Ian, the problem with the 10j's like that is that they are 15" rims, not 16's or 17's.

I have standardised on 17" rims and tyres. The Pathfinder came with 17s, so I very soon upped my Patrol's 16" steelies to 2 sets of 17's - one set (5) is 17 x 8j (Patrol GRX mags) with ATR tyres and a set (also 5) of aftermarket 17 x 9j with MTRs.

I’m pretty sure I just drove past a white GU on a flatbed here in harties. Maybe a 4.5?

Covered in mud and fully kitted, must have bombed out on a holiday? A Botswana casualty maybe?
