Why not 235/85 out of interest?

I'd imagine the extra width of the 265 would help in Dubai's sand Cool Pete

Sorry to drag an old thread up.

Now people have run these for a while, what are people’s thoughts on them.

Cheers

I can't remember how long I have had them on my truck now but they have only ever let me down once and I don't think BFG muds would have helped much as it was gloopy 9" deep clay type mud and it clogged them up.

On the road they are great and quiet be it wet, dry, snowy or even to my amazement packed refrozen slush.

Off road on the gentle stuff I tend to do (fields and tracks) they seem to work well also.

In terms of wear I think they are doing well but as I say I can't remember when I put them on so can't offer a mm wear for x thousand miles.

I guess it comes down to would I buy them again..... more than likely. 1995 300 Tdi Epsom Green - It's a keeper.

Mine are going strong after 21k geussing there about half worn so think the mileage is good. Been very happy in every suituation I have put them in so far from green lanes to motorways. No at is ideal at any but these suit my driving perfectly and will probably replace with the same.

2004 Defender 110 Td5 DCPU Epsom Green

Covered about 3k miles on mine now. Fantastic on the road, quiet (considering the type of tyre), smooth ride and better MPG (vs Pros). Off road equally excellent, not as good as the Pros but thats a given. Only let me down once in about 1ft of clay otherwise perfect.

Highly reccomended from me!
