Any advantages or disadvantages I should be looking out for? A bit of Increased Road noise , harder steering, increased FE I can settle for.
Concerns are harder/ bouncier ride , aquaplaning issues & if there will be increased wear & tear on suspension or other parts due to increased weight.
I go to Ladakh ,Spiti 1-2 times a year. Rest of the time tarmac.
Please advise.
The added 30 Kgs, IMHO, isn't going to prove to be a problem for the suspension. Enjoy the BFG's

On road performance might not be as good as best HT tire but will be comparable to a good HT. There is no competition come offroad. I haven't heard people complain much about road noise or grip.
Thanks.
Will it affect the acceleration as such ?

There will/might be some impact on suspension, acceleration and fuel economy but for Fortuner it may not be an impact to be worried about. Suspension is quite abuse friendly and should do fine with BFG. Steering will feel heavier though.

Had Continental Cross Contact R17 size which served well. They were smooth for city usage.
Changed to Bridgestone Deullers AT 693. Main difference is better grip on roads. But felt more resistance due to the increased grip.
Road noise is ok. Better grip than the Continentals on mud and rough roads. Though nothing exceptional.
Had them on my Scorpio and they lasted for 75 kms with some tread still left before changing to the same brand again. Suffered only one puncture. Touchwood.

So if it’s for decent pace city driving and highway use then they’re good enough and are moderately priced and last really long.
Got them for 12500 each from the official dealer.

Hi,
Does anyone know who is authorised distributor for Lenso wheels in India ?
From what i could gather SpeedPro is listed on the Lenso website and apart from them Autopsyche handles the North
(the information may not be correct and up to date)

Any help is greatly appreciated
