A sidewall puncture? How old (kms/years) are these tyres?

Hi,

I have a Xylo E9 with Bridgestone Dueler A/T having done 40K kms. I am going to Spiti this month and hence need new set of rubber. I am not confident of the current tread on my tires in the hilly terrain and hence looking for change otherwise my current tires can be good for another 15k kms.
I have currently shortlisted Goodyear Wrangler AT/SA 215/75 R15 tire. I am not considering Yokos owing to weak side walls though some members may have got good experience of using them even in hilly region. Spoke to a dealer who said BS-D are not of good quality nowadays and Yokos owing to they being prone to side wall damages suggested me to go with GY Wranglers. I saw the Yokos and Wranglers side by side and could easily make out the thickness of the side walls in one instance.

Back of my mind, I also have MRF Wanderers being AT tires. Have gone through the blog here and hence want to know which should I consider better. MRF or GY. I am not in much favor of Miclelins either. It just seems to be trend nowadays to have Yokos or Michelins as an up market feel. I may be wrong as well.

I have seen many scorpios with the wanderers and they come as OEM for Duster. Help me clear the air.


Regards,

I am about to replace the stock Bridgestone Duellers on my Storme with new tyres. After having gone through the entire set of options, I am now slowly moving down the chain and seem to have got the MRF Wanderer A/T, the Apollo Apterra A/T and the Good Year Wrangler A/T as choices. If not these, then my choice is Continental Cross A/T. I am not interested in Michelins, Yokos or other such. I have been offered Wanderers at 6200/- per tyre.
Looking at the posts here, the Wanderer seems to be a good, hard wearing option, which can tackle fairly bad roads with ease. What I want to know is if there is anything else in the similar price range that is as good or better. BTW, the Contis are coming at 7800/- per tyre, so that's quite tempting too.

I am currently using Apollo Hawkz/AT R16 stock tyres on my Scorpio. Have done 50K Kms in the last 3.5 years. Though there is no visible wear n tear, still I suppose its time to replace the tyres, as I will be planning some hill trips in 2016. I have shortlisted Continental Cross/ MRF Wanderer AT. Need a feedback on which one to go for.

I have them (Wanderer AT) on my Scorpio, got them as OE. So far, they have been good and I don't have any reason to complain. I have been to some offbeat places which have practically no roads but just mud and rocks. These didn't give up or anything. Yes, I am a bit careful in saving in sidewall hits but that's about it. Grip levels offered are decent. No experience with Contis, though I know they were highly recommended by tsk1979.

maybe I missed updating this thread!
Do refer : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...ml#post3985365 (Mahindra Xylo : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread)

these days driving has lessened, current ODO is ~171000 KMs, which means 2 x MRF-W (front) have done about 16K KMs, doing well.
