Would I do that Mr. Green

4 arrived today from Demon Tweeks, fantastic service I must say and great price Thumbs Up

One to follow from elsewhere as they told me they only had 4.

Just a bit worried they look quite big Rolling Eyes

The size is why I chicken out and stuck with 235x85, but now regret it as I've seen several 255x85 and they look great!!

I should have said this earlier but... I found Tyres Direct one of the cheapest places at £514.75 inc VAT delivered for 5no. James

It would have been, but sadly offer now ended and consider myself lucky to make a set of 5 from 2 suppliers due to stock limitations at the time.

If I decide they are too big I'll keep you in mind Wink

Don't do that, now you've got me dithering about wheels again - your ET0 Wolfs are Cool but would they be too wide with the wider/taller 255/85's Question

They look really great, but would they look better or worse with 255/85's Question

I have now realised the rim width has an impact on the look of the tyre, which is probably very obvious, but has taken me a day or two to understand why 235/85's look fatter on Wolfs (which I think are 6.5" wide) than they do on Zu's (which are 7" wide) Rolling Eyes

Also with the bigger tyre more offset may start to create rubbing issues with eyebrows at full articulation Confused

Soon I will have to make a decision on rims and many other things . . . . . . . . . . 1993 200tdi 90

Nope Exclamation Still in the garage Rolling Eyes

Been quite busy, but thinking I'll fit them to the Zu's due to preferable offset and rim width imho, but now have a set of genuine Wolf's (thanks Dan) that are an option Question

I used to be decisive, but now I'm not sure, so watch this space and thanks for asking . . . . . . . . 1993 200tdi 90

United Kingdom 2006 Defender 130 Td5 HCPU Alveston Red

Just fitted a set of these in 255/85/16s to a set of genuine Wolf rims for my 130. Have only been on for a few days but so far super stoked, don't seem to be noticeably noisier than the BFG ATs that they replaced, very pleased with them!
