United Kingdom 2013 Defender 110 Puma 2.2 XS CSW Santorini Black
Off with the Boosts / Contis, on with the Wolfs / KM2s

Thanks to a forum purchase from pux146, the Boosts and Contis have today been swapped for a set of Wolfs sporting KM2s.

Should cope better now on the muddy foreshore where we sail and the black Wolfs look far better than silver Boosts in my opinion against the Santorini Black paintwork. Did have a 2011MY 110 XS Station Wagon in Stornoway Grey until it was nicked.

A little more noise than the Continentals, but I only really notice it when off the power and the engine is quiet.
But certainly not unreasonable. My XS SW does have full carpeting so this may help dampen down the road noise.

I would say grip in the wet isn't as good. It is hard to judge without having two vehicles side by side to jump in an out and test round the same bends with same conditions, etc, but for me the steering doesn't feel just as precise. That being said, with the Defender, I am always mindful that I'm not driving a sports car, so I do take corners at a sensible speed and avoid sudden changes in direction!! I don't know if the extra weight and offset of the Wolf's would make any noticeable difference in handling to the Boosts either. Did have a 2011MY 110 XS Station Wagon in Stornoway Grey until it was nicked.
