Good morning Folks, I really hope you are doing well on this long weekend and seriously jealous of the guys on the Duine Trip
I am contemplating narrower wheels for the Mrs' Patrol. Not immediately but when the time comes. Reasons are quite easy: fuel consumption, efficiency on the Kalahari roads, road noise etc. I really think we have more to gain from narrower tyres.
The current tires are Windforce 285/75/16's and I would like to move to 265/75/16 or even 235/85/16 or something similar. The wide tyres are good, yes, but expensive to replace and not necessary for our purposes.
I would need to get other rims because the current rims are 10J and narrower tyres simply don't fit that well on them, at least according to the local experience.
Can you please give me a few pointers on the selection of another set of rims? Where to start / what to look for etc? I would not mind swopping the current set for a narrower set, but simply don't even know where to start.
