    Re: Buying a Renault Duster.

    When it comes to serious 4x4, you should try an aftermarket rear locker and/or a front LSD, tune-up the engine, lift by 25 to 30mm and go with 235/70R16 (like Bridgestone Dullers A/T) or if you are...

    Best 4x4 tires for deep sand

    Hello everyone. Which tire profile do you think is best for sand? ATs (All Terrain) or MTs (Mud Tracks)?

    Re: Renault Duster

    TX Butch. Well, I guess I will stay on 235/70R16 because the 235/65 (or 60) is also not that popular. The tire I want to fit does come in the 225/75 but 245/70 gives me an even wider range.

    Does someone have experience fitting 245/70R16 tires on the Duster? 30mm lift and 10mm wheel spacers should do the trick but did someone on the forum try that? I know 225/75R16 can be fitted on a...
