Thanks Iraghava! I am currently running the Michelin A/T's on my Classic, albeit in a 225 patch. I am very happy with the rubber. If its available in 31x10.5, that would probably be my choice.

This size is not all that expensive, is it? I think I paid about 5 grand (would need to confirm) to Saifee for the Michelins in '03.

3. The Classic originally came with wire wheels (attachment 1), but Mahindra replaced them with a smart 5 spoke design later (attachment 2). They are pretty robust wheels, and have been tested by Mahindra in offroading applications. Do you want to try sourcing these. Alternatively, have you seen the three spokes on mine? They'd be easier to find.


I have recently bought a classic two days back in baroda after searching for more than 2 years.I m looking for an extra alloy wheel 5 Spoke which you are mentioning as I got only 4 of them with this classic. I have tried searching here in scrap market but didnt found any.

If you can tell me any source of getting those, It would be great.

I have been silently reading your post on your mahindra classic and the modification you have performed on it but since I didnt had any jeep , I didn't wrote anything. But now when I have finally got one ,I have plenty of enquiries which I will post as I work on the classic gradually.

Default Re: Help on Rim & Tyre change on Mahindra Classic

Check out Michelin all terrains. I am extremely happy with them.

EDIT: 235/75 R15 is the best tyre size for the CJ340 / Classic.
On a Mahindra Classic, Can we not use the Army style 16inch RIM with 7.50X16 sand & Highway/ Bullet Tyres?
One of my friend has them on a CJ3b and they look really wow.
