I need to change my tires for scorpio mhawk now
done 40000 km in 1 year 2 months
Went to the sardarji near indranagar RTO in bangalore. He suggested Continental 235 r15 75 at rs. 5500 and a mileage of around 60000 km. (the grooves were real deep)
more than the mileage he promises good grip and ride quality considering the roads i drive. Bangalore to ooty. After mysore, the roads are not that smooth.
What would you advise?

need mileage, good ride quality on bad / bumpy roads, needs to be real easy on my purse.

I feel good year and michelin are bit soft and wear out faster (My experience in my previous 2 indigos)
Also when ever I go for my third tire change, i tend to change my vehicle. Hence this time I want a really long running tyre
Best regards

Why don't you try BF Goodrich Long Trail T/A Tour.
you do not need offroad tires, just road tires with some bad road capability.
These tires are pretty cheap as compared to others, and have H speed rating.
Have good online reputation too.

Hi
Few clarifications
what is BF? I mean which brand?
What is H Speed rating?
How does this help in rough roads and wet roads?
Any idea where we can get these in Bangalore
Best regards
Bala

Get the Yokohama Geolander AT-S. You shall not regret the choice. I personally know 6 scorpio owners who have within the last 2 months opted for this brand when they needed to change the tyres.

Got Continental AT from Sardarji near Indranagar RTO. The tires seem to be ok for city as havent gone out of town with the new set of tires. He said at least 1.5 lakhs KM. So even if I get 1 lakh km, it would be good as usually once I change my second set of tires, I have sold off my vehicle and got a new one. This has happened from my M800 days and I want to ensure I have this scorpio for another 1.5 years atleast.
Best regards
Bala

285/75/R16 isn't the right up-size for the Scorp' and that's a whole lot of speedo error that we are gonna be looking at if you managed to put one in. How do you plan to accommodate such wide tires on the Scorp ?

Dear HVK ,

I agree to ur view that it would be better to stick to the Tyre type & make which is used by the OE

M & M would surely have made lot of road tests before concluding on the type . Any upscalling might help in looks ,but might not help in mileage , durability .

A manufacturer also looks at cost in a big way. JK for example sells it's OEM tyres to the manufacturers at a throwaway price in the hope of making a killing when car owners change the tyres. They are looking at people who think like you to recover their money!

Of course, if an OEM tyre is good, there is no reason to shift to another brand. But in case it isnt, it's nice to know you have options.
