Can you please post a few pictures too, I too am planning to replace my AWD’s Yoko Geolandars 235/60 R16 in around 2-4 K km more. Also, do the Goodyears come in 235/60 R16 size or stock 215/65 R16 only.

Default Wheel & Tyre Upgrade - Wrangler Silentrac

Following the other members here, I changed my old stock Wanderers to Goodyear Wrangler Silentrac. Retained the stock size 215/65.
  • The stock had still at least a couple of thousand km to go (completed around 39 000 km).
  • However, the tyres had already completed seven years (2012 vintage) and micro cracks were showing in between the treads.
  • Although the truck is not driven much, when it is driven however, its long distances, for hours at a stretch at max legal speeds.
  • Given the above, I felt its was better to change the old and settle for some new rubber.
  • Total damages:
  • 4 Silentrac tyres Rs 32,000/-
  • 4 new stem and valves Rs 800/-
  • Rs 500/- refund as salvage value for old tyres
  • Total paid Rs 32,300.
  • Each new tyre required less than 100 gm to balance.
  • Purchased from Cherry Agencies HO, Near Minerva Circle, Lalbagh Fort Road. Good and prompt service on a Sunday. The store manager is polite and prompt with his service. The place has the proper tools, the technicians are a professional bunch. Highly recommended.

Changed my tyres from apollo apthera 215 65 R16 to Bridgestone D684. ( retained the same size). Got made in japan but an year older stock sadly.

Are the japan ones better than the ones made in India.Hoping for the best.

Hi,

My 2013 Duster has done 80000 kms, and now am thinking of going for smaller wheels and bigger profile tyres. The second batch of shoes was again MRF Wanderers, put at 55 K, but maybe now it is time to go for 235s with bigger profiles on smaller wheels.

Will old Scorpio 15" wheels fit the Duster? If yes, what is the possible size for a bigger profile tyre? Will 235/75/15 fit the wheel wells of a Duster?

I plan to take up a long trip soon. I have two stock MRF tyres on the rear which need replacement as they are 7 yrs old now. the front wheels already have been replaced with Yoko Geolanders of the original size 215/R16. Now the dealer is unable to source the same brand saying its out of stock. He has offered Good year of the same size with a comparable threads as per photo below. do you think I can mix these with Yoko's. Apparently even Michelin's seem unavailable now. I am confused as I preferred going for the same brand across. Any suggestions /experiences ?

Non availability will make you do this once in a while. If you go with these then make sure you have the same make of tyres (with similar wear) on one axle. Yokos on the rear as they are worn out more and Goodyears on the front.

Secondly, you might want to consider the look of the tyres after they are installed. Consider matching these of the goodyears with the yokos:
-Open/Closed shoulder
-Squared-off/Rounded shoulder

Thanks, I will wait for some time, possibly Scout around some more for the Yokos, and if really doesn't work out, go for these.BTW the Goodyear Model is 'Wranglar AT Silentrack'. I did see a few previous posts on Good year and do see decent reviews. For me, its just that it a brand mix where the concern was. Thanks Again.
