Love blindos. Have never been a fan of a the road biased 235 tyres. Just don’t look as right (To my eyes) as a rounded AT or MT pattern with more tread running onto the sidewall. 1951 80" S1 2.0
1984 90 2.25
1994 110 300TDI
1995 110 300TDI
1995 90 300TDI
2005 90 TD5

Looking through this thread and the wheel/tyre combo thread has spurred me on to invest in a set of Blindo wheels. They are ET25 and I'd be interested to hear what the majority of other people have, size of tyre and whether anyone has also fitted spacers to assist with tyre fitment. I appreciate that some have already posted this above but the more the merrier. I currently have 235/85r16 on wolf steels which I love but the Blindo was a scratch that needed scratching. I hope to fit a 265/75r16 tyre and assume I will end up with a similar stance of track but may have to adjust the stops to prevent rubbing. Anyone fitted spacers to prevent this and would that fit in the arch? Thanks for any further info

They look amazing!

I'm getting rubber fitted to my wheels on Monday, can't wait to see what they look like.

I'm going to be torn though as have genuine wolfs fitted at the moment which I really like but couldn't resist the draw of the Blindo Very Happy

Put your winter tyres on the wolfs and the normal tyres on the Blindos.
