Gypsy on Steroids: Maxxis Trepador M8060 MT. Update Now on Yoko Geolander MT!
After the lockers, & rock-crawler t-case gearset jobs, the existing tyres were a huge let down to the capabilities of my Gypsy. The MRF Zigma GP tyres were no match for the increased off-road capabilities of the Gypsy.
Hence there was no way out for me but to upgrade the tyres to proper mud terrain tyres. After much looking around & research, I settled on the Maxxis Trepador m8060 tyres in 235/75/15 size.
After nearly 2 weeks of the tyres lying in my room, I got the tyres installed today on my Gypsy.
These are proper mud terrain tyres and are supposed to be great in mud, rocks & trails. These are directional, self cleaning pattern tyres.
I will keep on updating this thread with the performance of these tyres -- both on-road/off-road
Must say that the Gypsy looks mean with these tyres now -- no nonsense mean off-road machine.
Congratulations pal, what's with the teaser pic of the tires,where's the pic of the gypsy with the tires shod on them. We don't wanna see them stocked in your room, albeit on the gypsy would make for eye candy. So get off and click some pics rite away.
Very nice! The Gypsy must be a delight to go Off-roading. My buddy's uncle used to be an avid off-roader back in the days. Some area close to Yercaud used to be his play-area,with some tricky terrain to deal with.
