old used up 285 / 70 /16 tyres wanted

Post by Picasso » 06 Jul 2018 21:02

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 set.
So if anyone in the Gauteng area consider changing to a new set of tyres or has a old set lying around which I could purchase for little money and a handshake.... please let me know.
i know ...... i am a cheapskate :imsorry:

Thanks Tinus for this generousness offer; but I rather keep on the look out for a used set .....

Just imagine I accidentally stuff up your wheels :surprised:

otherwise ...... are you saying the 285s are not working on an 4.5 auto ? :think:

Same offer from me.

Different size, but also 33" diameter and much cheaper than Tinus's to replace.

Big thank you to you as well Peter ..... but I would feel equally bad irrespective of price or make...

25 years ago my (ex) boss was so kind and borrowed me his wife's CAR... and then it happened :redface:

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 slower pull off).
What is your experience ? How does yours behave when cruising at 100-120 km/h ?

Please read carefully, he is looking for 285/70/16 (31,7") tyres not 286/75/16 (32,8")

I dont see how this size could have any negative effect

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"
