Thank you very much for your valuable feedback karan561 and Turbanator

Although you guys don't approve of upsizing, I have already purchased the wheels. Hence, I shall try out both the tyre sizes and update you guys on the perfect fit.

Also, per your suggestion, I plan on retaining the OE wheels & tyres, in case of any hassles in the future.

Quoting you here, as BHPian 1100D too didn't have good experience with Continental Cross Contact AT for his 2010 Scorpio 4X4. Have discussed this in length with him & he is surprised as well as disappointed because this tire too has good reviews like the Scorpion ATR's.
BTW, I went for Wranglers.

Rims = INR 25,000 per wheel
Tires = INR 21,000 per tire
Body Kit (including side step cover) = INR 49,000

Just for your information, we (myself & my father) carried all of it back to Chennai on Thai Airways. It incurred some extra costs:
Excess baggage charge = INR 27,000
Customs Duty (36.05%) + Redemption fine + Personal penalty = INR 53,000

After much research I changed the tyres on my 4x2 AT as the OE Dunlop’s were at 60k with another 10k or so left in them! With the fortuner seeing long highway runs I decided to change them early. Have gone for the Pirelli Scorpion ATR (285/65/17) and has it made a difference! The ride is way more planted at high speed compared to the Dunlop’s and even mild off-roading inspires a lot more confidence! Apart from the regular warranty also got a one year warranty covering cuts where I’d just need to pay 50%of the tyre cost and get a new tyre in the unfortunate even of any tyre getting a cut! All in all I’d happily recommend the Pirelli Scorpions to anyone looking to upgrade!

My 2013 Fortuner has just completed 63k on stock Dunlops and is begging for replacement of shoes. After getting reliable performance from Dunlops, I have made up my mind to stick with them.

On enquiring about Made in Japan Dunlop Grandtrek AT20 from Toyota, they quoted Rs 29100/- per tire. However, when I went to a local tire dealer here in Bangalore (Cherry Agencies, JC Road), he is offering 2017 Made in Japan Dunlop for Rs. 13500/- per tire.

Why such a large difference? Am I being taken for a ride at the tire dealer?

Are there any pointers as to how to identify a genuine tire? Please help.

I have the Toyota Fortuner(4WD-AT) with the stock Dunlop A/Ts.My vehicle has done 48000kms with several roadtrips(2big ones-Rajasthan&Spiti Region) and so far two tyres have been repaired for minor punctures.There are no signs of uneven wear on the tyres&sometimes I run them on nitrogen.What would be a good time to replace them?

You might cross check at Madhus which is apparently well trusted by Bangalore BHP folks.

You haven’t mentioned which tyres you’re running sid! However, the OE Dunlop’s are known to last for 80 k plus if maintained well! Even if you’re running bridgestones id say there should be no need to change em for another 20k or so kms! Just be diligent with your tyre rotations and alignment! Hope his helps answer your query!

Sorry you have mentioned the brand you’re running! Answer remains the same as far as Dunlop’s are concerned!

When the Fortuner came earlier with Dunlop AT 20 tyres made in Japan they were good.
Now it comes with the Bridestone Dueler H/T 689 or A/T 693 tyres. My advice is to stick to these tyres as replacement tyres.

Irrespective of what you think about the tread depth left, replace tyres at 50,000 KM or 4 years if you drive your Fortuner on the highway.


Both are good enough for mild off roading and sity / highway driving with the H/T being better on sealed tarmac surfaces.

My Fortuner 4x2 AT (2014) is still on OE Dunlops and have run 84000 kms but now in need of replacement. Main usage has been highway runs followed by city usage. Looking for a tyre with a better road grip and braking followed by lower road noise. Off road usage is next to nill.

After enquiring I came across 4 options.
Dunlops 13500
Michelin LTX Force 13000
Yokohoma Geolanders 13000
Bridgestones 13000

Any suggestions as to which option should I choose among the above ?

My Fortuner 4X4 AT (2015) is running the OE Dunlops.The tyres have done about 63,000 kms till know. I have experienced some niggles with this tyre including weak sidewalls (severe cracking) during off-roading and choppy ride quality. Currently, I am on the look out for a tyre which draws a balance between off-roadablity and ride quality. I am confused between the Conti Cross-Contacts and the Yokohama Geolanders. Kindly help!!!!!

Hi. I own a MY 2015 Fortuner which is due for a tyre change. The OE Dunlops were very good and my odo stands at 70k with 10% thread left. I had approached TyreX in Cochin, because I had a good experience with them, for a set of 4 tyres OE Dunlop Grand Treks. He gave me a quote and said I might need to wait a few days for the tyres to arrive. As my service was due, I made a booking with the A.S.S and casually asked them for a quote and I was quoted a little more than double what TyreX Cochin had quoted. I'm now very confused. Is it really that costly ? Is the dealership pulling a fast one on me ? Or should I just buy a set of Conti Cross contacts and be at peace ? Please help. Thanks in advance.
