Got someone running Malatesta's, on a 300bhp competition car they seem to be staying together BUT.Before you part with your cash you may well want to ask the question to fellow F78 owners to see if anyone is running that combo on a F78 and see what they say as both makes are some of the largest diameter remoulds you will get.Expect a 265/75R16 to come out at 33 inches or so in diameter so you want to measure a couple of dozen times and buy once so enquire first as i said.

Well a question to ask is, why do you want these and for what use? If it's not 90% off road use, then one has to question why you'd want a tyre like this for road use.

Technically a 16x7 rim is fine for this size. But I can't help you on if they will work well on your vehicle.

FWIW I'm running 265//75R16 Insa Turbo Dakars on my 300tdi Disco, and they're a right pig on road, even worse in the wet and lots of howling.

I'm looking to get a set of road tyres soon as I've had enough of them (they came with the vehicle when I bought it)
