hi lads any ideas if 35x12.5x15 will fit on my td5 defender 90 with a 2"lift,im running 33s at mo with no bother,i use her of road but its pretty light duty so no proper axle twisting stuff,also will it make much more difference to the acceleration and top end speeds,as always lads your help is much apprieciated and trusted,lance

Yes 35 inch tyres will go on.The biggest problem you will have is getting a set of 10 inch rims with good enough offset.The 90's i have seen usually have the bottom edges of the wings /spats trimmed on the front and the spats trimmed on the rear to get them to clear when the axles are articulated.On the site somewhere there is a picture of Bertie Bas's 90 (he's offshore at the moment) with big tyres on and also a 110 with 35 inch tyres on these will give you some idea how much clearance you will have with them on.

Don't think you will have much of a problem with gearing, being that it is a TD5.But 35 x12.50R15's are going to need new rims, you will need 5 of them , and then you have clearances to sort out.It's down to you but i think you will be better of sticking with 33s.

well thats it then i have decided,im going for courser mts 285x75x15 which come in at 33.10,with fitting then i am not going to be in for any nasty surprises latter on,285 should be wide enough t give it a good enough stance and i have got a set of 30mm spacers to use to push them out a little bit more if i feel the need,tanks again mr tyre mannie for your help and advice Very Happy

Hi have you got your new tyres and how are you finding them? I'm thinking of putting 285/75/16 on my disco any pictures would be great. Chris.
