    Mine did 60 000km on the original Bridgestone tyres and had a bit of tread left. Stock standard, no alignment issues, nothing. Yes, definitely the front tyres wear faster. If the tyres are left...

    Re: Jacking up to change big rubber

    It is funny because, to start off, the jack's stroke is less than the distance of lift needed to clear a 33" tyre. I sit with the same problem and no amount of wooden blokkies is going to solve that...

    Re: Newbie question: screw in tyre

    That is totally repairable. If possible, do not drive further with it. Let the tyre repairer inspect it and repair as needed.
    With luck it had not yet penetrated the casing.

    I think you nailed it, Frontiersman.

    With a vacuum leak you will still have (very) limited brakes but the pedal will be very hard. Easy test is to pump the brakes 3 or 4 times, keep...

    Re: Jimny 60k service fan belt news!

    I would think of 60k as low milage for a belt change but then age also plays a role. If it is perished, replace it immediately. Belts are cheaper than an engine repair.
