Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)

You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.

Just changed tires on my VW T5 4x4 bus from 18" wheels with worn and slippery 235 50 18 to the more rugged 215 65 16 winter tires. The car is so much more pleasant to drive now.
So wondering if I should buy some cheap 16 inch alloys, and 225 70 16 BFG AT.

Will it look stupid?

Wife often comes back from trips with mud and dirt on the wheels so for the use it gets it not all pointless..

It's fairly common for tree surgeons, agricultural mechanics and such like to run them on vans to help get that bit further off road. They handle well enough on road and last longer than almost any other tyre so I can't really see a reason not to.

Yes get them bought! No other tyre seems to have such a good mix of ability and longevity :-)

Regularly see transit van around here with them on for winter.
