Re: old used up 285 / 70 /16 tyres wanted

The preferred size would be 285/70/16 (32s)..... however those once seem to be rather scares. That is why I would alternatively also look for 285 / 75 / 16.... the more common size. hence I wrote "I am looking for a set of old used up tyres of the size 285 / 70 / 16 or alternatively 285 / 75 / 16" :...

Re: old used up 285 / 70 /16 tyres wanted

Hay its not that bad! I have 285's on my green 4.5 auto, yes it is slightly slower on pull off but otherwise it was fine :thumbup: Hi Ian thanks for your input. I think Tunis was more referring to the possibility that the 4.5 auto might tend to hunt gears when using 285s . (not so much about the sl...

old used up 285 / 70 /16 tyres wanted

I am looking for a set of old used up tyres of the size 285 / 70 / 16 or alternatively 285 / 75 / 16. I want to test how this size of tyre effects the driveabilety in terms of gearing (4.5 auto). I want to test the suitability on an old set of tyres before committing to spend a lot of money on a new...

Re: Bio Diesel.... The Iron Maiden is going Green !!!

Upside:
engine runs smoother / quieter
no issue with engine start (up to now)

cost of replacing fuel lines
