    Fellow Jeepers, please put your Tyres Recommendations here.

    Bridgestone/firestone for durability.(A/T apt for Jeep).-This has stronger side walls and ready to take more hits and rough patches

    Micheline for noiseless comfort (apt for sedans in my view )- City and highway drive .softer than Bridgestone.

    Continental- similar to micheline.

    Upsized to 235/55/R17 michillen primacy

    Going good so far.

    What about Falcon all terrain tyres that come as original fit on trailhawk?

    Please note that, upsizing the tyres on the stock alloys may increase the overall traction and confidence.

    But you have to sacrifice a little decrease in torque.

    The applied torque is simply the product of  the radius of the wheel from the centre and the resultant force.

    So, when the tyre is upsized, the torque is reduced.

    I have done around 8300kms on Cooper 235/60/R17 on almost all terrains like highways, expressways, sand, rock, slush etc and it’s doing very well.  I have noticed that the 235 extra space has a better pickup and excellent braking as compared to earlier 225 stock tyres.

     

    Also the grip on slush and rock is excellent as compared at the same place where I had been with the firestone tyres. Have driven a few ghat sections and not much of issue while cornering – got used to it after few hundred kms.  Overall very happy with performance with Cooper Tyres and thanks to Jeepers across the world who recommended me to go for Cooper tyres.

    FEW POINTS THAT I WOULD LIKE TO SAY

    Upsizing the tyres will help with overall traction and braking. No doubt in that.

    But the torque offered on the wheels will decrease.

    Torque is obtained by dividing the tangential force and radius of the tyre. Assume that you consider the applied force as a constant and if you upsize, the torque decreases. If you downsize, the torque increases.

    The speedometer is also calibrated for the stock tyre sizes. Changing the tyre size will result in a speedometer error.

    If we upsize too much, there are chances of the wheel touching the wheel arch, especially on full load.

    another school of thought i would share is looks vs comfort….

    a 16 inch rim vs 18.

    a 16 inch one would have more height in the tyre wall…more comfort and less stress to the alloy wheel when off roading.

    bigger rims lesser comfort but look nice but you also need hell of smooth roads not just roads with no pot holes.

    Totally agree! One has to sacrifice something to get something.
