Tyres

Postby andyp » Sun Jan 06, 2019 12:27 pm

Hello,
Considering some new tyres and have seen some 900x16 michelin XS, h does anyone use these? I've heard they don't wear too well and are a bit lively in the wet Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Kind regards Andy

Lucky if you’ve found some new(ish) ones!! I have 4 which seem to have worn fairly well, but not found a spare...
I used to use them lots on a 2A bonnet control as 7.50x16 and yes they are “lively” in the wet, but then Landies don’t exactly corner like they’re on rails.... so depends how you drive!
As a 9.00 they are larger and better behaved than bar grips....
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it (unless it’s a Landy, then it always needs a tinker...)

1953 Series 1 that I dragged back from Tanzania
1995 last of the Soft dash RRC (proper Range Rover!)
And a few others.... :shock:
