolanders? ive got them on the scorpio. I get different values from all the tyre guys here.. This is basically for city use on ok-bad roads.

Having tire pressure lower than manufacturer recommended(cold tire pressure) increases the risk of high speed blowouts, as standing wave can form. This is especially true for tires where sidewall flex is more.

I prefer a less bouncy ride so keep it lower especially since I always upsize tyres on my cars. Haven't had a problem in the past 10 odd years and 3 lac+ kms. But of course, I go down a psi or two, nothing excessive.

I have a small query. I have booked Safari Lx and i am opting for Alloy wheels with OE tyres. My question is can i use use 7J alloy with OE bridgestone H/T. Or i will have to go for 6.5J Alloy to accomodate OE Tyres.

Bump : Thinking of going for Yoko Geolandar 255/65/16 on 7 inch rims. Would like to hear from anyone who has this combo on the VTT.
