Default Re: Mahindra Scorpio : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

In the current variants, the S9 variant does not come with Alloys. I am planning to go for alloys (new car purchase), and is that a good idea? If so, is there something that I need to be wary of. Does the alloys have the same width for the stock tyre to go in exactly like how it was with steel rim?

The alloys costs a bomb as part of dealer accessory and not many designs to choose from. Whereas there is no dearth of choices from outside. Can I go for an outside shop which also looks to be cheaper and great choices available. Any warranty issue would pop up? Any thoughts overall?

Planning on changing my 5 year old 28000km done OE tires on my Scorpio S10 AT to the BFG AT 265/65/R17. Will this upsize work as the stock is 235/65/R17?

Use a tyre calculator like the one on tyrestore.in and see for yourself

Current RR: 368.65 mm
New RR: 388.15 mm
Current circumference: 2316.29 mm
New circumference: 2438.82 mm

Difference in circumference: 122.53 mm or 5.29%

It should be 2% or less to be a feasible upgrade.

You can try 255/60 R17 - barely 0.8% difference and some good tyres. Do you really need all terrain tyres? If not highway/terrain ones give you far more choice.
