The All new 2020 Mahindra Thar is aesthetically appealing like the beautiful Thar desert. The rugged and tough stance of the vehicle will definitely make everyone have a glimpse at it. The vehicle truly provides the experience and attitude of a veteran but with new gizmos on-board, it assists best in the toughest of the toughest situation. We at TyrePlex believe that the setup of the tyres which Mahindra chose is good but they could have done a better job. Yes, Off-course they function well but the appearance and toughness could have been a notch better.

About the tyre:
The BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A Baja Champion is indeed a champion since it has been specially designed to meet the quality and performance requirements of the cars developed by leading manufacturers. The tread design provides more rubber on the outside shoulder giving increased grip or traction while cornering and ultimate braking performance in dry conditions. The tyre compound reduces intra-molecular friction and aquaplaning resistance to withstand the extreme conditions in India.
The BFGoodrich tyres provide excellent stability while driving the 2020 Mahindra Thar on highways. The Tread pattern with larger outer shoulder helps in Precise steering control during lane-change. The stiffer rib and the specially optimized contact patch provides high precision steering.
The advanced compound contributes to longer tread life and confident handling even in wet and dry conditions. The tyre provides all- season performance thanks to the grooves and sipes that gives superior grip and traction.
The setup here is a little different. The aim was to create a muscular appearance of tyres which the rest of the vehicle evidently projects. The new tyres get 285 mm of width which is quite wider than the stock tyres that is sized- 255/65 R18.
