Yeah in this OTR!

Guess YOKO needs to do something or stop calling these tyres as AT. Besides tht they have lost me as a customer I feel at this point of time.

I also believe Yokohama AT tyres are highly overrated. Try the BF Goodrich...I've done about 2k on these on my scorpio and am very happy. Excellent reviews online as well.

BF goodrich All Terrain TA/KO is not available anywhere now. Its been replaced by Long Trail TA TOUR, which is a 80%highway 20% dirt track tire.
Thats why I went for Continental Cross Contact AT

I would like to know how much real off-roading you are in to. Tanveer you have seen what NIOC does. Based on that I need a tyre. Guess at the moment stuck with these yoko for at least another 6-8 months.

Any information where we can lay our hands on to 235x85x16 AT or MT tires in India.

Rahul, you probably guessed why I am on this thread. Damn, too much Yoko trashing here.

I suspect something is wrong with your Yoko AT-S tyres, may be fake or old stock. I have been having a wonderful experience with my Yokohama Geolandar AT-S tyres, both on road and off-road. I even had a 1.5 inch screw stuck in one tyre, which I didn't fix for 2 months, there was no leakage either. The offroad performance has been nothing short of phenomenal. Pretty much everybody in Karnataka offroad circle who have this tyre are very happy with it.

BTW, now my cousin is looking for Gurkha tyres. Since it came with 7.5x16 tyres, it needs at least a 31 inch tyre to keep the original GC. The only tyre size he can go for is 265/75R16, there is no other choice. Or he has to downgrade the rims to 15 inch and opt for 31x10.5R15 or 32x11.5R15.

I never realised the choice was so narrow for Gurkha.

I recently bought NEXEN ROADIAN AT2 235/85/R16 tyres for my trax. They costed me 8800 per tyre at coimbatore. the size is very hard to find and the dealer knew my situation and ripped me off. You will be better off buying 31 inch MT tyres which will cost roughly the same. I'm yet to do any off-roading on the tyre, so no review on the performance yet.

yes. 8800 per tyre. I read in here that someone paid only half the price for same sized NANKANG tyres. But prices have gone up since then and its hard to find this size.

That's practically clay, no AT tyre can survive that, let alone Geolandar AT-S.

@Samurai:

When I had booked by Gurkha, I went through the same tire finding excercise. Beboy was able to source 235/85/16 tires for his jeep. The same dealer maybe able to ship you the same size. They are some Taiwanese make. If you don't mind JK, then Brute is available in 245/75/16 which is OEM for Scorpio Getaway. It comes close to 30 inches overall. The best and cheapest (in the long run) option is to downgrade to 15 inch rims and go for 31x10.5x15.

Default Re: Offroad Rims/Tyres Thread

Guys - Need some advice on tires for Trax Gurkha.

My usage is going to be mostly in City and Highways, with occassional Mild Off-roading.

The vehicle is on 16 Inch rims that I would not like to change, if possible.

I had almost made up my mind on the Yokohama Geolander AT 265/70/R16, but have hit a supply problem on the same. I'm finding it difficult to procure the same in Delhi NCR.
So, what are my options now?

Also, I must mention that my budget is fixed, and I would not want to spend more than 25-35K for the Tire change.
