    hmmm
    i believe the boost in grip you are experiencing is more due to the imported quality rubber as compared to local servis. size may have contributed a little but not much.

    Guys how about painting the rims to matt black.. ? I know it looks cool and gives an illusion of tyre being extra wide.. But how about paint job reliability? When opened for puncture etc does the surface gets scratched easily?

    Matt Black Powder coating would me a better and long lasting solution for rim painting after removing chrome, normal paint wouldnt last long and would be more vulnerable to scratches powder coating would be more durable and a long term solution, i did once inquire about it from pindi and the painter was asking Rs.2000/- for matt black powder coating in bhaatee with first removal of chrome by some process he was telling me, paint would include powder coating rims, spokes and brake drum.

    well it doesn't get scratch easily.. depends on how u hv done the sanding job prior painting... but the way mechanics fight with their tools to fix the tire... it obviously get scratches which can be fix later with spray.. as u r more into long and off road routes and prone to more punctures i would advise u to go with powder coating... one time solution with peace of mind..

    You can find good range of brand in 3.00-18 or 90/90-18 .. If you are looking for local tyres then panther is best option available. But if you are looking for imported ones then dunlop or any korean brand will do the job.
