Grandad....Tyres

Hi again,
As a long-term 'wildyouth' of the 60's, I really can't believe that I'm writing this !!!
However; I love the look of 'Piglet's' 4x4...but the 'look' comes at a cost. As soon as you attack your road-tyres with a chisel you can kiss your insurance goodbye. Sorry.
If you are going for the 'butch' look, search around for cheap(ish) remould snow tyres. Generally speaking, the cheaper the tyre- the softer the rubber compound. The softer the rubber compound- the thicker the tread.
Some of the imported re-moulds have outlandish treads and...as long as you don't intend to go much over 50 will be fine for a couple of years..........but on good road surfaces you can almost see them wearing down.
It's all just one of life's compromises...........[8D]

HHmmmmmmm

Very true on the cut tyre front! I transport it on a trailer.

I did see some VERY interesting tyres at the weekend 27x10x12 road legal (on a quad)tyres, are there any 12" rims in the Fiat range?
