Thanks for sharing the pics, looks amazing. Wish I didn't live quite so far away from Scotland!

Been fairly quiet as of late (blame being busy as * with work etc.)

Fitted diff breathers a while back with the ARB kit and have just recently fired on BFG tyres in 235/75/15! Car looks and feels brilliant with them on.

Those make it look a lot better, less top heavy if that's possible.

Hi guys,

Ash, that makes the car look BEEFY and delicious! I love the way it gives it extra presence and a better stance (as lord lambo says).

I damn near wish id have go e with thr 235's now over 215's!. I also wish id have gone with the Goodyears too instead of the toyos. The open country's are an excellent balance on/off road and look good and are great and all, but as we've mentioned, the larger more agressive bf's look boss mate!.

Hows it affected the MPG and speed etc??
Edit: Ohhh and the white lettering ....... good choice mate.

Wow that's looks superb. Is that 235's on standard wheels? Are the sz4 wheels the same size as the alloys on the sz5 if I wanted to do the same?

Does the car feel more stable on tarmac?

Cheers Andy, well pleased with how they both feel and look.

I wrote this on the JB74 FB page:

“Car feels way more connected to the road/terrain and less skittish. Does feel somewhat heavier but in a good way, turning circle is slightly less and the acceleration has reduced a bit. Love them though, both aesthetics and performance off-road will deem them their worth”

I haven’t driven enough to get a decent MPG figure yet as I’m back at work however I’m expecting a few MPG less.

Alright dude, yep 235/75/15 on the standard SZ5 alloys. No rubbing yet, I don’t plan on lifting the car however If in a deep rut I’d maybe be concerned of rubbing up inside the arches so I might consider a small lift soon.

Not sure exactly the sizing difference between SZ4 & SZ5 alloys. I’d hate to say there isn’t a difference and be wrong, however can’t see why there would be if the standard tyres fit on both rims.

Cheers, Ash
