    Re: Highway Tyres for Pajero

    These days I think most tyres from reputable dealers/manufacturers are good. One just needs to chose one's requirements. Road and light off-road (like me), AT for those who spend a bit more time...

    Re: Highway Tyres for Pajero

    Just to conclude I ended up with Bridgestone D840s again. These were fitted as OEM tyres to my 2008 Pajero 3L Petrol I had purchased brand new and still had tread left when I sold it with 120K Km on...

    Thanks to all those that responded.
    Looking at Dunlop's site they have a plethora of tyres but I wonder how many are readily available.
    Also a few tyres I haven't heard of have been mentioned.

    Highway Tyres for Pajero

    On a somewhat different tack from other chats on tyres, I'm looking to replace my Pajero tyres (General Grabbers) with more H/T orientated tyres.
    Mainly one comes across either A/T or H/T tyres IRO...

    Re: Pajero 3.2 DiD Engine 'knock'

    After my annual December service in 2018 I developed this dreaded 'death rattle' from my engine when cold. At that service I had had the SCV replaced.

    That's my problem. There is no lubricity test in SANS 342.

    Vehicles designed to run on 500 ppm diesel will have parts designed (and tested) to run with diesel of that lubricity.

  21. SA Diesel Fuel specifications SANS 342:2016 - Lubricity

    The older 500 ppm Diesel fuels had good lubricity 'as produced'. However, with the requirement of low sulphur diesels the sulphur content has been reduced to 50 ppm (or lower elsewhere).
    However the...

    I'm in a similar situation with my 2008 Pajero. I have a 'surge' at around 2,000 RPM but it's a very light 'rmmmm...rmmmm...rmmm' type of noise.
