    Wheel and tyre sizes

    Hi. I have a freelander 2 (2011) it currently has 245/65/r17 tyres on it. I want to get some winter tyres and spare wheels as I am going to Europe. Winter tyres in a smaller size are about £50 less per tyre, so I was wondering if I could put 16” wheels on it with 215/75/r16 tyres on it without...

    Michelin Latitude Cross 235/85 vs 7.50/r16

    Does anyone have a photo or two of the Michelin Latitude Cross tyre in 235/85r16 on their defender? It's more common in 7.50/r16 on a Defender of course, but the wider 235 is £25 a tyre cheaper. I'm putting them on wolf rim so the extra width is not a problem, just curious as to what they...

    255/85 tyres other than mud terrain type

    Sorry if this has been covered sometime recently, the forum won't let me search by numbers like "255"? Anyone come across 255/85R16 size tyres that are not mud terrain types? i.e. all terrains or similar? I was hoping to go to this size but I don't want full-on mud tyres. Can't seem to find...
