    Hello fellow nutters. I currently have Continental Cross Contact M&S 265/70 R16's fitted on my original 8J 1993 alloys. They have exceeded 30'000 road miles now and looking almost ready for renewal. However - there doesn't seem to be any more of these available in 265 or wider. I'm gutted...

    Front tyre rubbing (but just on the right hand side)

    Just swapped my tyres to 265/75r16 Cooper SST Pro and for some reason, the right hand front tyre rubs on the inner arch liner on right lock, but the left hand side is fine . Looks like the right hand wheel sits further back in the arch (towards the rear of the car) than the one on the left...

    Used tyre(s) wanted 35 OR 37 x 12.5 x 15 inch, any level of wear odd tyre or a set

    Unusual request but I'm mocking up my spring over axle fj45 and can't pick between 35s or 37s. Does anyone have any old tyres in 35 or 37 to fit 15 inch rim? I want to experiment and set final height / wheel offset before expense of a full brand new set. ideally AT rather than muds but if...

    Rear tyres wont spin

    I started my Cruiser today and put it into gear - but the old lady did not move. I jacked the car up and checked if the wheels are spinning - the front ones do, the rear ones only for a inch before they get stuck. Does anyone know what the reason could be?
