Do you perhaps have a photo or two of your bakkie with the 235's on?
Would like to see how they looked compared to the 285's..

Hi Russ

These pictures are beautiful, but take ages to download. Seems to be more than 4mb each.
Any chance you can trim them down a bit?

Not sure why the files are so large as i was sure these to trimmed to VGA long time ago. Will pull them out and resize again.

Apologies for this. I myself HATE people who post large files on a browser type site.

Not Really... I went from 285's to 235's and back to 285's and i didnt notice any change in fuel.

The thing that effect fuel the most is heavy headwind or a loaded roof rack... but both of these infulences have to be quite severe . The patrol 4.2 N/A seems to chug away at the same rate regardless.

As for tyre size, as i've stated elsewhere... i prefer the look of the 285's ,, and i DEFINITELY prefer the way the Pickup handles and drives, in all conditions on the 285's... i will NEVER go back again.

285's are a good match for this large bakkie and handles the weight of a loaded rear far far better than the 235's did. The smaller tires made the rear feel very unstable under weight and tended to sway more, prob due the sidewall flex on the 235 being greater the the 285..

Anyway,.. i'll be sticking to these, love em.
