For this one you should give me a tohfu... that "Tohfu kubool karo" type
How about changing the suspension?
But I guess these days there are some CV radials also available. Maybe force traveller will come to rescue you here.
I can understand your voes, having a choice that is around 66% of the required size is always tough. Its a fact afterall that even 90% of the right size can be adjusted but if the thing gets shortened by around 1/3rd of the right size then whole joy is lost ]
1> Yes your guess was right. I do have a Tyre subsection in my Knowledge GDB with about 50 Pages of research. Just as I sent you HHO research,How Would it be if I send you the section of GDB as a "Tohfa"?, Kabool Kijiye!
2>Susp lifts? nah!
3> Force traveller has surprisingly small wheels for a large "BOX"
I'm always worried about its stability and cornering. Dad wanted to buy an AC traveller for Caravan mods, I discouraged him. I think the tyres are only 215/60 or something. A bolero has larger tyres that that BOX.
4> The Mighty 235/75 is not that small. My calculations show it must be about 28.7 Inches tall. Only an Inch difference. Did you think that the second Number (75 In this case ) is the Hight in MM?
NO sir! Its known as PROFILE or ASPECT RATIO.
Even though 235/75/R15 and 215/75/R15 have same '75' Their heights are different.
Here is a height chart I worked for each tyre-
7.00 -15- 750mm overall, Profile 180MM
235/75 R15- profile-176 MM
215/75 R15- Profile- 161 MM
195 R15 LT ZGP- 156MM
Naturally, anything below 235 is too small.
I think I'll just go for the big fat 235s and enjoy the macho look!
