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 !!!

Thank you very much for the info Peter :thumbup: to Cedrik: I think they are efficient. I would say they had initially a little bit of spare capacity but the increased de...

cost

Downside:

cost of replacing fuel lines

A month ago I came back, driving about 100km/h and the car just stopped. No lights on the dashboard, just stopped and no way to get it started again. I was hel...

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

some more feedback.... I am currently running on a mix 2/3 Garage fuel 1/3 Bio Diesel. This will change with the next fill-up in favor of a higher content of Bio Diesel...... to the point were it should be 100% Bio-Diesel. :imnewhere: there are only two points which I noticed so far. 1) As per Tijme...
