Oo-er maybe it's the extra width of the 265's that makes the sidewalls look less tall.

They're 8x16 +10 offset Mach 5 alloys - with the lock stops properly adjusted they give a much tighter turning circle allowing me to take Alpine hairpins in one go. Up grading to 265/75 16's would compromise the turning circle and loose tyre wall height which is part of the "look".


Thumbs Up thankyou, I might go for some wheels I've been looking at with that info Mr. Green Ray

Thought I'd better join the club 😁
It's a really nice steering wheel and coupled with the quick release boss for security, it's a win win situation Thumbs Up

Loaded up my petrol Defender with a pile of scrap from a Series rebuild I'm doing and took it to the tip.

They wouldn't accept the Defender, so I brought it home. Whistle

Been busy over the last few days in my USW: In the rear load space added a full width floor with two large drawers underneath. I also extended the cubby box upwards not only to give more storage but to have a more comfortable armrest.

Secret. Keeping it all to myself (and the 140,000 other daily visitors in summer Shocked ).

It's the Chamonix Valley and the photo is taken from a pocket called 'Les Bois' (for those who sort of know the valley, near the Golf Course/Flegere cable car), facing towards the Aiguille du Midi (that row of sharp peaks) and the Mont Blanc Massif. Mont Blanc can be seen as the low, boring bump just behind the dead tree, left of centre.

Summer is exceptional here and entirely misunderstood by many Brits who think there's nothing to do and it just rains. Average summer month we have just 7 days of rain, the remainder of the time (mostly) looks like the photo with temps between 28c-35c. Awesome. Worth a visit, but stay in St Gervais instead of Cham, much nicer, great campsite owned by a Defender driver. Thumbs Up

PS. Please excuse the cloud, no idea what it's doing there Whistle Monsieur Le Grenadier
