Is dit nie anders om nie? :think:

Maar hoe pap wil jy regtig jou bande ry? My bande is gewoonlik 1.2-1.4 wanneer ek offroad gaan. Jy gaan nerrens met 'n 285 kan uit ry waar jy nie met 'n 255 kan nie. (of 'n 235 vir arguments onthalwe). 'n groter wiel diameter gaan jou meer help offroad as 'n breer band.

Interresante ding is dat die ouens oorsee betaal meer vir 255/85r16's as vir 285's...

P.S. maar ek stem saam 285/75r16 is die perfekte grote vir 'n patrol... maar eish, R5k meer vir 'n stel....
Ek ry met 0.9 - 1.0bar as ek offroad.....selfs in klippe. Ek het 305/75/16 op en het die hele Jamboree en berg roete met 1.0 bar gery

The MT2's appear to be narrower, yet taller than the st maxx's.
The st maxx's got about 15k km on them. They are on a 8j patrol mag, the mt2's on a 6.5jj patrol steel rim.
