No doubt these tyres are so good, best example is of the DUSTER whose ride quality has been much appreciated is equipped with MRF Wanderer 'SPORT'.

I think these tyres have been specifically developed for the DUSTER if im not wrong, also heres a pic of the DUSTERs underbody (from T-bhp official review ) to give an idea of the Footprint which is pretty wide for 215's;

Duster's do come with these as OE. Guess with the ride quality of Duster being appreciated, the tyres too should get some applause ?

I might go get these for my Safari today. Any idea how much these costs?

Edit:
Online searches hows it as 6800rs.

Went and bought two. Costed 6600/tyre.

Saw a Duster on my way back. The Wanderer it has and for Safari is very different.

Pix attached.

Congo for the tires, always a good feeling to have snap a fresh set of tires on your ride

The difference in tread pattern is simply because the Duster is running on Wanderer "SPORT" & the ones you've bought are Wanderer A/T

Sport looks too 'carish'. If you want something like that checkout Yoko's HT too.

JK, arent you supposed to put new tyres at the back, let them run-in a bit & then move them to front ?

Is it so? I have always seen people putting the new to the front. Do confirm.

6600/tyre is good price for 215/65 R16.
With the arrival of Duster, this tyre size seems to have become one of the "mainstream", good for my Tucson :-) Back in 2011, I had to buy Yokohama Geolanders AT for Rs.8300/tyre!!! Maintaining SUV is taxing...

Yes. It's better technically to put the new tyres at the rear.

Just google for it. You'll get lots of links advising the same.

Its 235/70 R16 for 6600Rs.

I guess Yokos would definitively be 7k plus.

JK has a Safari. The Duster in the pics was for comparison.

I have the MRF Wanderer on my GV since October. No regrets so far.
